General Motors positioned the Pontiac brand in the market in 1926. The first model of the new brand was the so-called “Series 6-27”, where the 6 stood for the six-cylinder engine, and the 27 for the (upcoming) year 1927. The 6-27 was initially only available as a two-seater coupe or as five-seater sedan, but already half a year later, two- and four-door Landaulets followed.
At the beginning of 1927, the “New Finer 6-27” emerged, distinguishable by its improved front fenders. Additionally, convertible and roadster became available.
After further revisions, the “New Series 6-28” was launched in January 1928 accordingly. These models featured a flatter radiator grille and a more fluid bodywork styling.
In 3 years, about 414,000 units were produced, a remarkably large number in its time, surpassing all expectations. The “New Series” was replaced by the “Big Six”, a technically as well as optically rather similar successor model.
