Vehicle Description

Sunnyside Chevrolet of Elyria, Ohio in conjunction with Greg's Sports, Classic, & Muscle is proud to offer for sale this beautiful 1956 Pontiac Chieftain Catalina Dual Quad!

So, its 1956 and Pontiac is like all the other "performance" manufacturers and the WW2 vets are thinking let's go fast. Pontiac develops a dual quad set up for NASCAR and runs off about 200 copies of them. Then the GM boys' figure lets run a production version and they come up with a 285 horsepower "Strato Streak" dual quad version for their lineup. This beauty is so equipped. Correct 523554 dual quad intake manifold. Correct 522010 heads. For 1956 we are talking 285 horsepower of dual quad fun. For those of you aficionado's out there it's a model 860.

Correctly finished in its original (per the trim tag) Nimbus Grey over Vista Blue this is quite a stunning color combination. The paint was done 20 plus years ago in single stage lacquer and presents itself like it was done 2 years ago, it remains ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. The quality of the work that was done years ago is exemplary. The chrome is stunning and the interior very nice. This one has won a lot of trophies for the previous owner (some of which we have and some of which we have pictures of) a that include Pontiac Nationals Award from 2008.

Three speed on the column, Armstrong steering and brakes, and a big engine. Just the way we like em. This beauty is equipped with the rare under seat heater/defroster option just in case your planning that road trip to Alaska this winter....

This Ponchmo runs and drives as you would expect, performs nicely and floats down the road. If you've ever driven a car like this you know exactly what we are talking about. Fire it up, mash the gas, open the dual quads and smile away.

Please look at the extensive set of photos on this car they are a very accurate representation.

Drive it, show it, keep it in a bubble and polish it as a prized possession, the choice is yours once you make it yours.

We stand behind our thoughts on this car by offering our travel expenses guarantee- come see the car and if we have materially misrepresented its condition we will gladly pay half of your travel expenses up to $500.00- this offer had been in place since we sold our first classic and we haven't paid the money yet.... We pride ourselves on having good cars and representing them properly.

Additional pictures and video are available, please call 440-365-7311 for more photos, information or to schedule a test drive.
