1965 Pontiac Catalina 2+2 Convertible Red Eustis112313
When you labor over a restoration for years, and spend real money..this is what you can end up with! This was no ordinary Catalina..it had the 421 cubic inch engine, four speed, bucket seats, upgraded suspension...a recipe for Catalina like the GTO was for the LeMans. The pride of ownership shows through this one!





PONTIAC - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY 405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60 degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).





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.
