1952 Pontiac Chieftain

This 1952 Pontiac Chieftain is an exceptionally cool and well-documented eight-cylinder classic, or well less than the price of a new economy car. This is a unique and stunning classic coupe. Combining the last of the old-school, re-war curves, ith a sneak preview of what was to come in the later 1950s, his slick Pontiac manages to be both sporty and formal at the same time. The black paint is factory correct, ut it benefits from a mid-life refresh. This helps highlight the body that has remained amazingly straight for 63 years. Black is also great to show off the original chrome trim, ncluding the streaks running along the hood, atching piece cascading down the deck lid, he intricate front grille, ull side arrowhead trim, nd emblems embedded in the rear fenders. Those who know Pontiacs will be especially happy to see that the amber Indian head hood ornament still lights up at night to help lead the way.One glance inside will convince you that someone really looked after this coupe. The gray cloth interior was switched over at some point to a much more durable and allergy-friendly vinyl. The care that went into making sure there was intricate detail, nd look period correct, how that this was a valued family member. The dash is pure jet-age cool, ith a giant radio speaker that's aviation inspired, nd a slick pod of gauges ahead of the driver. Stylish bright trim on the door panels gives a hint of things to come in the fabulous 50s. More evidence of the can easy life can be found in the original steering wheel and stylish horn button.Pontiac's 268 cubic-inch straight-eight motor earned a reputation for being smooth, eliable, nd quite sturdy. These naturally balanced powerplants had a creamy smoothness usually reserved for luxury cars, nd helped Pontiac transcend its budget-minded market placement. Authentic right down to the oil bath air cleaner, his numbers-matching motor is a real attention-getter for its honest survivor appearance. This torquey motor is mated to the original three-speed column-shifted manual transmission, hich actually makes this a fine cruiser today. This is especially true thanks to the modern wheel and tire package that currently is installed on this Pontiac.If you need any more evidence that this has been a cherished classic all its life, e'll be happy to show you a binder full of documentation, ncluding a copy of the original title, riginal letter from the dealership, riginal service guide, nspection records from the 80s, nd owner's manual.
