This 1953 Pontiac Chieftain tin woody wagon has that look of a
classic road trip machine. Can't you just imagine crossing a state
park and then having a tailgate picnic on the back? The whole
straight-eight package really does have that level of authentic
Pontiac wagons were more expensive than the convertibles, and the
body tag tells us this was born an eight-cylinder car. So you know
it was rare when new, and exceptional to find today. That's why
they took the time to make sure it keeps a classic style. The
maroon paint is the perfect color to distinguish the rounded metal
while still having a warm enough tone to complement the simulated
painted wood on the exterior. And you also can tell there was a lot
of thought and investment in the brightwork. More than just having
an excellent shine on the grille and bumpers, this is complete
right down to the intricate side trim. And the silver streaks on
the hood are a classic Pontiac favorite. And you'll love all the
vintage details, including the windshield sunshade, whitewall
tires, rear fender skirts, side spotlight, and a correct amber
chief leading the way.
More of the stylish maroon awaits you inside. Just like the
exterior, the color goes well with the wood-like tones and brown
inserts on the doors. But the first thing you'll really notice
about this layout is how comfy everything is. Plus, carpeting, nice
door panels, and a soft velour on the button-top seats give this
wagon a living room level of comfort. So you wouldn't mind being a
kid and watching the byways fly by from the back seat. But the most
fun is that classic tingle you get when you slip behind that artful
Pontiac steering wheel and gaze at the driver-oriented layout that
still keeps the heat and AM radio controls there for display. And
all that glossy real wood on the floor of the cargo area is both
fun to show off at the car shows and it offers plenty of space for
you to load up supplies for a full day of enjoyment.
Pontiac's straight-eight motor earned a reputation for being both
smooth and full of torque. This 268 cubic-inch motor looks
authentic right down to the oil bath air cleaner, and it has a tidy
look that you'll love showing off. And because a car like this
loves to be a comfortable driver, the Hydramatic automatic
transmission keeps this family wagon an easy cruiser.
It's hard not to get excited about something this distinctive and
rare. So if you're looking to turn heads with a true classic, call
