Named for the famous speed-record Salt Flats in Utah, Bonneville was Pontiac’s luxury/performance car done on a grand scale.
Full-size Pontiacs were redesigned for the 1963 model year with a pair of vertically stacked headlamps at either end of the grille and parentheses-style tail lamps at the back.
Once upon a time in America, people drove long and large, and in cars to which those adjectives also applied.
It’s said that Harley Earl, the initial head of design for General Motors, got the idea for this Pontiac Bonneville Special concept car while watching world speed records.
