Owner's Comments

Here is an update for my car. October 2004

This past winter I took out the Hydromatic Transmission and replaced it with a Turbo 400. In doing so, I had to machine a face plate between the block and tranny so I could install the starter. The old Hydro held the starter while the Turbo relies on the block to do so. My 389 doesn't have the bolt holes, so I had to come up my own solution. As well, I replaced the Rochester 2 barrel with a Carter AFB. The cruise now is amazing.

My name is Brice Sokolowski. This is my 1963 Pontiac Catalina. It was originally purchased at R.O. Evans - Pontiac, Garland, TX. I live in Plano, TX. The car has been owned and garaged by 3 owners within 15 miles of Garland since purchased new. I am the 4th owner. Car is all originally except for the new exhaust system with Flowmaster and the tach inside. Original paint job that I restored by using a polishing compound. Before I owned the car, it was covered in rust spots and leaf stains. The power plant is a Pontiac "small block" 389 cubic inch engine: the basic Pontiac V8 from 1955 to 1970. 2 barrel Rochester carburetor: 283 horsepower @ 4,400RPM; 418 f-p of of torque @ 2,800 RPM. The transmission is a Hydra-matic 3 speed Original Super Deluxe AM radio. American classic "drive-in movie" 4-door sedan. 4,100 pounds of Pontiac EXCITEMENT! The license plate respectively reads: "63 CAT"

UPDATED! I just wanted to send you a couple new pictures of my car. More are to come of the engine because I am working on it. I think your site is really great, and thank you for posting my Pontiac.
