Pontiac : Catalina 2-dr sedan
Up for bid is a 1967 Pontiac Catalina, 2-dr sedan with the rare center post. Only 5633 of this style were produced with the lowest production model of all the full size vehicles for that year. This car started life out originally as a 400 2V carb, 290HP, code YC with single exhaust. The same matching #'s motor was upgraded with an Edelbrock 625 CFM carb but still using a factory 400 4V cast iron manifold. Other upgrades include dual-exhaust, 3.23 limited slip rear-end, Turbo 400 trans, original type A/C unit which blows very cold, a complete gauge package dash out of a 67 Ventura 2+2. NOTE: The temp gauge does not work, but an after market type was installed along with a small tac. Front disc brakes were added as was a power antenna and lowering springs. Vehicle also has a drivers side remote mirror.
Tires are 215/60/R15 and about 2 years old with less than 500 miles, along with the Chevy type rally wheels and center caps. Car was recently painted the original color of Montreaux Blue with 2-stage base coat, clear coat and buffed out. A new reproduction rear package tray was also installed, along with new NOS headlight bezels. Other mechanical upgrades include a new 3-core aluminum radiator, front rotors turned with new pads, new fuel sending unit and factory type mufflers with turn-downs. The original glass is in nice shape with no cracks or chips, original interior of headliner, sunvisors, door panels are still in decent shape after 46+ years. The seats and original carpeting are beginning to show their age, but not bad for everyday use, or occasional cruises. Drivers side windlace is also beginning to show its age. Passenger side is fine. The original steering wheel will need a full re-cast. I have a brand new in the box steering wheel cover, the lace type from way back. Body wise, there are still some small dings here and there, but overall the body is in good solid shape with very little surface rust and no rot. Solid floors, frame and trunk with little pitting.
There is a small oil leak coming from either the front of the oil pan or the timing chain cover. No leaks or unusual sounds from the trans or rear-end. Rear bumper could use a re-chrome and still has some shine. Front bumper shows well but is starting to show signs of peeling. The stainless steel trim is in nice shape with small dings here and there.
The car runs excellent, stops well and shifts fine. Motor was recently steam-cleaned and detailed as you can see. Previous owner said the car has about 100-105K but cannot really be confirmed. There are numerous notes of what type of maintenance or repairs were made to the car over the years. The car is a pleasure to drive and very comfortable. Vehicle has a clear title in my name with current registration and no back fees.
The following are the original parts that came with the car. Original instrument panel with dash pad, valve covers, radiator (still worked well when upgraded to 3-core), 2V manifold, Rochester carb and air-cleaner. Original 14" steel wheels with dog-dish caps, fender skirts in very nice shape and original owners manual.
These are extra parts the previous owner acquired over the years. Radiator support shield, bell housing cover, new power brake booster, (4) stainless steel trim rings, set of M/T valve covers, (1) rear bumper with excellent chrome with some dents, a complete stainless steel center post window trim (very hard to find), a brand new engine gasket kit, (4) extra headlight bezels, door weather stripping, glove-box insert, (2) new tailight lenses, (1) tailight housing, (2) complete tailight housing units with lenses, some new front-end parts, drive-shaft and a new set of outside door handles.
