1961 Pontiac Catalina Convertible..tri-power

This is my Thanksgiving present to you! What a beautiful car...and a sleeper too if you just assume it's a "normal" Catalina! This is a tri-power motor, and it has a 4 speed manual transmission too! If we had only known at the time what a keeper this is...they would have had to make a lot more of these! I love those 8 lug wheels...Pontiac was ahead of the curve in supplying beautiful wheels for their cars!

1963 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk
This is an auction car..ready for the gavel. Looks pretty good...missing a pushbutton on the driver's door handle. Notice the chrome bows in the interior roof...gives it the convertible look. 289 c.i. engine has a Paxton Supercharger. Studebaker did an excellent job with its instrument panels....dials and switches had that aeronautical appearance to them. I was always intrigued by these cars when a youngster.

1968 Plymouth Satellite GTX hardtop
What's not to like about this car! 440 c.i. engine with 4 barrel carb! Torqueflite automatic could stand up to this monster engine! Great interior, very clean engine compartment, red line tires and great wheels! These were the glory days for Plymouth...too bad they didn't continue!

1953 Chrysler Windsor 4 door sedan
This was an auction car...and a good example of a luxury car of 1953 presented to you by Chrysler! The fabrics were of high quality, and the engine in this series was a flathead 6. The senior models had the ohv V8. Chrysler was making the transition from semi-automatic fluid drive (this car) to Powerflite two speed automatic. Notice the quadrant on the steering column. 1954 would be the last year for the 6 cylinder engine.

1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner
1957 Fords have always been favorites of mine...I drove a 57 Fairlane 500 hardtop at one point...borrowed from a friend. Long and low, it impresses by its simplicity but it has elegance too. Those small fins are parallel to those on the 57 T-Bird....it was, after all, the "Ford Family of Fine Cars". Definitely a family resemblance! Great patterns for lively two tone color combinations!
