From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

1960 Pontiac Catalina Convertible The Catalina, named after an island off California, was a new name for Pontiac and replaced the prior Chieftan line. The wheelbase was retained from 1958 at 122 inches, but the span between left and right wheels both front and rear (called the track) was increased in all Pontiacs in the USA and heavily promoted as the Wide-Track Pontiacs . The Pontiacs also probably had the most interesting of the 1959 instrument panels in the industry. For 1960, the cars were restyled with exclusively Pontiac outer panels. An all-new front end got rid of the split grille in lieu of a new somewhat pointed and shaped single grille. American Motors Rambler had blown past Pontiac in the sales race because so many customers were moving to more compact cars. In fact, the existence of the mid-priced makes was threatened, and Edsel and DeSoto met their respective demise on either side of the 1960 calendar year. Pontiac soldiered on, comfortably ahead of competitors Dodge, Oldsmobile and Mercury. Middle class folks were buying plenty of cars new in 1959 and 1960, and clearly not everyone was buying compacts. By 1960, a full 77% of Americans owned a car, and 15% actually owned two cars. This 1960 Pontiac Catalina Convertible epitomizes the phrase rare as hens teeth. Where will you find a period Catalina Convertible much less one powered by the iconic Pontiac 389 cu in 3 two-barrel carbureted engine. Painted in light yellow with dual brown vinyl interior and bench front seat, the car is loaded with period goodies. The V8s power is transmitted through a 3-speed automatic transmission. Brakes and steering are power and the Catalina sports dual exhaust. All chrome and bright work are excellent as is paint and interior. The engine bay shows off the 3x2 carbs well. The interior is finished off with a white vinyl boot cover as well as a set of later period American Racing Wheels. You can be the proud owner of an early 60s muscle car that will surely be the only one on the block.
