FinALLY after about 6 years of falling in love with the 65 bonnie and then spending about 2-3 yrs searching I have found a bonneville to buy. Went to oregon to inspect it and we settled on a deal. I'm so sad it will be over 3 weeks before i drive it again (being shipped to home, i'm not home for another 3 or so weeks!)
Its a Bonnie 389 Convertible
Red outside and in, off-white top.
Few options, just regular Am radio, regular antenna, no AC, manual windows. Has a true dual exhaust with a glasspack on each side.
Not a lick of rust of body work that I could detect.
Does have original 8-lugs on it.
The pics I have of it are sorta bad but the car looks 300x better in person. here are links to the pics:
The pictures don't show just how flawless the body is and how nice the paint is. And the color is a little lighter red than what the pics show. It'* right between a HOT convertible red and an elegant burgandy.
What do you all think?
Don't know about the final drive ratio on it.
