1959 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible

    In a year of many flamboyant designs, one of 1959's biggest hits was the dramatically restyled Pontiac. The iconic Pontiac split grille design, 'Wide-Track stance and legendary 389 V-8 were all introduced in 1959. Motor Trend Magazine awarded this trendsetting Pontiac its 'Car of the Year' trophy.

    The 1959 Pontiac line include three series: the value-priced Catalina, the mid-level Star Chief, and the top-drawer Bonneville. This example is the fabulous Bonneville Convertible, resplendent in its Sunset Glow exterior and tri-tone leather interior. Options include front bucket seats, power steering, power brakes, 'Wonderbar' signal-seeking radio and four-speed Hydra-Matic transmission. Of the 382,940 Pontiacs built for 1959, exactly 11,426 were Bonneville drop-tops.

    Years of research, several parts cars, and a detailed part-by-part restoration resulted in this restored example.
