1966 Pontiac CatalinaHi, amlisting my '66 Catalina convertible for someone that wants to enjoy a old classic. The car is currently being driven as a daily driver. It needs a restoration or at lease some rust and interior work redone.
The good: The car is complete, ll the parts are there. The 389 engine sounds great and does not smoke. It holds good oil pressure and runs like a top. The car drives straight, s smooth, nd the transmission and rear are working fine. Everything works in the car including the radio. ( it will need a new speaker). The floor pans, ockers, nd trunk drop off panels are in pretty good shape with little or no rust.
The bad: The interior has some tears at the seams. The top mechanism goes up and down OK but the top needs replaced as it is the original (it is good enough to pattern from for a replacement top). There are oil leaks and all seals will need to be replaced. The fuel tank has a leak when filled over 1/2 tank. There is rust in the quarters and the lower fenders. The trunk floor has some flaking rust but I believe it is repairable and doesn't have to be replaced. Someone tried to pry the trunk lid open at one time and I took a pic of the damage from the pry tool they used. It has been repainted once in its lifetime and that paint job wasn't very good. I could tell the driver door had some body filler from what I assume was a accident so I bought a nice rust free door shell from a company in California.
The history of this car is that I found it in a city in central Nebraska and it had been stored in a garage for over 30 years. It needed the fuel tank cleaned, ires, rakes, fuel pump, nd carburetor rebuild. All that has been done and it has been driven daily since then. I started gathering parts for a resto/repair but I don't think I am going to have the time to do the repairs. That's why I am selling this car. The rust on the driver side along with what I thought was a previous accident made me purchase a reproduction quarter panel skin for it and I will include it with the car upon sale.
