Description

Body No. 2199

For America's growing pre-war suburbia, the wood-bodied station wagon was the ultimate in family transportation. Take this 1939 Silver Streak Deluxe Six Station Wagon – with a list price of $990, only Pontiac's Deluxe Eight convertible cost more. Hercules Body Company of Evansville, Indiana crafted the striking ash and Honduras mahogany bodies for not only Pontiac, but Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, and Packard. “If you want to invest just a few more dollars for a lot more car, Pontiac should be your choice,” declared advertising that year, and only Pontiac had the Art Deco “Silver Streak” style created by famed designer Franklin Q. Hershey. The consignor states: “This Pontiac was used for many years as an estate wagon, primarily during the summer, while appearing to have been well stored during the winter months. It ended up for a bit in California where it was featured as the poster car for the 2003 Wavecrest Woodie meet in Encinitas.” As expected, it's well optioned with fog lights, bumper guards, Deluxe steering wheel, heater, and radio. Highly uncommon, only seven 1939 Pontiacs are currently registered with the National Woodie Club. Like a classic mahogany Chris Craft runabout, this Pontiac is the embodiment of pure woodcraft style.
