The Pontiac 2+2, produced between 1964 and 1967, remains a relatively obscure model in contemporary automotive discourse. Despite being overshadowed by Pontiac’s more iconic offerings like the GTO, Catalina, and Bonneville during its production years, the 2+2 possesses noteworthy attributes deserving of recognition.

As a trim option for the Catalina, the 2+2 distinguished itself with unique features such as specialized door panels and bucket seats, aimed at enhancing its performance and driving experience.

Despite these efforts, the 2+2 struggled to gain traction in the market, with only 27,668 units sold over four model years. Comparatively, the sales figures paled in comparison to Pontiac’s other offerings, highlighting its limited commercial success.

Among the 2+2 variants, the 1967 model stands out as the rarest, with only 1,768 units produced, particularly in its convertible configuration, of which a mere 280 were manufactured.

Despite its rarity, many examples of the 2+2 have fallen into disrepair over the years, with this particular 1967 convertible serving as a poignant example. Despite its dilapidated state, the car retains its originality, housing the numbers-matching V8 engine and a four-speed manual gearbox, contributing to its historical significance within Pontiac’s lineage.

At first glance, this car does not appear to be a 2+2.
