Description

1955 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible

In 1955, the Native American head design was to see its last hurrah. In order to appeal to youthful consumers looking for affordable performance vehicles, the old-fashioned Native American profile was replaced with a subtler, elegant emblem: a downward-facing, red arrowhead known as the "Dart" on the 1957 models. Before the 1950s, the Pontiac did flaunt many Native American names and iconography in its lineup.

For consignment, a time capsule if you will in the form of a 1955 Pontiac Star Chief. This car has been restored and sports nice paint, chrome aplenty, and it's a convertible. Looking at the updated engine bay which gleams and sparkles, and the 50's styled interior we are firmly landed on the mid 1950's

Exterior
Draped in deep end of the pool aqua and sporting chrome stars for the front quarters and a hockey stick shaped belt line spear in shiny stainless. This spear melts into the rounded over finned quarter panel toppers this car drips 50's design. Behind the rear wheel wells is a vertical ribbed shiny stainless panel which creates a background for the bumper curve around. Complete with round taillights and a curving up and down bumper a single exhaust exits on the passenger's side. The long and tall trunkline has a large inverted V and P O N T I A C just below. Lest we forget the large and in charge front bumper and grille combination with some teeth showing just behind another up and down design which curves around the front quarters. On top of the hood is the flying chief which is made up of a mixture of yellow bakelite and chrome. Interestingly, the headlights on either side have a crescent chrome trimmed bump up just above them, and also seen is a ribbed polished stainless stripe flanking either side of the flying chief. Shiny and beautiful 15-inch chromed wire wheels are encircled by wide white rubber all around. The tan canvas top is an easy operating convertible and has a clear rear plastic window. Also, the coolest V8 logo badges are attached, check those out they appear as lightning bolts.

Interior
A swing of the door and what to my wandering eyes does appear but original looking but new door panels in green vinyl and cream horizontal tuck and roll uppers. A large chrome spear makes the panel for the armrest and all shiny knobs, and the door actuator are seen. Moving to the seats more of the door motif shows up in green bolsters and bottoms and cream tuck and roll inserts. Green piping delineates the two sections of vinyl, and these front split back and rear full benches appear as new. So does the cream tonneau cover for the top when it's down. Looking towards the dash we see a full on metal aqua painted top and dash front. It has plenty of shiny trimmings throughout for the fan shaped speedo and several round gauges which also pepper the dash front. The original radio is in and looking like new as is the steering wheel fronting the dash. Handing below just above the green carpeting is Vintage A/C, and the toe kick interior panels have a lineup of small LED lights lighting the way. On the subject of no stone left unturned even the trunk had been painstakingly lined with the 2-tone vinyl and has a green carpeted floor.

Drivetrain
Under the large hood the hits just keep on coming with a fully restored and highly detailed 287ci Pontiac Strato-Streak V8. It has a 2-barrel carburetor on top and a 4-speed Hydra-matic automatic transmission. The rear axle is 3.23 gear ratio. Note this engine has a new radiator with an electric fan, and all bolt on parts for this mill are very clean.

Undercarriage
A frame off job sporting aqua floor pans and shiny rust-free black framing and undercarriage suspension and pumpkin. The X frame is near showroom and not even road dirt on this one! Independent coil springs are on the front and leaf springs for the rear, along with power drum braking all around. More beautiful presentation.

Drive-Ability
This mid 50's beauty fires right up and runs very smoothly. It drives beautifully and has good acceleration and handling. The interior is very comfy and the top moves up and down very smoothly. A/C blows cold.

So if you are in the market for something other than a Tri-Five bowtie, but still bleeds drive in styling and has plenty of nice chrome, even to excess, then look no further because it's right here. Just look for the smoke signals, and they do not come from this car's exhaust!
