Newstalgia Motors Presents Car No.
1955 Pontiac Star Chief Custom
This car has found a new home!
However, we'd be happy to locate another one just for you.
That eye popping finish is the direct result of having the entire car completely disassembled, stripped to bare metal, carefully prepped, shot with PPG Deltron Aqua and White Mist paint, and clear coated. The fit and finish is excellent with uniform body panel gaps in perfect alignment. All weather stripping was replaced using NOS whenever possible. The body trim and chrome bumpers are shiny and in like new condition.
Like the exterior, the striking interior underwent a major restoration using custom dyed Aqua and White Leather upholstery on the seats and door panels, N.O.S carpet and headliner, and new mylar trim applied to the door panels.
Engine and Driveline
The numbers matching 287 CID V-8 was professionally rebuilt to OEM specs and converted for unleaded fuel. The Hydramatic automatic transmission was also professionally rebuilt. All suspension, brake system components, and other hardware were also replaced.
Wheels and Tires
710 x 15" wheels, wide whitewalls and NOS full hub caps.
Attention 50's Pontiac collectors: This fine, investment grade example of a correctly restored 1955 Pontiac Star Chief Custom Hardtop is a must have in any serious Pontiac collection!
