1950 Pontiac Catalina 2 door hard top coupe

First year for the Pontiac Hard Top

This car has a very strong running straight 8. It drives very well for a car of its age.

No issues of start up, overheating or stalling.

No excessive oil use or leaks

The brake petal is a little soft. The rear brake cylinders have been replaced with new ones and bled within the last 50 miles. I bought new front brake cylinders, but have not had time to install them. The two front cylinders are included with the car. I would think the brakes would work 100% after installing front cylinders and re-bleeding the system.

Car is currently running off a boat gas tank behind driver side seat. The fuel tank in the car has not been tested for rust or corrosion. When they are that old, I don't trust their condition and don't use them until they are checked out. The original tank is mounted in stock location and is disconnected from the fuel pump.

I spent a small fortune on a rebuilt carburetor and did not chance getting dirt or rust from an old tank in it.

Within the past 200 miles, parts replaced: new water pump, thermostat, carburetor, oil change, battery, front motor mount

Needs exhaust repair and minor brake work

The interior is in poor condition, but is at least there and restorable.

The body has rust out issues as seen in pictures. By the way, 24 pictures is not nearly enough to show true condition ! I have many more photo's including close ups of rotted area's.

I have six patch panels for the car which are included in the auction. (pictured)

The floors are fairly solid other than a few holes near each rocker

The trunk is solid other than at the two rear corners

Inner rockers are bad !

Lower front fenders have small holes

Patch panels included are : both outer rockers and 4 pieces of rear quarter patch

The bumpers I have pictured are included.

I do not have all the stainless trim. Also, NO hood ornament.

The car is a running , driving project or you can just drive it with few repairs. The choice is yours. At least you do not have to push it around. If the car was show and I didn't already have 14 other projects, I wouldn't even offer it. I just do not have time and money to finish all of them. Please view my other listings for other project car offers. I am going to list 26 Model T, 31 Model A slant window, 47 New Yorker and a few others

Please ask questions and make comments before bidding or making BIN offers. Call me @ 1-314-757-3489 text or email.

I will provide you with all answers for questions asked and all extra photo's asked for. I have nothing to hide and absolutely want you to be 100% happy with your purchase !

This car comes with a clear Missouri Title and as-is bill of sale. Title will be transferred to winning bidder upon cleared payment. Because it runs and drives, I must have you sign and date title. It will be up to you to fill in street address and price.

If there is a winning bidder, I ask that you make a PayPal deposit of $200.00 within 24 hours of auction end. Balance to be paid within 7 days of auction end. As long as the car is paid for, I do not mind working with you on storage .

Cost of shipping/delivery is of the winning bidder/buyer expense. I am able to offer delivery of up to 300 miles at an extra cost. Please calculate shipping expense before bidding/buying. I am located 20 miles Southwest of St. Louis Missouri. Area code 63026

I will help with the loading on you or your shippers trailer for free. Drive it on , guide you on etc.

I will revise listing as I think of important things to add.

I welcome and encourage anyone interested in this car to come and see it in person and hear it run before bidding/buying. Just let me know.

Bid with confidence. I will not list this vehicle on another site during this auction. I do reserve the right to end auction early due to BIN offer.

I generally do not mind selling parts off a car, but this is NOT one I am willing to part out. Please do not ask me to sell you just a part. In return , I will not ask you to sell parts off your car to fix this one. If I can help with locating parts to finish this one, I will gladly help !

I am also available for answers after the sale. Example : I can give you a quote on panel replacement and body work. I do not do interiors (upholstery)
