well either its a 91 or a 92...because in 92 the bonnie took a drastic change in the exterior styling of the body. 91'* had the more squarish style while 92 started the rounder shaped bodies.

and im not sure about the HUD being swapped in....i believe you have to have a special windshield for it? and the hole in the dash for it to display on the windshield from?
Please correct me if im wrong, this is just what ive picked up so far....

Yep, the Bonneville took a major leap forward in 92 from 91. If you look at my signature pic, there is a 91 SE off to the left of my 89, the car in the middle is a 94 (same body style as the 92).

The HUD was also a major feature added to SSE/i models in 92+. There is a conversion kit to install it on non-HUD cars, but I have been told that HUD windshields are VERY expensive. It is possible, with $$$$...then again anything is possible with $$$$

Like an L67 SC swap into an 89

haha 94'* are tight...but yah huds are expensive to add on and plus all the work, you can have one without the special windshield it just wont show up as well but you can still see it but still its best to have the real windshield.

I think that I have seen an aftermarket kit for sale. The wiring would be the hardest part, especially for someone not very good with electrical stuff.
