1952 Pontiac Straight 8 Eight Engine Flathead W/ manual Tranny

$1,799.00

Description

I purchased a 1952 Pontiac Chieftain for a project but I do not intend to use the herein advertised straight 8 (I believe this to be the 268.2 cu in (4.4 L) ), or the 3 speed manual transmission. For what it’s worth, the car seller told me the vehicle has sat for 20 years but that it ran when parked. Upon inspection, the engine had aged oil in it and immediately turned freely by hand, with expected effort against compression. I oiled and pulled the spark plugs and could see the valves moving in all cylinders. It appears the starter solenoid is bad, so unfortunately I can not offer any cylinder compression stats. The transmission appears to shift (static) into all gears but it’s condition is unknown. Upon sale, or sooner as my build progresses, I will remove the engine and transmission for delivery. Though the add states for “local pick up only”, I will make reasonable accommodations to work with you for local pickup or with a shipper whom you arrange for and manage, as required.
