Hailed by GM as a “Masterpiece” when first introduced to the public, this car was a luxury vehicle that stood apart from the rest. This car has beautiful looks even by today's standards. You could park one of GM's masterpieces in your garage.
According to the original Bill of Sale, this Star Chief was originally sold on April 28, 1954 by Valley Pontiac of Middleburg, New York. The selling price was $3,360, which was a good chunk of change back then. The car is still finished in the original color of Coral Red, which paired with the Salmon interior make this car pretty stunning. Add the fact that the car also has a white roof, a bunch of chrome trim, chrome spotlights, the optional “appearance group” trim, and white walls, the exterior of the car is in keeping with the “masterpiece” advertising from GM. One really cool highlight of the exterior, which we understand is hard to find in nice condition, is the Chief Pontiac amber hood ornament that lights up.
Inside the car is luxurious and features chrome trim, with the dashboard featuring the speedometer framed in textured aluminum trim and a large chrome vent centered in the dash. The seats and door panels are trimmed in a two tone color scheme of cream and salmon and show well. The front seats were recovered in the past few years, while the backseat upholstery looks to be original. Behind the big steering wheel is the place to be to experience the smooth Straight-8 engine that is under the hood. The Pontiac straight 8 engines are extremely smooth when running, so smooth in fact that you may not think it is running. The beautiful exterior styling, luxurious interior, and smooth delivery of power will help send you down the boulevard in comfort and style. Take a close look at this stunning Star Chief, with a car like this, you could park a GM “Masterpiece” in your garage.
