1931 Pontiac

From John Gunnell’s book 75 years of Pontiac Oakland:

“Pontiac’s Fine Six 4-door Custom Sedan, Job 31319, was originally brought to market as a 2,743 pound car priced at $785 and equipped with five spoke artillery wheels. It weighed 42 pounds less than the same 1930 model similarly equipped. A month after these cars were introduced, in January 1931, 45-spoke Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels were made a regular feature and were a big help in catching the eye  of potential buyers. Outwardly the Custom Sedan is distinguished by a chrome headlight tie bar.”
