What a great looking bubble top. I plucked this one out of a 45 car
private collection in Nashville. Of all the great cars, this one
stood out to me. The color combination, great lines, tastefully
upgraded wheels really make this a unique car that people love.
EXTERIOR: I love the look of this car. It has a rather masculine,
yet sporty appearance. Of course we put it on the lift, the body is
really straight and solid. The doors fit very nice along the
bottom, I don't see any bubbling or cracking. Has very clean wheel
well lips around the rear quarter panels. Nice silver metallic
paint job with a clear coat glossy finish. In back the bumper is
rechromed and wraps upward into the tailfin. Cool looking 6 round
tail lights. Upfront the bumper is rechromed and there is that
great looking split and slanted grills. Of course the bubbletop
roof is very desirable. Has wide side moldings with bold Bonneville
gold letters. The wheel wells were designed to be open and show off
the wheels. This car happens to have some great looking wire wheels
on radial redline tires.
INTERIOR: It has been completely reupholstered- seats and door
panels. New headliner and carpet. Also has original Pontiac
floormats. The dash pad has been reupholstered. New oil and
temperature gauges are neatly installed under the dash.
MOTOR COMPARTMENT: It has been cleaned and painted. New Edelbrock
Carb was just installed. Has correct chrome valve covers.
UNDERSIDE: Rock solid, clean original metal. The inner rockers,
lower 1/4s look clean. Upgraded Koni gas shocks, new springs.
The Bonneville was a monumental car that helped launch the muscle
car era. It was 3,900 pounds of sportiness. Again, what a great
