The slick black paint laid atop of the iconic 1950’s body lines on this classic Pontiac are to die for! This was the second generation of the Chieftain and back when it was being produced it featured cutting edge design qualities and a major upgrade under the hood. It was the first year that Pontiac dropped in the 316 CID V8 that was producing just over a whopping 190HP. Although it is not a true numbers matching car, you will still find a similar engine situated under the long heavy metal hood that has been freshened up. A trend that you will notice right away in both the interior and trunk area, is the well done tuck and roll upholstery. The extra labor that was needed to accomplish this look though was well worth it giving the car both a stylish 50’s look and a comfortable ride. While looking through the interior of this Chieftain, there was one thought that came to mind. What happened to this level of quality of craftsmanship and styling? The steering wheel alone has a glossy black paint with a chrome metal ring floating in the middle for the horn and a Chieftain emblem dipped in acrylic with a diamond background. This is the kind of attention to detail that has been lost over the years! The under carriage of this classic Pontiac is nearly as clean as the smooth finish on top and is show worthy. It is not just a pretty face! Jump in, turn the key, and almost instantly the V8 comes to life. It may be an automatic transmission, but don’t forget the parking brake! This transmission uses the neutral instead of a park position and relies on the parking brake to keep it from rolling away. Once the parking brake is removed, drop it into gear and cruise away with ease. The 316 has plenty of power to get you up to speed and cruises nicely. This Chieftain would make an excellent weekend cruiser that is guaranteed to turn heads where ever it goes! This vehicle is located in our Milwaukee showroom.
