This 66 Pontiac Catalina 2+2, which was the GTO's bigger brother, is such a rare find with its combination of engine and transmission it would be a great addition to any Pontiac enthusiast's collection. The name of 2+2 was added to give it a European connection to start competing with the growing amount of imports into the US, and meant that it sat 2 people in the front and 2 in the rear. Its a car that was never restored but extremely well cared for over 52 years.
This car has been decoded and it is all date coded correctly. Its the WG 421 Block with the correct 4 speed transmission. The tri power set up was added which was Pontiac's signature manifold set up....but wasn't born with the car. Please read on to find out the condition of this rare Pontiac Classic!!
The exterior is in excellent condition. It wears one older lacquer repaint that was done many years ago and still looks beautiful. The luster and depth are still strong and up close or far away it shows very well for its age. Please take note of the photos of the sides of the car and take not of the reflection and how straight they are. Up close you'll see a few lacquer cracks and some scuffs but overall very very presentable. You will not win concourse judging, but may take home a few trophies from the local events. The exterior body's sheet metal is all original and very very straight. All the chrome is in excellent condition and shows great shine as does all the bright work. The glass is all original and also in excellent condition. The vinyl roof was replaced many years ago and presents itself in excellent condition. There are a few blemishes under the rear molding of the vinyl top(see pics). Underneath the car, the floors are all solid and possibly a minor patch or two which was done correctly. Its hard to tell from the undercoating but as I mentioned earlier, it was maintained. The underneath could use a good cleaning and detail. Over all the condition is much better then a driver, it would stand tall at shows, but is not a trailer queen which allows you to drive and enjoy the vehicle. Please look at all the photos and video and let us know of any questions you may have.
The interior is mostly original and in excellent condition. Only the front seats may have been redone, its hard for us to tell along with the carpets. Everything else is original and is in excellent condition. Everything works as well. The private collector that owns this car is a fanatic of making everything work including the radio and gauges. The interior presents so well it will definitely stand tall at any show or local cruise night. Please view all the photos and video including and let us know of any questions you may have.
The engine block code is WG which was the 421 Big Block. The 421 was built as a direct response to Chevy's 409, Ford's 406 and Mopar's 413 and it was such a force to be reckoned with. It was built with a forged steel crank and connecting rods and a four bolt main. In 1966 there were no vin #'s stamped on the block or transmission but from all the codes we pulled, this is the correct dated coded engine and transmission. The tri power was added later on and was the trade mark for Pontiac and designed to come alive when racing. The drive train in this 1966 Pontiac Catalina is in excellent running condition. It was well maintained and cared for through the years. You can literally get in and drive......anywhere.
