Default a Rare Car I found

I came across this guy on car domain with a 1995 SE Supercharged Bonneville, according to him there was only 367 supercharged SE model cars built in 1996 and a total of 8,000 equiped with the SLE package but does not know of how many 1995 SE with L-67 supercharged models, would anybody know of this. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/353368 . Now this would be a car to own and keep in the garage for a long long time till it becomes a collectors item, unless its a collector item already.

Look in my signature. Car on the left. Perhaps the rarest yet. It'* the only one we've seen with FE2, ELC, and CCR.

Yup. I have one.

And TIM at that link is a former (retired, awaiting his return to the job) Moderator from here.
He'* member #184. I'm #178.

FE2 is the SSEi suspension. Most SE'* and SLE'* have FE1, softer ride.

CCR are the electronic struts. Computer Command Ride. You can select sport or touring ride.

ELC is electronic (air) Level Control on the rear. I also have the trunk inflator that goes with it.

My car also has dual outlet exhaust like an SSEi, but the tips turn down before coming through the rear skirt.

My SLE(supercharged) also has the sunroof, variable effort T2V steering, and virtually every other SSEi option EXCEPT:

blue tinted side mirrors/heated (I have them for the swap)
Auto-dim rear mirror (already converted to it)
Boost gauge (already added it)
HUD (have all the parts)
SSEi lower body cladding and front and rear bumpers (not converting those).

This Techinfo article (Bonneville Production Numbers) was written by TIM (link above) and I at different times. Part of our research was made through Pontiac (they worked for 3 days on it per our request).

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...e=article&k=21

Enjoy. Bidding will now begin on my very rare collectors item. It'* commonly believed that the Supercharged SLE'* in 95, 96, and 97 are rarer than the 40th anniversary SSEi'*.

Wow there you have it, but the information for the 1995 still is in the air on how many were made with L-67 option. But the information is very helpful and I will do more research in finding out how many SE bonne'* came with L-67'*.

You won't find it. We got our numbers from PONTIAC. They have no record of how many were made. If they don't, nobody does.

I've got one here for sale. It'* been slightly modded. Ok, so there are a couple extensive mods, but they could be easily converted back to stock (I've installed 96-99 style trunklid and tail lights).

It also has the factory chrome rims off my 99 SSEi, but I still have my original gold crosslace rims.
As for rare, I wonder how many had as few options as this. The only options that were on this car when I got it were:
leather bucket seats
steering wheel controls for the cassette radio
16" gold crosslace wheels
and the trunk spoiler. All of which are the basic SLE package required to get the L67 motor in the SE.
Curb wieght: 3440 lbs compared to the 3640 lbs my brothers 1997 SSEi weighs, and he doesn't have the heavy lumbar seats, CCR, or chrome torque stars that would fully load his car.

No traction control
No ECC
No FE2
No CCR
No Keyless entry
No power passenger seat
No CD player
No # 5, 6, 7, or 8 speakers ...aka base Bonneville radio with 4 speakers and steering wheel controls)
No Illuminated entry
No Twilight Sentinal
No Moonroof
No T2V rack-and-pinion

Here'* a couple quic snaps from this morning of my 1995 SLE SC:

As you can see, they're somewhat rare, but not unheard of.
