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.

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.

1959 Pontiac Star Chief

1958 Pontiac Star Chief Super Deluxe Series 58-28 Catalina Hardtop Sedan - SOLD!
Remember when.......? Many of us remember this great classic 1958 Pontiac Star Chief Series 58-28 Catalina hardtop sedan even though there were less than 22 thousand ever made. It's all there, the 369 V-8 just puuuuurrrrrrrrs, it has an automatic transmission, power brakes, a working radio, a working heater—AND it even has cruise control. Overall miles are 109K, and it's a 2nd owner car. We believe the original paint colors were Calypso Green and Patina Ivory. As mentioned in the video, it does have some rust issues including floor boards and will need that taken care. But you could quickly do that, paint the hood and trunk to its original color, maybe replace the carpet and give it a lube, oil and filter. This survivor is an eye catcher and even though it needs restored, the interior is in good shape over all as is the body and most of the paint. You won't get in trouble with the spouse when you buy this one because you can drive it while you restore it and you'll be cruisin' into summer.

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.





1957 Pontiac Star Chief 4 door hardtop
I really like this car..the two tone color scheme is apparent with the outside and inside colors...if only cars today had such matching color schemes! The rocket motif is apparent on the side and back end of the car. Note the tremendous detail...twin rocket ships on the front fenders, chrome bows in the interior roof line...very stylish!

1974 Pontiac Grand Prix SJ
Here are some pictures after the car is 98% finished. We still need to adjust the body and doors for a better fit. The paint is the original factory Regatta Blue Acrylic Urethane. The body panels and glass and lenses are 100% original as is the interior (except carpet is new).There was only minor surface rust anywhere including under the vinyl top. Engine is the factory matching numbers 455 punched out to a 462 with factory Ram Air headers and Magnaflows. The car sounds great! I'll post a video with sound soon. We have extra parts for this car if anyone needs help restoring another Grand Prix.
