63 convertible

Recommended Posts

Just joining in. I have a '63 Catalina convertible on a transport, should be here Thursday or Friday. I will be picking brains as I have never owned a Pontiac. I have built many Chevy's and even the occasional Ford (but most were Chevy powered). The indian is a survivor, 42,000 original miles been garaged its entire life, how many of you have seen an acrylic steering wheel without a crack in it lately?. It will be my daily driver, probably the last personal car I will ever own. As I live in So Cal A/C is not an option and apparently to install a factory air will require replacing a section of the firewall which is not going to happen on this car so will need to explore other options but that is another thread. I very much look forward to "chatting" with all of you over the course of the build.

I also looked at the wonderful photos online.  Your Catalina's colour reminds me of my late father's 62 Catalina 4 door hardtop.  Also liked Ringo's photo posted of your convertible.
