Description
Take some time to dig into the details of this 1956 Pontiac Star Chief Convertible. It has V8 power, classic distinction, and a terrific color combo inside and out that are ideal for a droptop like this.


A convertible like this makes an instant impression. It was restored in a two-tone Orange Sherbet and Ivory that has a hint of metallic element. So you're going to love the way the colors radiate every time you take this classic to the ice cream shop. A thoughtful two-tone is just .....
the cornerstone of a great 1950s classic, and this is an ideal year to own a Pontiac. They were beginning their performance stride with a new V8, and 1956 was the final year for the now-iconic Sliver Streak hood design. This styling touch was really done with an artist's eye for its final year. After all, you have the bright ribbed strips boldly on the hood up front, and in the rear, they are expertly integrated into the tailfin's lines. Plus, you can tell Pontiac's stylists took plenty of time with the intricate design on the bumpers, wraparound taillight trim, and full-length side trim that separates the two-tone. So it's great to see it all so complete and shining today. And more than just look attractive, you'll notice by the way the doors close with authority and the hood lines up nicely that they spent time investing in the fundamentals on this Pontiac.


With the touch of a button the white convertible top powers down to reveal a similar orange and cream two-tone of the exterior. So when everything coordinates so well inside and out (right down to the convertible boot,) you know this is the kind of car you'll cruise with pride. The whole presentation has been about carefully giving you classic looks with practical appeal. For example, the seats, door panels, and carpeting all have the look of 1950s style, but they feel fresh from a solid investment. Even the trunk has a vintage style, but underneath the carpeting is modern Dynamat insulation. You'll love slipping behind the artful classic steering wheel and gazing at all the classic brightwork on the dash. But if you look closely, you'll also see that the radio is a retro-style unit that's a modern AM/FM digital tuner. So you even get to choose your favorite driving tunes in this very vintage ride.


The engine bay continues the attitude of original-style with all the right upgrades. Pontiac was just beginning its new V8 era in '56, and so it's great to have a correct 316 cubic-inch motor under the hood. You can tell there has been a solid investment here by the clean color-matched inner fenders and the bold blue presentation of the motor. And while this is show-ready, they also made sure this is a true driver with great upgrades like the alternator and aluminum radiator. So it fires up readily, runs strong, and makes a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a great upgrade for easy cruising, and those Coker whitewalls have an excellent tread to take you for many miles.


Beauty and distinction come together in a terrific classic V8 convertible. So you know this deal won't stay with us long. Call today!!!
