For Sale: 1956 Pontiac Star Chief in Arlington, Texas


Vehicle Description

1956 Pontiac Star Chief

One glance at this 1956 Pontiac Star Chief and you will instantly understand the phrase "they just don't make 'em like they used to." Living in a time where cars are thrown together in factories as cheaply and quickly as possible you miss cars like this where the styling of every little piece seemed just as important as the rest. The steel bodies became canvases for unique colors and flashy trim with little details designed for even the smallest areas of the car. The classic Pontiac may not always get the press that the tri five Chevys do but many would argue they have even more of a luxurious appearance. This beautiful 56 has a stock style appearance but has been completely frame off restored. Virtually every single piece on the car was gone through and replaced or rebuilt to look like new. The only customizations include molding in the rear continental kit and chroming the rear fender skirts. The body of the car is coated in a Red and White that has a great shine. This paired with all of the highly polished out chrome and trim work creates a very sleek looking exterior. Original style wheels and hubcaps are found under all four corners and incorporate wide white wall tires for the perfect "classic" look. 1956 Pontiac Star Chief Catalina 4 Door Hardtop

Getting those wheels spinning is a 316 c.i. Strato streak V8 that starts up smoothly and runs without issues. Opening the hood you will be transported back to 56 because the engine was finished out to look as it would from the factory. The block, heads and Pontiac valve covers are painted in Green like it would be originally. Paired with the engine is a Strato-Flight Hydramatic transmission that shifts nice and smoothly.

The interior of the car is Red and White to match the exterior. The upholstery work is all in great shape and the bench seats both have plenty of padding. The dash of the car is topped with all of the stock style gauges, knobs, switches, etc and all are working properly. The trunk has been carpeted and finished out cleanly and is where you will find the original jack still in place.

Add this unique classic to your collection for $55,000.00!
