317 CID Strato-Streak V8 - 4BBL - Hydra-Matic - P.S. - P.B. - P.Top - Frame-Off

This 1956 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible underwent a complete frame-off restoration and is an absolutely exceptional, investment-grade example. The Star Chiefs were Pontiac's premium model back in 1956 and were distinguished by the tapered diagonal accent slash moldings on the front doors. Powering this beautiful Pontiac is a 317 Cubic Inch Strato-Streak V8 Engine with a single 4 barrel carburetor which is believed to push out 225 horsepower. Driving this Star Chief is easy with a smooth shifting Hydra-Matic Automatic Transmission that is mated to the Strato-Streak 317 V8. Dual through-through bumper exhaust give a really nice sound to the 317 V8 motor. This classic Pontiac convertible is equipped with all of the most desirable options! Factory power steering, which was a $108 option back in 1956, makes for a much more enjoyable drive. This Star Chief also has factory power brakes, which cost the original buyer a whopping $38 in 1956. Both dual side-mounted spotlights work great and are a nice add-on for this 50s cruiser. The white vinyl power convertible and matching boot look like they're brand new, and the power convertible top goes up and down with ease. The exterior on this Star Chief Convertible is absolutely stunning, having been refinished in its original colors of Bolero Red and Nimbus Gray. Wide Whitewall Bias-Ply tires with the Pontiac Wire Hubcaps give this Star Chief a gorgeous look from any angle. The exterior chrome and brightwork is in exceptional condition. This Star Chief is also equipped with a rear-mounted Continental Kit, completing the elegant exterior appearance of this car. The interior on this Star Chief Convertible is magnificent! The front and rear bench seats have been reupholstered in their original colors and material, Red and Ivory Vinyl. The front split bench is also a 6 way power adjustable seat, which was $93 option when this car was ordered new from the factory. The dash, door panels, and steering wheel are dazzling, perhaps appearing better than new. This Star Chief is equipped with a speedometer, battery gauge, water temperature gauge, oil pressure gauge, and, of course, a gas gauge. A wonderbar radio and electric clock are also incorporated into the stock dash. The power windows on this '56 Star Chief work great and are lightning fast. If you're looking for one of, if not, the nicest premium Pontiac convertibles currently on the market, we've got this 1956 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible here at Ellingson Motorcars in Rogers, Minnesota.
