This 1953 Pontiac Chieftain tin woody wagon has that look of a classic road trip machine. Can't you just imagine crossing a state park and then having a tailgate picnic on the back? The whole straight-eight package really does have that level of authentic vintage vibe.

Pontiac wagons were more expensive than the convertibles, and the body tag tells us this was born an eight-cylinder car. So you know it was rare when new, and exceptional to find today. That's why they took the time to make sure it keeps a classic style. The maroon paint is the perfect color to distinguish the rounded metal while still having a warm enough tone to complement the simulated painted wood on the exterior. And you also can tell there was a lot of thought and investment in the brightwork. More than just having an excellent shine on the grille and bumpers, this is complete right down to the intricate side trim. And the silver streaks on the hood are a classic Pontiac favorite. And you'll love all the vintage details, including the windshield sunshade, whitewall tires, rear fender skirts, side spotlight, and a correct amber chief leading the way.

More of the stylish maroon awaits you inside. Just like the exterior, the color goes well with the wood-like tones and brown inserts on the doors. But the first thing you'll really notice about this layout is how comfy everything is. Plus, carpeting, nice door panels, and a soft velour on the button-top seats give this wagon a living room level of comfort. So you wouldn't mind being a kid and watching the byways fly by from the back seat. But the most fun is that classic tingle you get when you slip behind that artful Pontiac steering wheel and gaze at the driver-oriented layout that still keeps the heat and AM radio controls there for display. And all that glossy real wood on the floor of the cargo area is both fun to show off at the car shows and it offers plenty of space for you to load up supplies for a full day of enjoyment.

Pontiac's straight-eight motor earned a reputation for being both smooth and full of torque. This 268 cubic-inch motor looks authentic right down to the oil bath air cleaner, and it has a tidy look that you'll love showing off. And because a car like this loves to be a comfortable driver, the Hydramatic automatic transmission keeps this family wagon an easy cruiser.

It's hard not to get excited about something this distinctive and rare. So if you're looking to turn heads with a true classic, call today!
