I believe the vin is located in the driver-side door jam, 1961 Pontiac Catalina Production Numbers

4-door sedan 38,638
4-door vista 17,589
2-door sport sedan 9,846
2-door hardtop 14,524
2-door convertible 12,379
4-door 6p station wagon 7,783
4-door 9p station wagon 12,595

Are you wanting to de-code a '61 or ??

The deal is, I found a '61 pontiac catalina in the mountains where my sister in law has a cabin. It's been sitting there since about 1979, judging from the last registration number on the license plate. It's a bubble top, 389/ 4 barrel, auto trans.I got the pix of the option plate on the firewall but could not find the vin code. I'll have to do more research. Of course the person who is suppose to be the owner says he going to restore it, but would love to do it myself.

Hey, thanks for the info.
