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.

If you're looking for a unique and impressive classic that'll draw big
crowds and elicit long stares wherever you go, this Tri-power convertible
is your ticket!
Despite being delivered to Burnett Pontiac in Cincinnati, Ohio, this
awesome Catalina has spent the majority of its 47 years as a resident of
the hot and dry south. During the car's recent restoration, all its
original rust-free body panels were aligned to better than factory
standards and sprayed in a correct coat of GM code N Burgundy Red
basecoat/clearcoat. Naturally our skilled restoration staff in Mentor
wanted the car to look its absolute best when unveiled; so they
color-sanded its burgundy profile to highlight the body's arrow-straight
panels, and buffed every inch of its clearcoat into a mirror-like shine.
Take a look under this Catalina's long, beaked hood and you'll find a 421
cubic inch Tri-power V8 which was delivered from the factory with an
impressive 356 horsepower. Topping the
motor is three chrome GTO-style air cleaners which funnel wind into three
freshly rebuilt Rochester two-barrel carburetors. The resultant air/fuel
mixture passes through a correct cast iron intake manifold to factory-spec
internals which are housed in a correctly painted Pontiac Turquoise engine
block. At the sides of that block, original heads hang pristine chrome
valve covers above reproduction factory-style high output Exhaust manifolds. And at the back of that
block, a traditional points distributor shoots sparks into a fresh set of
high performance Taylor plug wires. At the front of the car's engine bay a
correct radiator, which has been equipped with two quick spinning electric
pusher fans, sits under a correct shroud that features a nicely placed
"421" emblem. On the left side of the engine bay, you'll find a correct
reproduction Delco battery in front hardware for optional power steering
and optional power brakes. And on the right side of the engine bay, you'll
find an old school GM washer fluid bottle.
Underneath this plus sized rag top, a new for 1965 turbo-Hydramatic transmission sends power to a
reliable 8.75 inch limited slip rear end that's held off the ground by a
newly rebuilt heavy duty suspension. Housed within that suspension is
correct optional 'Wonder Touch' power steering, new Monroe rear air shocks
and correct optional power brakes which have been updated with new front
discs and new ceramic pads. Above that suspension, exceptionally clean
floors are covered in a thin coat of undercoating to guard from moisture.
And thanks to the recent rebuild, the car is equipped the with a new high
torque starter, a solid, painted fuel tank, fresh brake lines and correct
factory chalk marks. Exhaust is
handled by a new 2.5 inch aluminized system that's fitted with an H-pipe
crossover and aggressive turbo mufflers
which give the car a deep, vintage sound. And power flows to the pavement
through a brand new set of 15 inch Cragar wheels which spin a nice set of
225/70 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around graphite gray spokes.
Inside this sunny day road warrior, you'll find a correct code 297 black
vinyl interior which is the ideal complement to the car's Burgundy Red
exterior paint. The optional custom front and rear bench seats, which
feature the first of a complete set of new speakers, have been
professionally restored and feel as firm and comfortable as the day they
left the factory. Below those seats, fresh black carpet anchors cool Fisher
seat belts between heavy duty rubber floor mats and chrome trimmed foot
pedals. And in front of those seats a classy dash, which features updated
LED backlighting, hangs a horizontal speedometer between a correct factory
tachometer, a freshly rebuilt clock, an MP3 compatible Pioneer CD player
and Auto Meter Carbon Fiber Ultra-Lite accessory gauges. Connecting the
driver to the road is a wood-rimmed steering wheel which spins around a new
tilt column and a solid chrome gear selector. And behind the cockpit, a new
black convertible boot snaps down above a fully restored trunk which
includes a correct mat, a full-size spare tire, a correct jack, a correct
jack decal and a functional 'reel-out' courtesy light.

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.

1968 Pontiac Catalina Drum To Disc Brake Conversion Part 16 final
DONE! I just picked my car up from the the tire place. They hooked up the
new brake lines and other fiddly hardware. She stops with more authority
now, and doesn't lurch all over the road when the brakes are applied.
Turning is SMOOTH with the new/refurbished components. :) The owner's
teenage son even gave her a much needed bath! I haven't been able to get
the parts I need to finish fixing the driver's window so that it will roll
up and down, but I should have them soon. I need to rekey her and replace
the trunk lock (currently consisting of a screwdriver). The cheap paintjob
I had done on her is flaking on the hood (it was a problem area to start
with). The electrical needs some attention (no right turn signal, brake
lights work but marker lights don't, I've got a short somewhere). I also
need to get the port side Exhaust
rerouted to go OVER the centerlink so that it won't interfere with my
steering. On to the next project! Thanks to everyone who had encouraged me
and provided advice (the Poncho mailing list), moral support (Mom and the
Poncho list), and ceaseless mockery (Mom and the Poncho list, but mostly
1968 Pontiac Catalina Sedan
This is old footage taken back when I was 18 of my first project car. I
apologize for the low overall quality and framerate. It was a '68 Catalina
sedan with a Pontiac 400 mated to a 2bbl and turbo 400 underneath. I was running this car with
a 2.5" single open Exhaust right after
the factory y-pipe. The entire system was probably only five feet long, and
boy was it l-o-u-d. I'm surprised I never got a ticket for noise violation!
Some friends and I painted it flat black by hand with brushes, and did the
grille in a semi-gloss.
This car was seriously cool, but it was just too far gone for an 18 year
old kid to do a whole lot with. We got it up and running out of purgatory,
but rust had pretty much destroyed the body, the interior was awful and the
carb needed a lot of attention. Luckily it went to someone who was able to
use all its best parts!
