Pontiac: A Brief History

Pontiac Streamliner
Introduced by GM in 1926 as a 'companion' car to the Oakland, Pontiac replaced that marque in the automaker's lineup starting in 1932.Pontiac Streamliner
After a shaky start as a stand-alone badge (this being the height of the Depression) Pontiac began to hit its stride in the mid-'30s when it gained its own personality, thanks to the addition of the famous 'silver streak' trim stretching from the cowl to the bottom of the radiator.

Pontiac Streamliner
Pontiac continued to produce solid, mid-priced cars in both six- and eight-cylinder models through the 1930s and into the early 1940s, until war production brought the assembly line to a halt, as it did with the rest of the Ú.S. auto industry.


Pontiac StreamlinerIn 1946, a face-lifted Pontiac emerged, looking much like its predecessor except for a more lavish use of chrome trim. Additional mild face-lifts followed for 1947 and 1948 with the '48s carrying the most elaborate grille treatment yet. Buyers must have liked what they saw because Pontiac racked up record sales of 235,500 cars for that year.

The 1948 Pontiacs
Pontiac offered four different series of cars in 1948: the Torpedo Six, on a 119 inch wheelbase; the Streamliner Six, on the larger 122 inch wheelbase; the Torpedo Eight, again on the 119 inch wheelbase; and the Streamliner Eight on the bigger wheelbase. DeLuxe station wagons in six- and eight-passenger models were available only the Streamliner series and at $2,490 were the most expensive Pontiacs for that year.

This Car
A scarce sight even when new, this 'woody' has some outstanding attributes, including its remarkable-originality. Únlike many wood-bodied cars, this one has been conscientiously maintained and preserved rather than restored. The result is a car with original, untouched wood throughout that still shows very well throughout.


A Pontiac woody was never a high-production vehicle. Most of the few that were built were on the six-cylinder chassis. This car is one of a handful built on the eight-cylinder chassis, and is also fitted from new with a Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, which is rare on any car from 1948, not to mention a woody wagon.

It was repainted to a high standard in correct medium gray some time ago.
