Hardtop-Series 28
1961 was a monumental year for Pontiac as they claimed the number-three sales position. They would hold on to this position all through the Sixties. Their retention was due to their focus on detail, elegant styling, success as the racetrack, and wonderful interiors.

Pontiac restyled their full-size cars for 1961. In the front there was a distinctive 'split-grille' which was brought back after a one-year hiatus. Two-door hardtops had a thin-pillar and bubbletop roofline which they shared with their sisters cars from Chevrolet, Oldsmobile and Buick.

Pontiac's full-size range included the entry-level Catalina and the luxury-trimmed Ventura. The Bonneville rode on a 123-inch wheelbase and featured triple tail lamps and extended rear deck.

This example has its original 'Morrokide' bucket-seat interior, which was exclusive to the convertible, but was special ordered for this coupe. It has a rare Tri-Power version of the 389 'Trophy' V8 engine, backed by a four-speed Hydra-Matic. There are eight-lug wheels which were added by the current owner, who purchased this 'Wide-Track' from the son of the original owner in the 1990s.
