24: 1965 Pontiac Catalina 2+2
Originally marketed as the “big brother” of the GTO, the Catalina rarely gets the recognition it deserves. Instead, most enthusiasts focus on the GTO as the historical point of interest. But there was a lot that the 1965 Pontiac Catalina 2+2 had going for it. From a design standpoint, you got a handsome muscle car that looked a lot like the GTO. Interior space was large enough for a family to enjoy. Coupled with the 338 horsepower, the Catalina 2+2 was able to handle business with ease.
A lot of what the Catalina had going for it came from the signature design of the vehicle. Nevertheless, values on them have ranged from $15,000 up to $77,000 at auction. There’s no doubt the Catalina will be rising in value as the muscle car boom continues to grow.
