For Sale: 1965 Pontiac Catalina in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

It's been called the big brother to the GTO. Treated to a comprehensive restoration, this 1965 Pontiac Catalina 2+2 exemplifies the full-size performance car genre, and it is one of only 8815 Special Equipment Catalinas with automatic transmissions produced in 1965. The original YH-suffix 421 cubic inch four-barrel engine powers the car. The sheer size of this model is an expression of elegance, as is the Nightwatch Blue exterior color. In combination with an interior shade called Blue Charcoal, this 2+2 was well ahead of its time from a standpoint of style. The 421 is a big-car engine that wasn't even available on the GTO. With it's 10:5:1 compression ratio, high-lift cam, large-diameter valves, and dual exhaust, this mill generates a stump-pulling 459 lb-ft of torque at just 2800 rpm, along with a healthy 338 horsepower. The Turbo 400 transmission was new for '65 and is the perfect choice for a big car with big power. Of course, a key benefit of a full-size car is a roomy interior. This one isn't just big, it's beautiful. The dash board is the work of skilled craftsmen with world-class brightwork and appointments. Functionality is top notch too with handsome instruments including a factory tach. With the automatic, a floor shifter and center console were optional, and this car has them. A deep-dish, 3-spoke custom sports steering wheel is your connection to a fine-handling chassis with heavy-duty suspension, shocks, and stabilizer bar. Braking is ably handled by power assisted Kelsey-Hayes 8-lug integrated wheel/brake drums. This system provides effective braking plus the unique and attractive wheels that are a favorite of Pontiac enthusiasts and collectors. The final classic detail is the BFGoodrich Silvertown whitewall tires. Pontiac performance was at a pinnacle in 1965, and this simply stunning Nightwatch Blue 2+2 is a prime example.
