Part of the GM family, the Pontiac brand was born as the Oakland Car Company in Michigan way back in 1907 and acquired by GM in 1909. When the first Pontiac car was launched in 1926, it was renowned as the “Chief of the Sixes” for its 6-cylinder engine. Its success was one of the chief reasons for the name Pontiac to come on board and the name Oakland to be phased out. Throughout the 40s, 50s, and 60s, Pontiac ruled the roost with its wagons, sedans, and coupes line-up in the low to mid-price ranges. Ultimately, GM discontinued the iconic brand after 2010. However, that doesn’t mean that you still can’t own a classic Pontiac. Listed below are some of the most affordable and amazing Pontiac cars for sale currently in the US:
