One owner, Arizona car since new.
A local lady ordered this 1966 Bonneville convertible from Mechum Pontiac here in Phoenix, Arizona in August 1966 and she kept it until she passed away recently at 93 years of age. So the Pontiac has spent all it's life in dry Arizona.
The body is absolutely rust free except for in the trunk where a bottle of bleach spilled and caused the trunk floor to get some rust.
She owned a pickup truck that she drove most of the time so the Bonneville was left in the garage and during 52 years she only drove the car 73.900 miles!
The car is in very good, almost excellent condition. The paint is a little faded, there's 2 cracks in the dash pad. Good chrome.
The Bonneville runs excellent with great brakes, strong running engine, trans that shifts as is should and all gauges work including the fuel gauge and ever the radio works.
The power top works also. We are replacing the dry, original top and also installing a new top booth. We just removed the pretty nice vinyl seat covers she had installed and the original leather seats are almost perfect underneath!
There's a lot of documentation included, the original sales contract, the original finance contract with Valley National Bank and much more.
AND AS ALWAYS, WE SELL AND EXPORT WORLDWIDE
COPPERSTATE CLASSIC CARS
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.
