Note the chrome strip on the front fender, sometimes. Also the protective buffer on the lower leading edge of the rear fenders, sometimes black and sometimes chrome. I thought this might be two different series, yet both are marked as Silver Streaks. Options?

Here's one explanation I found:

For some unexplainable reason, the station wagon was placed in the Streamliner series -- though it was hardly a fastback. And it came in four models: Streamliner Six and Eight, regular and DeLuxe. The wagon seen here is the Streamliner Eight DeLuxe; at $2,490 it was the costliest 1948 Pontiac.
