On the popularity scale of real US car fans, the classics from the 1950s are nowhere near as high as the muscle cars from the 1970s. This is largely due to the fact that the automobiles from the 50s have significantly less power and were largely not equipped with large-volume V8 supercharged engines. But in terms of things Tuning The USA is known to be the land of unlimited possibilities, which is why there are various resourceful tuners who create real cream pieces from the often misunderstood models of the late 1950s. It almost doesn't matter which US brand it is, because the clever screwdrivers conjure up unique features from all models of this era Restomod projects. Now we want you a 1956 Pontiac Star Chief imagine working from scratch restauriert, and in which every small screw and every millimeter of the sheet metal has been renewed.

The Rims des Pontiacs come from the company EVOD, and measure 20 × 9 inches on the front axle, while 22 × 12 inch rims are mounted on the rear axle. The rims are gigantic for a Restomod, and they ensure that the Pontiac has a unique look. Of course, the vehicle was too newly painted, and we think that the dark shade of blue looks great on him. With this 1956 Pontiac, you will undoubtedly be an absolute eye-catcher at every US car meeting and will certainly be immediately addressed by the audience about your car.

The interior has been restored in a contemporary way.

There are no gimmicks in the cockpit, such as digital instruments or a large monitor, but the classic ambience has been retained to guarantee an authentic driving experience.

A V8 heart beats under the bonnet.

Conclusion on the Pontiac "The Chief" from 1956:

A mad project that you definitely can't tell how valuable it really is and how many hours of work it went into. The road to this restomod was probably a long and rocky path, which is why the immensely high price that is set for the vehicle is, in our opinion, justified.
