This is a 1964 Pontiac Bonneville two door hardtop. This early muscle car has three double barrel carburetors! As you can imagine the car really moves. The interior is as comfortable as a living room making this Bonneville a super fun cruiser. You can get 5 or 6 of your friends in this thing. Actually you could probably get 5 or 6 of your friends in the TRUNK! Wow. Boy vintage cars are great aren't they?
The body is nice and straight and the car is extremely solid. This Pontiac spent most of its life in Arizona. I would guess that it was stored indoors mostly because the interior really looks sharp -- it's not super sun baked like many desert cars.
The odometer shows 78,027 and the two previous owners (and I) believe this to be actual mileage. The brake pedal and the condition of the driver's seat and interior look like that of a low-mileage car. The ride is nice, smooth and relaxing and the steering is responsive and easy.
The engine number is 9770276 and it is likely a 389 with 330 HP. The engine was recently rebuilt by the previous owner and the paint on the block still looks fresh.
1964 was a great year for the Bonneville. There are so many bells and whistles on this thing that I'm surprised it doesn't have an option to wash itself. There is an inside side mirror adjuster, 3-way power front seat, air conditioning (which isn't currently operating), there is a vintage electric brake controller (probably for a trailer), and there are dome lights all over the place. There is even a huge dome light in the trunk! That light looks like a huge camping lantern but the interior dome lights are very classy and unique. Here is what another enthusiast emailed me about the light in the trunk: "That "Huge Camping Lantern" in the trunk is a very cool, unique Pontiac feature: a reel-out trunk light. Available for the trunk, engine compartment or both, it has enough cord wrapped up in the base to go half way around that 19 foot behemoth. I love those lights, and those cars." So this is a very unique classic and a great investment opportunity. The paint is chipped in quite a few spots so you could increase your investment substantially with a quick re-spray.
There is no mistaking the lines and tower headlights of this early Bonneville. With a rebuilt tri-power engine and a solid Arizona body you really need not look any further if you want a great classic, luxurious 60's sedan.
