GM created Pontiac in 1926, as a cheaper alternative to the more expensive Oakland. The Pontiac was named after the famous Ottawa chief who had also given his name to the city of Pontiac in Michigan, where the car was produced. The 1928 6-28 featured a radiator cap depicting an Indian brave instead of the previous Indian chief. General Motors produced over 130,000 Pontiac 6-28s in 1928, making the car the fifth best-selling car in America.
Body styles offered in 1928 included both two and four doors Sedan, Landau Coupe, Sport Roadster, Sport Cabriolet, Landau Sport Sedan and a four doors Sport Phaeton.
This Pontiac model is a two‑door Sedan, 3,058cc, straight six engine producing 48bhp, that was manufactured in January 1928 and imported in the UK in 2016. The wooden-spoked wheels have detachable rims.
In addition to the import papers, there are two invoices in the file, one of them for the supply of a new crown‑wheel and pinion fitted in 2016. It has previously been fitted with indicators and a heater. The history file also contains original sales leaflet and parts booklet.
This 1928 Pontiac Sedan has been very well maintained and drives beautifully!
