EXTREMELY CLEAN, VERY NICE PAINT, FACTORY A/C CAR, PROTECT-O-PLATE AND MORE
Where has this Bonneville been for the last 45 years? If you want what is likely the most perfectly-preserved 1969 Bonneville, loaded with all the options, this is it. Showing just 20,582 original miles, it looks more like 45 days old and is a slam-dunk in preservation-class competition. It's also one heck of a cool piece of luxury muscle.
Yes, that's the same Limelight Green you could get on your new Firebird, and on the big Bonneville Sedan it definitely looks 1960s funky. The 4-door looks about a mile long, but the proportions are right and the Pontiac touches give it a sporty attitude to go with its luxury features. And when I say it looks fresh, I mean it. That's original paint that shines like it was still sitting in the showroom. There are no parking lot dings, no cloudy areas where someone got too aggressive with the buffer, and every panel fits together exactly the way the assembly line workers put them back in 1969. The characteristic Pontiac split grille shines with brilliant factory chrome that isn't tarnished or pitted, and the rocker panel cladding remains bright with crisp Bonneville lettering. Fender skirts were all the rage in the late-60s, and these fit well and show none of the usual issues that lesser cars might. I simply can't get over how nice this car really is.
The interior is equally impressive and equally 1960s cool, with kitchy brocade fabrics and more gold-green colors. Wide bench seats provide room for six where nobody will be complaining, and really, the preservation is incredible. There's not even any stretching in the driver's seat area! Matching carpets with color-coded mats featuring the Pontiac chevron emblem are part of the package, and the only possible demerit is that the steering wheel's rim and center section have aged at slightly different rates. The dash puts all the controls within easy reach of the driver, including the factory A/C and original AM radio. Reasonably plausible burled walnut appliques look sharp and vivid, clearly never having spent time in the sun, and with supple weather-stripping, it still seals up like a new car. The massive trunk is fully upholstered and carries what is likely its original spare tire, a full jack assembly, and even original decals.
The top Pontiac motor is found under the hood of this top-of-the-line Bonneville, a 428 cubic inch mill with 4-barrel carburetion and enough torque to pull a locomotive. The engine bay is immaculately presented, and that's even original, factory-applied engine enamel still covering the block. Finishes, accessories, hardware, and markings are all as they were in 1969, plus a few notes on the radiator shroud regarding maintenance over the years. It rumbles with a great V8 sound despite the single exhaust system (which is also stock), and power brakes and steering were, of course, standard equipment. A TH400 3-speed automatic spins a highway-friendly 12-bolt rear end, making this a fantastic long-distance cruiser. The shocks and 225/75/15 tires are just about the only non-original items on the chassis. Wow!
Documented with the original Protec-O-Plate, finance documents, bank draft and key tag, this is a stunning piece of original Pontiac history for a price that's hard to believe. Call today!
