For Sale: 1951 Pontiac Chieftain in Lutz, Florida


Vehicle Description

This 1951 Pontiac Chieftain is affordable fun in the kind of vintage car that's disappearing from the classic car scene. After all, you get eye-catching features like the metallic paint and straight-eight engine. It's all in a fun cruising machine and all offered for an affordable price.

This is a unique and stunning classic coupe. Combining the last of the old-school, pre-war curves with a sneak preview of what was to come in the later 1950s, this slick Pontiac manages to be both sporty and formal at the same time. After all, the correct Berkshire Green is pure '50s nostalgia, but it was resprayed later in life to have a nice hint of metallic for an added touch of flair. In fact, this one even gets the details right with everything from color-matched fender skirts to the correct amber chief leading the way. And It has a nice upgraded cruise attitude with the color-matched windshield sunshade, smoothie wheels, and whitewall tires. The body is quite straight, and this is highlighted by the full brightwork package that includes the intricate grille, wraparound bumpers, sweeping side trim, and emblems embedded in the rear fenders. And as a classic Pontiac, you get the hallmark streaks running along the hood and matching piece cascading down the deck lid.

Inside you'll find a very vintage atmosphere. This has a highly original feeling that has also received some attention. So you get vintage pinstripe look to the button-top seats, but a far fresher feel than the 1950s. And the door panels are done to match. The dash has a terrific art deco kind of style with the big ornamental speaker grille in the center, classic steering wheel w/Pontiac logo horn button, and a stylish full gauge package in front of you.

Pontiac's straight-eight motor earned a reputation for being both smooth and quite sturdy. These naturally balanced powerplants had a creamy smoothness usually reserved for luxury cars, and that helped Pontiac transcend its budget-minded market placement. Authentic right down to the bright yellow block and oil bath air cleaner, this 268 cubic-inch eight-cylinder engine is a real attention-getter for its honest and correct appearance. More than just look great this runs with the strength of a well-maintained machine. Plus, you have great cruising features like a Hydramatic four speed automatic transmission, a nice modern tread behind the classic whitewalls, and upgraded front disc brakes.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and service manuals. This Chieftain is a real driver that turns heads because of its classic features. It's an honest, intriguing, and affordable coupe that represents true 1950s motoring. Don't miss out, call today!
