Is It Too Rusty? 1966 Pontiac Catalina


I’ve been trying to decide if this 1966 Catalina would be worth putting back on the road, or if it’s future life is only as a parts car. Thanks to Troy U. for this find! It’s located in Sussex, New Jersey and is for sale here on eBay. To begin with, it has no title, although there are ways to get one, but that’s an additional expense over and above refurbishment costs. Additionally, there is a lot of rust. Quarter panels, floors and other areas have all been visited by the rust bug, and it’s a very healthy bug! However, there is that neat 389 cubic inch V-8, even if it only has a two-barrel carburetor. And I love those stacked vertical lights in the front. It doesn’t look like it’s had any major crash damage, either. So what do you think–is it worth at least making it run and go, or are this car’s days as a driver finished? Let us know what you think in the comments.

    Too bad. Nice bodystyle. Parts only. Would it really kill the seller to vacuum out the leaves and cobwebs from the interior???

    I love your articles but would really like to see more than one picture, preferably different angles. Thanks for the page.

      If you click the eBay link in the article, there are a dozen photos.
      All Barn Finds would be able to do is to re-post those.
      Which is where they got the one photo from.

    was a nice car back in the day, way too far gone now Title, for the most part is a blanket term ( well , in NY we didn’t have ” titles” till 73) a transferable registration is all that is needed or a bill of sale with the VIN on it

    The 2 dr. Pontiac from California last week was cherry compared to this load of crap. This one just needs to go back to mother earth.
