This beautiful 1936 Pontiac, named the “Pindian” and built by Legens Hot Rods, has already collected awards and acclaim this year. It finished in the Great 8 finalists for the Ridler Award at the 2018 Detroit Autorama, and more recently made the Top Five for Goodguys Street Rod of the Year! It also won the Goodguys ‘America’s Most Beautiful Street Rod’ 2018 award. Now, it’s heading to the 2018 SEMA show.
The 1936 Pontiac “Pindian” has been stretched, chopped, stylized, and refined into the gorgeous modern masterpiece it is today. The body is stretched forward four inches, and the grille line now extends over the middle of the entire car. It rides on a custom Roadster Shop chassis, powered by an LT4 Corvette crate engine that puts out 650 horsepower thanks to a Bowler-prepped 4L80E transmission.
On the inside, the 1936 Pontiac “Pindian” is a masterwork of minimalist trim and bold accent pieces. The amazing globe-shaped instrument cluster built by Dakota Digital that ties the whole interior together. Their incredible vision for the interior was inspired by a 1935 advertisement, and the result is stunning. The Pindian’s interior also features Glide seats trimmed in caramel-colored Wollsdorf leather. Relicate carpet, a custom Evod Industries steering wheel, and Clayton Machine aluminum trim create a timeless, classy cabin.
