1969 Pontiac Ventura Being Restored
Take note, GM. 40 years from now, will people be taking the time and energy to restore CTS's, Lucernes and FWD Impalas to their original conditions? Doubtful.
Here's a jewel from your glorious past, being restored by Chicago mechanic Dave Armstrong. This '69 Ventura (a trim package on the Catalina in the 1960's) spent almost all of its life in Palm Springs. That brown coating you see on the rear undercarriage and differential isn't rust -- it's sand. When it's power-washed, it'll look as clean as the underside from the differential forward.
It's great to see the front end without the fenders, showing off that 428 V8, disc brakes and front suspension in all their glory.
As you can see, that's the original Harrison air conditioning unit. Black Morrokide upholstery and Pontiac 5-spoke mag wheels will complete the picture. It'll be another showpiece, just like his green Firebird 400.
Dave's also got a red Firebird Ram Air convertible. But that's another video;)

1968 PONTIAC CATALINA CONVERTIBLE - BEAKED GRILLE CONTINUES
Most car makes years ago could be identified by a certain look, a certain design. This year the '68 Pontiac tradition continues with it's wide-track stance and the familiar beaked grille causing instantaneous recognition that this is indeed a Pontiac. The large Pontiacs came in 3 models: The Catalina, Executive, and the Bonneville. Engines available for these large Pontiacs were the 400 cid, 265 hp., 290 hp., 340 hp., or the 428 cid with between 375 - 390 horses. All engines are V8's. Only 7,339 '68 Catalina convertibles were made that year. Whereas the only other Pontiac model to make convertibles was the Bonneville with 7,358 units made. This recently restored Catalina use to be the owner's college transportation and a lot of time, funds and sweat was taken to bring this back to factory. So check it out and see if you can keep from falling for this Pontiac baby. Thanks very much for viewing this 1968 Pontiac Catalina convertible.
1968 Pontiac Catalina Sedan
This is old footage taken back when I was 18 of my first project car. I apologize for the low overall quality and framerate. It was a '68 Catalina sedan with a Pontiac 400 mated to a 2bbl and turbo 400 underneath. I was running this car with a 2.5" single open Exhaust right after the factory y-pipe. The entire system was probably only five feet long, and boy was it l-o-u-d. I'm surprised I never got a ticket for noise violation! Some friends and I painted it flat black by hand with brushes, and did the grille in a semi-gloss.
This car was seriously cool, but it was just too far gone for an 18 year old kid to do a whole lot with. We got it up and running out of purgatory, but rust had pretty much destroyed the body, the interior was awful and the carb needed a lot of attention. Luckily it went to someone who was able to use all its best parts!
