DESCRIPTIONThis is a true numbers matching, PHS documented, 421 / 4-speed Catalina convertible. It has 8-lug wheels, ride & handling package, factory tach & rally gauge packages.

This Catalina is undergoing a complete frame-off restoration here at Automotion. The body has been blasted to remove paint & undercoating top & bottom while on the rotisserie. Body work has been completed and the dash, door jambs and firewall have been painted in preparation for final assembly and the top coat of Fontaine Blue paint. The original bumpers have been re-chromed along with the tail panel and all lesser chrome parts. Correct re-production door panels & upholstery are ready for installation All correct materials and patterns are used to recreate the factory interior perfectly. The body has been mated to the completed rolling chassis after carefully painting the floor pan and installing brake & fuel lines. New body mounts & re-plated original hardware was used. The three two-barrel carburetors are installed along with the radiator support and all engine bolt-ons. A correct reproduction exhaust system was sourced and this big Pontiac will be running and driving early in 2015. Check back often for pictures and updates!
