The Pontiac Chieftain was produced by Pontiac from 1949 to 1958. The 1949 Chieftain and Streamliner models were the first all-new car designs by Pontiac in the post-WWII era. Both inline-6 and 8 cylinder engines were offered and in 1951, the horsepower rating on the “straight 8” was increased to 116 hp. This beautiful numbers-matching Black/Grey 1951 Chieftain runs like a top. Some very interesting options were included with this vehicle and include a radio with seven vacuum tubes, tissue dispenser, under-seat heaters, gas gauge, ammeter, oil pressure gauge, and a temperature gauge with marks for 100, 180and 230 degrees. The 268.2 cubic inch inline 8 is mated to a 3-speed manual transmission with column shift. This is an extreme original including the interior and seat fabric. Use as is or restore as desired. This charmer will not disappoint. This 1951 Pontiac Chieftain Coupe is located at our Milwaukee showroom.

1960 Pontiac Catalina Safari

1960 Pontiac Catalina Safari

Engine: 5.7L LS1 V8
Transmission: 4 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 25,000 ( since rebuilt )

Now for sale at Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is a unique 1960 Pontiac Catalina Safari wagon. This is not the family wagon that your dad bought in 1960! This baby has been customized from stem to stern. Covered in a rich Brandywine Metallic-over-Gray two-tone color scheme, this sleek restomod has a classic look with a modern touch. Inside, its custom tan interior sports synthetic leather seating (including a power driver's seat), with all new carpeting and headliner, a custom overhead console, custom door panels, and dual front and rear Vintage A/C systems. The custom-ride nature continues with its tilt column, topped by a billet aluminum steering wheel, AM/FM/CD radio with 4 speakers, and tinted glass all around. Its digital dash helps the driver monitor the critical functions of the Nickens Brothers-built Corvette LS1 and 4L60E auto trans, which only have about 25K miles since being transplanted into their new host. A custom ECU with PSI wiring harness provide modern serviceability and enable the use of all the new electronic goodies needed for the LS1/4L60E combo. The stout LS1 breathes in via a custom Spectre CAI, and exhausts via a custom dual exhaust setup that sounds great. A big Champion aluminum radiator with electric fan helps keep the powerplant running cool, and a finned transmission cooler helps do the same for the 4L60E. Its Air Ride suspension has plenty of RideTech parts, and the controls and gauges to monitor the pressures are housed in a custom console to the left of the driver's seat. Naturally, all these accoutrements will get the driver's juices flowing enough that the speedometer may be overlooked enough that a good set of brakes become crucial. Of course, that's been thought of too, with huge Corvette slotted/cross-drilled rotors up front, and slotted/cross-drilled Wilwood rotors out back - all of which are nabbed by the Corvette front calipers and Wilwoods at the rear, which serve to scrub off the excess velocity you may have inadvertently generated during spirited driving. Its extra-meaty ultra-low profile Falken performance radials (235/35-19 front, 275/35-20 rear) help keep plenty of rubber on the road whilst you're barreling down the interstate, and they are set off nicely by the Intro Retro billet wheels that they're wrapped around. Additional options on this custom 1960 Pontiac Catalina Safari station wagon for sale include Air Conditioning, AM/FM/CD Radio, Aluminum Wheels, Power Brakes, Power Driver's Seat, Power Steering, Seat Belts, Synthetic Leather Seating, and Tilt Wheel.
