Condition is 1

290hp 374 cu. in. triple carbureted overhead valve V8 engine with automatic transmission, independent front suspension, live rear axle and four-wheel power brakes. Wheelbase: 124"

The example offered here has benefited from a comprehensive professional body-off rotisserie restoration to show standards. The Pontiac is a very rare and correct matching numbers car retaining the original 347 cubic inch tri-power engine. It is finished in the beautiful colour scheme of Titan Red with Cordoba red side panel spears with the paint in exceptional overall condition showing virtually no wear whatsoever. The lavish interior is finished in white and red and along with a white convertible top. An unusual feature is the number of factory options; the car is equipped with 4-speed automatic transmission, stainless steel exhaust and brake lines, power steering and brakes, power windows, power antenna, tinted windshield and side glass with correct date codes, AM/FM Wonderbar radio, quartz clock and the extremely rare heater box that is mounted under the driver‟s seat and ivory steering wheel. The car is also equipped with a continental kit. Very few fifties cars have been restored to the standard of the example offered here – due, no doubt, to the staggering costs involved.

Asking price is $115,000.00 obo

Car is located in CA. Contact Kelly Dietrick at 412-422-8923 or kelly@classictag.net

hello, a few errors in your listing, the 1957 pontiac carburation shown is the factory four barrel set up - no tri-power on this car, the pontiac underseat heater is so far from being rare, every pontiac built with a heater ordered from the 1940's all the way to 1957 had the underseat heater. it's rare when you find a heater delete pontiac. the following options you state as being factory options, are in fact not factory, am/fm radio, stainless steel exhaust, stainless steel brake lines, quartz clock. now maybe the radio is a wonder bar radio, but it would still be just am, no fm. stainless steel exhaust, no such option, the same for stainless steel brake lines, no such option, quartz clock, there were no quartz clocks in 1957. charles coker, 1953 pontiac tech advisor.
