1950 Pontiac ChieftainI have a 1950 Pontiac Chieftain Silver Streak 8 business coupe for sale that I picked up as a "complete" basket case with the intention of completing it as a hot rod. After assessing the vehicle, I decided that it needed more than I currently have time for and decided to pass it along. If it doesn't sell, it get will get put in line behind my many other projects.
The chassis had been completed and painted before work stopped on the car. The front end has been rebuilt, including new springs and shocks. An American City Classic INC 12" front disc brake conversion has been partially installed with their spindles. The calipers, brackets and lines have not been installed but are included. Engine and transmission cross members have been installed for a V8 engine and automatic transmission. The car does not currently have an engine or transmission, but it has had a 350 Chevy and 455 Olds at different times, both mated to a Turbo 400 automatic transmission. The rear axle is a rebuilt Ford 8.8" Trac Lok (posi) with 3.73 gears. It has new leaf springs and 2" lowering blocks. Tires and wheels were purchased new and installed prior to sitting and never driven on.
The body was pulled from the frame, striped and primed. The floors and trunk pan were professionally repaired and work had started on the body rust, but never completed. There is rust repair needed in both rear wheel lips and splash panel areas, passenger door bottom, left side windshield corner, behind the driver door at the beltline and lower portion of the deck lid as seen in pictures.
I assembled what came with the car to see how "complete" it actually is. Below is a list of what I could tell is missing, besides the engine and transmission. Most parts are the same as a Chevy and are available either new or used.

The extra grill and apron are included. I don't know what the apron came off of, but it came with the car.
Vehicle will be listed locally and the auction will end should I sell it before I get a bid.
Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer, but I will be available to assist with pickup if needed. I am open to storing the vehicle for a short time after funds are received due to the holiday season. Extra parts not attached will be placed inside of the vehicle. Be sure to tell your shipper this when getting a quote.
