1959 Pontiac Star Chief
Here's a cool old 59 Star Chief sedan I saved from being cut into a couch. A little cleaning and a tune-up, and it is a fully functioning car again. Gotta love Craigslist!
1960 Pontiac "Ramona" Tribute to Scrapped Ventura Car
A few still photos preface this short tribute video to what I found out was "Ramona'" to it's previous owner.. A 1960 Pontiac Ventura 4 dr flat top, poor Ramona was swamped in a Hurricane in Key West Florida and her sheet metal corroded. The roof was so bad it was perforated. Before that though, she had been fixed up pretty nicely. In the glove compartment were receipts for new dual Exhaust, rebuilt transmission and rebuilt heads on the engine, rebuilt front end and new brake system.. I bought the car on Ebay for $100. Of course, it cost about $700 more to drag it back to Charlotte NC.. I originally was going to strip it were it was by my pal Todd suggested we bring it to NC.. Good thing he did. The parts from this car turned out to be a gold mine. The Exhaust system currently serves in the '60 Catalina and I have plans for the engine soon. It's always great to have spare parts before you need them and this had plenty.. Power steering pump, power brake Booster, front end parts.. the ball joints and bushings had less than 2000 miles on them.. Brake drums and bearings all had low miles on them, too.. Even the frame was good but nobody wanted it so I saved the 3:08 rear, cut it up with a sawzall and hauled it to the scrap yard.. Got $300 back for the carcass! Now the rest of these parts are up for grabs as I have another parts car on the way.
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.
