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!

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.





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!





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.

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!

Big Burnouts: 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari - /BIG MUSCLE
If you haven't figured it out by now, we love wagons on this show. To some they're a misunderstood breed, but to those in the know, they're amazing. Not only were the wagons of yesteryear known for their styling, but their capacity to haul as much cargo as a modern day pickup. This 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari started off life as a Police Wagon, but was transformed by its owner into the kick-ass, tire-shredding monster you see here. With a Nelson Racing Engines 468 cid big-block under the hood, some updated suspension bits and a killer look, this big green machine is outside-the-box styling at its best. Owner: • Mike Artman
