The Pontiac Bonneville was built by the Michigan based Pontiac car manufacturer from 1957 to 2005.The Bonneville was classed as a full sized car, with the exception of a brief period of mid-size between 1982 and 1986. The brand was introduced as a limited production performance convertible in 1957 and was one of the largest – and heaviest - Pontiacs ever built, being 220.7 inches long and with a width of 80.7 inches.
The second generation Bonneville, which was launched in 1959 added two new variants to those already available but it is the elegant two-door coupé body style that we have chosen for our newly tooled Pontiac.
For our fourth release, it now takes on a more sober look in dramatic black with the upper half masked white in a closed format. In contrast, the interior seating is moulded in flame red. Registered IND-59 NE1588, the number plate has the words Lincoln Year printed in black along the bottom edge. The same level of chrome abounds with the Pontiac Bonneville name printed across the boot and along the tailfins. And we love the whitewall tyres which have become standard in this era of American motoring.
This latest 1:87 addition joins the Oxford range, great for collectors and HO scale modellers.
