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.





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.





1962 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster Convertible
This beautiful example has the twin tonneau caps that disguise this four seater as a two seater! The sports roadster tonneau was only offered on the 1962 and 1963 models. Very sporty indeed! Notice the "swing-away" steering wheel and column...made getting in and out of the vehicle easier.





1961 Pontiac Bonneville Hardtop Slvr
Beautiful car, with a 1962-63 replacement Pontiac racing engine. The ultimate in beauty and performance. Admittedly, not for someone who can't afford the fuel, but this car makes a real performance statement!

CATALINA MODELS ARE THE BOTTOM RUNG PONTIACS FOLLOWED BY VENTURA, STAR CHIEF, AND AT THE TOP, BONNEVILLES. NOT SHOWN IN THIS VIDEO IS THE 389 CID V8 ENGINE AVAILABLE FOR CATALINA WITH 283 BHP FOR AUTOMATICS OR THE SAME ENGINE WITH 215 BHP FOR MANUAL TRANSMISSIONS. THE CATALINA USED A 122 INCH WHEELBASE AND THE CONVERTIBLES WEIGHED 3,940 LBS. THE SRP IS $ 3,078. THE INTERIOR OF THIS PONTIAC IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE HOWEVER THE EXTERIOR PAINT IS A LITTLE WORN AS YOU CAN TELL BY THE TRUNK LID WHERE SOME RUST IS COMING THROUGH. AT ANY RATE YOU ARE LOOKING AT A RARE ORIGINAL SURVIVOR AND I'M SURE NOT TO MANY 1960 PONTIAC CONVERTIBLES ARE AROUND TO ATTEND CAR SHOWS. THANKS FOR VIEWING THIS 60,000 MILE ORIGINAL SURVIVOR PONTIAC CONVERTIBLE.

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.





1956 Pontiac Star Chief Low Mileage Survivor 317 V8 - Gateway Classic Cars
I thought you'd like a look at this very original 1956 Pontiac Star Chief. This amazing survivor has only 74,xxx original miles on the odometer. It's powered by the factory 317 V8, backed by an automatic trans. It has all original interior and even the factory Air Conditioning. You won't find too many out there like this anymore. It has a cool patina to it, that can only be built up over decades of use. If it were me, I would leave this car as it is and just have fun cruising it. I hope you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

1964 Catalina Convertible





1966 PONTIAC CATALINA CONVERTIBLE -- INDEPENDENT SERIES THIS YEAR
1966 was the year that Pontiac turned 40 years old and in June of this year built it's 11 millionth car. This year also, model year production increased to 30,000 units for a total of 830,778. Good year for Pontiac. As Pontiac muscle cars were the mid-size mainstay, the Pontiac 2+2 and the Catalina convertible like this one were an independent series. These were the only Pontiac models that had a standard 421 cid V8 with 376 bhp, in a three 2 barrel form. But you could also order a V8, 389 cid / 290 - 360 bhp for your Catalina. There were only 14,837 Catalina convertibles made this year and it would cost you around $3,219 bucks to buy one. Under the leadership of John DeLorean, Pontiacs not only had the looks but the muscular engines to power them. Notice the famous wide track stance of this Catalina with it's split grille, tremendous rear quarter panel, flaired sheetmetal running along the bottom length, and spacious interior. It's no wonder why these large bodied Pontiacs sold so well. Thanks very much for viewing this 1966 Pontiac Catalina convertible.
