Description:

1963 Pontiac Catalina


Up for sale by a private party is this beautiful classic 1963 Pontiac Catalina hardtop. Owner purchased the car in 1986. Car was on the road in 2001 and was completed to its current condition in 2012. The rebuild included installing a 1968 Pontiac GTO drive line with a turbo 400 transmission. Car has been driven only 40,000 miles since the completion and has always been garage kept.

Interior is from a 1963 Grand Prix and in excellent condition. Car is air conditioned; has power brakes (re-lined drums), and power steering. The body is in excellent condition with two-tone paint and hand-painted pin striping and “Eagle Feathers”. The frame has been “C’d” and a new transmission cross member was welded in.

One thing that is very unique to this car are the original eight lug Pontiac wheels. What makes them unusual is that they have been chrome plated. Yes, those are not trim rings, but chrome rims!!!

Car is a pleasure to drive and very reliable. Owner is selling due to personal reasons.

PLEASE BUY WITH CONFIDENCE

I have been an active eBay seller of cars and other items for more than 13 years and maintained a 100% rating during most of that period. Approximately 5 years ago I started an online service assisting owners of Classic, Vintage, and Muscle cars to sell their vehicles without them leaving the garage. These are private individual owners who do not want to deal with the public and all of the endless phone calls, “Tire kickers”, and other nonsense that goes on when trying to sell a car. They just want someone to sell it!!
