1965 Pontiac BonnevilleNO RESERVE 1965 Pontiac Bonneville convt. project.
Factory 4 speed, Saf-T-Trak, A/C, 8 lug wheels.
Interesting optioned car... Bluemist Slate with black leather bucket seat/console interior, but
no power windows, power seat, power locks, or tilt wheel.
Needs TOTAL restoration, including floorpan and trunk floor replacement.
Rust is limited to sheet metal. Frame is sound with only surface rust. Minor rust-thru on radiator support underneath battery tray. Quarter panels need some work/repair.Original front seat frames were shot/discarded, but the leather upholstery was kept for future templates. A good pair of '64 buckets are included.
389/333 HP engine (exclusive to full-size pontiac with manual trans) original to car. Engine turns but binds up before doing a full rotation, as if a piston is hitting a stuck valve.. Not an abrupt stop. A Muncie long tail trans is included, but parts are missing and the case has had some repairs in the past. Shift linkage is missing, but a restored stock Hurst shifter is included.
Car is about 80-85% complete. All exterior trim is there and in good condition. Partial disassembly has been started, primarily to the interior, and door/quarter panel internals. All parts removed are tagged and identified. Convt. top frame is still installed.
Spare parts include a decent complete '66 floorpan, '65 bucket seat mounts (rare!) a LH door shell and a LH rocker molding.
Hundreds of pics available to parties who are seriously interested.
Very rare car deserving a new life.. Big work, bigger reward.
