1951 Pontiac Chieftain/Chieftain Deluxe/Streamliner Ads

With the Korean War in full bloom, the auto industry found itself distracted. Wartime munitions and materials production was increased and the automakers soon found themselves in a backseat position when it came time to secure the raw material resources needed to build cars. Though production was not halted as it was during the 1942-'45 war era, shortages of components like rubber, chromium, and steel did serve to reduce output slightly.

As a result of fewer cars to sell, advertising was reduced this year. The Streamliner 4-door sedan was discontinued this season.

PMD celebrated its 25th anniversary this year. The 4 millionth Pontiac was also built this year.

Pontiac Six production total: 53,748
Pontiac Eight production total: 316,411

Pontiac total production: 370,159
