Pontiac Progress Pre- and After-War

The last pre-war Pontiac rolled off the assembly line in 1942 so manufacturing capacity could be shifted to support the war effort. Pontiac shifts focus to produce rocket-propelled bombs for the US military. In 1946, production resumed using models last seen in 1942. Throughout the rest of the 1940's and 1950's, Pontiac would introduce several notable vehicles, including the 1956 Pontiac Star Chief Catalina, the 1957 Pontiac Bonneville with fuel injection and the 1959 Pontiac Wide Track models, which would win Pontiac its first Motor Trend Car of the Year Award.
