Pontiac Catalina Convertible

Enough time has passed and sufficient changes made to the everyday automobile that to today’s eye this glorious 1959 Pontiac Catalina convertible seems almost impossibly large and imposing – just the way Pontiac lovers like their late-Fifties rides. Comparatively speaking, the Catalina had much more to offer than most of its GM divisional rivals, especially under the hood where a 389 CI V-8 was the biggest engine in its class, in this case with an optional Tri Power carburetion setup for even more power.
