Vehicle Description

1956 Pontiac Chieftain This car is amazing! Purchased new in Medford, Ore. and kept by elderly woman owner until she gave it to her granddaughter. Body is super straight, interior is original and in excellent condition. Do not see rust anywhere. The stainless steel trim and chrome are excellent, as is the glass. Original owners manual in great condition! The engine runs excellent. Very smooth and lots of power. It is original condition. It is missing the glass windshield washer bottle, but they are available. You push a button on the floorboard to activate the window washer. The interior carpet was replaced with matching new due to fading. The package tray will be replaced with new and is on it's way. Years ago the top surfaces were repainted in the correct factory color. Guessing due to either oxidation or flaking. The lower blue/green paint is factory original. The data tag shown indicates the factory color is called Hialeah Green with Nimbus Gray. It looks like baby blue to me with maybe a hint of green, but it is a striking color combination. Interior colors are a green pattern cloth with light gray imitation leather. Everything works. The 56 Pontiac is reminiscent of the 55 Chevy Coupe, but with a lot more bling. The grille is a work of art. Note the small wings on the rear fenders. It has the original deluxe AM radio and amazingly it has all the original bakelite knobs intact. It still has the original Kleenex dispenser under the dash (shown). It has power steering and power brakes that both work well. The tires are the original still bias ply whitewall tires. It rides okay, but radial tires would make a big improvement, but would not look original. Mechanically and cosmetically, this car is in very good overall condition. It is not a #1 Concours show car, but I would say it is honestly between a #2-#3 condition car. This car is in well above average overall condition.
