Description for Pontiac SILVER STREAK 1949

1949 Pontiac Chieftain Silver Streak
In 1949, ontiac introduced a restyled line up courtesy of designer Herman Kaiser with a lot of Harley Earl influence thrown in. The company released two models, he Streamliner and the Chieftain, nd both shared the same 120" wheelbase. The standard engine was the 239 CID six cylinder motor, ut the cream of the crop was the buttery smooth straight 8 engine,... dubbed the "Silver Streak." Both 3 speed automatic and manual transmissions could be had and the cars were available in the coupe, edan and four door.
This 1949 Pontiac Chieftain is a largely original survivor car that has only had two owners in its entire existence. The car has an older paint job with a lovely patina. This Chieftain has the Deluxe trim option as evidenced by the longer side spear and extra chrome body trim. The body is rust free and straight with excellent panel gaps. The interior is largely original sans some new seat upholstery and has been wonderfully kept. All of the instruments are in proper working order as are the signals, nd lights.
The car is mechanically right and has been cared for as needed. The 8-cylinder motor is so smooth, ou often forget it is running and the car drives out perfectly on the open road. The steering and brakes are spot on for the era, nd the car could take long cruises with ease. The vehicle had a recent tune up and is ready for the road.
For the Pontiac enthusiast, hese cars are sleepers in terms of valuation and represent a bargain in the current market.
