1964 Pontiac Catalina Convertible

VIN: 834P284396

Check out this beautiful, Multiple National Award Winning, 1964 Pontiac Catalina Convertible! We aquired this Pontiac from the original owner. He factory ordered it on June 6, 1964. It was built on July 14, 1964 and delivered to him on July 21, 1964. We have all of the original documents, including the "Guardian Maintenance" Booklet with the "Protect-O-Plate", the original Build Sheet, original Owners Manual, original Top Manual, etc.

In 1985, the car was stripped to bare metal and refinished in its original factory color (code "P" - Aquamarine). The vehicle is still mostly original. Besides the paint, the only things that were replaced are the white convertible top, the carpet and the weatherstripping.

The interior, including the padded dash, instruments, Lucite steering wheel and all of the upholstery (seats, doors, interior 1/4 panels, kick panels, sun visors) along with all of the hardware is still original and in show condition. During the convertible top replacement, the interior top liner was carefully removed (Standard on the Catalina. A woven, dark grayish material no longer produced or available - then or now), dry cleaned, and sewn onto the new top. The top well is the same material and was given the same restoration treatment.

Mechanically, except for normal wear parts, again, all original. The cylinder heads have never been off the 389 cubic inch, 267 h.p. engine and the 'Slim Jim" Hydramatic transmission is smooth as silk. The H.D. Handling Package that was ordered on the car ($2.65 extra!) is still there - no leaks in any of the original spiral Delco shocks and a sucking sound can still be heard when pushing down on the car. There is absolutely no sagging of the H.D. springs. All original pieces, where necessary, have been totally restored to absolute mint concourse level, and in all respects, the car is "as new". The vehicle only has 38,010 miles. These are the actual miles from day one.
