  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

This is a tough one. I am not aware of anyone that makes new body bushings for these classic Pontiacs. Even Kanter Auto does not re-pop them.

Having said that, Chevrolet and Pontiac did share some parts in the 40s and early 50s. So I would suggest looking at the '51 Chevy body mount kit from Chevs of 40s. Perhaps you can use that kit instead.

I found two ads in the current issue of Smoke Signals that is advertising 30s to 70s NOS parts. This is a shot in the dark but who knows, they may have what you need or give you a good lead.

I understand that. No one that I know re-manufacturers body mounts for Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles, or Cadillacs of that era. Chevy is the only one that gets any love here, unless you can find New Old Stock (NOS) parts (which will be expensive). Which is why I said that I know some parts between Pontiac and Chevy during these years were shared, and why I asked if you've looked at the Chevy mounts, are they even close and could be adapted?

Also I gave you some contacts that claim they have NOS parts. They may have what you need or they might be able to give you a lead. Have you reached out to them yet?

The only other thing you can do is fabricate your own, which is not the ideal solution, I know.
