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.
1968 Catalina project car.
this is my catalina, i bought it for $700 from my boss and so far i've put in over $1,400 into it. it sat in his parking lot for 10 new york years, then i bought it and have repaired alot of this car, from a completely rebuilt brakes all around to the fresher 400, its not bad, its needs alot of work but looks good enough to be a driver. all that i've said i'll do to it in the video is temporary i have someone making estimates about the body work, catherine is coming close to looking great again. and if anyone knows any junkyards or just have spare parts lying around let me know, if your sellin' im buyin'.

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!
