1941 Pontiac

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

“Pontiac became the largest producer in its price class during 1941 and sold 330,061 cars to earn fifth rank in the American industry.”

“Overall styling for 1941 was charcterized by a crisp, massive, contemporary look and a luxury car flavor. Wide, horizontal grilles, with built-in parking lamps, reflected a Lincoln-Zephyr influence. Streamlining was the keynote of the new Torpedo image.”

“In 1941, General Motors-Holden Limited of Australia built a number of open-cab, Pontiac-based “utes” for the use of the Australian Royal Air Force in World War II.”
