Howdy from Pontiac enthusiast down under.

Recommended Posts

Hi there folks, just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I come from Auckland, New Zealand and are the proud owner of a 1957 Pontiac Star Chief, which I imported from the US in 2012. It is a great condition vehicle, although the paintwork does need some work. It has been repowered by a 5.3 LS engine, mated to an electronic 4L60E transmission, which makes it a great cruiser, although some other Pontiac owners have been know to turn up their nose at this "other make" engine. But what the heck, I like it and that's all that counts.

It has a front clip from a  '78 Malibu, which gives it front mounted power steering, disc brakes, and anti-roll bar, and runs on an 18" front/20" rear Coys wheel combo.

It certainly turns heads when driving, and it's great turning up at shows and being the only '57 Star Chief in attendance amongst hoards of '57 Chevy Hardtops.
