I found and bought a 1959 Pontiac Catalina stored in heated warehouse for the last 35 years, I washed and had it buffed and cleaned the interior (wiped down) still has plastic seat covers like sears installed back then. All sales info bill of sale, warranty book and paper sleeve it came in, manual and a couple boxes of glass fuses in the glove box. As far as I can tell this car is 100% original. I pulled the back seat and found the build sheet still there! So that is why I am posting this, I need help with the decode of build sheet. Any help would be great.

Awesome, some smart Pontiac guys on here that know how to decode the options which I cannot. Might take a day or two for some to see the post. I can tell you where it was built and colors, thats about it.
Congrats though on the find, once you drive it you very well may be hooked!

here is the easiest way to post pictures. We have a site on http://photobucket.com/
Log in as : Pontiac-59
password: widetrack

You will see many of our members with albums, you'll make your own album. Upload your pictures to your photobucket album.
To post on this site:
Click the picture you want to post from your album page. With the single picture showing, on the right side you will see a box "Image Links", below you will see "IMG code", left click on the code and it will say "copied".
Now come back to this site. When you decide to "Post a Reply" In the line of symbols above, click on the box that looks like a TV(in the middle) and it will say "image", paste the copied img code. It won't show up until you click on the "preview" tab at the bottom and bingo, your picture shows up. If everything looks good, click "send" and your picture is now in your post

What a beauty! What are your plans for her? More details, history please.
Part of me would love to see California Highway Patrol on the side door with a huge cherry on top!

dupageauto, welcome to the site. You sure found a beauty! Your car looks like the day it left the factory. For the codes, go to the forum "1959 Pontiac Restorations" then "1959 Pontiac MSRP window sticker" the code sheet I have is on page 2. Glad you were able to post the picture. There is a great amount of excellent knowledge on this site concerning our cars. Thanks , Jim

Starchief,

Photobucket is kind of a hassle but I am terribly challenged in this area. I would sure share a lot more photos if it was easier. JMO.
