A heavily modified 1959 Pontiac Bonneville auctioned off by Barrett-Jackson with no reserve at Scottsdale Auction.
This eye-catching Pontiac was restored and modified by Airpark Motorsports in Scottsdale over the course of two years and is now powered by an Art Morrison chassis. As part of the restoration, it was also equipped with enhanced sprocket and pinion steering, Wilwood disc brakes, a 9-inch rear differential and coilover suspension on all four corners.
One part of the exterior that really stands out is the paint, which happens to be a shade of Porsche’s famous Riviera Blue, and to our great surprise, it actually fits a Pontiac nicely. Also found across the exterior are beautifully restored chrome body panels, including the fenders and trim around the headlights and windows. The car also sits on custom American Racing wheels with a chrome finish and wrapped in BF Goodrich Rival S tires.
A look inside the cabin reveals gorgeous tan leather and four bucket seats. All interior surfaces have been superbly restored, and Airpark Motorsports has outfitted it with a Rockford Fosgate sound system, Vintage Air climate control, power windows and power seats.
Under the hood is a 6.2L V8 engine mated to a 4L70E four-speed automatic transmission that sends power through the rear wheels.
Although the listing doesn’t provide any details on the cost of the restoration, it clearly wasn’t cheap and we expect the car to sell deep into the six-figure.
