Have a look at this awesome 1959 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible. This car was restored in 2008 and it shows everywhere you look. In the clean and tidy engine bay you will find a numbers matching 389 cubic inch V8 that produces 345 horsepower and is connected to a Hydra-matic automatic column shifted transmission. Other features under the hood include a tri-power carburetor set up, power steering and power brakes. The rare tri-tone “Sunset Glow” style interior is in excellent condition. Up front, you will find a rare two factory bucket seats option, and the rear seat comes in a bench style. The dash comes in Pink, and the door panels coming in Pink with White trim. The dash has three large gauges with the far left being a fuel with generator gauge with left turning signal indicator, middle being a dedicated speedometer, far right being a cold/hot with clock in the center, oil pressure and right turning signal indicator. Other interior features are heating, push button AM Radio, power top, and factory steering wheel with clear plastic center cap with Pontiac logo. The exterior is what most people would refer to it as a long and stylish car with its curved windshield and late 50’s tail fins, and rocket style rear lights. This car is an absolute head turner, especially with the fresh white vinyl convertible top down. It comes in Cameo White paint and all the exterior moldings including front and rear bumpers have been polished and are in great condition. Other exterior features include fender skirts, and very large trunk with spare tire mounted inside and optional factory pull-out trunk light. This Bonneville sits on its original steel wheels with factory hubcaps that are wrapped in wide white wall tires and are stopped by drum brakes all the way around. Be the lucky owner of this very cool convertible and enjoy a nice cruise with family and friends in style!
