1965-67 Catalina 2+2. Any experts out there?
I know a fair amount about this car (ie., it had its own model designation in 64-66 and was reduced to a mere option package in '67 (its last year). Engine choices ranged from a 389 to the revered 421 Tri-Power and you could even order one with a Hurst 4-speed.
However, I've never driven one of these and would appreciate any feed back from those who have. How do these car drive out? I imagine they accelerate fairly smartly, but can they stop and find their way through a corner? Were disc brakes available on this car?
Also, after checking with the CPI and VMR value guides, the absolute best 2+2 convertible (with all options) is valued at $18K to $20K. I'm aware of a '66 2+2 convertible that's reportedly been fully restored (I've not seen it). But, the seller wants $39K and won't budge down from that figure. Thus, I politely declined to pursue this car any further. Is there any way this car can be worth $39K?
