Unbelievable Stunner! Jaw-Dropping 1965 Pontiac Catalina 2+2 with 421/4-Speed

Prepare to have your breath taken away by the sheer beauty of this 1965 Pontiac Catalina 2+2. With its powerful V8 engine, manual transmission, captivating deep red paint job, and convertible top, this classic car is an absolute showstopper. In the golden era of full-size performance vehicles, the Pontiac Catalina ruled the roads, and this perfectly preserved specimen embodies the essence of that era. Thanks to the diligent efforts of T.J., this remarkable Pontiac, located in Los Angeles, California, is now up for grabs on eBay, with the current bid at $18,600 and the reserve yet to be met.

While the 1965 Pontiac GTO may have stolen the spotlight in terms of performance, the Catalina 2+2 held its own in the full-size car category. Born as a Catalina option package in 1964, the 2+2 became its own standalone car in 1965 (take a closer look, and you won’t even find a Catalina badge), before returning to option status in 1967 and eventually being discontinued. The name “2+2” refers to its cozy seating capacity of two in the front and two in the rear.

It’s difficult to determine whether this Pontiac is a survivor or a meticulously restored beauty, as the listing provides limited details. However, judging by the flawless finish, one could lean towards the latter. The paintwork appears immaculate, resembling a modern two-stage application. Not a single chip, scratch, dent, or sign of rust can be found, and the trim and badging look as if they just rolled off the production line. Let’s not forget the pristine white convertible top and those stunning eight-lug wheels, which are showcased brilliantly on this grand convertible.

The listing does have one glaring omission: the lack of an engine image. It’s truly perplexing how such an important feature of this car could be overlooked. However, we can assume it boasts a potent 338-gross horsepower 421 cubic inch V8 engine, possibly with a single four-barrel carburetor, though the optional 3X2 setup is a tantalizing possibility. Unfortunately, no information is provided regarding the car’s drivability or road manners, leaving us craving for more. Nonetheless, the thought of maneuvering the gears in this masterpiece is undoubtedly a gratifying experience.
