…or, even more on Pontiac’s attempts to badge-engineer the El Camino. As mentioned in the other day’s post on the Grand Am-amino, Pontiac built a prototype sedan pickup with Catalina front sheetmetal in 1959. As John Sawruk, relates, Pontiac may have built two, and one was used by the Pontiac Retail Store in Pontiac, Michigan, as a parts chaser. Sawruk said he knows the owner of the one known El Catalina, who has repeatedly said since the 1970s that he plans to put it back together someday.
I’m not holding my breath.
