1940 Pontiac Special Six Touring For Sale

Now reduced 1940 Pontiac Special Six Touring Sedan We are pleased to offer this stunning 1940’s American classic on behalf of one of our best customers due to illness. The Pontiac was imported from the U.S to Belgium several years ago with our customer then importing it to the UK in early 2016. During the last 12 months the car has had some further detailing and improvements at considerable cost. This and other restoration work is covered in the following description but of course feel free to contact me with any questions. Bodywork The Pontiac was originally supplied new in a dark blue colour, however after being shipped to Belgium, it went through quite an extensive restoration prior to our customer buying it last year. The colour was changed to the lighter powder blue in order to resemble the correct style for the U.S Navy during WW2. Bodily the car is in very good shape with only very, very minor bits of surface corrosion in isolated areas. The body panels are rock solid, straight and free from any filler or botched repairs. The underside is even better with no rust issues, damage or welding anywhere. The chrome is also very good with only a small amount of pitting. Overall all, the Pontiac is excellent bodily Interior The Interior is again nice and had been fully refurbished prior to our customer importing it from Belgium. The seats, door cards, headliner and finishing trims are nice and period with only minor wear on the upper surfaces. All dials, switches and knobs work as they should, with exception to the radio and time clock which need to be converted to 12 volt as which we will be explained in the mechanical section of this description. The owner has now kindly provided a box of history for the Pontiac going back to 1975 in which the owner at that time had written many letters to GM and suppliers regarding various service items, old insurance quotes and many other enquiries. There are also some 1939 Pontiac paint charts, trim options and specification costs from Dizzler Pontiac in Michigan, I assume the supplying dealer at the time. There are even some showroom brochures on the car and parts manuals, again from the late 1930's and early 1940's Mechanical. The Pontiac is fabulous mechanically and has wanted for nothing during its current ownership. She always starts first time and runs very quite with plenty of torque from the flat 6-cylinder engine. We have recently fully reconditioned the gearbox due to a slight bearing noise and this is now superb. Last year we also carried out a full rewire and 12-volt conversion, using a new loom supplied by California Pontiac. This also included the fitting of an alternator to improve charging and the lighting. The only items not converted were the radio and time clock. The cost of the re-wire and the gearbox was pretty extensive but our customer intended to keep the car long term. We have also renewed all the tyres and fitted an up to-date immobilisor. The Pontiac is also MOT exempt but we have put her through anyway and she it tested until July 2018 History This Pontiac comes with various items, including a copy of the U.S title from New Jersey, some manuals and handbooks, photo’s of shows attended in the UK and some lovely pictures of the car I its original blue colour during the early 1970’s. Summary This is a very striking and well-cared fore pre-war American classic which has had thousands spent on her over the last several years. She drives great, looks fabulous and has a superb underside. The driving experience is far superior to anything built by us during the 40’s and with the new wiring and 12-volt conversion, the hard work has all been done. The current owner loves this car and has dedicated all his time to making sure she is kept tiptop. He is very sad to sell it so I would ask that only genuine interested parties apply and of course feel free to contact with any questions. We are a small independent classic car specialist in the village of historic village of Brewood in South Staffordshire. We have over 30 years experience in everything related to classics.
