The V-8 offered an exciting power alternative to the standard inline-6, and, in 1957, Pontiac would popularize Tri-Power carburetion with a larger 347 CI V-8 engine, the combination of which would create a whopping 290 HP—those wanting more could order the NASCAR package, which would produce a stunning 317 HP, but they were known to be a bit finicky and demanded a little more maintenance than the average buyer, even one interested in high performance, would be interested in. Chevrolet outsold Pontiac, largely because of the lower cost of entry and simple brand popularity, today making the Pontiac Chieftain a unique car to own and causing many people to do doubletakes wondering what it is.
This mildly customized 1957 Chieftain is presented in a gorgeous shade of Black Cherry Metallic Pearl with a white leather interior detailed in matching Dark Cherry accents. The subject of a frame-off nut-and-bolt restoration completed in 2009, the body was stripped to bare metal, primed, sealed and sprayed with two-stage paint. The chrome was triple plated while the stainless was polished to provide a high-quality lustrous shine that matched the rest of the car. Powered by a rebuilt and balanced 347 CI V-8 engine fed by the Tri-Power carburetion, the original Hydra-Matic transmission sends the power down the line to the rear wheels. The fuel tank filler neck was rerouted to the trunk for a cleaner look. Drivers will love the Vintage Air conditioning and power brakes with front discs while a 100-amp alternator easily powers the accessories like the Wonderbar Radio. Rolling on white-stripe tires and chrome wire wheels, the overall look is remarkable, subtle, intriguing and rare.
