1969 Pontiac Catalina

The 1969 Pontiac Catalinas had split bumpers, revised rooflines and vent-less windows. The wheelbase was increased one inch and Catalinas were equipped with all the standard GM safety features. They had carpeting, peripheral front bumpers with Endura rubber center inserts, "pulse" windshield wipers with concealed blades, front foam seat cushions, and upper level ventilation systems. You got a choice of a regular-fuel low-compression 2-barrel carburetor V-8 or a 290-hp 400-cid V-8 as standard engines. Station Wagons had wood-grained dashes and new two-way taillights with power rear windows on the nine passenger model. The Ventura trim package was still offered.
