1957 Pontiac Star Chief

1957 Pontiac Star Chief Four-Door Custom Catalina goes to winter garage, autumn 2011. In the middle of video can see same year , 1957, produced Mercedes-Benz 300 "Adenauer"- Pontiac seems nicer and more modern in my opinion.

SOLD 1957 Pontiac Star Chief Catalina 2 Door Hard Top SOLD
TThis is one of my favorite cars. They may look the same size as a 57 Chev but they are longer and more luxurious. 347 V-8 engine. AT trans. Power steering. Power brakes. Red and white paint. Good looking red and white interior. This was a green car in the beginning. We just rebuilt the brakes. We replaced the 2 rear drums and installed new wheel cylinders and brake shoes. Serviced and safety checked. Installed a new 12 volt wiper motor. Rebuilt both heater cores and had the temp control rebuilt. Restored the steering wheel. This car has eyeball. The paint is fair. Actually if few spots were touched up it would not need to be repainted for a time. Engine runs great and it drives well. The trans is slow to start and one of my customers that I have sold 2 57s he said both of his cars work the same way. Tires are almost new. # 3 - cond.





132642 / 1957 Pontiac Bonneville
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6oheg7a Named in honor of the salt flats where speed records have been set for decades, this fuel injected 1957 Pontiac is one of the rarest and most desirable 50s collector cars ever produced. Fresh out of a complete frame off restoration in which not a penny was spared, this Pontiac is decidedly one of the most impressive cars I've ever seen. The smooth Harley Earl designed body panels are completely free of any waves or blemishes and the cars straight and narrow panel gaps are likely much better than what came from the factory 54 years ago. On top of the clean body, familiar Kenya Ivory paint, worn by all 1957 Bonnevilles, displays an excellent shine. And on the sides of the car, Bonneville Red 'splashes' complete a look that was shared by most of the 630 cars produced. Under the hood of this '57 Bonneville you'll find an original 347 cubic inch fuel injected V8 with a 10.25 to 1 compression ratio and, according to Pontiac, 'over 300 horsepower'. On top of the motor, an original Rochester fuel injection system receives cool air from a correct black "Pontiac" decaled air cleaner that is piped to the front of the car and covered in steel mesh. In front of the air cleaner, a correctly tagged Delco generator is spun by a new V-belt, and behind the fuel injection system a correct points distributor sends spark through correct black plug wires. On the left side of the motor, factory correct standard power steering sits behind a correct black radiator which sends and receives water through correct hoses with correct clamps. Hanging from the cars correctly marked Ivory fire wall is a correct glass Cadillac decaled reservoir that holds windshield washer fluid and a correct heater blower that pipes warm air to the interior through vents in the cars kick panels. Behind this Pontiac's fuel injected 347 V8 is an original Strato Flight Hydra-Matic 4-speed automatic transmission that sends power to a correctly rebuilt rear end. Braking is handled by standard equipment power drum brakes that bring the car to a stop in a surprisingly short distance, and turning is aided by standard equipment power steering that both improves handling and makes slow speed navigation a lot more manageable in this long and heavy car. Above the suspension, the cars floor pans are exceptionally solid and display a fresh coat of red undercoating, and all of the small details such as new stainless fuel lines new brake hoses, a new stainless fuel tank and a factory correct replacement Exhaust system have been installed to a very high standard. Putting the power to the pavement is four Bonneville Red 14 inch factory steel wheels that feature stainless tri-blade wheel covers and 8.50-14 wide white wall tires. Loaded with every option in the book except air conditioning, this Bonneville's interior features a perfect mix of outrageous style and typical American luxury. The front eight-way power seat is covered in Tartan Red and Ivory leather and features chrome adjustment buttons, new lap belts and a complimentary color design to the pristine rear leather seat. In front of the power seat, a Bonneville Red dash is capped by a great looking Tartan Red pad and finished by mirror-like stainless lower panels that house chrome knobs for the cars accessories. In front of the driver, a bright stainless instrument bezel houses a horizontal speedometer over round chrome trimmed gauges for the cars vitals, controls for the cars heater, a standard Wonderbar AM radio and a standard continuous motion clock. Below the dash, like-new red carpet sits below chrome trimmed pedals that feature awesome "Brake" and "Power" lettering and features no wear and tear at all. In front of the driver, a standard equipment deluxe steering wheel features a chrome horn ring inside a marbled Ivory rim, and sits in front of a chrome column mounted gear selector, a chrome gear indicator and a chrome turn signal stalk. At the center of the steering wheel, stylized "Pontiac" script sits on a mesh-look backing below a "Power Steering" emblem that incorporates a traditional gold Pontiac indian head insignia. This investment grade 1957 Bonneville is one of the finest Pontiacs left on the planet.

PONTIAC - "The Super Duty Story" Part 1 of 3
Pontiac had an SD engine program in the late 50s early 60s, and later/briefly again in 1973/74 with the SD455. This video is regarding the FIRST Super Duty program.---In only a few years time during the late 50s early 60s, Pontiac MORE THAN DOUBLED their V8's horsepower output (described in this video), while using/keeping the same V8 engine block they used thru 1955-81. Even though the same block was kept, from 1955-62 the cubic inch displacement grew much larger than the initial 287 cuber it started as in 1955. It grew to a 317 347 370 389 and finally a 421 cuber in 1962. It eventually maxed out at 455 cubes in 1970. By 1970 ALL the other GM divisions were producing engines at 454 or 455 cubes (500 for Cadillac). PONTIAC WAS THE ONLY DIVISION still using the same block they used in the 1950s on engines that had a much smaller displacement -- 287 cubes. The 1955 287 displacement would remain the smallest displacement ever used in the Pontiac V8 block all the way until 1980/81 when a 265V8 was produced. Since less durability was required for the smaller displacement, the block was decked/butchered/lightened on the 265/301v8s of 1980/81. Prior to 1980 the block had never been decked/butchered/lightened. The 1980/81 265/301v8 blocks were about 200 pounds lighter than the 1955-79 blocks, and only 25 pounds heavier than a Buick 231V6.

PONTIAC - The Glory Years! Part 2 of 5
(1956-93). Some great basic Pontiac history, along with the CARS and PEOPLE (Bunkie Knudsen, John Delorean, Jim Wangers, Pete Estes, etc) who made Pontiac great in those years. In 1956 Bunkie Knudsen was hired as Pontiac's General Manager. He was told by GM "Turn Pontiac around in 5 years or the division is gone". Within about a year he quickly assembled a great team. Knudsen was fortunate enough to pick up engineer John Delorean from Packard when that company closed, Delorean later became the father of the GTO and MANY Pontiac Innovations. Knudsen was also fortunate enough to lure a brilliant "Olds Rocket V8" engineer away from Oldsmobile---Pete Estes who helped the Pontiac V8 breath as well as it could.
