1958 Pontiac Chieftain 2 Door Hard Top DGC206C VIN. 6758H3206. I
sold this Pontiac way back around 1986 to Olav Lunde a local
business man. Lunde owned the car many years and took very good
care of it. After he died at the age of 93 I do not not know what
happened to the Pontiac? About 2015 I came across this '58 Pontiac
for sale and it looked real familiar. Then I put it together, it
was Lunde's car. It was back in eastern Washington in Ellensburg
Washington. I bought it back. Has recites from Lunde in the trunk.
I bought the Pontiac originally in either Spokane or Yakima
Washington in 1986? It was sold new in Wapato Washington from
Treise Motors and still has the license plate frame on the front. I
was going to the Packard picnic and not having driven it yet I took
the '58. I have to tell you it was a pleasure driving it. I still
can't believe how well it runs and drives. I drove it about 80
miles round trip, mostly freeway. The Pontiac is stock except for
new just installed last year power disc brakes on the front. New
wide whites last year. Larry, the last owner, did quite a bit last
year and I have the receipts. I also have the receipts from Lunde
dating back to 1988. The Pontiac is really straight and solid. We
found 1 spot of rust in the left rear quarter. Check out all the
underside photos. The paint has been brush touched in the wrong
color in several spots. You can find some small bubbling, again
check out the photos. Interior is very nice. Seats have been redone
at some time and it has seat belts too. One more thing about this
Pontiac... when I bought it the first time it had Bonneville on the
hood and you will see in the receipts the early ones say
Bonneville. The reason I mention this is because when someone put
Pontiac back on they did not get the color matched very well and
now you know why. So I got to drive it to the picnic and before I
went I checked it out to see if all the lights etc. worked.
Everything was working even the back up lights. Amazing. It's all
serviced and safety checked and ready to go. Cond. # 3 mainly
because of the paint touch up. Well guess what, I sold it in 2018
and I just bought it back again. It's the same great car. Last
owner put about 4,000 miles on it. Now has 72,108 miles showing.
Just after we bought it back I was backing out the door and it just
quit. The float just sunk. Carb now rebuilt. Old cars... you just
never know what will happen. Great car again.
