OVERVIEW

1956 Pontiac Catalina

  • DESCRIPTIONStock and original. This car turns heads and starts conversations everywhere I go! Entered in one car show this Spring, it won People's Choice Award, up against trailered-in "show-cars!! While they were all loading their cars back onto their pretty trailers, My trophy and I were driving-thru McDonalds! Anyways, back to the car...She has a 317 V-8, Dual-Range Hydramatic transmission, under-seat heaters, hang-on, original "swamp-cooler" air-conditioning (seen in pic of trunk), all guages work (temp, oil, fuel and volt). Horn works and is activated by button under dash (no holes were drilled, used existing hardware). Wipers have been converted to electric, two-speed type from OEM vacuum-type). Original, working AM "Deluxe" radio. 98,000 original miles. Shifts, runs and rides like new! The only things it "needs" are: there is a 4" slit in the headliner...which is otherwise, like-new. The knobs on dash and window cranks are turning "chalky" with age and starting to deteriorate a bit. Both of these are cheap and easy to fix/replace. They never bothered me at all. Now that Pontiac is no longer being made, the value of these cars is gaining by leaps and bounds! drive only on weekends and/or enter it in an occasional car show. It is the cleanest and most original '56 I've ever seen....by a mile. The lines of this car are some of the best America has ever produced, in my opinion. My name is Paul Wein and the car and I live in Morgan Hill, California (50 miles South of San Francisco). Thanks for looking and have a great day!
