For 1959, Pontiac dropped the name "Chieftain" and "Super Chief"
models for its entry level model and renamed it "Catalina", while
demoting the former top-line Star Chief to mid-line status
eliminating the two door StarChief Catalina, the only hardtop for
the StarChief was the four door hardtop and expanding the
Bonneville nameplate to a full flagship series that included
sedans, coupes, convertibles and Safari station wagons.
In the lower-priced Catalina line, Pontiac division advertising
placed higher emphasis on the top trimmed two- and four-door
hardtops, convertible and Safari station wagons instead of the
pillared two- and four-door sedan variants despite the fact that
the four-door sedan was the best seller in this line.
The Catalina, though it was the lowest-priced full-sized Pontiac,
was priced and trimmed below the Chevrolet Impala due to GM's
overlapping price structure formula only a step below the Buick
LeSabre and Oldsmobile 88 in trim and appointments but priced about
$100 to $200 less. Catalinas also came standard with more amenities
than Chevrolet models and included a larger and more powerful V8
engine of 389 cubic inches, compared to the Chevy's six-cylinder or
283 and 348 cubic-inch V8s. Pontiacs also benefited from a much
better automatic transmission than their Chevrolet counterparts -
the four-speed Hydra-Matic - versus the Chevy's two-speed
