1937 Pontiac Deluxe Series 26 Six news, pictures, specifications, and information
 
In 1937, this was called 'America's Finest Low Priced Car.' It is one of General Motors' first all-steel-construced car designs. Meticulously restored to showroom condition, this very car was featured in the February, 2005 issue of Hemmings Classic Car Magazine. It has won multiple awards. Not counting the cost of the car itself, the new buyer will get receipts for over $43,000 spent to bring this car to the show condition you see it in today. Also included are several ORIGINAL brochures and ads from the 1937 era, and the Hemmings Classic Car magazine which featured the car. Owner's manual too! The car came wîth options such as De Luxe heater, defroster, radio, clock (that still works!) dual horns, banjo §teering wheel and safety glass. The engine is a 222.7 cubic inch straight six wîth a cast iron block and head. It's rated at a whopping 85 horsepower at 3,520 rpm and is stock wîth solid lifters.

Coupe
 
This 1937 Pontiac Silver Streak Business Coupe features a flathead six-cylinder engine. The 'Silver Streak' theme is carried out by the wide chrome trim strip on the top of the hood and echoes in the finer horizontal chrome strips on either side of the hood. Pontiac carried the 'Silver Streak' theme well into the 1950's. The Silver Streak cars were marketed as economical drivers stressing gas mileage and utility.

The owner completed a frame-up restoration in 2006 and the automobile is painted its original maroon color. You will notice jump seats behind the front seat that are used to accommodate additional passengers or folded away for extra storage.

The 1937 Pontiac was distinguished from previous models by its exterior design. The new style included a one-piece turret top body on a five-inch longer chassis, heightened hoodline and narrower radiator grille with an Indian head mascot.

A wider, 39-degree slanted windshield, longer headlamp buckets, and new, split, pear shaped one-piece fenders gave the 1937 Pontiac a more modern look. The side grilles were also re-designed, having horizontal chrome bars in four segments on the bottom and a 'signature' narrow top section that ran the length of the hood - the 'Silver Streak.'

The Silver Streak moldings accented the 1937 Pontiac in a waterfall fashion, running down the hood and over the grille. These moldings became a trademark of Pontiac for more than 20 years. 1937 marked Pontiac's best sales year to date.
