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!





1965 Pontiac Catalina 2+2 421 tri power, A/C, certified auto appraisal Orlando Florida 800-301-3886
This is one rare Pontiac! Not a real 3 deuce car, but a real 421 4 barrel. Auto appraiser Jason Phillips remarks "....the mosport green was a 66 only color on Corvettes, but I'm not sure how long Pontiac used it..." The resto would have looked nicer with real floor pan sections, instead of flat steel, but that will work. Home Depot style rivets in the cowl tag could have been avoided.....it's not like OEM style rivets aren't available! It's "hack" level of detail like this that will keep it from doing all the money at this auction. Watch the sale on Saturday, 1-26 and see what it brings. The purchaser sent us out to define this car, which we did through the use of over 300 still photos, and a written report. Do you require service like this?

1962 Pontiac Catalina 421 Super Duty - Gateway Motorsports Park - Huge Wheelie
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV This is a video of an awesome 9 Second, 1962 Pontiac Catalina. This Super Stock Pontiac was racing in the Nostalgia Drags at Gateway Motorsports Park, just outside of St. Louis, MO. It's an original 421 Super Duty car and man do they have it set up right. This thing hooks hard and leaves straight every time. Definitely nothing wrong with a mid 9 second quarter mile at 143 mph. I thought you might get a kick out of that huge wheelie he pulled on the one run. I hope you found it interesting....thanks for watching!

1965 Pontiac Catalina Commercial - 271,0000 were built in 65
1965 saw a complete restyle of the full sized Pontiac cars. There's no doubt that the Catalina was one of the prettiest! GM really dominated the style department of the automakers in the mid to late 60's after falling behind Ford and Chrysler in the late 1950's. They were clearly dominating again





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).
