Hello all, here's my 1951 Chieftain 4 door 6 cyl. Just got it about 3 months ago. 77k original miles. Originally a PA car. Purchased from elderly gentleman near Buffalo, it was garaged every winter. Just put new Cokers on it :). Loving it!!!

WOW! That looks great! Did you paint it yourself?

No, thats one thing I have never tried. The paint shop had the car for about 3 weeks, it required a few smal rust repairs, and they were very small.

Certainly not a Concours paint job at mega expense, but a very good job, at an even better price, and one where I am happy to drive the car as often as possible without worry of damage.

This moves the car from the 20 foot category back to a close inspection one.

Only a couple of people have seen the car at present and they are all impressed with the job.

It is back to me though to refit all the trim. Nearly completed now, just the Continental Kit to refit now. :)

Technically, the car won't be mine until Friday, but here is a shot of 'Mildred', my 1937 Pontiac 6 Touring Sedan. The car is in excellent condition, and drives great. The interior has been done in period-correct style and fabric, and the paint is one of the available 1937 colors. She has been an AACA Driver Participation car with the current owners, but I think she can do well in class juding with a bit more work. However, the important thing is she will be a wonderful tour car - I don't own a trailer. It will be great to have a Pre-War car again!

Here's my new project, 1951 Chieftain 2-door. I plan to make this my daily driver, mechanically sound and safe for my family. Cosmetically I'm planning to rehab the interior and leave the outside as-is. Brakes, motor, body are generally OK. Hydramatic shifts through the first three gears OK, though it makes a lot more interesting noises than I think it probably should. I haven't driven it fast. Carb needs a rebuild. I'm working on some vapor lock or fuel supply issue(s) at the moment. Interior is pretty thrashed.

post-61302-143139187006_thumb.jpg A 1954 Pontiac Starchief Deluxe, purchased in 1975 from a local junkyard owners private stash for the sum of $250.00. It sat in storage for the next 22 years till every new piece of N.O.S. stainless, chrome ornaments and all the plastic emblems were found . I think the only parts used over after plating were the bumpers. The complete grill was NOS but the chrome finishes didn't match so we had a top of the line chromeplater redo all of the pieces to match. It got painted in single stage urethane and buffed to a high gloss finish. In the year 2000 it was entered in the AACA show in Winchester, VA. and won a first junior award. In Oct. at Hershey it was sold. It was one of the better cars that I have restored, I was proud of it.

hi kevin, there wasn't a pontiac assembly plant in stockton, ca., there was one in south gate, ca., that's where all the pontiacs were built in california. my 1953 custom catalina was built there too. 1951 pontiacs are a real nice car to have, being it was pontiac's 25th year. charles coker, 1953 pontiac tech advisor.

hi, last monday, i got the 1950's oldsmobile 98 wheels back from being sandblasted and powdercoated, this is the first time i ever had something powdercoated, the wheels turn out beautiful, i had my front brake drums sandblasted and powdercoated in glossy black. the color for the wheels is very very close to the 1953 pontiac color of laurel green, which is the color of my car's top or roof. correctly the wheels should be milano ivory like the body, but i thought with the laurel green, a nice contrast would look better. the wire wheel hubcaps are my idea also, a combination of 1953 oldsmobile wire wheel hubcaps and 1951 to 1953 pontiac rear fender indian chief emblems, matching perfectly with the car's nos rear fender emblems. charles coker, 1953 pontiac tech advisor.
