Sport Coupe
This car was actually owned by 'a little old lady' - in this case a school teacher from Michigan, who put only 36,000 miles on the car during her 38-year ownership.

It had a larger, more streamlined body, massive front fenders with built-in headlights and an 'alligator' type hood trimmed with three sets of slanting louvers. The Pontiac nameplate and Chevron emblem were carried on the Frank Hershey-designed 'Silver Streak' center rail that split the grille.

The exposed lower front door hinges, keyhole-type door handles, right-rear fender gas filler cap and more rounded rear deck. It came standard with safety roll front seat backs, new anti-skid tires, tilting and adjustable front seats and an improved safety shift gear control.

For its time, the 1940 Pontiac was an ideal car for a teacher. It was stylish, had improved safety features and was affordable - costing just over $820 new.
