Lot #457 1953 PONTIAC CHIEFTAIN 2 DOOR CONVERTIBLE
Lot #457 - This beautiful Pontiac Chieftain Deluxe convertible is a vision right off the Silver Screen. With its Hollywood looks, the car screams show me the sun. On the stage or on the street, this car has the look. The optional equipment includes a fresh rebuilt 268cid straight 8 motor with less than 40 miles on the build. Everything on the motor was redone professionally top to bottom. This car has had many improvements. The fresh 2 stage paint has been color sanded by a true professional. The rare optional dual range Hydra-matic transmission has also been professionally gone through to insure a dependable drive. The power top has just recently been replaced with a high quality cloth top. The power top operates perfectly with no issues. There is also a matching boot. The beautiful Indian Head hood ornament lights up. Upgraded 12-volt system, original AM radio, stylish wide white wall tires, fender skirts, lots of chrome, "Panorama View" instrument panel. New original equipment door sill plates. Stylish two tone interior, all the lights, horn and signals all work, one piece front windshield. Now that Pontiac is no longer producing cars, this will surely add to its collector status. This car is a rare car, which is very hard to find in this pristine condition. The production on the 8 cylinder convertibles is known to be very low. All of the work on this car has been in preparation for the 2010 Scottsdale Event. This scarce piece of Pontiac history would be an excellent and very rare addition to anyone's collection.
