Nicely restored, you won’t see one of these at pretty much any car show.
While Pontiac is sadly not with us anymore, the legendary American car brand certainly graced us with some amazing designs. This 1957 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible is no exception, tastefully encapsulating much of the glamour of the decade many consider to be the pinnacle in American car design. It’s also quite rare and will surely cause a stir everywhere it goes.
Thanks to a faithful restoration, this classic Pontiac appears just as it should. The Caribbean Coral paint is in great shape, correctly portraying what this Star Chief Convertible wore on the dealer lot when it was new. This car came with dual mirrors, so the driver can keep an eye on traffic on either side. The white power convertible top is new and there’s a convertible top boot, which is a luxurious touch for this classic. Loads of shiny brightwork, wide whitewall radial tires, genuine Pontiac hubcaps, and white trim pieces emphasize the classy nature of this ride.
When the top is down, the interior is on full display, and it shows great. White vinyl and chrome trim accentuates the luxurious front bucket seats, while factory seatbelts for the front and back seats are included. That amazing Caribbean Coral paint color makes its way onto the tops of the doors and across the dash, making the exterior and interior flow together. The original gauges and controls are all included. The white, chrome, and Caribbean Coral steering wheel has been fully restored, keeping the interior completely up to factory specs.
The 347ci V8 runs smooth and is date code correct. It works with a Hydramatic transmission, while the factory rear end ratio is a nice 3.23:1. Power steering and power brakes, both included from the factory, make driving this classic Pontiac a dream.
Few 1957 Pontiac Star Chief Convertibles were made and even fewer have survived. That means you will get plenty of stares and loads of interest with this car. The unique opportunity to own this ride comes from Vicari Auction.
