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.

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!

70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown. I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why, I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.

According to records, approximately 660 of these convertibles were built in 1955 and it is unknown how many survive today. This example is powered by the stout 235 cubic inch inline 6 cylinder engine and is a pleasure to drive.
