1940 Pontiac Deluxe Series Silver Streak
1940 Pontiac DeLuxe Silver Streak 6, model 2619. I bought this from an estate in Dec 2018 with no intention of reselling it. However a vehicle I sold in 2004 has become available for me to repurchase and since I rather regret selling it and my room is limited something has to go, and this is the only one I am willing to part with. The only repair I have had to make is to rebuild the brake master cylinder, was able to obtain an OE rebuild kit. It runs and drives as well as one could expect a mostly original vehicle of this vintage to. The previous owner converted it to 12 Volt electrical system, also added air conditioning which led to overheating which damaged the engine. A replacement was sourced and rebuilt by a local engine specialist well known to vintage car owners. The original radiator was replaced by a higher capacity custom aluminum unit. The condensor was relocated the the area under the driver's floorboard area with an electric fan. According to the widow the overheating issue was thus eliminated, but to be extra safe I added a simple coolant recovery system discretely located. The AC needs charged, and I have never used it. The odometer does not appear to work, however it showed 29,.360 when the previous owner titled it April 2006, but it has not changed while I have owned it. Previous owner had it repainted and close to a gallon of the paint comes with it. He also added an electric fuel pump used only to prime the lines after having not been driven for a period of time rather that cranking on it for however long to pull the fuel up with the engine mounted pump. Radio and clock are inoperative. I have no proof of actual mileage but as the photos show the interior appears to be all original with only a patch on the headliner above the passenger side sun visor. The body and frame are as near as I can determine essentially rust free. I have lots of other photos I will be happy to share. Rubber on the running boards is showing it's age. All glass appears to be original with proper trademarks and nice gaskets and lightly worn channels. While not a museum quality car, it is to my eye a very nice driver example or frankly I would not have purchased it, as at my current station in life I am not interested in any new projects. Currently living by the motto that it is cheaper to buy than build or restore. Be happy to answer any questions, etc.
