The 1961 Pontiac Bonneville was Pontiac’s most luxurious and costly model available during the 60s. This example rolled off the GM factory production line in Pontiac, Michigan during the 4th week of May 1961. The Bonneville was completed in the 4 door ‘Vista’ hardtop body style which had a sleek roofline and pillarless side window openings. The car was finished in factory Coronado Red with Maroon tri tone vinyl interior.

The car is almost entirely original in presentation and is a survivor quality example. The original paintwork appears to have been given a freshen up externally some time ago and while well-presented in general, does have some minor marks and wear around it. The chrome bumpers have been refinished both front and rear. The car sits on a set of original style steel wheels and hubcaps with white wall tyres.

Inside the interior is all completely factory in presentation with the intricately detailed original ‘Morrokide’ tri-tone vinyl trim. There are big bench seats front and rear with enough room to comfortably seat six adults. Creature comforts include power steering and power brakes.

Under the bonnet of the car is a 389ci 4V Pontiac V8 engine. The engine bay is neatly painted and presented in a factory style finish with correct coloured engine and factory air cleaner in place. The period correct generator is still in place. The engine is paired to the original Hydramatic automatic transmission which is column shifted and power is fed to the rear wheels through the factory diff.

These big body American 60s cars make for fantastic cruisers that are comfortable, have plenty of power and can fit the whole family. This car is being offered at NO RESERVE and is a great alternative to an Impala or Caddy for someone who wants something a little different.
