1948 Pontiac

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

“The Pontiac line for 1948 performed strongly in the post war car market. A total of 245, 419 Torpedos and Streamliners were produced, giving the division claim to a fifth rank in industry. The number of Pontiac dealers increased, passing the 4,000 level for the first time in 18 years.”

“A new grille had four horizontal bars intersected by nine vertical shafts. The shorter top bar was actually a ‘PONTIAC’ nameplate.”

“The cheapest Pontiac of the year were the Torpedo three-passenger Business Coupes ($1,500 for a  six-cylinder, $48 more for an eight-cylinder).”
