1964 Pontiac Catalina : Tri-Power 4-speed Hot Rod

1964 Pontiac Catalina : Tri-Power 4-speed Hot Rod

This 1964 Catalina was lovingly restored by the previous owner to a high standard with many upgrades along the way. It has been driven approximately fifteen-hundred miles since completion.

Finished in Skyline blue with a white vinyl top and Tri-tone blue interior; the colors are very striking and turn heads everywhere it goes. The original 389 big block was given a complete rebuild with added tri-power and other period-correct performance mods,  backed by a muncie 4-speed (Not an original 4-speed car). Power steering, power brakes, windows, seat & antenna. A factory tachometer and rare 4-speed floor shift console with vacuum gauge compliment the performance feel. 8-lug wheels with handsome white wall tires  complete this stunning package.

The long,  straight body of this Catalina coupe is a testament to the restoration quality. The finish is smooth with a brilliant shine. No expense was spared on the paint & body work which was completed over ten years ago and is still showroom quality. Exterior chrome and trim are  in excellent condition as well; The vinyl top is in as-new condition.

On the interior we see more of the same excellent quality restoration combined with many NOS parts used to make everything look just right. The dash bezel, gauges and controls are all working and looking great. Seats,  carpet, headliner and door panels are nearly flawless. All power options are currently working including the power driver seat and all windows.

Under the hood sits the iconic Pontiac big block. The original 389 has been dressed to resemble a factory tri-power car with correct air cleaner and all accessories. Nothing is out of place under the hood and this car runs as good as it looks. The engine starts easily with no smoke and idles very well. The rebuilt Muncie shifts through the gears smoothly with no issues. Brakes and steering were thoroughly rebuilt along with new shocks, springs and bushings as needed during the restoration. Yes, this is a tri-power car that runs great with 8-lugs that stop straight!

The undercarriage shows well with no evidence of rust repairs to the rockers, floor pans etc. The frame and suspension are in excellent shape with light surface rust consistent with a very nice original car.

Here is a Classic Pontiac that truly needs nothing. This car is ready to drive and enjoy for the summer.
