This is one of the classics from my personal collection, see others at, www.gccc.us This Pontiac Bonneville convertible is powered by a 389 CID V8 / 6.9L s) engine with Tri-Power (three two-barrel carburetors). You don't see Tri-Power carbs on many cars anymore.Car originally came with a 4 bbl carb. New carb linkage and carb rebuilds, New top, interior is excellent, AC upgraded to R134 and works good.

New brakes, PS,PW, PB Power Top with new hydraulics, Optinal 8 lug Pontiac wheels, Bucket Seats with center console. Car needs to be driven. I have 70 cars and am 70 years old and just can't drive them regularly enough. Only reason I am selling.

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.
