1954 Pontiac Star Chief Description:

Over 40 years ago this gem was driven home to our garage from the shop which refurbished the engine to a working status. At that time, it was close to winter and the battery was moved to the basement and the car parked snuggly in the garage. Unfortunately, life events followed, and we did not have the opportunity to start it up again. It has never left our garage or has been fired up since that original point in time.

The interior and exterior are in excellent condition. The exterior is a two-tone paint. The upholstery was redone 40 years ago and is in great shape. We just freshened it up and installed all the interior parts to get it ready to be sold.

Look at the pictures to see the amazing details associated with this vintage automobile. Beautiful Chrome accents and vintage emblems on the hood and trunk.

Since we never drove it after it was parked the milage on the car indicates only 36169. It is hard to say if the odometer has turned. It was in storage when we purchased it long ago.

Many questions have been asked about starting the engine. If you know anything about a vehicle that has been stored for many years, it will require fluid changes including gas, oil, coolant, proper manual turning of the engine and review of brake and fuel lines.

We will not be starting the car prior to the sale. No modifications were made to the original engine. Again, this engine has not been started in over 40 years. That has been reflected in the price of this very nice vintage car. The structure of the car is excellent.

A sample of the Specifications are noted below from the original pamphlet which I have included as pictures for you to see.
