Last week, I enjoyed an extensive telephone conversation with the owner of the beautiful 1959 Pontiac Star Chief Sport Sedan in the accompanying photos.

The Sport Sedan below is a mostly original car with a single respray and the addition of a Tri-Power set-up to the 389 V8. Subsequent to the photos, the correct '59 Pontiac Tri-Power emblems have been added to the front fenders. The car's owner was 18-years old when the '59's were introduced, and his best friend's parents had a new Bonneville, which was the cruising car of choice around Juneau, Alaska. Over the years, many Pontiacs have found their way into the owner's stable -- mostly the '55, '56, and '57 models.

I look forward to seeing this car on the road during next year's '59 General Motors tour in my area.

Centurion, that sure is an amazing car. I love the color combination and the engine is something to behold. Where does this beauty live?

This was originally a California car, but it now resides in the northwest corner of Washington state, near the Olympic National Park.

Centurion: I have a set of Tri-Power emblems that I obtained for my 1959 Bonneville but I do not have data or a pattern to locate the holes for mounting clips. If you could inquire of the owner of this Starchief about any tech data he may have used I would greatly appreciate it. Granted he may have had a factory car for a pattern but in my area of South Georgia I know of no other '59 with Tri-Power emblems.
Thanks for your help.

4896..I put the answer to your question in the "Tech Tips" section so it wouldn't get lost here, and could be referenced by others in the future.
