The Pontiac Catalina was part of Pontiac's full-sized line from 1950 to 1981. Initially, the name was used strictly to denote hardtop body styles, first appearing in the 1950 Chieftain Eight and DeLuxe Eight lines. The 1965 full-sized Pontiacs were completely restyled with more flowing sheetmetal featuring "Coke-bottle" profiles and fastback rooflines on two-door hardtops. Wheelbases increased to 121 inches (3,100 mm) on all models. The 2+2 option changed from a trim package to an all-out performance car package for 1965 similar to Pontiac's intermediate-sized GTO. The base engine with the 2+2 was now the 338-horsepower 421 four-barrel with the 353 horsepower (263 kW) Tri-Power or 376-horsepower 421 HO with Tri-Power available as options.
Our prime example gives a nod to the Catalina Grand Prix, 2 + 2, performance model edition featuring a stunning center console between the front bucket seats and Grand Prix logos and 2 + 2 graphics inside and out. Besides this very cool upgrade by the current owner, what you are looking at, otherwise, is an outstanding original paint, two owner, (65,242), Pontiac Catalina with striking matching red interior and a black convertible top. Top down and your seeing all red! A tremendous find! Powered by a number's matching 389 cubic inch, V-8 engine backed by a three-speed automatic transmission, this beautiful, red dream machine is impossible to be ignored! Bottom line, if you don't want to be bothered by people wanting to talk to you about your car, don't buy this one!
