1961 Pontiac Bonneville
Zoom icon


A little known fact about the Pontiac Bonneville nameplate is that it has a pretty lengthy production history. The Bonneville was produced from 1958-2005; that's 47 years! Changing shape many times over the years, with each new generation being a near-complete restyle, the Bonneville is one model where any pre-1970s iteration is guaranteed to be a hit.

This Bonneville is a gorgeous example. An older restoration, this car has gotten the preservation it deserves! The body is finished in the correct color of Fernando Beige; a color that looks stunning on this '60s GM. The styling on this car speaks for itself, and this is a great example of just how substantial two-door cars once were. While it is showing some age here and there, this is a perfectly presentable classic ready for your weekend cruises or local car shows!

The interior is even more beautiful than the exterior! Though all of the interior colors are a version of brown, they work well with the exterior color and the interior is oddly charming. There's something special about an early 1960s classic that hasn't been overdone and customized; a reminder of the cars that were there but didn't quite make the highlight reel. The interior has held up excellently since this car was restored, and you could almost believe it was installed yesterday!

Under the hood is a correct Pontiac 389 V8 with a tri-power carburetor setup. This car has been tuned up right and really moves! You may have heard that tri-powers can be difficult to deal with, but once you've driven one that is set up right you'll understand the appeal. As large and unassuming as this Pontiac is, make no mistake: this is a quick little cruiser. One big alteration from original has been done, and understandably so. This Pontiac is fitted with an aftermarket modern air conditioning system to ensure cool air on a hot day!

If hot rods and muscle cars aren't your thing, but you want to be able to keep up if need be, this 1961 Pontiac Bonneville would be an excellent selection. Whether its car shows, weekend cruising, or simply the occasional drive to the store, this Bonneville fits the bill.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.
