Car of the Week: 1958 Pontiac Chieftain

It really doesn’t take much examination to realize Paul Craddock’s 1958 Pontiac Chieftain is not your ordinary 1950s hobby car. With a paltry 2,549 miles on its odometer, the Starmist Silver sedan is certainly one of the lowest-mileage 1950s Pontiacs in the country, and it may well be the most authentic Chieftain in existence.

Car of the Week: 1957 Pontiac Bonneville

Almost 48 years after he bought it, Chuck Richardson is still driving his rare 1957 Pontiac Bonneville — rare because it was one of only 630 built for the model’s first year. And unusual because the cars only came as fuel-injected convertibles.

Car of the Week: 1972 Pontiac Grand Prix SSJ

Car of the Week: 1957 Pontiac Ambulance

Certainly, as 1957 Pontiacs go, it would be hard to find one much more unique than Dennis Statz’s eye-popping Star Chief ambulance. Not only is the car big and beautiful, it is a very low-mileage survivor, with a meager 13,500 ticks showing on the speedometer. The car started out life as a Star Chief four-door sedan and was turned into an ambulance by Superior Coachworks. It was ordered by the Detroit Diesel Allison Division to be a company ambulance, but it rarely saw use, and was eventually sold to an Indianapolis man in 1973 with only about 1,800 miles of use.

Car of the Week: 1957 Pontiac Bonneville (V-8)

Pontiac accomplished a lot when it unveiled the new fuel-injected Bonneville for 1957. Not only did the company have itself a beautiful luxury cruiser that could blast down the highway at 130 mph, but it managed to completely change how the car-buying public perceived the Pontiac nameplate.
