The 1954 Pontiac Strato Streak developed by Harley Earl and designer Art Ross of General Motors was created as a concept car for the 1954 Motorama auto shows.
The 1954 Pontiac Strato Streak was a four-door pillarless hardtop inspired by the European Lancia. With no center post between the doors, the car could be opened up completely. It had 4 bucket seats and the front seats swiveled sideways 90 degrees for easier entry.
It was designed as a fiberglass 4 door hardtop and equipped with a straight-eight 268.4 cubes, 122 hp engine.
The fate of this car is unknown.[Reply to this comment]
