Vehicle Description

1966 Pontiac Catalina Convertible

The Catalina name was originally applied to Pontiacs back in the 50's as a trim level. These were Pontiacs competitor to the Bel Air and all hardtops were considered Catalina's. In 1959 it became its own model and was Pontiac's entry level full size car. Despite being designated "entry level" they offered more amenities than Chevrolet's standard including larger motors while also coming in at a more affordable price point. In 1965 they were completely restyled and the split front grill section resembled that of the GTO. This cool Catalina is a well done car painted in its original Sun Golden Glow Yellow color. It did receive a repaint in the 90's. The color pairs nicely with the White convertible top that has also been replaced. The chrome and stainless is in good condition throughout as is the original glass. The hubcaps feature a knock off style design and came off a 1965 Pontiac. They are 14s and the thin white wall tires have plenty of life left in them.

One cool thing about this Pontiac is the car was factory ordered with some unique options like air conditioning, power brakes, and power steering. It isn't often cars of this vintage got some of these more luxurious features. Under the hood, the car has what is believed to be a 400 cubic inch V8 that came out of a later 1969-1970 Pontiac. The motor starts up and runs well with no smoking. Everything has been kept mostly stock except for the added finned billet air cleaner and valve covers. The motor is combined with an Automatic transmission that shifts smoothly. The suspension is the stock set up but it has been gone through we all new ball joints and bushings in the front.

The interior of the car truly is in great shape. It has Black upholstery and the seats, carpet, door panels, etc all look good. It has its original split bench seat up front and bench in rear. The dash has a mostly stock appearance and all of the gauges are working correctly. Even the clock works which is pretty unique considering most classics we have encountered don't have a working clock anymore. These cars had a pretty cool design for the gauges where the Fuel, Amp, and Clock gauges were framed in nice trim and slightly angled towards the driver. Being a factory AC car it also has all the adjustable vents inset into the dash however the AC is not currently working. The trunk of the car is all carpeted and houses a spare.

This cool Convertible will bring you many hours of cruising enjoyment. It shows well and is being offered up at a very reasonable price.

Make it yours for $19,850.00!
