Recently inherited, this 1929 Pontiac Big 6 Chief 2 door coupe was a great runner, but has apparently sat for quite a while now. The seller is looking to unload it quick and had this car professionally appraised. Although appraised at $9,300, the seller is looking to unload this Pontiac for $8,500. Find it here on craigslist out of Grass Valley, California. Thanks to Pat L for the submission!
Although the pictures are actually images of photographs, the car looks like a nice example. The paint is shiny, although there is a fair amount of dust. The body work appears to be straight, but it is difficult to tell if it is a repaint. Due to the shine, I am leaning toward this one has been repainted. Although this once was a sweet driver, this Pontiac is going to need some attention to be a road goer once again. Despite the lack of engine photos and interior photos, I would assume each of those areas to be in similar condition to the exterior.
These older Pontiacs were more refined in some of their design features compared to other cars of the time. Having such features as rubber frame insulators, improved shock absorbers, and mechanical brakes at all 4 corners. Although not a lot of information is given on this Pontiac, it is a nice condition car that is uncommon now in a world full of Ford Model A’s and T’s. Do you think this Pontiac is a survivor, or a restovivor?
