I visited Jeff Gassen to finalize the purchase of HRE 2000 & his dad's 1946 Pontiac was still there & stored.

I've seen the car many times over the last 5 or 6 years & talked with his dad about the car a few times before he passed.

Jeff & I visited & his dad's old Pontiac will be coming my way. Thanks Jeff.

I'll post more photos when I get the.  Jim

1946 Pontiac Streamliner – 2 door - Torpedo

Barn Find

8 cylinder – 3 speed – fender skirts

Here’s the story………… 

The ’46 is a classic example of a 100% stock - unmolested - original car with no modifications.

The ’46 has been sitting most of the last 25 years coming out only for parades.  It was not started for 7 or 8 years & was always on a battery tender.

I’ve known about this car for a number or years.  A pal (Jeff’s) dad Martian (passed @ 89) had many old cars in a climate controlled showroom.  It was always heated & air conditioned.

Martian redid the car 25 or 30 years ago.  Repainted, replaced or cleaned up all the chrome.  The paint still looks great today.

The interior is great with only a minor tear on the driver’s seat up high.

Recent mechanicals – May 2014

New battery, drain old gas, clean carburetor, check brakes, check antifreeze, change oil, and clean points & plugs. 

The car runs & drives great & is so solid.  It’s even better than I remember.  I have decided to leave the engine bay alone with the patina & not clean & repaint because is add to the originality.  The paint shines great.
