Exquisite example of a seldom seen 1955 Pontiac Star Chief Catalina Coupe Custom. In 1955 the Pontiac Star Chief reigned as Pontiac’s top-of-the-line with a completely new body with eleven inch longer rear overhang. An all-new 287 V8 was introduced in 1955 as well. As the VIN number indicates this car is the real deal. It was built in California as a 28-series (124” longer wheelbase) with the Four Speed HydraMatic Transmission. Painted in an extremely rare color combination of Black Cherry and Stone White, with matching leather Interior. This Star Chief was ordered new as seen in the Original Bill of Sale at ROC Cutri Pontiac, In SouthGate California, on June 24th, 1955. Most of the original Pontiac Owner’s Purchasing Package are included which documents this information, even having Original Stamped Keys . This car underwent a through and very extensive nut and bolt concours restoration where no expense were spared. This entire car is in absolute show quality condition with attention to detail throughout. The exterior was beautifully designed and is truly automotive artwork. The body is perfectly straight and the paint is mirror like finished. All of the glass, trim and chrome is beyond excellent in conditioning. The interior has been completely restored and complements the exterior perfectly. The interior is very spacious and elegant. The trunk compartment is has been restored and home to the spare tire and original jack assembly. The engine compartment is highly detailed with many factory correct items, with everything being rebuilt and placed back in its original casing. The car is powered by the original 287 V8. The upgraded four- speed HydraMatic Transmission is correct to the car. The engine starts and runs beautifully and the Four Speed HydraMatic transmission shifts very smoothly. The undercarriage is perfectly detailed throughout. This car performs wonderfully and is a pleasure to drive. It is a multiple show car winner in many different classes. Most Star Chiefs are not nearly restored to the level of this one. This is the Perfect Pontiac for the die hard fan of the Pontiac Division.
