1958 Pontiac CHIEFTAIN

1958 PONTIAC CHIEFTAIN------ITS BEEN PARKED FOR MANY YEARS AND US CAR GUYS KNOW THAT BARN FINDS ARE NOT 'GET IN AND GO' TYPE CARS. LETS TALK ABOUT THE PROS FIRST. VERY NICE 1958 GM 'COOL LINES' VEHICLE WEARING MOST OF ITS ORIGINAL PAINT, MINUS THE HOOD AND LEFT FENDER.....NO ANSWER WHY. THE INNER LEFT WHEELHOUSE IS MISSING AS WELL, BUT THAT WASNT GOING TO INTERFERE WITH WHAT I HAD PLANNED SO NO BIG DEAL. ACTUALLY, THATS THE ONLY THING MISSING ON THE WHOLE CAR! GOOD NEWS! THE SILVER AND WHITE INTERIOR REALLY SET THIS CAR OFF W THE RED/WHITE EXTERIOR, AGAIN ALL THERE AND CHROME GALORE!!! 3 SPEED WAS SWAPPED FROM THE COLUMN TO THE FLOOR MANY YEARS AGO, ANOTHER COOL TOUCH WITH THE SMOOTH SHIFTING 3 SPEED AT YOUR KNEE. THE CONS.......YOUR NOT GETTING FAR W THAT ENGINE FROZE TIGHT. BUMMER. ITS BEEN THAT WAS FOR A LOOOONG TIME TOO. MARVEL MYSTERY OIL IN THERE NOW, AND THAT HASNT WORKED AS OF YET. THIS CAR WAS IN A DIRT FLOOR BARN AND THE UNDERSIDE PAID FOR IT. LOTS OF RUST DOWN BELOW ANDTHE EXHAUST....BRAKELINES, FRONT DRIVERS FLOOR......LONG GONE. AGAIN, WASNT GOING TO MESS WITH MY PLANS AT ALL. INTERIOR IS IN TACT AND COULD BE DRIVEN 'AS IS', BUT YES THE SEATS ARE ALITTLE TATTERED AND THERES A FEW SMALL HOLES IN THE HEADLINER, ETC. ALL EXTRA OR MISSING MOULDINGS ARE IN EITHER THE BACK SEAT, OR THE TRUNK.....YES......ITS ALL THERE AND NOT ALL BENT UP! ORIGINAL FLOOR MATS STILL WITH THIS CAR, NOT SURE IF THEY ARE USABLE OR NOT. TRUNK IS VERY SOLID EXEPT FOR THE LEFT REAR CORNER AROUND THE GAS FILLER TUBE....SEE TRUNK PIC. THE LAST 'CON' IS THAT SOMEBODY FELT THE NEED TO CUT THE RUST OUT OF THREE AREAS ON THE DRIVERS SIDE ONLY. LOWER FENDER, AND IN FRONT AND REAR OF THE REAR TIRE....AGAIN WHY???....I DUNNO. THE GOOD PART IS THAT 1958 CHEVY LOWERS ARE ALL THE SAME PIECES, SO THE LOWERS WOULDNT BE DIFFICULT TO PATCH W THE CORRECT METAL AND STILL THE CAR WOULD REMAIN ITS ORIGINAL PAINT!!
CARS ARE ONLY ORIGINAL ONCE, AND MINUS THE PAINTED HOOD AND ONE FENDER, THIS CAR IS STILL ALL ORIGINAL AFTER 58 YEARS OF THIS 1958 MODEL, THAT PAINT HAS A LOT TO SAY FOR IT. TO SUMMERIZE......THIS CAR IS A PROJECT AND TO SOME IT MAY NEED EVERYTHING.......TO OTHERS(LIKE MYSELF!) IT JUST MAY NEED A 1995 96 LT1 POWERED CADILLAC CHASSIS BENEATH IT TO MIX OLD TIME COOL WITH MODERN DAY RIDE!!! CALL WITH ANY/ALL QUESTIONS, VERY NICE PIECE OF HISTORY HERE UP FOR GRABS.
PLEASE ONLY $100.00 INTO MY PAYPAL AS A NONREFUNDABLE DEPOSIT, THE REST TO BE DISCUSSED IN PERSON AT TIME OF AUCTIONS END. WIRE TRANSFERS, CASH WELCOME. VEHICLE CAN BE DELIVERED UP TO 100 MILES FOR $!00.00, I CAN DELIVER MYSELF, ANY FURTHER IS UP TO THE PURCHASER AND YOULL HAVE AMPLE TIME TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS, BUT I CANT STORE IT FOR THE WINTER!!! LOL.
CALL ME.........JIM 586-557-8190 CAN TEXT EXTRA PICS IF NEEDED BUT PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE IF I CANT ANSWER RIGHT AT THAT MOMENT.
RESERVE IS LOW FOR THIS CAR, MUCH LOWER THEN OTHERS SIMILAR 58's ON EBAY AND AROUND TOWN!! THANKS FOR LOOKING.....BID HIGH....BID WISE......THERES 1 PONTIAC PER EVERY 20 CHEVYS THIS YEAR....HOW MANY REMAIN LEFT TODAY!?!?!
I WILL BE ADDING DETAILS ABOUT THE CAR AS THEY COME TO ME. ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE ASK AND I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE ANYBODY/ANYONE TO COME CHECK THE CAR OUT FOR THEMSELVES. I DO UNDERSTAND THAT IN MOST CASES THAT ISNT POSSIBLE BUT THE OPTION IS THERE TO SHOW IM NOT HIDING NOTHING AND ALL I SAY IS TRUE AND CORRECT TO MY KNOWLEDGE.
THANKYOU FOR LOOKING.......BID HIGH.....BID WISE....DONT MISS OUT ON THIS BEAUTY! THERES OTHERS OUT THERE, BUT THIS COLOR COMBO CANT BE BEAT!!! TRUE CLASSIC! CALL JIM.....586-557-8190
