Up for sale is this very desirable 2dr Hardtop Bonneville. Original 400/4bbl with Auto and Factory A/C. This is one of the hottest and coolest body styles on the hot rodders list today. The body on this baby is straight as an arrow from front to back. Original paint and I think pretty much everything else. You will be hard pressed to find a straighter body. The Original interior is intact with ZERO cracks in the dash. A true find that has been parked under the car port across the street from the High School the previous owner was a teacher at from the late 70s. She starts right up and has always been cranked on a monthly basis to keep her lubed. The undercarriage of this car definitely shows she has been a southern car her whole life. That being said there is rust through on the hood and the drivers side at the vinyl top molding. She could use a little brake work but other then that a driver as/is. This is the one that show cars are made of! No bondo, Original paint and a great place to start.
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.
