RealRides of WNY #2364 - 1966 Catalina

The 1966 Pontiac Catalina was a somewhat minor restyle of the 1965 cars (when the entire Pontiac Motor Division had been named “Car of the Year” by Motor Trend magazine). The Catalina was Pontiac’s entry-level full size nameplate, and its lineup consisted of: two- and four-door sedans and hardtops, this convertible, and six- and nine-passenger station wagons. Other nameplates were the Bonneville (along with the Bonneville Brougham which was an optional trim package), Grand Prix, 2+2, and the Star Chief Executive. For 1967 “Star Chief” would be dropped from the Executive name, and a new Ventura model would be slotted between the Executive and the Catalina. We saw today’s RealRide at this summer’s Annual Harbor Cruise in Dunkirk.
