i was wondering why the extra lights below the original '53-'54 pontiac chieftain taillights/turn signal lights ? is it required for cars down under to have the extra lights ?. please post a interior picture of your chieftain. charles coker, 1953 pontiac tech advisor.

Hello Charles, the extra indicator lights were installed by the previous owner, and to my knowledge were required so as to comply with the licensing / registration / roadworthiness requirements, hence the amber lenses also. Thats best guess as the rules do change from state to state and for Classic Cars also......

I only have one pic of the interios and its not a very good one but here it is..........post-97131-143142254081_thumb.jpg

Hi all,

First post after lurking around a bit. I think this is a good way to introduce me as a new member by posting some photos of my 1947 Streamliner. When I bought this true survivor it had the matching six in it, but as the oil ran thru the engine and I happened to stumble upon a 268", I took the liberty to switch engine. I have the six still standing in my shop, and who knows, if I can get my hands on an overhaul kit without having to pay shipping from U.S to Sweden there is a good chance it can find the way back in under the hood. For the moment I'm just enjoying the smooth ride and the comfort, but there is some work to do with the body and replace most of the rubber arond the doors and windows. It came to Sweden in 2008 from Colorado, it seems to have been owned by one person for a long time; I have insurance papers and receipts fro 1963 and forward.

1954 Pontiac Chieftain Landau built by Superior Coach Mfg. in Mississippi. # 206 of 207 coaches made in that year. Still has the original 268 straight 8 and 3 on the tree standard trans. This car had sat in a junkyard for 17 yrs when I bought it. No power steering, no power brakes, a real bugger to park hehe.
