Default A couple of Questions

I have just bought a 1987 Bonneville, this thing is in mint condition and was babied by its previous owner. I have just have a couple of questions.

1. What is the Horsepower, Top Speed, and Gas Mileage?
2. Can a Spoiler for a 1994 Bonneville fit mine? ( I am willing to manuelly modify it)
3. Can anyone show me a picture with an 1987 Bonneville with a body kit?

Please respond soon.
Thanks in Advance.

Not too many 87s - 150hp
Specify yr and trim in your signature and the guys with all the knowledge will help you out.

1. as stated above 150hp
2. more than likely, no. get a spoiler from a 88-91 SSE, it looks really good on the 87-91 body styles.
3. the only body kit youre gonna find is the factory one from the 1988-1991 SSE. pics are plentiful in the your ride section, including ones from my now sold 90 sse. look for the topic called A few pics of the SSE *video fixed* or something like that lol

also to add, the highest speed ive heard of from this generation of bonnevilles is about 230km/h or so. They do not have a speed limiter, so the only thing stopping you is that itll take a very long time to acelerate to that speed, and over 160 these cars get kinda light and floaty in the front end.

p.*. check my cardomain! (shameless advertisement :P)

I was looking end the glove box of my car, and found this is actually an LE 1988 Bonneville. Can someone post a website where I can order a body-kit and a spoiler at? The only one I have found is a universal body kit that fits an 88.
Thanks in Advance

As stated pretty much the only body kit is the factory SSE kit. Usually you have to find one in a wrecking yard, or someone parting out their car. I have yet to find a website that sell a complete factory SSE body kit, but not matter, I have my 90 SSE that is complete, I do have spare body kit parts from a black one ( missing both bumper covers), but I may soon have a 3rd with the car I am looking at buying.


I know there was a member here at one point that was trying to sell a factory body kit but no one wanted it.

Best bet is to find a junker and get the body parts. A lot of the guys, including myself have spare parts also.
