1965 Pontiac Bonneville -- Additional Info:

Pontiac really understood how to bring performance and luxury in equal measures. The best way to see it is on this 1965 Pontiac Bonneville convertible. Sleek styling, great features, and upgraded tri-power V8 with four-on-the-floor make this one a terrific total package. Red is always a good decision when restoring a classic convertible. And the modern clearcoat shine makes sure that this sunshine-friendly droptop look its best every time you take it out for a drive. But more than just... how others view this Pontiac, you want it because it's a '65. That's when the styling was changed to the Coke bottle curves that we all loved in this era. And speaking of style, this one has all the right premium touches worthy of a top luxury cruiser. You see it in the front with the extra wide chrome bumper and stacked headlights each in their own chrome pod. In the rear, the taillight panel is hidden within the stylized sweeping trim that's right above the nicely integrated rear bumper. Plus, Pontiac people love pointing out the special eight-lug wheels, and in this case, there are even skirts over the rear ones. If you like the way the white convertible top looks against the red, then you'll love the look even more when you take it down to reveal the white interior. The upholstery, boot cover, and side panels all share this bright presentation. But the carpeting is black, so you never have to worry about dusting off your shoes before hopping in and going for a drive. Pontiac made sure Bonneville earned its luxury reputation with bucket seats up front and a comfortable center console in-between. The rear passengers were not neglected either with plenty of legroom and a fold-down armrest to provide individual comfort. And because this has power windows and a power convertible top, you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. In fact, this is absolutely a driver's car. The long dash is dominated by your gauges, including the tach. That goes especially well with the stick shift. Under the hood is a terrific Pontiac legend. The 421 cubic-inch V8 is the motor that really got them on the Super Duty train to victory. And not only do you have an upgrade in displacement, but it's also topped with the triple dual-barrel Rochester carburetors to give you the Tri-Power package. This is the kind of motor that you're going to want to show off, and so it has the shine and tidiness that tells you it has been maintained correctly. And we already know you're going to take the long way to get to the car shows. After all, the four-speed manual transmission means you have complete control over this legendary power package. Plus, the power steering and power brakes makes this a fine cruiser. Long, loaded, and powerful - this is a dream Pontiac for many of us, but only one gets to take it home. So if you want that to be you, hurry up and call today!
