1954 Pontiac Chieftain by Premium X

1954 Pontiac Chieftain 4-door Sedan

The Pontiac Chieftain was an automobile produced by the Pontiac Motors Division of General Motors from 1949 to 1958. Pontiac was playing the role of a somewhat finer Chevrolet in the General Motors portfolio. Typically a long time were the so-called Silver Streaks, wide chrome strips on hood and trunk lid. 1953 led the way slowly to the pontoon, only the rear fenders were preserved in a stylized form . A year later, the tail fins were at first shy, just this car is a model of the Premium X model. The Chieftain was the standard product, it still existed longer the Star Chief. The customer had a choice of straight-six or straight-eight engines.

Premium X Models 1954 Pontiac Chieftain 4dr Sedan looks excellent with it's two tone paint scheme - Mayfair Blue with San Marino blue roof.
The voluminous , rounded shape is reproduced excellently , the lush chrome jewelry is modeled by chrome-plated parts and steaming, hood ornament, mirrors, a somewhat crude antenna, etched wipers and the  sun visor on the windshield round out the picture of a successful reproduction. The wheels with printed decorative caps and white wall tires, two-tone paint, everything makes a solid impression. You can even see the amber colored Chief Pontiac hood ornament that lights up on the real car when the parking or headlights are turned on. The interior has deposed two colors, the blue of the seats may be a bit too garish , this dashboard and steering wheel are well designed , if not so clearly visible through the relatively small window.

It's not everyday that you see a 1:43 scale model car that has everything going for it. Unusual subject matter, price, detail, accuracy of scale, and product integrity are what you get with Premium X Models 1954 Pontiac Chieftain 4dr Sedan. I highly recommend this superb model to any 1950s era Pontiac enthusiast.
