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.

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.

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
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
Pontiac Star Chief Safari Wagon
A beautiful Pontiac Star Chief Safari in showroom condition. The camera's
white balance setting was slightly off when this beauty was photographed
and the car is actually a lighter blue in color. I note that these photos
showing a darker shade of blue have a lot more views and "likes" than the
lighter blue version; apparently viewers prefer the darker shade.
Rare 1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible Fuel-Injected 347 V8 315HP
I thought you'd like a look at this extremely rare 1957 Pontiac Bonneville
Convertible. 1957 was the first year for the Bonneville and it was only
offered as a convertible. When it was introduced, the Bonneville was the
fastest Pontiac ever produced. This Bonneville is number 116 of the only
630 produced in 1957. This is probably the finest restored example ever
offered for sale. It has been treated to a correct frame-off/rotisserie
restoration. Every part of this car is 100% factory correct and numbers
matching. Every component was restored to as new or better condition. Most
of the chrome was NOS and it all, the interior and exterior was show chrome
plated. The Bonneville is painted in Kenya Ivory with a Tartan red
interior. Boasts a fuel injected 347 300+hp( approximately 315 HP) V8,
Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, Wonderbar AM radio, a deluxe ivory
steering wheel, a padded dash, a clock, cowl vent, chrome wheel discs, and
whitewall tires. It has the total power group including a power-operated
convertible top, a power antenna, power steering, power brakes, power
windows, and an eight-way power-operated seat. This Bonneville was judged
396 out of 400 at the Pontiac Oakland Club Nationals and has been awarded
in every show it's been shown at. The 1957 Bonneville is a very rare car.
This Bonneville is one of the best of its kind in the world - it is
pristine museum quality. Thanks for taking a look!

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.
