For Sale: 1966 Pontiac Catalina in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1966 Pontiac Catalina Ventura has to be one of the coolest ways to get attention at the car shows. A bright and factory-correct hardtop sedan with a big 389 V8 under the hood is definitely an irresistible classic. There is so much nostalgic originality inside and out that it perfectly captures a bygone era.

We were told this is a three-owner car, the first two of which were father and son. In fact, it's believed that this Pontiac spent nearly a half-century under its first family's care. That's how you get such a well-preserved total package. But this one also did not let history sacrifice its style. The factory-correct Cameo Ivory was given a high-quality respray in 2014 and has been treated with respect ever since. The family heirloom level of attention means the long lines of this hardtop sedan look terrific today. And when you feel how well all four doors shut with authority, you'll realize just how carefully this car was kept. The Wide Track face up front and such a nicely integrated rear bumper give this the right mix of intimidation and sophistication. So the upgrade to Cragar 17-inch wheels and redline tires fit the era and attitude nicely. Plus, all its trim, fender skirts, and other essential details are present to make it a showstopper.

The full black interior has the appeal of formalwear, especially with the level of loaded that comes on this sedan. The two wide rows of bench seats have plenty of room for everyone, and it has a terrific classic style with textured cloth inserts and button-top seatbacks. This has a very vintage style but has a far fresh feel from a proper investment, and the same goes for the carpeting. Plus, the black door panels, headliner, and dash also look great for an inviting atmosphere. Even the factory steering wheel even fits into the color theme, and the translucent elements are all part of that great time capsule feeling when individual style was top priority at each automaker. You'll love how this one was built to be a true premium classic with features like the AM/FM radio, large auxiliary gauges, and cruise control. It even has the distinct Automatic Temperature Control unit and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And because this one is so well preserved and presented we love the hardtop setup. It means you can roll down all the side glass and let people get a really good look inside.

Pop the hood and see that great blue block radiating from inside the engine bay. The 389 cubic-inch V8 with a dual-barrel carburetor is the correct motor for this Catalina. It's the year-correct block, and from the history that we were told about this car, it's easy to believe this is the original powerhouse. We were also told the engine was rebuilt in 2010, and the way this one fires up so easily and runs so well reaffirms the feeling of good care and investment. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and modern touring tires, and this makes for the perfect choice to float down the road on a Sunday drive.

Complete with a reproduction window sticker, this is the cool/classic/preserved/loaded sedan that's a mix of the best care and the right investments. Call now!
