BEAUTIFUL BONNEVILLE, ONLY 38,029 ORIGINAL MILES, NICE CAR, GREAT INVESTMENT!
You've seen cars like this 1964 Pontiac Bonneville tucked into garages in your neighborhood. You crane your neck when you're out in the country, trying to peer into barns on old farms. You have an elderly aunt who bought hers new and is still driving it today. Yes, one-owner, low-mile survivors do exist, and this is a positively amazing example.
It shows just 38,029 original miles, and with just a single owner who bought it new in 1964, it's pretty much exactly the way it was back then. Someone clearly loved this car and treated it gently, because a top-of-the-line Bonneville hardtop sedan was not an inexpensive car when it was new. It is also infused with Pontiac performance DNA and crisp styling that makes no secret about this car's relatives, the GTO and the Grand Prix. A matching white vinyl top demonstrates just how nice this car is, offering up some 60's elegance, which is exactly how you want it. Even the chrome, which is often the first thing to go on a vintage car, still sparkles brightly and while it's not perfect, it's pretty darned impressive.
GM nailed it with the Bonneville's interior, a combination of full-sized luxury and just a hint of performance, the exact right combination for the young executive with a family. The brocade fabric is comfortable and in excellent condition, with button-tufted bench seats and armrests for front and rear passengers. A few well-chosen woodgrain appliques warm up the black interior and they work well with the sparkling shiny trim on the dash, highlighting the Bonneville's "executive express" status. A trio of gauges is angled towards the driver, just above the original AM radio that's still fully functional. In addition, there's a second AM/FM/CD stereo head unit stashed under the dash that's probably more appropriate to today's driver. Power windows are another nice feature, particularly in a pillarless hardtop, givng it a sleek look on the roll. The trunk is positively massive and it sure looks like it still holds the original mat, along with a full-sized spare and jack assembly.
The original, numbers-matching 389 cubic inch V8 was a fantastic performer in the Bonneville. Both the engine and the 3-speed automatic transmission were rebuilt about six months ago, so it's in top mechanical condition, befitting its overall shape. The engine bay was nicely detailed with Pontiac Turquoise paint, a correct air cleaner, and satin black inner fenders and firewall. An auxiliary fan was fitted to the radiator for low-speed cruising (think: parades) and twin Flowmaster mufflers give this formal sedan a muscle car growl at speed. The underside is as clean as you'd expect, and it rides on fresh shocks, new brakes and lines, along with 215/75/14 whitewall radials that are just a few months old.
Impressive is the right word for a car like this, both in terms of preservation and performance. If there's more luxury muscle for less money anywhere, I'd be shocked. Call today!
