For Sale: 1963 Pontiac Catalina in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Bright red paint, an A/C interior, a rumbling V8 under the hood, and a five-speed upgrade make for an awesome full-size hardtop cruiser. And as you dig deeper, you're going to find even more desirable features on this 1963 Pontiac Catalina.

The bright red paint gets plenty of attention. It's a vibrant look made better by a quality application. And a car like this is worth having extra eyes drawn to it because Pontiacs really were entering their own stratosphere of cool in this era. Stacked headlights stretched to the edges made room for dual wide grilles to drive home the Wide Track look. In the back, the taillights look like an extension of the big chrome bumper. A full-size car like this was an opportunity to offer some impressive lines and Pontiac's designers took full advantage. You see it in the way the full-length trim looks like a long arrow pointing the car forward. And the Coke-bottle curves get added definition from that bright strip that rides the fender from the door all the way to the taillight. And while you can tell there have been solid investments to retain this classic style, there's something more going on here. The competition-style torque thrust wheels and large dual exhaust tips signal this wants to own the boulevard.

Inside is a well-done interior with great factory-style features and subtle upgrades. The front seat has plenty of space, and those artful inserts have more color stripes than a candy cane. And the headliner, carpets, and door panels all have a detailed quality look. So you just know you're going to leave all the windows down on this pillar-less hardtop so people can get a good look inside. You can also bring plenty of them along in this roomy coupe. There are terrific features for everyone, like an iPod stereo, power windows, and air conditioning. Of course, it's the driver who will always like this one the best. You have an artful steering wheel, a wide speedometer, and a classic-style tach that goes nicely with the floor shifter.

Fans of the GTO know the Pontiac 389 cubic-inch V8, and it's a great powerplant to have here, too. There's a clean display where it's easy to showcase the turquoise block and all those polished components. It has been upgraded with an Edelbrock AVS2 four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. Plus, it's supported by all the right pieces, like a March serpentine belt system, a newer alternator, an Optima red top battery, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. The motor has a strong-running nature that comes from good care, and this one also has a terrific surprise for real V8 fans. There are electric cutouts for the dual exhaust so that you can get an unfiltered rumble whenever you want. And you're in complete control of the power and its soundtrack thanks to the upgraded five-speed manual transmission. Power brakes, power steering, and an updated suspension give this a solid cruiser attitude.

A V8 hardtop that's equal parts power and flair never goes out of style. That's why you know this Catalina is the right one for you. Call today!!!
