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.





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!





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.





1960 PONTIAC CATALINA CONVERTIBLE, AN ORIGINAL SURVIVOR
PONTIACS FOR 1960 WERE STILL " WIDE TRACK" BUT GONE ARE THE FINS OF THE FIFTIES. THIS CONVERTIBLE IS ONE OF 17,172 CATALINA CONVERTIBLES PRODUCED THIS YEAR. 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.

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.

Rare 1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible Fuel-Injected 347 V8 315HP
I thought you'd like a look at this extremely rare 1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible. 1957 was the first year for the Bonneville and it was only offered as a convertible. When it was introduced, the Bonneville was the fastest Pontiac ever produced. This Bonneville is number 116 of the only 630 produced in 1957. This is probably the finest restored example ever offered for sale. It has been treated to a correct frame-off/rotisserie restoration. Every part of this car is 100% factory correct and numbers matching. Every component was restored to as new or better condition. Most of the chrome was NOS and it all, the interior and exterior was show chrome plated. The Bonneville is painted in Kenya Ivory with a Tartan red interior. Boasts a fuel injected 347 300+hp( approximately 315 HP) V8, Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, Wonderbar AM radio, a deluxe ivory steering wheel, a padded dash, a clock, cowl vent, chrome wheel discs, and whitewall tires. It has the total power group including a power-operated convertible top, a power antenna, power steering, power brakes, power windows, and an eight-way power-operated seat. This Bonneville was judged 396 out of 400 at the Pontiac Oakland Club Nationals and has been awarded in every show it's been shown at. The 1957 Bonneville is a very rare car. This Bonneville is one of the best of its kind in the world - it is pristine museum quality. Thanks for taking a look!
