Hey...

So does anyone know where to look up production numbers for '59 Pontiacs... I'm curious to know how many of each model were cranked off the line...

Specifically with Canadian models... for my own purposes.

This is the most I have come across

Total:
382,940

Catalina:
2111 Sport Sedan 2-dr sedan : 26,102
2137 2-door hardtop : 38,309
2119 4-door sedan : 72,377
2139 Vista 4-door hardtop : 45,012
2167 convertible : 14,515
2135 Safari station wagon, 6-pass : 21,162
2145 Safari station wagon, 9-pass : 14,084

Custom Star Chief:
2111 Sport Sedan 2-door sedan : 10,254
2419 4-door sedan : 27,872
2439 Vista 4-door hardtop : 30,689

Bonneville Custom:
2837 2-door hardtop : 27,769
2839 Vista 4-door hardtop : 38,696
2867 convertible : 11,426
2735 Safari station wagon, 6-pass : 4,673

In addition, 380 Star Chief/Bonneville chassis's were used for professional car construction (hearse, ambulance, etc)- I am pretty certain this is in addition to the numbers above.

Here are the production numbers I have for all of 1959


1,462,140 : Chevrolet
1,450,953 : Ford
458,259 : Plymouth

382,940 : Pontiac
382,864 : Oldsmobile
363,372 : Rambler (calculated/estimated)

284,248 : Buick
156,385 : Dodge
149,987 : Mercury

142,272 : Cadillac
126,156 : Studebaker
69,970 : Chrysler

45,724 : DeSoto
44,891 : Edsel
22,309 : Metropolitan

17,269 : Imperial
15,780 : Lincoln
11,126 : Continental


It's interesting that Imperial and Continentals were listed separately than Chrysler and Lincoln. I think Imperial was actually it's own Make until 1962ish. But in 1959 Continentals were Lincolns.

I'd also be curious to see how many canadian ponchos were made. I searched and asked around but never found an answer.
