Just arrived from a private Collection…….I am offering for your consideration what could possibly be the cleanest most desirable 1977 Pontiac Bonneville in existence! I am listing this beauty for a close friend and fellow Pontiac enthusiast. Let me begin by saying that I have been a diehard Pontiac collector/restorer for more than 45 years. I have inspected and driven this Bonneville and find it to represent a level of authenticity and preservation not often seen in the classic car world. A true 44 year step back in time.
Based on the unique optioning I would speculate that this was an “ordered” car when new. Equipped as follows
350 cubic inch 4 barrel “true Pontiac” engine, backed by a Turbo 350 automatic transmission.
3.08 Positraction rear axle.
Air Conditioning, No excuses, ICE COLD!
AM/FM Stereo radio , sounds great. With correct operating Power antenna.
Rare rally gauge cluster . Clock keeps perfect time.
Cruise control, body color Rally mirrors, rally wheels, fender skirts.
Odometer reads 54685 miles . Based on condition and drive quality is believed to be accurate.
And in my opinion the best color combination , of charcoal grey and argent silver separated by red accent stripes. What really sets this Bonne off and makes it “pop” is the lack of a vinyl top.
Condition wise this car is crisp! Tight and smooth. It runs and drives perfect! No excuses. Starts with the flick of the key, idles smooth and quiet. Very responsive. Trans shifts smooth. Steering and suspension are tight. Brakes are smooth and positive. Recently replaced items include A/C compressor, water pump, master cylinder and muffler. You WILL not spend a dime . Tires are excellent Good Year 215/75-15. Spare appears to be original .
Cosmetically it is a real head turner. I find what I believe to be 95% original paint. Under close scrutiny and in the right light there appears to be a blend in the charcoal paint toward the rear of the drivers door. Possible scratch repair. Difficult to see in normal conditions. Does not show up in photos. No aging or crazing in paint. Glossy and smooth. The chrome and bright work is amazing. Like jewelry. This car was certainly garaged and sheltered from the elements its entire life. The driver quarter window trim has a couple of light scratches adjacent to the door pillar. Possibly from a lockout tool. Very minor. Interior is immaculate. No wear, stains or fading. Ashtray has never been used. Factory floor mats are still in place. There are shadows in some of the photos from a cloudy day. Not fade or flaws!
In summary, classic car prices are escalating at record levels. These mid to late 70’s examples are starting to follow close behind. Don’t miss this opportunity to own this unique piece of Pontiac history. It is an absolute joy to drive and a real attention getter everywhere it goes. I have set a very reasonable reserve for a classic of this caliber. Summer is almost here and this baby is ready to cruise!
