Custom 2 Door Hardtop
This beautiful California car has been stunningly customized with a true “Street Rod” look, while retaining it’s basic classic “50’s Fin” roots. This custom was built on a very solid, totally original, and well preserved 59 Bonneville with only 33,000 pampered miles on the odometer. The car had been garaged all its life and was in near perfect condition before the custom work was done. The original interior is showroom fresh, it has not been restored, only cleaned and preserved. The exterior was also extremely clean, no rust, or accidents in 47 years.

This incredible clean original Bonneville was then customized with a lowered Air-Ride Technologies suspension, and custom 18” front and rear wheels by Budnik with BFGoodrich 245/40ZR 18 (front), 475/40ZR 18 radial tires. All distracting chrome emblems, mirrors, etc. were removed. An Alpine CD stereo system was tucked out of site for listening to those great 60’s tunes, and the 315 horsepower produced by the 389cid motor is audibly enhanced thru the Flowmaster exhaust system.

Known History

Bonneville History

The year 1959 was a breakout year for Pontiac. The Bonneville played an important part that year in the introduction of two of Pontiac’s greatest marketing inspirations — the split grille and the Wide Track slogan. The latter was not just ad copy, either, as Pontiac pushed its wheels further out toward the fenders than anyone else and created what were considered to be the best-cornering full-size cars in the industry.. 1959 also introduced new engines claimed to be “The most Modern in the Industry”. The Tempest 420 (389 cu in) engine was available with a two-barrel, 4-barrel, or optional Tri-power (3 2-barrel) carburetion that year. All of the motors could be coupled to an improved Super Hydra-matic transmission.
