Roof rack for 67 Catalina Wagon
 
Hi can anyone help me out on this? I have a Catalina Wagon with no luggage rack and finally located one but need some dimensions or photos of how far back or locations of the screw mounting holes.
Thank you

I have a couple of 69 wagons with factory racks, donít know if the rack changed between 65-70.

Are you selling them if so how much? Year donít matter since my car is not original anyways just putting a driver together.
Thanks

Not selling but I could take fastener measurements for you if 69 and 67 roofs are the same?

If you have ever followed North's posts, I suspect he is not selling...
He is a rather advanced collector!

Mentally Diseased Hoarder is a more apt label!

There is a 67 wagon going at Barrett Jackson this week. Don’t know if it has a roof rack but probably worth looking for pics

A month or two ago Smoke Signals had a 67 wagon article. I’ll compare it to mine tomorrow and look up the part numbers too.

Did a bit of research,

First I looked at the recent smoke signals with the red 67 wagon and the roof rack looks the same as my 69’s to the extent that I can see in a grainy photo.

However, the parts book tells a different story. It shows that the accessory part number (complete kit to add a rack ) is different for 69-70 than earlier years. Also the 67-68 roof itself looks the same as the 68-70 but the parts numbers are not the same.

Further I looked at part numbers for individual components and all the major parts had new numbers for 69-70.

That being said, the photos do indicate that the 67-68 and the 69-70 racks are probably interchangeable functionally and visually are similar.

If you do find one I’d be happy to get you some detailed photos with a tape measure to help you locate the rack.

North thank you for taking the time to look into this for me, greatly appreciated. Actually I just came across a 67 rack so I just purchased it. My roof never had a rack so I have to drill the holes and find out the type of fasteners I will need to mount it.
Thanks again

Tomorrow I’ll unscrew one of the screws and take a pic for you

Petegto 01-27-2022 07:42 PM

Thank you so much for doing that. Hopefully I can locate the correct screws and insert fasteners.

I took these pics of the 67 at Barrett Jackson this week- hope it helps.

Assuming that is a factory correct 67 roof rack than it is very different than a 69-70 unit.

1965gp 01-31-2022 11:24 AM

Glad it helped.

Just had a look at the 66 through 69 wagon brochures. 67-68 racks look identical but 66 is different and 69 is also completely different looking
