Classic Car Overview
For 1959, Pontiac dropped the name "Chieftain" and "Super Chief" models for its entry-level model and renamed it "Catalina", while demoting the former top-line Star Chief to mid-line status eliminating the two-door StarChief Catalina, the only hardtop for the StarChief was the four-door hardtop and expanding the Bonneville nameplate to a full flagship series that included sedans, coupes, convertibles, and Safari station wagons. In the lower-priced Catalina line, Pontiac division advertising placed a higher emphasis on the top trimmed two- and four-door hardtops, convertible, and Safari station wagons instead of the pillared two- and four-door sedan variants despite the fact that the four-door sedan was the best seller in this line. The Catalina, though it was the lowest-priced full-sized Pontiac, was priced and trimmed below the Chevrolet Impala due to GMs overlapping price structure formula only a step below the Buick LeSabre and Oldsmobile 88 in trim and appointments but priced about $100 to $200 less. Catalinas also came standard with more amenities than Chevrolet models and included a larger and more powerful V8 engine of 389 cubic inches, compared to Chevys six-cylinder or 283 and 348 cubic-inch V8s. Pontiacs also benefited from a much better automatic transmission than their Chevrolet counterparts - the four-speed Hydra-Matic - versus Chevys two-speed Powerglide.
