1964 PONTIAC CATALINA VENTURA with FACTORY ICE COLD A/C!!!
This is a Custom and Rather Rare, Nicely Optioned 1964 Pontiac Catalina VenturaStreet Rod. There weren’t many of this model produced to begin with and the survivors are few and far between. This car has, over the past several years, gone through a FULL RESTORATION that has just been completed. This eye catching Base Coat/Clear Coat Reverse Scallop Teal Green over Sunlit Sand Silver paint scheme and Interior was chosen to respectfully pay tribute to the Custom Street Rods and Low Riders of yesteryear yet still retain some of its classic original features. The chassis has been lowered two (2) inches in the front and is of stock height in the rear giving this car a very aggressive stance. This car was undercoated from the factory and still retains most of that original undercoating. The underside of the car has been cleaned and re-undercoated where necessary and the frame repainted in flat black. The entire underside of the car has been detailed and is nearly as nice as the topside. A brand new gas tank with new sending unit and pickup has been installed. The engine and automatic transmission have been completely rebuilt.
Other than the paint and interior some of the other custom features of this car include the 64 Grand Prix headlight bezels, grill and parking lights as well as 64 Grand Prix rear fender extensions, backup and tail lights and rear finned chrome bezel. Red LED lights were installed in the rear finned bezel in place of the factory GP tail lights and inside the GP backup lights. Brand new backup lights were installed in the factory Catalina bumper locations. Door handles and door mounted mirrors have been shaved and Custom mini roadster mirrors have been modified and mounted on the vent window frames. Door poppers have been installed to open the doors. A remote is included for the door poppers.
KMC 17x8 Chrome Billet Venom Wheels wrapped in low profile Kumho Ecsta ASX tires were chosen to complete the LOW, SLEEK, STALKING LOOK!!!

The front and rear bumper were just re-chromed and looks FANTASTIC. The exterior stainless is over-all nice for its age. All other exterior chrome is in good original condition with very little pitting. The doors open and shut easily and the hinges are tight. Body panels appear to line up well. All exterior emblems have been replaced with new reproductions.

The 1964 VENTURA was a sub-model of the Catalina line of cars and was designed to be a sporty classy version of the Catalina with the factory tri-tone interior and all of the available chrome features offered on the Catalina. This car not only has style and luxury but it performs well with a factory horse power rating of 333 HP/330ft. lbs Torque plus the additional performance upgrades noted above. This car is a fantastic driver and I would not hesitate to drive it across the country and back just as you see it.
