1958 Pontiac Chieftain

1958 Pontiac Chieftain

This is my 1958 Pontiac Chieftain Catalina Coupe. Originally this was my Dad’s car (My father gave me the car after having health issues and could no longer drive) and I am finishing up some minor restoration. This ol’ gal is powered by a Tri-power 370 cubic inch engine and is 90% complete with only 54K original miles. What a joy to drive.

    My first car,bought used, was a ’58 Chieftain, ordered from the factory sans chrome. When I bought it,64 GTO 389 Tri-power, 4-speed had been installed. Sleeper? YUP!

    Gorgeous and rare Pontiac. 50’s GM Vehicles were real works of art.

    My biggest regret in life was in 1968 giving my 58 Bonny convert with rare fuel injection to my kid sister when I went to Vietnam. i thought I would get it back when I got home, but she got married and her husband talked her into trading it for a new Mercury. I almost cry when I see one like yours.
