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.

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!





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!

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. Owner: • Mike Artman





1961 Pontiac Catalina Convertible..tri-power
This is my Thanksgiving present to you! What a beautiful car...and a sleeper too if you just assume it's a "normal" Catalina! This is a tri-power motor, and it has a 4 speed manual transmission too! If we had only known at the time what a keeper this is...they would have had to make a lot more of these! I love those 8 lug wheels...Pontiac was ahead of the curve in supplying beautiful wheels for their cars!
