🔵1965 Pontiac Vivant🔵
Herb Adams, the famed Pontiac engineer behind the Trans Am, the GTO Judge and the Super Duty 455, designed the Vivant right out of college, in about 1965, inspired by the Alfa Romeo B.A.T. concept cars from more than a decade prior. Though he worked for Pontiac at the time, he pursued the Vivant as a side project, without any assistance from Pontiac itself. Drawing on his experience as a competitor in the Fisher Body Craftsman’s Guild contests, he built a model of his design. That encouraged him to go ahead and build a chassis in his garage using Pontiac parts sourced from a junkyard, including a SuperDuty rear axle, full-size Pontiac eight-lug wheels, and a Pontiac 370-cu.in. V-8.
When it came time to build the complex body, he turned to a trio of Englishmen he met – Jack Henser, Harry Kennedy, and John Glover, collectively known as “The Beatles of Troy, Michigan” – who had been building race cars for such quarter-mile notables as the Ramchargers, Connie Kalitta, Don Garlits, and Tommy Ivo. Adams said they agreed to build the Vivant’s body out of aluminum as a calling card, and at a great discount versus what it would have cost to have gone through the same fabricators that did prototype work for GM at the time. They finished it around late 1965 or early 1966, in time for it to appear at the Detroit Autorama, but Adams was soon on to the next car and sold the Vivant to settle some debts he incurred while racing in SCCA Trans-Am.
It then went into hiding for the next 40 or so years, until a trio of investors in Ohio found it in storage.
