Hemmings Find of the Day – 1964 Pontiac Catalina convertible

Published in

From the seller’s description:

1964 Pontiac Catalina 389 Tri-Power convertible. California – Arizona – Florida car. Disassembled body-on-frame rust free restoration. Extensive documentation. Stripped to bare metal, PPG epoxy primed, DuPont G2 Red Fire and Clearcoat. Re-chromed bumpers. All carbs rebuilt. Rebuilt 375/10 Roto Hydramatic. Power steering and brakes. Torsion bar equipped front suspension rebuilt with new springs, bushings, ball joints, and steering components. Stock four link rear with added sway bar. Cooper radials and new spare. New exhaust system and the duals exit at factory original angle. New weather seals for convertible top, doors, windows, and trunk. Have new under-hood insulation pad if you choose to use. New power top motor&pump, hydraulic lines, and lift cylinders. Top new 2009 with a special GLASS rear window, not offered until ’65. The beautiful Grand Prix interior is original with new loop carpeting and floor insulation front to rear. This interior is from my grandfather’s ’64 GP that he bought new as a personal retirement gift to himself (even as a kid I was blown away with pride). He drove it for 21 years. It was his last car and the body and frame rusted out fighting Maine’s salted winter roads. But the interior remained like new. I removed the entire dash and complete interior and stored it all inside my house for 15 years (just ask my wife) while waiting for the time and the car for transplant. Excellent pleated black Morrokide throughout. Beautiful chrome and real wood inserts. Flawless padded dash. Original floor mats. Factory dash tach and console mounted vacuum gauge. Everything works including the “super deluxe” push button radio and rear seat center speaker. The clock is rebuilt to accurate with the original ‘click’ (not a repro quartz movement). I added USA made Auto Meter gauges and an AM/FM/CD in tasteful vinyl covered and matching-sized enclosures.
