Well, here is a very bold, outstanding classic car that you won’t see cruisin’ the boulevard too often, but you should, as these big Pontiac convertibles epitomize cruising! Pontiac Catalinas such as this one can only be compared only with the likes of the classic Cadillacs, Electras, and Caprices, and such.

The comfort you will enjoy cruising’ this Catalina around is truly unparalleled as they just don’t build comfort like this into cars  anymore.

Sure, it’s a big, bold, and beautiful example of early ’70’s Americana the likes of which we will never see again, and lets face it…Where are you gonna come across a classic car that you can take the whole family, all of your friends, and their families, all at the same time, and have room for all of their luggage too! I don’t know.

This particular Catalina convertible was originally equipped with the very capable 400 engine, but now has an even more capable and appropriate 455 with the ever-so-cool, excellent running Tri-Power  set up that’s always a hit at the car shows and cruise-ins when you pop open the hood.

Strong engine and drive train means you can cruise this Pontiac any time, any where in comfort, style, and luxury like no other.

Hit the switch on the dash to lower the top, plug in your favorite tunes on your flash drive, and leave your troubles far behind.

Excellent running and driving convertible with the right engine. Arm out the window interior, everything working properly, floating down the road like a cruise ship on calm waters…Big, bold Catalina…Hmmm, I wonder if this car is what the island is named after!  Fun Car!
