1985 Pontiac Tojan…., Considered quite ra re it’s estimated only around 150 uni ts were special ordered from 1984-89. GM 's Pontiac division took their already immense ly impressive Firebird and sent it to a thi rd party company called Knudsen Automotive, w ho would ultimately turn it into t he complete and utter crazy machine th at would go on to be nam ed the Pontiac Tojan. They did th is by replacing the Firebird's engine wi th an extremely tuned V8, fully upgradi ng its suspension, and remodeling its exteri or. The original concept had a 800 horsepow er bullet capable of doing a t op speed of over 200 miles an ho ur but was only a prototype of t he Tojan. The units that would e nd up going into production actually offer ed far lesser performance numbers. To be specif ic, about 250 Horsepower coming from a 5.7 lit er V8.
For the first time for a mid-ye ar introduction, the Marauder was introduced as a "196 3½" model (as was an entire li ne of new, "sports" models from Fo rd in many of the existing serie s). All 1963½ Marauders were two-door hardto ps. A 390 cubic-inch Marauder V8 w as standard, with a 427 cubic-inch Sup er Marauder V8 replacing a 406 V8 in 1964. Alo ng with 3-speed and 4-speed manual transmissio ns, a 3-speed "Multi-Drive Merc-O-Matic" automatic transmissi on was offered.

1971 Australia’s New Valiant….
1971 AMC Rebel “Go Machine” .. It was a one-year only package, a nd as soon as it arrived it disappear ed. Reports show that just around 60 or so we re made, and it could well be th at just a handful still exist. T he Go-Machine package was unique in th at it was merely a combination of specif ic performance options that could be order ed å la carte, meaning if a pers on were so inclined they could ord er a four-door Matador sedan or wag on with the same set of “Go-Machin e” options. The package itself was availab le with either the 360 V8 f or $373 or for $461 with t he 401-cubic-inch V8, featured a four-barrel carburet or, dual exhaust, the heavy-duty handling packa ge, power front disc brakes, E60-15 Goodye ar Polyglas raised-white letter tires, and 15×7-in ch styled steel wheels along with a spa ce saver spare.

By 19 74, Oldsmobile’s Indy pace car program w as in full motion, each new ye ar it was back to the “brickyar d” with a fresh version of t he Indy 500 pace car along wi th a limited supply of carbon co py high performance street versions. On ly 380 W-30 Hurst Olds designations produc ed in 1974. The remaining 1,420 versio ns had the smaller 350 cid v8 a nd were only sold in California. O ne quick way to tell the differen ce between a 350 V8 and a 455 V8 versi on is by looking at the fro nt fenders of the ’74 for a 350 it h as the Cutlass script and for t he 455 there are “W-30” deca ls in place of the Cutlass scri pt.
