This big, beautiful 1971 Pontiac Bonneville is one of the best ways
to be distinctive, yet unmistakably American, in an affordable
package. It's a two-owner hardtop with its number's matching big V8
getting a proper rebuild only a few years ago. And everything from
the stylish paint package to the loaded interior makes this a
striking boulevard machine.
This big coupe has big 70's style. It's wearing its correct
Sandalwood color, and the consignor states this is original to the
car. There are some touch-ups and signs of enjoyments, but overall,
we'd all like to look this good after a half-century! And the brown
vinyl roof gives you that classic premium appearance in a true
1970s-style color package. In fact, these Bonnevilles have a great
sense of premium style. You see it in the details, like how the
sheetmetal conforms to the quad headlight package. And speaking of
the front end, this was built before new bumper laws, and so that
chrome king gets to be an integral part of the distinctive deign.
The same goes for Bonneville badging and Pontiac Rally II
The handsome interior coordinates with the exterior paint for
well-done look. The second owner has had this coupe for nearly
two-decades, and one of his improvements was re-covering the seats
in a correct-style upholstery. It's large car with plenty of room
for family and friends, but like Pontiac, the focus is always on
the driver. The wrap-around gauge cluster puts all the controls
within easy reach, and the tilt steering column makes it easy to
see the crisp gauges. This has been upgraded in some nice ways. For
example, the factory air conditioning now runs on modern R134a
refrigerant (it will likely need a recharge.) And while the classic
Delco AM radio is still on display, the rear driving music comes
from an AM/FM/CD stereo in a custom center console.
This coupe was born with Pontiac's legendary 455 cubic-inch V8. The
numbers matching motor was pulled and refreshed a few years ago. It
was even bored to 462ci total. Now this original powerhouse has a
fresh but stock look, and it runs like a well-kept machine should.
The four-barrel carburetor lets it inhale deeply, and the
Flowmaster dual exhaust lets it exhale with a nice tune. It has the
kind of power that allows this Bonneville to live up to its
effortless cruiser image. This is backed up by power steering,
power brakes, front discs, and the numbers-matching three-speed
automatic transmission for the ultimate easy driving classic.
The sale come complete with the owner's manual and maintenance
records. You don't find big V8 hardtops that survive looking so
good that are also this affordable. That's why we know you're going
to need to act fast to take this Pontiac home. Call now!
