Hi Skip

I try to make at least a few posts per day. Some days it's easy while others are not.

Not yet. IMO it was a Muscle Car - 4 speed and Turbocharged. Before the GTO too.

The big changes for 1963, however, came in the form of a crash diet that saw the Catalina shed roughly another 270 pounds over the previous year’s car, putting the 1963 factory lightweight Catalina at a truly impressive 3,300 pounds. To achieve this, engineers cut the car’s box frame to form a U-shaped frame, then set to work cutting approximately 120 holes in the steel frame to shed weight (and, presumably, leave the frame just strong and rigid enough for competition). It was this distinctive lightening that gave rise to the car’s “Swiss cheese” nickname, but the weight savings didn’t stop there. Like the 1962 cars, the new versions benefited from the extensive use of aluminum in front end components and the deletion of all sound-deadening material, and further weight savings were realized by deleting the front anti-roll bar (the lightweight Catalinas, Pontiac rationalized, would not be cornered aggressively). Big gains came in the form of thinner-gauge aluminum stampings for the front fenders, hood, and other non-stressed members, as well as the use of aluminum (instead of cast iron) for the exhaust manifolds. While this change alone saved 45 pounds, the design was not without its faults; if run too long, the hot exhaust gasses from the Super Duty 421 were capable of melting the aluminum exhaust manifolds. Just 14 “Swiss cheese” Catalinas were built, going to established Pontiac drag racers, including Mickey Thompson, Union Park Pontiac, and Maselles at Packer Pontiac.

What if . . .

1964 289 HiPo Ford Falcon





None were produced for sale in the USA . . . but a handful were made in Canada.
