In Bonnevilles, that'* not the case. From our experience and knowledge on this Forum, we have yet to see a SINGLE FE1 equipped car with ELC. And have yet to see a single FE2 car without.
I will stand by my original statement, regardless of how the “majority of Bonneville’*” are equipped! Any GM car offering these RPO options, could be ordered and equiped with FE1 suspension and ELC, or an FE2 with ELC, or without. (This would include the Bonneville)!
I do not doubt what is said about how the Bonneville’* are equipped, however, it is unfortunate that no more were equipped with FE1 and ELC. Many GM H body cars (LeSabre & Olds 8
do come with this combination and it does make a nice smooth ride and reasonably good handling. I guess that is one reason the Bonneville has never been know for its “ride quality”!
BTW: It might be more accurate to say; We have yet to see a SINGLE FE1 equipped “Bonneville” with ELC, or a single FE2 equipped “Bonneville” without it, however, that does not mean that they do not exist! Time for a survey?
