Default My NSS 62 Catalina

Ive been building this on and off for the last 5 years. Body came from New Mexico Steve from Pontiac Heaven brought it out this way. I had it media blasted inside and out. It needed minimal rust repair and body work. Engine is a 455 stroker my brother in law built for us. Butler E-heads solid roller its been so long i dont remember whats in it. Maybe i will get it done this year.

My favorite year. My mom had one all thru high school. White with a turquoise interior. 389 2bbl but ran like a scalded dog. Had the other roof style like the Impala had. If I ever build another one it would be a 62 Cat.

Any stripped 62 Cats in the lower eastern 48 states out there?????

Sprayed the Belmar red body color last night. Car looks fantastic. Cant wait to get all the trim back on. Building the car a little backwards reason is we might have to move shop again and i just want to make car as complete as possible.

Default getting along

One of the first things i did to this car was have all the plating done. Finally reinstalling it along with polishing up the aluminum trim and stainless.
