22: Pontiac Catalina 421 Super Duty
The Catalina is known for multiple reasons, but one is for it being the original Pontiac performance sedan. Nevertheless, the Catalina has been overshadowed in the last few decades by an onslaught of popular muscle car choices. The 421 Super Duty was produced in very slim margins and it had a good concept, build a powerful performance car for a cheap price. But the 421 was marred by reliability issues and questionable build quality.
The 421 V8 engine with two four-barrel carburetors produced 405 HP, which on paper looks great. However, keeping the Catalina on the road is another thing, and its carburetors are notoriously hard to maintain. The interior was also a lot less to look at than previous Pontiac sedans which are why the 421 wasn’t very popular. Still, this is a big, V8-powered Pontiac and it can drive well if you get one that has been maintained.
