4 Door 6DA

New Styling in 1937 and 1938 for Pontiac was based on the trimmer General Motors “B” Body. A new line of larger Deluxe Sixes and Eights had a longer wheelbase, better proportions and a racy reshaped nose. Sales in 1938 were almost 100,000 units. Coupes, two and four door Sedans, Touring Sedans, Sport Coupes, Convertible, and Cabriolet. In 1937, for the first time a Station Wagon was produced.  In Sloan’s “a car for every pocketbook” dictum, Pontiac’s prices slotted in exactly between the most expensive Chevy and the cheapest Oldsmobile. The positioning defined the brand; a Pontiac was a realistic step up the ownership ladder for the Chevy driver of the thirties. Pontiac’s of the time did not emphasize performance; in fact a good running Ford could probably out run one. The goal was to entice low-end buyers to step up to a more stylish and higher prestige brand. As the Depression eased, Pontiac stayed in the sweet spot, introducing its resolutely conservative, middle class customers to industry-firsts like the column-mounted gear shift and a choice of six and eight cylinder engines. And it worked handsomely, propelling the Silver Streaks to fifth place in the sales charts in 1937 with the stylish new cars of that year.
