Sold for $45,000 at 2014 Motor City Auction by RM Auctions.
The 1955 Pontiac received significant change - more changes than any model since the Pontiac had first been introduced in 1926, as it had a reported 109 new features and three new bodies. The Star Chief, which rode on a frame that was 11-inches longer than other models, was the top-of-the-line model. It was powered by the 287 cubic0inch 'Strato Streak' V8 engine which was smaller, more rigid, and more suited for the higher compression ratios that were coming into use after World War II. The 'Strato Streak' produced 180 horsepower and could carry the car upwards of 90 mph.

The Star Chief Convertible played a starring role in several episodes of the classic television series 'I Love Lucy,' in which one of the cars was driven cross-country by the Ricardos and the Mertzes in their move from New York to Hollywood.

This convertible has been in the current ownership for nearly a quarter-century. It was acquired in 1990 and has recorded under 80,000 miles from new. It has an automatic transmission, an AM radio, and a power-operated black acrylic top with a cloth boot. Several years ago, it was given a cosmetic restoration and is now finished in Bolero Red and Raven Black, its original color combination. There is vinyl upholstery and much of the chrome is believed to be original. The trunk houses a full, correct spare.
