The eight-cylinder engine was discontinued after the 1936 model year, and the eight-cylinder Deluxe Cabriolet was dropped from the Pontiac model catalog in April of 1936. There were about 2000 such cars produced, of which the majority were built by GM Canada.
This Deluxe Eight Cabriolet was given a restoration, bringing it back to its original condition. According to records, there are just two examples of the Deluxe Eight Cabriolet left in existence.
The 232.3 cubic-inch L-head eight-cylinder engine with the Carter one-barrel carburetor is capable of producing nearly 90 horsepower. There is a three-speed synchromesh gearbox and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. The car has earned 'VMCCA Gold' status with 97.5 out of 100 possible points.
In 2010, the car was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $50,000-$70,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $75,900 including buyer's premium.
