Please people, learn one thing. There is nu such thing as a Pontiac Silver Streak! Silver Streak is the name of the straight 6 and 8 engines used in these models.
In 1948 there were two model lines in the USA, the Torpedo (A-Body, shared with Chevrolet) and Streamliner (B-Body, shared with Oldsmobile, Buick and Cadillac).
The convertible was only available for the Torpedo line, the wagon only for the Streamliner series.
This makes this Pontiac a 1948 Torpedo Convertible DeLuxe Silver Streak 8 (model 27). DeLuxe because of the stainless spears on the front fender and door and stainless gravel guards instead of rubber ones. The front grill is different from the other years this car was available, 1948 being the last year. It was the first year for the Hydra Matic transmission for Pontiac.

Does this also apply to the two 1935 models?
