EVERYTHING IS IN WORKING ORDER , EVEN A/C

It is hard to describe just how smooth, powerful, and beautiful this car is. Laser straight. Please call your inspector or book your flight today. This is a must see and drive automobile. This car has vintage ice cold A/C. We’ve seen some of these go for as much as $220,000 and all we can say is they were no better than this one. The convertible top was hand made by Sharp Brothers in Elyria, Ohio. It fits perfectly and cost $11,000. This car has not been on the market for 20 years. It’s been in a private collection. It is absolutely amazing in every way. Everything works, even the wonder bar radio. It has a 347 cubic inch Rochester mechanical fuel injected V-8 engine (Est.) 315bhp, Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, with rear semi-elliptic leaf springs and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 124". While Pontiac was generally well regarded as a maker of reliable, but somewhat mundane family sedans during the mid-1950s, this image was shattered soon after the legendary Semon 'Bunkie' Knudsen assumed leadership, becoming the youngest GM general manager in the process. Knudsen, who remains famous for the statement "You can sell a young car to old people, but you can't sell an old car to young people", formed the nucleus of his engineering team around E.M. 'Pete' Estes and John Z. DeLorean. Together, they promptly set about building Pontiac's performance image, one that remained intact for several decades. Soon, a line of high-performance powertrain options were developed and made available specifically targeted towards NASCAR competition. Consistent sales increases and growing market shares quickly followed, and despite GM's adoption of the AMA racing ban in 1957, Pontiac continued to emphasize performance. Developed as a traffic-generator for Pontiac dealers, the 1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible was a truly limited production car, with just 630 units produced. Unveiled to the public in December of 1956, the Bonneville Convertible was also the rarest Pontiac built at the time. With a lofty base price of $5,782.00, the Bonneville came equipped with virtually every accessory Pontiac offered. In fact, there was only one way you could get it: fully loaded. Air conditioning and an externally mounted spare were the only available options. The Bonneville's other true distinction was in the area of high performance. Contemporary published reports estimated the fuel-injected engine's horsepower to be somewhere between 295 and 310. Meanwhile, Pontiac never released a specific rating for this engine, simply stating that its output was "in excess of 300 horsepower". Despite their size and bulk, the Bonneville proved effective when put to the test, reaching 60 miles per hour in 8.1 seconds from a standing start. The marketing plan for the debut of the Bonneville was also unique. Each dealer in the United States was allocated just one car to sell, which earned Pontiac a great deal of publicity. While Pontiac buyers realized that it meant something to have a fuel-injected engine, it really meant something to own a fuel-injected Pontiac Bonneville Convertible. The 1957 Bonneville Convertible offered is finished in Kenya Ivory with a Tartan Red interior. This fine example is presented in showroom condition. Befitting its top-line status, this particular car is very well-equipped with a Wonderbar AM radio, a deluxe steering wheel, a padded dash, the mirror group, a clock, cowl vent chrome trim, custom wheel discs, continental kit, and wide whitewall tires. In addition, the Bonneville is complete with the total power group, including a power-operated convertible top, a power antenna, power steering, power brakes, power windows, and an eight-way power-operated seat. One of the true automotive icons of the 1950s, this fuel-injected Bonneville is also one of the rarest cars of the era. A well-known and beautifully restored example, this is one fine classic car.
