Description

Zoom Classic Cars presents this 1955 Pontiac Chieftain 2-Door Sedan "Strato-Streak" in excellent condition. Whether you’re a collector or simply appreciate classic cars, the 1955 Pontiac Chieftain remains an iconic piece of automotive history. 1955 was a huge year for Pontiac. Of course, the big news was the new overhead-valve V-8 that replaced the long-serving flathead straight-six and straight-eights. This “Strato-Streak” engine –Pontiac’s second-ever V-8– out-muscled its predecessor to the tune of 173 hp/180 hp/200 hp (2-bbl. with manual transmission/with Hydra-Matic/4 bbl with Hydra-Matic), compared to the 1954 eight-cylinder top rating of 127 hp. There\'s the trademark “Silver Streaks” styling motif, which would disappear for the 1957 model year. New were the new wrap-around windshield and wide range of available colors, inside and out. Those Streaks decorated the hoods of an expanded lineup of Chieftain 860, Chieftain 870, and Star Chief models, as well as the stylish, late-introduction Star Chief Custom Safari two-door wagon. Engine: The 1955 Pontiacs introduced the Strato-Streak V-8 engine, which replaced the long-serving flathead straight-six and straight-eights. This new overhead-valve V-8 produced 173 hp (with a 2-barrel carburetor and manual transmission). Design: The 1955 Pontiacs featured two wide “Silver Streaks” running the length of the hood, a distinctive design element1. The hood ornament, affectionately known as the “Indian,” was made of amber plastic and lit up when the headlights were turned on. This beautiful classic has been meticulously maintained by the present owner. Clean, no rust and runs great. This Chieftain is a head-turner. Awesome color scheme and plenty of original manuals and paperwork with the car. Everything functioning properly except for radio and air conditioning. Gas gauge has to be approximated as well. Give Mike a call at: 973-768-6426 to see this fantastic Chieftain located in Randolph, NJ.
