1962 Pontiac CatalinaThis 1962 Pontiac Catalina has all the right investments to remind you why Pontiac arguably had the best stable of cruisers. So check out the outstanding full-blue package on this V8 pillarless hardtop classic.
The factory-correct Yorktown Blue sets the tone nicely. It was given a quality respray later in life, and there's even a hint of metallic element that lets the sunshine really show off this well preserved sheetmetal. Pontiac's of this era were out to dominate the road with the Wide Track style that made these a legend. It includes the wraparound chrome bumpers that were integrated so nicely into the design lines; the bright grille that came to a point to showcase the Pontiac's arrowhead; and the extra wide rear fenders flared to draw your attention where the power was meeting the ground. This Catalina truly owned the boulevard back in the day. It still has that presence now, right down to the special distinct 8-lug wheels.
One of the best reasons for having a pillarless hardtop is so people can get a terrific view inside when the windows are down. And this one really show off that appeal. The triple-tone blue on the seats is pure 1960s style, and the condition today looks like it was locked away in a time capsule. And the door panels are even done to match. Plus, the headliner, carpeting, and dash all look great as they coordinate with a package that has all the appeal of a deep blue ocean. The curved windshield and ultra-wide dash give this a feeling of expansive luxury in this full-sized coupe, and so those who love true vintage style will love going for a ride. You really see a well-preserved vintage style everywhere from the AM radio that's on display to the full-size spare in the trunk.
The engine bay stays faithful to this car's classic image, right down to the black air cleaner, factory decals, and turquoise paint on the block. Fans of the soon-to-come GTO know the Pontiac 389 cubic-inch V8, and it's a great powerplant to have here, too. There's a bit more grand touring weight in the Catalina compared to the Goats, but this powerhouse has the right torque to keep it a true confident cruiser. It fires up readily and it ready to hit the road. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and a stout but smooth TH400 three-speed automatic transmission all make you want to take this one out every weekend.
This is the full blue coupe with outstanding all-around appeal. So if you love a true classic, you know you don't want to let this Catalina slip away. Call today!!!
