WARNING! DO NOT USE!

Thursday, September 19th, 2019

Because of recent failures, we recommend that you do not use these original 4 blade steel fans. On a recent project, we re-used the original 4 blade fan on a 66 Catalina convertible. We did not notice that the fan had a crack in the center between the mounting holes. The fan flexed under hard acceleration and took out a brand new aluminum radiator. So we replaced the radiator and the fan with a new carbon fiber flex fan. Problem solved. No more will we used these fans. Not sure when it cracked but it did. lk 9/19/2019s-l400

61-62 Stereo System For Sale!

Sunday, June 30th, 2019

I have a NEW killer stereo system I purchased a long time ago for my 1962 Catalina. The car is gone and I just found all of the following packed away. The dash unit is a Custom Sound USA 240 watt with AM-FM, USB and MP3 compatible, RCA outputs, Aux outputs and CD control. Next is a Custom Sound USA 10 CD changer that is matched to the head unit, with remote. Next is the front speaker which is a 4” x 10” Dual Voice Coil, 140 watt peak with dual tweeters and 12 oz. magnet. This is also Custom AutoSound model #3001DVC. Last but not least is Custom AutoSound Model SPUV693C 6’ x 9’ Upgrade Speaker, 200 watts, full chrome basket, 16 oz. magnet, again NEW IN THE BOX. The head unit also fits 1961 Pontiac. Nothing has been used or opened. These head units have not been made by Custom Sound USA for early Pontiacs for a long time. So this means find something close and start hacking your dash up. Not here! This will give your 61 or 62 full size Pontiac the sound and options you need. This system today goes for $700+ but you cannot get the correct head unit to fit your 61 or 62. I would like to get $475 and I will pay the postage to you here in the USA only. World-wide at cost. img_0246img_0242img_02451img_0247

Friday, December 28th, 2018

PontiacParadise.com announces two new badly needed reproduction items coming soon! #1 is 1964 Catalina quarter panel clips with water seals, made from NOS clips in a superior nylon material. These are curved. The clips on eBay are beyond wrong. Door molding clips are right behind these. Those are straight with water seals, again made from NOS clips. #2: 63 to 64 filler neck gasket. This goes at the top of your filler neck and keeps it from rattling up by your gas cap. These are always hard and crunchy. Again, made from a superior rubber, all items are made in the USA! Pricing to follow. Happy New Year to all! 20181220_183440-64-clips-rear120181228_211811-63-64-filler-neck-gasket
