1959 Pontiac Star Chief Tri-Power Coupe
1959 Pontiac Star Chief Tri-Power Coupe showing 64,272 miles offered by Gas Monkey Garage with a Buy It Now or Best Offer!
1959 was the first year of the "Wide Track" Pontiacs, built on GM's new "X Chassis" the Star Chief incorporated Jet Age styling cues with long lines, stabilizer fins and "Turbine Exhaust" rear treatments that hinted at what the future of transportation would be like (everyone thought we would be driving Flying Cars by the end of the century, that was 20 years ago, what happened?)
This nicely restored example was acquired from a long term collection and was restored to a very high level some time ago. The exterior presents very well with a high quality finish that has a good gloss and is complemented by the abundance of gleaming factory chrome trim. All trim is present and in good condition as well as the bumpers and emblems (see all 100+ pics).
The interior is in phenomenal condition with all dash components present and showing well. The carpets, dash door panels, head liner & seats are in good condition with the exception of a torn area on the drivers seat as see in the photos.
Under hood pics show the 389 CID Tri-Power V8 mated to an automatic transmission w/ P/S & P/B that has been maintained & driven regularly throughout the years and continues to fire right up and run smoothly.
Underside photos reveal a clean and solid chassis that hasn't been altered or modified (again. See all 100+ photos).
As nice as this Star Chief is, it isn't perfect. There is a crack inside the right front window, the drivers seat has an area that is torn and the heater box has been removed for reasons unknown? This would make the addition of a modern A/C unit much easier if you desire.
While this Star Chief does run and drive very well, it will need to be completely inspected and serviced before any extended driving to ensure safety and reliability (due to our filming schedule we cannot perform any additional work on this car or build it for you). The winning bidder may have the option of coming to the shop to pick up the Star Chief
If you're looking for an iconic 1959 Pontiac Star Chief Coupe you won't find a better example that's priced to sell! This would be perfect for Cruise Night, Advertising and Promotional use or as a kick ass addition to your collection, you decide!
