Description:

1966 Pontiac Catalina

This is a 1966 Pontiac Catalina convertible. I purchased this vehicle approximately 4 years ago I was told at that time that the engine and transmission were rebuilt, I have no reason to doubt that, but I do not have any documentation to verify. I have owned the vehicle but never had time to actually enjoy and drive the vehicle. There is a clear title in my name but I never put license plates on it it. I changed the wheels and tires, did a few minor things, and bought the 8 lug wheels for it.
Overall this is a nice driver vehicle It drives good, and looks good.
Body and paint.
The vehicle has been repainted and has filler in it. There is no visible rust but there are a few minor bubbles under the paint in rear quarters. The paint is NOT show quality and has typical scratches and chips. Paint shows well but again not show quality.
Engine and transmission.
Engine is a 389 with aftermarket intake and carb. I believe it is the original engine but have never checked it. The car runs and shifts well but has been sitting and needs to be driven. I would say the belts, hoses, and spark plugs should be changed before any long distance driving is done. The power steering pump whines a bit on hard turns but nothing major.
Interior.
The interior and carpet are in excellent condition.
Tires
are in excellent condition with like new tread. The 8 lug wheels are in fair condition and need to be relined to be used, the tires on the 8 lug wheels are junk.
Convertible top
The top is in excellent condition with no rips or tears. The top does not work automatically. When I bought the car the hydraulic pistons, and the dash switch were missing. I have used pistons and dash switch, that will be included with the car, but the were never installed.
Bumpers are shiny and in good condition but chrome is a little thin.
Odometer shows 80,000 but I do not know if it is accurate. This is not a Michigan car. the car was from North or south Carolina but I bought it in Virginia. It does not seem to have been abused.
This is either a nice driver as is, or with some work it could be a very very nice car. This vehicle is sold "AS IS" with NO WARRANTY, or GUARANTEE whatsoever. Transportation, and shipping cost are the entire responsibility of the buyer. I will do whatever I can to assist with shipping excluding paying for it. Please ask questions before bidding. I have tried to truthfully explain the condition of the car as accurately as I can. If I think of anything else I will add it to the description.
