Lot #1232 - Delivers unique mid-50's style and is equipped with a rare Tri-Power 347/317hp "NASCAR Certified" engine mated to a 3-speed column-shifted transmission. Compression was rated at 10:1. The Star Chief was Pontiac's prestige model that could be easily identified by chrome star trim along its sides. Just 12,789 Star Chief convertibles were produced for 1957 and they are a rare sight today, especially with the Tri-Power configuration. This is a frame on driver quality restoration that is well-preserved and shows beautifully with only a few minor cosmetic imperfections. Other options include heater and factory reverse lights. Manually operated top is in good condition. Interior is comfortable, complete and in great shape. From the Michael Jenkins Collection. Comes with binder of photo documentation and restoration.
