A Few Facts About Pontiac
Pontiac was an automobile brand of General Motors that was established in 1926 as a companion make for Chevrolet. Pontiac was marketed as the performance division of General Motors for many years, specializing in mainstream performance vehicles.
The Pontiac Spring and Wagon Works was incorporated in July 1899 and the first Pontiac automobile was introduced in 1907 which was a highwheeler weighing 1,000 pounds and powered by a two-cylinder water-cooled 12 hp engine.
On November, 1908 the Pontiac Spring and Wagon Works and the Oakland Motor Co. merged under the name of the Oakland Motor Car Company.
In January 1909, General Motors purchased the Oakland Motor Car Company and by 1926 introduced the Pontiac brand as the companion marque to General Motor's Oakland division.
In the 1959 model year, Pontiac came out with its "Arrowhead" emblem, with the star design in the middle. The "Arrowhead" design ran all the way up the hood from between the split grille, and on Starchief Models, had 8 chrome stars from the emblem design bolted to both sides of the vehicle as chrome trim.
Pontiac engineer Clayton Leach designed the stamped steel valvetrain rocker arm, a simplified and reliable alternative to a bearing-equipped rocker. This design was subsequently picked up by nearly every OHV engine manufacturer at one point or another.
The entire Pontiac lineup was honored as Motor Trend's Car of the Year for 1965, the third time for Pontiac to receive such honors. The February, 1965 issue of Motor Trend was almost entirely devoted to Pontiac's Car of the Year award and included feature stories on the division's marketing, styling, engineering and performance efforts along with road tests of several models.
From their inception in the 1950s until the early 1970s, Pontiac engines were known for their performance. At the height of the horsepower era, Pontiac engines reached a powerful 390 rated horsepower.
Introduced in 1982, the wedge shaped Firebird was the first major redesign of the Pontiac. Partly due to the hugely successful NBC television series Knight Rider, it was an instant success and provided Pontiac with a foundation on which to build successively more performance oriented models.
On 2009 GM announced it would discontinue the Pontiac brand by the end of 2010, with the last Pontiacs being built in late 2009.
