PRICE REDUCED $12,000!! This is a gorgeous restored-as-needed 1948 Pontiac Silver Streak 8 Woodie Station Sedan that is in gorgeous condition for concours or touring. With 58,000 miles from new and lovingly restored as necessary, this is a fantastic example. It is in overall high-point condition while having an interior that is in excellent original condition today. This must be one of the nicest examples of this rare woody in existence today.
This was part of our personal collection as it is such a pristine Woodie with long-term loving owners. Unfortunately, space limitations necessitate us selling it. The past owner was Dr. Sylvio Albert of Oswego, NY. Dr. Albert bought the Woodie in May of 1993. He had much of the restoration work performed to make it a high point AACA contender, although he never showed it under his ownership. Dr. Albert acquired the Woodie from James Grant of Dexter, Maine with 57,723 miles from new. James acquired it from his father, Kenneth Grant also from Dexter. Kenneth acquired the Woodie on January 31, 1974 from its Southern California owner.
The Woodie has its livery finished in Parma Wine (Paint Code 4803) and the ash and mahogany wood was refinished with five coats of varnish that was then hand rubbed. The paint and wood are in show condition today and just gorgeous. The quality of the original wood shows the incredible workmanship that the Ypsilanti Furniture Company in Ionia, MI invested in making these incredible Woodies. The quality of build is far superior than Packard and other high-end manufacturers of the time. The chrome and stainless have been replated or polished as necessary and look beautiful. The top has also been redone and is like new. The painted center medallions on the hub caps show some age while the hub caps are excellent. The Woodie is accessorized with fog lights and the white walled tires look new.
The interior is magical. The dash, steering wheel, upholstery and rubber floor mats are all original and in beautiful condition. The dash plastic and chrome are exceptional and nicer that any we’ve ever seen. The rear seat was an option and was added by Dr. Albert under his ownership. The instruments work well with the exception of the fuel gauge and the clock. The condition and originality of the interior speaks volumes as to the care this Woodie has received through its life.
The engine compartment and chassis are all detailed for show and exhibit beautifully. The venerable 249 CID straight eight engine produces 104 hp and runs well. The three-speed manual transmission shifts well and easily, and 122″ wheelbase ensures that the ride is smooth.
The Hagerty Value Guide shows the 1948 Pontiac Station Wagon valued at $104,000 for a No. 1 example and $88,600 for a No. 2 example. We have this well priced.
