The Catalina featured the same standard eqiuipment as the year before, and also came equipped with full wheel discs and rocker molding options.

1964 Pontiac Catalina

In 1964, Catalinas got a refreshment. They were about an inch longer even though they looked shorter. They had side moldings running from the rear of the front wheel opening to the rear, "Catalina" front fender scripts, and series medallions on the rear fenders. They still had the same standard equipment as the year before but many came with full wheel discs and rocker molding options. The Catalina 2+2 option package was available (2347, 2367) and the Ventura trim package was an interior decor group (2339, 2347, 2367).
