Up for sale/bid, a Pontiac Star Chief 'Chieftain', 9 passenger, all 3 front facing bench seats, 4 door station wagon.The 2nd and 3rd seats fold down flat. Rear hatch door entry in good working order. PLEASE SEE PICTURES. Also has opening/closing 'air flow' side wing windows for 2nd back bench seat. The engine has been serviced as well as transmission and runs smoother the more we have driven it. New battery, shocks, brakes, electric fuel pump. All gauges functioning including the cigarette lighter. Some minor repairs inside such as, window insulation, original glove box lock, and rear latch cover, which we have. PLEASE SEE PICTURES. Seats are in superb shape as are the doors and whole interior, in general. SEE PICTURES. Transmission has a tendency to downshift into second at times. I believe it is a simple fix as we have had the transmission completely service. No leaks.
Has original radio which is not working. White walls put on new approximately 3500 miles ago (we have receipt for purchase and mounting of tires from dad). Engine is a 316 cu. in. V8. Car has 21,000+ miles on it at the moment. The car was inherited from my father who was a car collector. He was the 3rd owner and we have the licenses and registrations from the first two owners, including the trip/care notebook. Also newspaper pictures and awards dad won with it. It also has the original Pontiac owner's manual as well as a reprint 1956 Shop Manual. We are selling my wife's 'baby' due to her failing health, which makes it extremely painful for her to drive anymore. We WILL be selling to someone who will appreciate and luv it the way pop did and my wife does.
So serious inquiries only. All reasonable offers will be considered. And we are motivated to sell to any fair offer. Thanks, Geri and Joseph
