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!

1961 Pontiac Catalina tri-power convertible
Now this is the car to have!! Beautiful paint, interior and engine compartment. According to the owner, less than 20 remaining. This type car was built for racing with that 389 triple carb engine, 348 horsepower, and four speed manual transmission. Note how accessible everything was under the hood! Most amazing is that this car is unrestored. That just goes to prove that if you take really good care of a car, it can look like this 50 years later!! And you can drive it, too!

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!

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.

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!
