1953 Pontiac Catalina
I will be listing a few cars here in the next week or two for my family. We are reducing are number of cars, so
please see my other listings as well. I am not a dealer.
Just a beautiful original car that has been well cared for by the previous owners. Only 56, 787 miles and has been
restored as needed for driving and car shows. We had plans to drive and show this car on a regular basis, but
sometimes life has other plans, and we have decided to sell it to someone who we hope will give it a good home. I
believe this will be both a fun car and a great investment for the next owner! I am a big fan of this body style
and this particular car. I hope to see it go to a good Pontiac home!
This particular model of Pontiac was only available in Laurel Green, Milano Ivory, or a two-tone combination of
these colors. The term "Catalina" was Pontiac's nomenclature for pillar-less hardtop styling.

The engine idles well, runs quiet, makes good power, and starts well every time. The transmission shifts very
smoothly through all the gears. Steers and stops very easy with the factory power steering and brakes. Drives
straight down the road with no unusual vibrations, pulling, noises, etc. All of the original gauges work. The
radio and horn work too (clock is correct twice daily). The car is an absolute pleasure to own and drive.
Probably drives as close to a 'new' one as you would hope to find!
This Pontiac is a beautiful car everywhere you look (exterior, interior, engine compartment, trunk, etc). Nice
body and under-carriage. Doors open and shut very well. The upholstery is in good condition. This Pontiac would
look great at all your shows and cruise-ins. It has won many awards in the past and should win you more down the
road. It is a combination of older restoration and original. You would be hard pressed to find another one like
this (especially with the PS and PB). Please see the photos and ask what questions you have.
