347 CID Strato-Streak V8 - 2BBL - Hydra-Matic Automatic - P.Top - 1 of 19,762

This 1955 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible is a beautifully restored, 50s cruiser that was the top of the line model for Pontiac back in '55. When the Star Chief initially debuted in 1954, it was Pontiac's prestige model sitting atop of the Pontiac passenger car hierarchy and was equipped with Pontiac's straight 8 engine. Introduced to the public in mid-October 1954, the new Star Chiefs featured a brand new design as well as a new Overhead Valve V8 engine. The overhead valve design was a first for the GM marque though Pontiac did equip some of its models with flathead V8s in 1932. The new-look '55 Star Chiefs were 11 inches longer than its predecessor and featured a flatter looking hood along with additional trim and moldings, including three new star emblems on the front fenders and doors as well as a light up "Indian Chief" hood ornament. This particular Star Chief Convertible comes to us from a collector who owned and cared the car for nearly 20 years. Powering this '55 Star Chief is an upgraded 347 Cubic Inch V8 engine paired with a single 2 barrel carburetor. The NOM 347 V8 is hooked up to a Hydra-Matic Automatic Transmission ensuring that anybody can take this Pontiac convertible for a spin around the block. Dual exhaust gives this 55 Pontiac a nice throaty sound. The exterior has been beautifully refinished in Raven Black paint which gives the car a truly elegant look. The black cloth power convertible top is in fantastic condition and it goes up and down with the simple push of a button. Riding on Wide Whitewall Radial tires with Wire Basket Wheel Covers, this '55 Pontiac has a great look and even better ride. This 1955 Star Chief is nicely accessorized with the addition of a driver's side spotlight and rear fender skirts. The interior on this classic Pontiac is superb! The front and rear bench seats have been correctly reupholstered in Black and Ivory vinyl. The dash, door panels and steering wheel all appear to be in their stock configuration as well. The black painted dash is equipped with a 120 MPH speedometer, battery gauge, water temperature gauge, oil pressure gauge, and fuel gauge, along with a push-button AM radio and clock. Whether you're looking to add to your existing classic Pontiac collection or you're buying your first classic car, this 1955 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible would make an excellent choice.
