I've got a '53 Chieftain 2-door sedan myself. I'm just wrapping up freshening up a '52 straight eight to go into it.

Nothing like those flathead straight eights running. Can't miss an old Pontiac engine sound.

We're right across the Deleware river from Easton, PA. I've owned the car for a couple of years, but it hasn't moved under its own power since 1980. We pulled it out of the garage last weekend to turn in around in preparation for the engine swap. Out with the dead six and in with the live eight...I hope. It still needs brakes and other work but I'm still digging it.

Here's another shot of the engine:

Shpotty, motor looks great. I was thinking about your project last week and wondering how it was coming along. My '54 is down to bare metal and getting prepped for a purple flake roof and a pearl white body. What color is that on your straight 8? Drove mine to the shop and those straight 8's are weak on power but the cool factor is a 10+ when you pop the hood and then they figure out it has been running the entire time!!!!!

Early Pontiacs are a bargain usually much cheaper than equivalent Chevies. Parts are readily available and they are, well, not a Chevy. (Not knocking Chevy but bolstering something outside the norm).

I know of only 2 or 3 runners that I've seen around (Houston area).

Montechris,

I painted it with Duplicolor Detroit Diesel Alpine green. I liked it better than the dark green that it was "supposed" to be.

My 50. In the works and tired of seeing all the primer. Hope to get it straight enough to spray before spring.

I used a '94 Caprice Classic front frame stub under the '51 wagon. Huge sway bar, big brakes, 5 on 5, which let me use the original wheels after clearancing the calipers a little.

It does push the wheels outboard a little, so if you want to drag the crossmember on the ground, tire clearance will be an issue. Mines low enough a floor jack won't go under the crossmember as it is, to my eye, that's low enough.

It was painted green in 76 over the original white, runs the straight 8 and has perfect original red interior.

Now I've lowered it a bit, put the whitewalls on and oldsmobile caps.

That is a nice car,Ive not seen any straight Eight 50's pontiacs.(oz delivered)
According to eddie ford(70s street rodder)there were only 250 brought in in 54,a very small number of those would have been 8s.

Whats it drive like?
I changed the diff ratio for 56 pontiac 3:63 (better on the freeway but painfull on take off)

Let me know if you need any bits I dont have much I may be able to source some.

Cut a coil and a half out of the front, the rear has 4 leaves yanked with 3 inch belltech blocks and u-bolts in the rear. The rear has been dropped about 8 or 9 inches from where it sat stock when I got it.

Does anyone know how involved adding a dual master is (53 chieftian)? My master might be bad, and i was reading ofton people would use early 70s truck dual master cylinders. I'm told these are about 30 bucks, and safer too. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the offer mate, dont need any parts at the moment but once i start pulling things apart im sure something will come up.

As for driving, it drives fine, really smooth. Does take a bit on take off but yeah, drives better than any other old car I've had.

Default Re: Early 50's Pontiacs

I've been trying to research this on the HAMB, and i've not found too much information specific to pontiac so i started looking into the chevy swaps. The Chevy swap seems more complicated as the pedal is mounted on the master.

The pedal on my pontiac is mounted to the frame, and the master is directly infront of it with a rod that simply pushes the master as you would expect. Seeing that this setup is much simpler than the chevy, i think i can just use a chevy truck master and hold it on with a bracket(in the same location as the original master) i can fab. Is the swap really this easy?

Can i simply split the single feed brake line into two easy enough?

Other questions i have are in regards to using a proportioning valve, and pedal/master pressure ratio.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

-Chris

You all should check out www.1952pontiac.com its a great source of info for 49-54 pontiacs, and there is a forum which i see as a good place to discuss pontiac specific needs.

Hi I've got a 54 Pontiac that I have just picked up. It ran and kinda stopped but were making it all realiable and a nice driver.


When we got it.

I painted the wheels, and cleaned it up for a better pic.

I meant to post this picture too, has anyone seen a lion like we have on our dash before? I thought it might be a previous owners add-on, but our heater controls are down low, unlike all the ones I have seen in photos, and it only has two bars above the radio, and then the lion. One other dash panel I found pictures of had 3 bars, and no lion.

Thumbs up Re: Early 50's Pontiacs

This yellow Pontiac is so cool, a very well done custom. I don't know who owns it, I just keep the pictures because it's so fine.
