Description for Pontiac Bonneville 1963

1963 Pontiac Bonneville convertible. This car was part of a large private collection stored indoors in California from 2003 to 2014. The car received extensive mechanical restoration during 2000 - 2002 consisting of a professional engine rebuild, ransmission rebuild, ront suspension rebuild, nd all new brake wheel cylinders at 92870 miles. A new convertible top motor, ylinders and dash switch were also added. Receipts for the mechanical rebuilds alone total over $10,000. The 389 4 bbl motor runs strong and is believed to be original, ith a block code of 36P (see photo). During this time the paint color was changed from white to a factory 1963 Bonneville color called Marlin Aqua, deep blue-green metallic with clear coat. Although this paint job is over 10 years old it appears as new and very show worthy. Look at the detail photos and you will see the laser straight body that required extensive block sanding and prep work, lus nicely painted door jambs etc. Interior is original with a generally good appearance, howing some wear to the leather inserts and someminor pull-apart of stitching. Dash pad appears to have been recovered. Door panels have holes cut for aftermarket speakers by previous owner (repro door panels available). Original chrome is very good to excellent, ith no or very minor fine pitting. Way above average.

Excellent original body, loors, loor braces, nd trunk. The rockers are 95% perfect, ut there is some rust bubbling in the bottom of the rockers below the rear windows (see photos). This should be an easy fix, ith paint repair edge covered by the rocker moldings. All lights, orn, ower top, ipers work. The original radio and clock do not work. It needs a trunk mat and there is no jack. It also needs an exhaust system (old rusty and rattles). During my ownership I have replaced the master cylinder, uel pump, hanged fluids, nd had a new professionally installed Electron top, ads, ack window, nd top well installed. Have all receipts.

This is an excellent car to upgrade to a very high $$ convertible. My reserve is less than it would cost to buy an unrestored car and restore to this level. A recent search of internet prices for restored cars ranged from $18K - $49K, nd earlier Bonneville convertibles are very high dollar cars. Selling only because I just purchased another very low mileage vintage convertible. Car is sold as is with no warranty, nd is located in Edmond, klahoma. I can work with overseas buyers if they make shipping arrangements to have the car picked up at my house. Check my Ebay feedback and thanks for viewing this auction.
