This car has won several awards over the years. The following photos show the car in the early-mid 1980s during restoration work. Although the Laurentian appears very similar in terms of styling. trim. and other features to the United States' produced Pontiacs. they actually had more in common with the full sized Chevrolet models. The Laurentian was available in all of the body styles Chevrolet's Bel Air was including hardtop coupe. sedan. and convertible models. The '55 Laurentian & '55 Bel Air actually shared the same structural framework. This is why the Laurentian is much shorter than it's U. S. counterpart. the Pontiac Star Chief. The exterior showcases a repaint of the correct Matador Red & White finish. The paint and body are in very good condition throughout with some minor imperfections. The distinctive Pontiac brightwork is in great shape and intact front to back. The wheels of choice are the factory steel wheels. finished in Matador red & fitted with B. F.
