Default 1963 Bonneville Limo

OK first post but here it goes.. I just bought a 63 Bonneville limo and I would like to see if anybody here knows how many where made? It was built by Superior Coach. I have paperwork from Pontiac and Superior But no one has been able to tell me how many where produced.. Searching online I have found someone making a statement that there where 12 made but I have also herd that there where 6 made. I'm just trying to complete the history on this car. It has been sitting for 30+ years and I'm going to do a resto mod to the car.... Thank you in advance..

Its against Bonneville Forum rules to tell as about a rare Bonneville and not post pics. Well, not against the rules, but you know what I mean.

Have you tried contacting Superior Coach?

I did a couple of Google searches and found one reference that there were only 69 1963 Pontiac Limo'* built by Superior Coach.

You might contact Superior Coach and see if they have any info for you.

I have contacted Superior They cold not help me much... They did tell me 69 Ambulances where made and the rest where Hurse'* that year for a total of 450 excludeing the limos.. Right now the car is in pretty rough shape but all the chrome and every other little part is still there.. the 389 runs I'm still going to go through it though.. it has 43000 miles..Except for the trunk rust there is no other rust in the car.. I want to do an air ride set up on it.. Does anyone know of a kit or company that would be able to help me? I also need a source for a front and rear window...

Go to Air Lift Company

You can go a google search for air suspension and get alot of different "universal" kits that will work for it. I used AirLift for my GXP. Good help and advice. And great Products, They are a leader and one of the originals in air suspension. Their universal front air struts are pretty straightforward. You will need to be or have a good mig welder to weld the mounting tabs to the airstruts. TYhe kits come with good instructions and they have good Tech Advice.
