1959 Pontiac Star Chief Review
My First Car, And I'll Never Give It Up. — Bought this car when I was in high school and opted to not drive in the winters. The interior is falling apart but mechanically it's a beast. 389ci engine with Tri Power carb setup. Puts out about 320hp, that will drastically increase upon rebuild. I recently replaced the original Hydramatic transmission with a TH350.
Pros: Looks Great, Horsepower, Unique
Cons: I need to get it restored
