A beautiful presentation of the factory correct colors, a loaded
interior, a few well-placed upgrades, and the original V8 engine -
so while the affordable price might have attracted you to this 1963
Pontiac Bonneville convertible, we know the deeper you dig, the
more you'll realize what a fantastic value this big chromed classic
The color that's instantly grabbing your attention is called Grenadier Red, and it's this convertible's factory-correct color. It has been resprayed during the car's lifetime to make sure that this sunshine-friendly droptop look its best every time you take it out for a drive. So it's not only going to draw crowds in, but also you've got a cool story to tell them. But more than just how others view this Pontiac, you want it because this is one of the coolest cruisers around. 1963 was the first year for the now-iconic stacked headlight design. You can see the so well because all the brightwork seems to be centered around it. The bold chrome bumper cradles the bottom, and the grille and sweeping side trim are almost like arrows pointing towards the vertical headlights. Out back is even more cohesive chrome with one of the best form-fitting bumpers that blends seamlessly into the hint of tailfin. And we love the premium look of the white vinyl top. After all, a Bonneville convertible was one of the most expensive Pontiac offerings of the day - costing more than even the big daddy Grand Prix coupe.
As much as we like the look with the top up, a convertible like this is meant to be open to the world. And we love how the factory-correct maroon interior coordinates with the deep exterior red to give this classic American a European-like feel. Plus, there's plenty of room for family and friends, so you get to share this nice presentation any time you want. And this is truly luxury cruising with features like the power front seat, stylized steering wheel, and bright & beautiful dash. And because this is premium motoring at its finest, you get power windows and a power convertible top. That way you can go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience without leaving the driver's seat.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching V8. Fans of the GTO recognize the Pontiac 389 cubic-inch motor, and it's a great power plant to have here, too. In fact, this one has been given a hint of a muscle car makeover with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, finned valve covers, and some extra rumble from the dual exhaust. Out on the road an upgrade to Wilwood power brakes help further the superior braking that came from Pontiac's optional alloy hub and eight-lug wheel setup. Add in power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission, and this is a grand touring convertible can also deliver on the Pontiac's performance promise.
This is that perfect beach cruiser that looks great and feels solid. So when it's also this affordable, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call today!!!
