1961 Pontiac Bonneville 2 dr. convertible Description

This is a rare and interesting example of a 1961 Pontiac Bonneville convertible that came from the factory with 389 engine, Three 2 barrel carburetors, manual four speed transmission with bench seats. The care ran well when I bought it and I repaired one rusted brake line to make it drive-able. When I purchased the car it had a 4 barrel carb and intake set-up, but I have replaced it with a correct, though not the original 3 two barrel carb set up. Currently I have not installed new intake gaskets or attached the set up to the engine. The car also has an original style factory 3 2 barrel air cleaner as shown in the pictures. The car needs floor pans, some new are included. It will need some other body work, a complete new interior and top. The original convertible top was also green. I have a PHS (Pontiac Historical Society) document package that includes copies of the build manifest. There were 1335 Bonnevilles built with the 318 HP 389 engine and manual 4 speed with 3 2 barrel carburetors. That includes all body styles, so the convertible model production is much fewer.
While not fitted from the factory, I do have a set of 8 lug Pontiac wheels that will go with the car if you use the "Buy It Now" price. If that price is not reached, I will make the wheels available to the winner for and additional cost, if they are interested.
The car needs full restoration, but it is a rare and highly desirable and looks great.

Included are four after market replacement floorpans, a new carpet, new sill plates and new front & rear shock absorbers. Have extra side molding, dash pad and better tail light assemblies. Have some used but nice exterior emblems. The frame has some areas of rust out, however i have anther solid frame that goes with the car.

Transport is responsibility of the buyer.
