This 1964 Pontiac Catalina Convertible offers vintage style, proper V8 power, and some terrific classic features. So when a true drop-top cruiser is also quite affordable, the whole package is irresistible.
We love this generation Catalina for its style. The imposing stacked headlight look has added sophistication with the bumpers contouring to cradle them. This same chrome king hugs the front end as it connects with the rocker trim. The full side trim zooms to the back as it connects with the form-hugging rear bumper. And this is an integral part of the taillights that encase the whole rear fender cap. And so when you see how all of this is carefully put together, you know this is the era where the designers had the true final say on what got made. This is a factory red convertible, and the newer white top gives the look the all-American appeal of a Coca-Cola bottle. The paint finish is far from perfect. But the idea is you get a rare and complete drop-top, and the value price allows room in your budget to add your personal touch to it whenever you want. Because after all, a full-size Pontiac convertible from the Wide Track era is always something that's in-demand.
While we like the look of the white roof, with the flip of a switch, it powers down to give you a whole new personality. After all, there's just something extra attractive about a black interior against a red car. The seating has been updated later in life, and that's always preferable in a full-size machine like this. There are some cool classic details, like the vacuum gauge, wood-like dash trim, and AM/FM radio. This was even a factory air conditioning car. It appears to have been upgraded to modern R134a coolant, and it will likely just need the blower serviced to return full function. Front bucket seats, a center console in-between, and that classic/grippy steering wheel all come together to make sure you know this Catalina is a great cruiser.
Under the hood is Pontiac's 389 cubic-inch motor. It's a year-correct black, and fans of the GTO know 1964 is the debut that made this one a legend. While this big V8 doesn't behave like a GTO in the cruiser-style Catalina, it does give it the proper torque and a sweet exhaust note. This convertible has spent over a decade of care with the same owner. And you see the right investments in keeping this a strong runner in places like the newer four-barrel carbonator with one-inch spacer. Out on the road, the power steering, power brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission all help keep this convertible a proper American grand touring machine.
Style, distinct features, and affordability all make this one the one you want. But you're not the only one who sees the value and potential. Call today!!!
