IMO . . . Chevrolet's first Muscle Car . . . 1962 Impala Super Sport 409/409hp




Bucket seats, 4 speed trans, console, extra chrome trim, available Spinner Wheel Covers (the whitewalls are a bit too large. Should be smaller in width) and Engine Callouts on the front fenders. It looks like a big car but in reality, it weighs about the same as a 1969 SS 396 Chevelle . . . 3500 lbs.

Chevy was VERY successful in NHRA Super Stock with the Bel Air 409 as seen below.

1972 429 Ranchero GT




The black painted hood was optional. As was Ram Air on both the 351-4V and the 429 though this one doesn't have it.

The Devils in the details . . .

This 1972 GTO with Rally II wheels should have trim rings. The only Pontiacs with Rally II wheels that did not have trim rings were the 1969 to 1971 Judge and the 1970 Trans Am.

Did you know . . .

Beginning in 1969, when ordering the TH350 or TH400 auto trans with console on the Firebird, you got Pontiacs new Rally Sport Speed Shifter. If you pushed it to the right (when starting out in 1 gear) you could manually shift the automatic without the risk of skipping a gear. Pull the gear shift all the way down then push to the right - you are in first gear. Accelerate then continue pushing to the right and push up - you are in 2nd gear. Repeat and you are in 3rd gear.

Hood pins were part of the Cowl Induction option. They were not a seperate option. This car shouldn't have them.
