This new-generation '61 Catalina was an instant hit with performance enthusiasts and racers; with its lighter weight and increased power levels, it was a winning combination, especially when fitted with the Super Duty parts available over the counter at Pontiac dealerships. This particular Catalina has a race history, having competed at several dragstrips in the Northeast, including Lebanon Valley Dragway, Connecticut Dragway and U.S. 30 in York, Pennsylvania. Stickers placed on the rear-quarter window when it was still racing have been preserved in the restoration. A total of just 1,352 425A Tri-Power, 4-speed, 3.90-geared Safe-T-Track cars were built in 1961, making this a genuine rarity today. It comes with PHS documentation, including a copy of the original shipping manifest.
