This 1934 Pontiac 8 Sport Coupe has all the right classic car features. There's swoopy fenders with a spare wheel mound on each side, an iconic rumble seat rear, and even the long straight-eight under the hood. So dig into all the details on pre-war rolling elegance.
A Pontiac rumble seat coupe already had a premium distinction when it was new, but over 85 years later and it becomes a true rare treat. The maroon is a nice color to have on a sophisticated 1930s machine, and it has a nice gloss everywhere you look - including the added trunk on the back. But what really makes this one looks so nice is the inclusion of the black. It goes well with the dark tones of the maroon as it highlights features like the swoopy fenders, crisp profile, and the covers of the fender-mounted spare wheels. And there are even more great details, like the bright waterfall grille, chief hood ornament, and the bright yellow wire wheels with iconic whitewalls.
Inside is more of the beautifully restored '30s extravagance. The gray cloth seat look nicely restored with a plush button-top presentation. You have the large classic-style steering wheel with Pontiac center cap, floor shifter, and full gauge package. So this one delivers a terrific classic car experience. The roll down rear window is a nice way to really get ventilation moving through this coupe. Of course, that feature also helps you talk to anyone you might have in the back, too. The rumble seat is finished in a durable gray vinyl, so it makes for an ideal outside seat.
Under the butterfly hood is a correct 223 cubic-inch straight eight. These long blocks are always great to draw a crowd. So it's nice to see that they spent money restoring the motor without losing the vintage feeling. That means a big green block, oil bath air cleaner, and a classic generator. Best of all, this torquey motor makes that proper 1930s sound going down the byways (you know, the one where the single exhaust sounds like a winding generator with a hint of throatiness.) You can handle around-town driving without breaking a sweat thanks to the three-speed manual transmission and four-wheel drum brakes.
The rumble seat coupe is a true rarity in modern times, and this example runs strong enough that it will be great for everything from Sunday drivers to the parade route. So if you're ready to enjoy true classic motoring, call today!
