CERTIFIED BY POCI, 6 CYL, 3 SPD MAN, ORIGINAL...TRUE SURVIVOR, 57,770 ORIG MILES
It's easy to have a survivor car if it's only a couple of decades old, but what about if the vehicle is older than you? This 1932 Pontiac 5-Window Business Coupe looks amazing and is a certified survivor by the Pontiac Oakland Club International (POCI).
It's rare to find a piece of history that you can so readily take for a Sunday drive. Pontiac lovers will know 1932 as the year Oakland stopped producing cars, and its companion Pontiac became the primary brand. This particular business coupe is a multiple award winner for its condition. The black paint has the unmistakable shine of old school lacquer. Over 80% of the original finish is still intact as certified by the POCI, and the rest shows the perfect patina that tells everyone else that you prefer preservation over restoration. You can tell this one is special with all the amazing details, right down to the original Pontiac arrowhead logo embedded in the twin grille. The red wire wheels are a great touch of color to match the pinstripe. Of course those who know these cars will realize that the original factory equipment looked more like the wood spare that's mounted in the rear, but don't worry, the full factory wood wheel set also comes with the car.
Inside is one of the most remarkable interiors you will ever see. The original fabric has stayed with this car 80+ years, but it barely looks like anyone has ever sat in this Pontiac. You need to experience the 80+ year old original, camel-colored mohair on the seats and doors because it feels so different from the reproductions that most pre-WWII classics have to use when being restored. This is a lost feeling on most other cars, but it's so complete on this 1932 coupe that there is only one button missing in all its years on the road. No one has tried to ruin this time machine with aftermarket parts like air conditioning. Instead, this thoroughly correct interior means raising the front windshield and rolling down the back window to get your ventilation the way they did it a few branches up on your family tree.
If it seems like we're mentioning driving this classic a lot, it is because how remarkably road-ready this Pontiac is despite entering its ninth decade on this earth. The original 200 cubic-inch straight-six has been certified that the 57,770 miles on the odometer is accurate (that's averaging less than 700 miles per year!) It takes less encouragement to fire this one up than other Pontiacs that are a quarter of its age. Getting this coupe on the road feels like an industrial symphony of simplicity. The exhaust has a rhythmic chug that is like being in charge of a mini locomotive as the tempo increases with the acceleration. The three-speed manual transmission means there are enough ratios to get up the hills. Plus, it's easier to shift than you think thanks to synchromesh on second and third gears. There is even a ride firmness control knob on the dashboard that regulates the oil in the shock cylinders – that's true 1930s luxury!
This Pontiac will be the most interesting car you could ever bring to the show, and you don't even need to trailer it there. This runner comes with plenty of original spare parts such as a third set of wheels, 20 lug nuts, and 6 hubcaps. But leave plenty of room in the trunk when you take this home because it also comes with the owner's manual, original documents, and a whole lot of trophies. This is a true survivor, and it's ready for you to be a part of its history. It is already a showroom favorite...call today!!
