From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

Drag racing is a long-standing sport with a storied history. You know what they say about the very first drag race; it occurred shortly after the second car was built! Due to the immense history of drag racing, nostalgic old-school race cars are as popular as they have ever been, and this 1962 Pontiac Grand Prix is no exception. Built as a Pro Stock drag car, this Pontiac has a plethora of serious, high-dollar upgrades including a ton of horsepower and immense weight-reduction. This car not only walks the walk, but it talks the talk too-big time! The hood and doors are made of carbon fiber, and the fenders and trunk lid are fiberglass. Additionally, the bumpers are fiberglass replacements that have been chromed to retain that nice, original look. Though it is clearly a race car, the original styling of the Grand Prix has been retained in this Pro Stock build, giving it an overwhelming sense of nostalgia. Under the hood is a 541 cubic inch engine putting out 900 horsepower. That would be more than enough in a normal Grand Prix, but wait-theres more! Remember all those carbon fiber panels? You may be wondering what the advantage is. Because of the extent of weight-reduction modifications, this car weighs in at 3,190lbs including a 250lbs driver. Thats 800-1,000lbs less than a factory unmodified Grand Prix! Combine that weight with 900 horsepower, and youre looking at some serious speed. That beautiful power-to-weight ratio is what allows this big body beauty to do well under a 10-second quarter mile. This Pontiac is a serious race car; its both big and quick! It is tasteful and well put together with many engine, body, and chassis upgrades. It even has a roll cage! If youre looking for a powerful nostalgic racer, this is the car for you. It has only had four quarter mile passes put on it since built, and one certainly couldnt replicate this car for the price! This is a nice, solid example of a well-executed classic drag car. Built by MPR Race Cars (Mike Pustelny Racing) Engine built by Danny Bruce and Al Moody Chris Howe at John Kaase Racing Engines did port & polish and flowed heads Has a VIN and title, license plate. This car is street legal! Engine is 541 cubic inches with almost 900 HP and 750 ft-lbs torque JPT Turbo-400 transmission with a transmission brake Runs high 8s, low 9s Initial pass was a 9.32 at 144MPH using the foot brake and with a broken crank trigger!
