The 2nd generation Pontiac Catalina was the entry level Pontiac and slotted below the Ventura, Star Chief and Bonneville. It was the cheapest way to get into a full sized GM if you didn’t want a Chevrolet badge on your car and this one is built as a tribute car to a Packer Pontiac race car from the 1960s. Find this 1963 Pontiac Catalina for sale in Waterford, MI currently bidding for $13,100 reserve-not-met with 4 days to go.
The Pontiac Catalina dates from the era when domestic automakers changed the look of each model significantly from year to year. The ’62 Catalina has an old school horizontal headlight arrangement, but the ’63 models received an entirely updated front end, complete with stacked headlamps that make it look a lot like the smaller Tempest/GTO muscle cars.
This Catalina is powered by a 389 cubic inch (6.4 liter) tri-power V8 that was rated at 318 horsepower. This one is shifted via a desirable floor mounted 4-speed gearbox and even with 4000+ lbs to haul around it should still be a fun cruiser.
The seller states that the stickers are vinyl and can be removed quickly and easily if the next owner desires, but we think they complete the look of what would otherwise be a grandpa car. See a cooler full sized classic covered in stickers? firstname.lastname@example.org
