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 a
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 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 Chevy's two-speed Powerglide.
