1955 Pontiac Star Chief1955 Pontiac Star Chief is one cool, ye-turning cruiser. One glance at this car and you will instantly understand the craftsmanship of the classic American car. Pontiac may not always get the press that some other GM products do, ut many would argue this one has even more of a luxurious appearance. This beautiful ’55 has a stock style appearance but has been completely frame off restored by Motor City Steel in Detroit, I. Further upgrades and customization completed by All Speed Customs in Muskegon Heights, I.
Virtually every single piece on the car was gone through and replaced or rebuilt to look like new.
The body of the car is coated in original Green and White that has a great shine. One long-time car customizer called it “one of the best restorations that he has seen - a great example of classic ’50’s era design and craftsmanship.”
This paired with all of the highly polished out chrome and trim work creates a very sleek looking exterior. Original wheels and hubcaps are found under all four corners and incorporate wide white wall tires for the perfect "classic" look. Getting those wheels spinning is a 316 c.i. Strato streak V8 that starts up smoothly and runs without issues. Opening the hood you will be transported back to 1955 because the engine was finished out to look as it would from the factory. The block has been painted in Green like it would be originally. The Valve covers are freshly painted and look great. Paired with the engine is a Strato-Flight Hydramatic transmission that shifts nice and smoothly. The interior of the car matches the exterior perfectly. The upholstery work is all in great shape and the bench seats both have plenty of padding. The dash of the car is topped with all of the stock style gauges, nobs, witches, tc and all are working properly - there is only one emblem missing from the passenger side of the dash. The trunk has been carpeted and finished out cleanly and is where you will find the original jack still in place and we have included some parts and service manuals to help keep the car original.
Disk brakes have been added to the front wheels for better control.
