The 1946 Pontiacs were basically warmed-over 1942 models. The A-bodied Torpedoes featured "speed-lined" fenders accented with painted pinstripes, a massive 14-blade grille, front-fender crown moldings, "Safe-Light" parking lights and a wrap-around bumper. The B-bodied Streamliners were the first Pontiacs produced after the war and were the only ones available for a time. The Streamliners sported dressed up the "speed-lined" fenders with chrome trim, elongated crown moldings on the front fenders, chrome beltline moldings and were larger than the Torpedoes.
On both lines, the mechanics remain unchanged from 1942.
