A six with a 3 speed, that is rare!  Never saw one with a six.

That's a lot of metal to move with a six. Odd subject for a restoration, too. Low-value body style with an insufficient motor.

I bet it is. Looks like a Chevy Steering wheel.  Alot of the Canadian ones had Chevy Chassis and Drivetrains. Had a 68 Pontiac  Strato Chief.  It had a Chevy 6 with a powerglide.  Surprisingly being geared right it had no problem moving along down the road.

Yes definitely Canadian if it is the original engine . The only engine that came with a 1958 Pontiac is the 370 v 8 . You could get different horsepower / carb options

A Strato Chief is a Canadian Pontiac product built on Oshawa Ontario using a Chevy chassis and running gear.

I would of matched the seat color to the interior but if it has a 235 it will ride nicely with the 3 on the tree.

If it's the original engine it will be the 261 c.i. one. Same block, different bore & stroke to keep the upscale appearance of Pontiac vs. Chevrolet.

So by that description it's a 'Cheviac'!

Not at all. It's a Canadian built Pontiac. These were sold all over the British Commonwealth, Europe, South Africa and more.

Due to export laws and tariffs is the reason for this.

Most Canadian Pontiac enthusiasts consider the term "Cheviac" derogatory. From 1981 on all Pontiac's regardless of where they were built have Chevrolet engines. Starting in 76 Oldsmobile, Buick and Pontiac were built with some Chevrolet engines. Note that was the years (late 76-77) all GM's engines were painted corporate Blue and a disclaimer note added to all the brochures.
