1939 Pontiac

From John Gunnell’s book “75 Years of Pontiac Oakland“:

“The 1939 selling season got off to a good start. Pontiac’s model year production rose to 144, 340 units, a 48.5% increase over the prior season. A big reason for the remarkable gain was the division’s return to a three series marketing program with the introduction of a low-cost Quality Six line. These new cars had mostly the same styling and features as the regular Pontiac Six, but were based on the volume efficient Chevrolet A-body.”

“The new Fisher DeLuxe unisteel bodies had larger window areas, slimmer body pillars, concealed door hinges and more graceful Silver Streak styling.”

“Eights could be easily distinguished by their unique Indianhead hood mascots and fancy trim plates surrounding the circular bumper badge.”
