Hi. I just registered and I don't Know if this is the same place where I was. I have a '50 Pontiac 4 door that I'm restoring. I'm glad to have some company to discuss things.

You're at the right place Christopher. Sounds like an interesting car you've got there. Another place to get a lot of information about your car is through the Pontiac-Oakland Club International (POCI) and its Early Times Chapter (www.earlytimeschapter.org). Good luck restoring it.

'48 here. Hi guys I just picked up a 1950 fastback too. Wow! Popular find all of a sudden.I was looking for a parts car for my 48 (streamliner)when into the junkyard this week came this 1950 Pontiac Streamliner with 57,000 miles on the 6 cylinder. I couldn't let it go to the crusher so I grabbed it for a parts car for the '48 4door. I will have pictures for both cars up tomorrow. It sure is nice to see all the chit chat about the 50 silverstreaks and I'm looking forward to chatting with you guys somemore soon. Thanks, Doug in CT.

It needs total restoration. The car has many options but it all needs work. It has the straight 8 and manual trans. fog lamps , fender skirts,spot light,bumper wraparounds,dual cigarette lighters,under hood and trunk lites,lighted hood ornament,under seat heater and radio but it all needs to be restored. It also has whats left of mud flaps and curb feelers too. The sun visor was on it at one time but is long gone.

hi, it not possible to tell you how many of just one body style that pontiac made before 1961, all the records were loss in a building fire a long time ago. i can break it down by 6 or 8 cylinder engine, standard or hydra-matic transmission, there were 32,572 1950's pontiac built at the framingham assembly plant, so your car was built during the first three months of production, not a late car. the eight cylinder pontiacs that year outsold the six cylinder pontiacs by almost 3 to 1. charles coker, 1953 pontiac tech advisor.

we do know how sedan deliveries were made, commerical vehicle

we do know that only 630 1957 pontiac fuel injection bonnevilles were made, one per dealership

Hey christopher I have a silver streak business man coupe I am restoring I am in the process of switching over to 12 volt system I found a guy who is converting my generator to a altinator honestly he explained the whole process and now I am eliminating unnecessary wires. The guy is actually taking the generator core out using the same casing and exterior parts and stuffing an altinator inside so it looks like a generator but is really running a12 v system now I can add other electrical components if need or want

Just remember restoring means back to original, 12 volts and a alternator makes your car a modified car. That will change your antique insurance ( if you have that type of insurance ), and will if you ever show your car put you in with all the modified cars.

Always try to do a resto using original parts… most aftermarket stuff is cheap off shore junk.

What do you need?
