  1. Selling 20ft. open car trailer by Featherlite. Aluminum construction, GVWR is 9,600lbs. Tandem axles with brakes at each wheel, removable fenders. EZ Lube axle bearings, self adjusting electric brakes, and LED lighting (all lights work). I purchased new and have put approximately 5,000 miles on the trailer. Trailer has been stored outside with tire covers. Includes following options: Spare Tire and Mount 15" Aluminum Rims (including spare) Locking Tool Box The trailer is located in Coralville, Iowa and the price is $7,500.
  2. Listing our 1956 Pontiac Chieftain 4-Door Station Wagon for sale. Purchased in Spring of 2013 from a dealer in Chicago who acquired it from an estate in Florida. It is an older restoration which shows well but it is not perfect and we drive it often except over the winter. The color combo is black over red which is a correct color combination but not the original color of gray over black. Interior seats are black & white vinyl with a white dash and headliner. Carpet is black. The car has radial whitewall tires including the spare and we added a Vintage Air Mark IV under the center dash so it looks like an appropriate add-on and keeps things cool on those hot & humid summer days. Car runs well, starts right up and will take you wherever you need to go. When was the last time you saw a Pontiac 4-Door wagon especially in this color combo? We gets lots of attention anywhere we go, it was a hit in 2016 when we did part of Route 66. I can take additional pictures for those who are interested. Sadly we need to part ways with the car due to career changes occurring in our lives. The car is located in Coralville, Iowa and the price is $33,000.
  3. K = Kansas City Assembly Plant 8 = 8-cylinder 2 = Should be Z for 1954 A = Hydramatic (1954 model 28) 5639 = serial number
  4. This car is still available. The 1941 Pontiac Coupe has sold.
  5. Only issue is that there is an exhaust leak from the manifold, I haven't found anyone locally that is equipped for this kind of work.
  6. Only issue is that I add a quart of oil with every fill-up which isn't an problem to me at this time. I haven't gotten anyone to look into the motor but if I went that route then the asking price would go up...
  7. Thanks for the replies. I've had some inquires on both but nothing more yet. Priced fairly as we want to thin out the fleet and free up some garage space. I might try to get more pictures posted this weekend.

  10. Correct, there was no external oil filter offered from the factory. There was an internal oil cleaner (filter) at that time and it was designed to be cleaned at 100,000 miles or whenever the oil pan was dropped. Information from my 1941/42 manual.
  11. Here are two that I use quite a bit for Pontiac specific parts to keep my Pontiac fleet going: California Pontiac Restoration 877-504-8124 cpr@dcninternet.net Kurt Kelsey 641-648-9086 kelsey@prairieinet.net Many of the chassis items are standard GM though and can be found through your local parts store or online. A GM interchange manual may be of help as well to cross reference. Also if you are a member of AACA then look at the Oakland-Pontiac Worldwide Chapter as they are for 1958 and older Pontiacs. http://www.oaklandpontiacworldwide.com/ It is great to see you save the car, get it on the road and enjoy it.
  12. P8KB = 1942 Streamliner 8-cylinder built in Pontiac, MI 4701 = Production or Serial Number (there were 21,927 of the Streamliner 8's built) 42-2607 = 1942 Sedan Coupe - standard trim & finish. (if there was a "D" at the end then it would the Chieftain or Deluxe trim & finish) Body No. 3023 = ?? Trim No. 150 = ?? Paint No. 14 = two tone paint, Lucian Gray Upper, Beverly Gray Metallic Lower Top 8 = ?? Accessories AK = ?? I do not have a 1942 specific book to decode the rest.
  13. Have you tried Kurt Kelsey? He has large selection of NOS parts. Antique Pontiac Parts 14083 P Ave., Iowa Falls, IA 50126-8686 (641) 648-9086 kelsey@prairieinet.net
  14. For the Pontiac: Style 42-2511 = 6-cylinder Torpedo (model) two door sedan, 1942 model year I can't quite make out the number on the tag for color but here is a link http://www.earlytimeschapter.org/42colorchart.html P = Pontiac, MI 6 = Six cylinder I would need to look at my reference books for the rest, I will try to do that this weekend.
  15. Your welcome. Keeping them for your collection sounds like a great plan as I would do the same. They are nice emblems to have, somewhat rare but not worth a lot at the end of the day to most people.
  16. As far as value, I'm sure there are others who can probably give a better estimate than I can but the various Pontiac newsletter classifieds show 1950's NOS trim or emblems going for around $40. Other than pitting your emblems appear to be in good condition (not broken and studs intact) so they are candidates for restoring. I do not know of anyone at the moment who is looking for those specific emblems but if you are interested in selling and would like I can have an ad put into the Early Times Chapter newsletter of POCI or the Oakland-Pontiac Worldwide Chapter newsletter of AACA. I personally think the emblems would look nice cleaned up and attached to wooden plaques for display but then again I do not have a car that needs these emblems. The car pictured is a little rough but there is quite a bit of salvageable parts.
