For Sale at Auction: 1957 Pontiac Bonneville in Houston, Texas

Vehicle Description

One of only 630 built in 1957, the Bonneville convertible, with its rocket-influenced details, was the pinnacle of Pontiac design, created by Pontiac to compete with Cadillac. In the world of domestics from the 1950s, it's hard to get more desirable than the 1957 Bonneville convertible. The company built only 630, one for each dealer, to showcase their new performance masterpiece, the first car to come with the iconic Bonneville nameplate, stylishly displayed on the rear fenders with the "fuel-injection" designation. Priced at more than double Pontiac's previous Star Chief convertible, this car was the pinnacle of luxury. Each of the cars came fully equipped with a bevy of standard equipment, such as power steering, power brakes, Wonder Bar radio with electric antenna, leather seating surfaces, power top and eight-way power seats. The Bonneville, even with all its luxury, was no slouch on the road. Each of these cars came with a 347ci V8 engine with Rochester mechanical fuel-injection and a factory rating of 315hp, meaning 0 to 60 mph in 8.1 seconds and a top speed of 101.6 mph. Iconic design features include a Dagmar front end, rocket marker lights and an exhaust that exits through the rear bumper. This car benefited from a frame-off, nut-and-bolt restoration, and has been meticulously cared for since. It comes in the original Kenyan White with Bonneville red and white interior and has Coker vintage-look radials. There is an accompanying notebook, with pictures of the restoration to demonstrate the attention to detail.
