Vehicle Description

1951 Pontiac Catalina Deluxe 2 door Hardtop Resto-Mod, 400 Cu. In. Pontiac V8 engine with Turbo 400 Transmission
My late husband purchased his 1951 Pontiac Catalina Deluxe 2 door hardtop as a shell in 2007. It had no drivetrain or interior. He had a 400 cubic inch Pontiac and a GM Turbo 400 transmission installed. The carburetor has a manual choke. The outside of the car is completely stock with all the extra chrome and stainless trim that is included in the Catalina Deluxe model.
It has a custom dual exhaust with turbo mufflers that produce a deep rumble.
The front brakes have been converted to discs. The brake master cylinder is stock and was just rebuilt.
The entire front end has been rebuilt, and the engine timing chain has been replaced as have all the exterior engine gaskets.
The entire interior and headliner is custom with front bucket seats and a center console done in black tuck and role. The entire trunk area is also treated to the same black tuck and role upholstery. The driver’s seat has a small tear where the seat back comes together with the seat closest to the door. It is not in the seat or seat back area.
It has a white and cream yellow paint job that has been cut and buffed. There are a few chips and some minor surface rust under several emblems. There are several original chrome pieces, like the Indian head on the hood and the rear tail light bezels that are pitted as they are original.
The front and rear bumpers have been re-chromed and all the stainless trim has been polished;
A hood release lever is installed under the dash to ensure there is no snooping in the engine compartment. The hood springs have weakened over time and a hood support is necessary to keep the hood fully open.
Wheels are American Racing Aluminum 15 x 7.
The car is missing the exterior window sill trim. There are many extra trim pieces such as rear wheel skirts and the original hubcaps and the hood center trim piece.
The vehicle does not have power steering, power brakes or AC.
The speedometer and odometer do not work as two successive oil changes show the same mileage.
