Amazing 1959 Strato Chief survivor


I just realized I never showed pictures of this car here. I have known this Pontiac all my life, as it was local to where I grew up. This is the car that got me hooked to 59 Pontiacs as I was really impressed by it every time the owner took it out in town when I was a kid.

The story is that this car was never sold to the public, as this was kept by the owner of the Pontiac Buick dealership in Trois-Pistoles, Quebec, since new. It now belongs to the son of the man who had the dealership in the 50´s.

 

The car has very low original mileage (20k miles IIRC), was repainted once in the original colour, but otherwise is completely unrestored. Enjoy!

I'm thinking that interior is grey, which looks kind of blue-grey.  My '60 Bel Air had a similar coloured interior.  The blue looks to be more of a deep blue, IMHO.

The high torque decal was always used on trucks from about 1962 to about 1968.  does anyone know if that is the right decal for this car?  i am thinking not at all.

 Was wondering the same thing, but I believe the engine is unrestored. The 6cyl Canada only air cleaner decal is the original one for sure, as there are no repros, and it's a waterslide decal (I've seen it up close), so you can tell how clean and original this car is.. But the high torque decal, I cannot say.
