1961 Pontiac Bonneville Overview

1961 Pontiac Bonneville

The Pontiac Bonneville was turning into a popular car, thanks to its luxury trappings.  Though it was Pontiac's most expensive offering, it touted its performance capabilities for personal or family use, by offering different models for different tastes -- the snazzy convertible, practical sedan, kid-oriented station wagon, or sporty coupe.  In the 1961 Bonneville, the split grille returns after a brief hiatus.  The split is marked by a bold V-shaped extension of the deck lid adorned by Pontiac's arrowhead logo.  In the back, the Bonneville name sat between 3 taillights on either side.
The new Trophy V8 engine and the unique wide track design were used as the big selling points for the 1961 Bonneville.  Matched with a 4-speed Hydramatic, the rear-wheel drive Bonny hit a range of horsepowers depending on whether it had a 2-barrel, 4-barrel, or the TriPower (three 2-barrels) carburetor.  It needed a big block engine, because its full-size body weighed almost two tons.
The sedan, convertible, coupe, and wagon featured carpeted and wood-trimmed interiors.  Leather seats were optional (standard in the convertible), as were power windows, locks, and seats.
