There is something very alluring about the clean, chiseled lines of the early 1960s Pontiacs. After the fins and frills turned out by Detroit engineers in the 1950s, the restrained, yet elegant, designs of the 1960s represented a new era in automotive styling. Adorned by just the right amount of chrome, their lines speak for themselves without excess ornamentation.
If this type of sporty and sophisticated styling appeals to you, you will love this gorgeous 1961 Pontiac Bonneville convertible. Refinished in its original Shelltone Ivory with a pristine matching White convertible top, this car’s finish has a beautiful luster. Its understated lines are further accentuated by an abundance of chrome and brightwork that are in very good condition. Signature Pontiac 8-lug wheels and caps and white wall tires provide additional distinction.
The interior of this luxurious and sporty Bonneville is equally pleasing, with seating areas finished in sumptuous Tri-tone White, Blue, and Silver leather. Chrome accents and handsome instrumentation lend to a commanding dashboard. You’ll also appreciate its power convertible top, original AM radio, and accessory tissue dispenser.
Lending to this convertible’s rarity and desirability is its tri-powered 389 cubic inch V8 and 4-speed manual transmission, providing an impressive 318 horsepower and 430 ft-lb of torque. Power steering and power brakes will have you firmly in control at the helm. Its smooth and powerful performance, combined with its distinctive looks, is testament to what made these cars so popular, both yesterday and today. Benefiting from a recent carburetor rebuild, and having just 37,000 miles, this beauty runs and drives as well as it looks.
Minor imperfections in the finish and chrome do not detract from the overall appearance of this car.
In addition to a brand-new convertible top boot, the original boot will also be included with sale.
