Re: 1966 Pontiac Executive (bonneville wannabe??)
Alot of parts were interchangable from drivetrain to interior parts on both cars. There was also a Parissane and Catalina line. Just different Options. I have been a big fan and pontiac collector since the 1970'* and have had several GTO'*. and in 1964 that was the mark of the opening of the GTO based on the Executive/Bonneville line production cars with 389 tri-power set-ups. The Bonnevilles were loaded with Power windows and locks and sometimes power steering and brakes. While the Paissane and Catalinas were based models cars without them. Bonnevilles were also produced in 1956 - 2005.

I did a little research and from my understanding there was a 1966 Pontiac Star Chief Executive. Then from 1967-1970 They were produced. Executive was actually the denomination for the option package. Then in 1971 The executive was discontinued and the bonneville is what replaced it. This may be covered on this page somewhere already. I guess what im getting at is from what i read the Executive was the mid priced option of the same years Basically there was three option packages Catalina Executive and Bonneville. So in closing if i could get this car for 1300 dollars (still runs) and restore it i basically have the poor mans bonneville of those years. Im seriously considering doing it. Any suggestions or comments or help would be greatly appreciated.
Info about cars would help
How interchangable are the parts between the executive and the bonneville or if they are at all.
If anyone is familar what kind of typical problems did the 400 v8 have if any.
Thanks in advance
