  1. Trayliner for battery

    You can buy a new tray for $40.
  2. 1958 - just bought it !

    Your best bet is a complete running parts car. That way you will have everything you need and know what needs to be fixed before the transplant. You might get lucky and find one with power steering which is darn nice to have on a '58. Good luck!
  3. N.O.S. 1941 pontiac front fender, and rear fender

    Front is for a 25 series. Rear is either 26 or 29 as there are holes for mouldings and 25 series did not have mouldings. Any numbers written on the inside ?
  4. 1929 Pontiac oil leak

    My parts book shows 2 wooden wedge blocks in both the front and rear main bearings. I do have some of these blocks NOS @ $4 each. Call me if you want to order them. Kurt 641-648-9086 Thanks

    There are wooden wedges in the crankshaft bearing cap. Do they have them in place ?
  6. N.O.S. 1941 pontiac front fender, and rear fender

    FYI: Pontiac used three different bodies in 1941 so just because it is a 1941 Pontiac fender does not mean it fits all of them. Either check the part number and style number in a Pontiac parts book or do some serious measuring to be sure which model they fit.

    .My '56 still has the grease pencil writing on the firewall also.
  11. 1956 Pontiac Chieftain Garage Find

    In 1956 Pontiac made the Star Chief which was the top of the line, then they made the Chieftain 860 and the Chieftain 870. The 860 was pretty bare bones and the 870 which yours is had more chrome and deluxe features like the Deluxe steering wheel and the hooded tail light bezels the same as the Star Chief. The D after the style number means it is an 870. You should rebuild the fuel pump with today's materials that are not affected by ethanol. I have these kits available for $69.50. Also, I would recommend joining POCI, the national Pontiac club. They have a great monthly magazine, many local chapters, tech advisors etc. Bring this car back to life and you can drive it anywhere with no problem keeping up with the traffic.

    Looks like a nice car, however the seats are not original. That black vinyl is not correct. Also, Gulf tires were never original equipment tires. Looks like a rare find, but not quite as original as it appears. Also, please look at the style number on the firewall and let us know if it is a 56-2737 or a 56-2737D.
