Hi I am selling my1955 PONTIAC STAR CHIEF CUSTOM CATALINA 2 door hardtop with the original 4 barrel carburetor. The car has the factory power steering and power brakes. Has a 3 speed hydramatic automatic transmission. Starts easily, drives, and shifts with no problems at all. Has new factory interior that includes the seats, headliner, door sills, and carpet. The same way it original came from the factory. Has four new big white wall Corkren radial tires over 1,000 spent on tires. Has the original hubcaps in great condition. New chrome on the original front and back bumper and much more, over 4,000 spent on re-chroming. Has matching numbers to the engine and transmission. I had the power brake booster and master cylinder rebuilt and now works like new. Current California registration and tittle are all up to date. All the glass is in great condition. Was painted last year to match the factory colors as close as possible. All the windows roll up and down. All exterior and interior lights work. Rust free, California car, and has been garaged all its life. You can go to the local car show and jaws will drop. I'm into this car over 30K but have a very reasonable reserve, my lost your gain.The car was a labor of love. If you have any question please feel free to contact me via Ebay email. Thank you and have a great day.  photo P1110634_zpsb5a4c6d4.jpg

Here are some pictures of the undercarriage because people have been asking me. They are a little dark but it shows there is no rust where the body meets the frame, engine, and tranny.
