1965 Pontiac Catalina 2+2 750hp DOHC 4-Cam Mercury Racing Engine Build Project

via Hand Built Cars ~ This 1965 Pontiac 2+2 was built for Barry Blomquist by the Roadster Shop in Mundelein, Illinois.

The car rides on a Roadster Shop Fast Track chassis with a fully independent suspension, tubular control arms, and Baer six-piston brakes.

A set of custom wheels designed by Roadster Shop and machined by Greening Auto Company hold Pilot Sport 295/35/19 (front) and 335/30/20 (rear) tires.

Under the hood sits a 7.0 L SB4 V8 built by Mercury Racing mated to a T56 six-speed manual transmission. The naturally-aspirated motor produces 750 horsepower at 8,000 rpm on 11.7:1 compression. The car received a Builder’s Choice Award at the 22nd Goodguys PPG Nationals in Columbus, Ohio.
