1954 Pontiac Chieftain
This 1954 Pontiac Chieftain is affordable fun in the kind of vintage car that's disappearing from the classic car scene. After all, you get eye-catching features like the two-tone paint and straight-eight engine. It's all in a fun cruising machine and all for an affordable price. This is a unique and stunning classic coupe. Combining the last of the old-school, pre-war curves with a sneak preview of what was to come in the later 1950s, this slick Pontiac manages to be both sporty and formal at the same time. After all, that minty green is pure '50s nostalgia, and the deeper more metallic green on the roof adds a touch of flair. The body is quite straight, and this is highlighted by the full brightwork package that includes the intricate front grille, wraparound rear bumper, and emblems embedded in the rear fenders. Plus, we love the full side trim that looks basically like a continuous piece as it starts up front and flows until it frames the bottom half of the curvaceous rear fender. And as a classic Pontiac, you get the hallmark streaks running along the hood and matching piece cascading down the deck lid. In fact, this one even gets the details right with everything from color-matched fender skirts to the correct polished hubcaps over whitewall tires. Inside you'll find a very vintage atmosphere. This is highly original feeling has also received some attention, and so you get pieces like newer carpeting and newer cloth inserts on the button-top seats. The dash is pure jet-age cool, with a giant radio speaker that's aviation inspired... and yes this AM unit is still cranking out tunes! And we know you'll love piloting this classic from behind the original steering wheel and stylish horn button. Pontiac's 268 straight-eight motor earned a reputation for being smooth, reliable, and quite sturdy. These naturally balanced powerplants had a creamy smoothness usually reserved for luxury cars, and helped Pontiac transcend its budget-minded market placement. Authentic right down to the oil bath air cleaner, this eight-cylinder engine is a real attention-getter for its honest and correct appearance. This torquey motor is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission, which helps make this a fine cruiser today. This Chieftain is a real driver that turns heads because of its classic features. It's an honest, intriguing, and affordable coupe that represents true 1950s motoring. Don't miss out, call today!
