1952 Pontiac Catalina -- Additional Info:

This 1952 Pontiac Chieftain is affordable fun in the kind of vintage car that's disappearing from the classic car scene. After all, you get eye-catching features like the pastel paint and straight-eight engine. It's all in a fun cruising machine and all for an affordable price. This is a unique and stunning classic sedan. Combining the last of the old-school, pre-war curves with a sneak preview of what was to come in the later 1950s, this slick Pontiac... manages to be both sporty and formal at the same time. After all, that minty green is pure '50s nostalgia. The body is quite straight, and this is highlighted by the full brightwork package that includes the intricate front grille, wraparound rear bumper, and emblems embedded in the rear fenders. Plus, we love the all the full-length side trim. And as a classic Pontiac, you get the hallmark streaks running along the hood and matching piece cascading down the deck lid. In fact, this one even gets the details right with everything from color-matched fender skirts to the correct polished wheel covers. Inside you'll find a very vintage atmosphere. You can tell that areas like the seats, door panels, headliner and other key areas have received proper attention, but it all retains the classic look. And you have great pieces on display, like the spot light, blower controls, and an aircraft-inspired dash that's pure jet-age cool. And more evidence of the fabulous '50s can be found in the original steering wheel and stylish horn button. Pontiac's straight-eight motor earned a reputation for being reliable and quite sturdy. These naturally balanced powerplants had a creamy smoothness usually reserved for luxury cars, and helped Pontiac transcend its budget-minded market placement. This example has a tidy look and well-kept belts, wires, and hoses. So this special motor has been well-respected. Authentic right down to the oil bath air cleaner, this eight-cylinder engine is a real attention-getter for its honest and correct appearance. This torquey motor is mated to a Hydramatic automatic transmission, which helps make this a fine cruiser today. This Chieftain is a real driver that turns heads because of its classic features. It's an honest, intriguing, and affordable sedan that represents true 1950s motoring. Don't miss out, call today!
