Description

The elegantly rebodied 1939 Pontiac featured wider “pontoon” fenders, streamlined noses with chromed “catwalk” grilles, a reduced overall height, more glass, “Silver Streak” trim, and headlamps resting on the front fenders giving it a more streamlined appearance.  Hidden underneath this new body were variable-rate “Duflex” rear springs. The 1939’s were available with a straight six or eight. The deluxe models were available with running boards or “body skirts”. This example is the Deluxe Eight featuring a 248.9 cid engine producing 100 bhp. List price new was $1046.
