$14,900  

Vehicle Description

Mostly Original, Solid, Stylish, Survivor, Stock Configuration

You might see Model A’s and T’s often, but Pontiac Touring Sedans are fairly rare. One thing that is really nice about this car is that so much of it is original, but yet it has survived in pretty good order. Its just a good looking, strikingly different, older original car, and pretty much the way it was built. The very earliest 30’s cars where not much for being driven on the highway, but by this time size &with this power allowed you to take 4-6 people in a far amount of comfort to the ice cream stand, or a long tour. The black and bright work is very striking, with the red striping. Its a real talk-about piece, and a car that has 80 plus years of stories of being enjoyed. You can say someone from 1937 had their hand on that, or sat in that seat, or turned that dial.

 

Current owner has enjoyed car approx 30 years. He bought from a car collector in the local area but for 50 years prior to that the car must have been particularly kept out of inclement weather. It is amazingly solid underneath. Oil changed yearly, or more often. Repairs as needed, including water pump, fuel pump, and manifold gaskets.

Test Drive-

In driving the car it started up easily, and accelerated as appeared to be correct. It actually requires almost no gas pedal at all to be applied when releasing the clutch, and I think that is because it such a large 8 cylinder engine. The clutch seemed to operate just fine. We where able to up shift, and down shift through all 3 gears, and they seemed to operate just fine. I do not find first gear is synchronized. Steering seems to work properly, and of course thin Bias build tires requires a little bit of steering wheel movement to aim this vehicle down the road, but that is typical of how they would have been in the day. Upon applying the brakes it seems to stop smoothly, and did not seem to pull incorrectly to one way or the other, and seemed to work fine. Exhaust Smokes for the first few blocks, then mostly quits ( engine oil smell)
