800 Derita Road, Ste. A
The 1963 Pontiac Bonneville was the king of the road. So you know it's something quite special to find a highly original example that has been exceptionally maintained and respected over its ultra-low 31,500-mile life.
Yes, you are reading the mileage correctly. This car has averaged barely over 550 miles annually. That kind of little use combined with great care is why this coupe is such a crisp and complete example today. And with the special design, we understand why a car like this would be cherished. 1963 was the first year for the now-iconic stacked headlight design. You can see it so well because all the bright work seems to be centered around it. The bold chrome bumper cradles the bottom, and the grille and sweeping side trim are almost like arrows pointing towards the vertical headlights. Out back is even more cohesive chrome with one of the best form-fitting bumpers that blends seamlessly into the hint of tailfin. The factory-correct saddle bronze paint has been given one professional respray later in life, and that really helps keep this hardtop looking like a true time capsule.
This exceptional feeling continues inside. Such low mileage means little seat time, and so this highly original interior remains deep, dark, and crisp. Everything has been treated with great care, right down to the clear windows. Plus, there's plenty of room for family and friends, so you get to share this nice presentation any time you want. You're going to love slipping behind the steering wheel and gazing at the dash that's as long as the horizon. Not only is the artful trim still shining brightly, but also this is complete, right down to all the details. The translucent steering wheel inserts, hint of wood on the lower dash, and much more give you that ideal feeling of '60s luxury. Even the original AM radio is still on display.
On a car with so much originality thus far, it's great to have what's believed to be the original V8 still under the hood. Fans of the GTO recognize the Pontiac 389 cubic-inch motor, and it's a great powerplant to have here, too. This even has a four-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust. But this one is really about effortless cruising. The engine runs smooth, and you have easy shifting of the automatic transmission (also believed original.) There's even power steering and power brakes to keep this Bonneville cruising the boulevard.
Complete with title documentation, this is a low-mileage time capsule example of one of the best Pontiac designs ever. Something this special rarely stays available for long, so don't miss out. Call now!
