Any historians out there can positively verify there was or was not a Pontiac Grand Am 455 super duty built.. there is one on YouTube and I have friend who swears his dad's buddy had a '73 Grand Am 455 super duty. Can anyone verify one way or the other with any certainty?

Here is an interesting account: http://www.classicalpontiac.com/ga/

The quote below pretty well answers your question:
"Despite rumors to the contrary, and the existence of press photographs depicting a 455 Super Duty version of the Grand Am, no such animal was released to the public. The single car produced with this potent motor was scrapped by Pontiac in the mid to late 70s. Unfortunately the 455 HO never left the factory in a Grand Am engine compartment, either."

If you look at the bottom of this account, you will see that it is from a fellow of the Grand Am Registry, so I would tend to believe his information.
