1959 Pontiac Catalina CatalinaI want to start off by asking you to please call forhonest answers BEFORE you bid. Or better yet, come by and look at the vehicle or have someone inspect it for you. I do the best I can describing my vehicles and I include very good pictures that can be expanded. I do this to try and avoid any misunderstandings. It is impossible to list every little item on a vehicle that may or may not beimportant to a buyer. Thanks.
Also, please read thepayment section carefully. Iwill not vary off of what isexplained there. Cashiers checks may have hold put on them by my bank. My bank will give me a letter of how long the hold will be. I will forward a copy of the letter to you. The length of hold depends on the bank that it is sent from. Some smaller banks cantake up to 10 business days. The car will not leave here until my banksays the check has cleared. No exceptions. That is why I like wire transfers and cash.
This is a super nice bubble top Catalina and a true survivor. Other than one repaint years ago and an upgraded brake dual master cylinder, it is completely original. I have never seen another 59 Catalina 2 door hardtop in person, so they must be very hard to come by. It is an always rust free solid car from Oklahoma and I have thepaperwork to prove it. It came from the factory with factory A/C, radio delete, Power steering / brakes, and that is about it. It has 104647 original miles.
Body: Very solid and absolutely rust free. Floor and trunk pans are perfect. One repaint that still looks very good. All of the chrome and stainless trim is in excellentcondition. No pitting at all. 1 or 2 very slight dings in trim. Front bumper has a small scuff mark down low on right corner and a small dent in the center behind where the front license plate will hide it. ( see pics ) Both door glass have cracks. The rest of the glass is good. Windows roll up and down as they should. Weatherstripping is still very nice and pliable. Doors close great.
Driveline: All original and numbers matching. Carb rebuilt. New exhaust. Complete new brake system. New water pump. Engine starts right upand sounds great. Transmission shifts great. The power steering pump isstarting to make a little noise but works fine. Startersolenoid will need to be replaced at some time. It works most of the time, but it does slip every once in a while.
Interior: All original and very nice with the exception of the drivers seat back. The previous sat down hard one time and caught the material on his coat ripping it. ( see pics ) Iordered enough brand new exact reproduction cloth material to completely recover the fabric on both front and back seats that will come with the car. All of the vinyl material is fine and can be reused per an interior guy that I had look at it. It just needs a good cleaning. All gauges work including the speedometer. The A/C compressor engages and dis-engages like it should, but there is a problem with the blower fan switch. I traced theproblem to a little metal switch that is connected to the A/C controls. Every time the wire connector is plugged in, and then the hand control is activated, it blows the fuse. The switch does sendpower to the blower motor, and the blower motor does work, but that little switch will need to be replaced. I have not been able to find one new, so it will be a junk yard trip or maybe an eBay item.
Misc.: The wiring is all original and in very good shape. Non of that years of various owners having their own ideas about how to add electrical items. I have the original wheels, hub caps, and power brake booster in the trunk.
I have a clear Missouri title and it is in my name.
I will not give out my reserve price. Please do not ask.
NO TRADES, PLEASE DO ASK ASK.
You can make a reasonable offer if you wish, but I will not end the listing once the auction hits thereasonable reserve price.
Now for the business end. I encourage you, or someone you trust or hire, to come by and check out the vehicle in person. I will refund your deposit if the vehicle does not match the abovedescription. The vehicle does not leave here until all funds clear my bank. Bank and cashiers checks can take up to 10 business days. My bank will give me a letter stating the date when the check will clear. I will forward a copy of the letter to you. Bank transfers can take up to 2 days depending on what time of the day it is initiated on your end. Again, my bank will let me know when it clears. Cash is great if picking it up in person.
