Pontiac's first Post-War production car was the Streamliner. Initially a fastback coupe, the Streamliner's cloak was an innovative design that made it instantly distinguishable from much of the era's monotonous auto market. The Indian chief head ornament adorned hood stretches all the way back to the windshield instead of stopping at a separate cowl panel and the sloped fenders are extended into the front doors, both of which create an elongating effect. The headlamps are spaced farther apart to make room for the wider three bar framed grill and overrider bumper, giving the car a broad highway dominating demeanor.
Measuring in at almost 216 inches in length, the Streamliner station wagon set a new record as the longest Pontiac ever made. The Streamliner station wagons were constructed at Ionia Manufacturing and the top-of-the-line trim package, known as the Deluxe-Eight, was priced around $2,100ómaking it Pontiac's most expensive car at the time.
Make no mistake: if you drove a Pontiac Streamliner Woodie estate in the late 1940s and 1950s, your family was doing A-OK. Large, powerful, luxurious, expensive, and finished in enough brightwork to make a B17 Flying Fortress jealous and more bark than the Redwood National Park, the Pontiac Streamliner Woodie was the epitome of American excess when American excess was something to be proud of, guilt free.
