Welcome to the Bonneville Forum Steve. Great to see a new member with the older models I grew up learning to drive with. I wish I had a few around now. Unfortunately it took a long time for me to figure out how to drive fast AND keep fenders in good condition.

I've also done some damage in the past, but luckily it wasn't on a Pontiac very often.

Welcome Steve. Your love of vintage Bonnevilles brings an interesting aspect to our forum. We are putting together a database of specs on all the Bonneville generations and, if you don't mind, I'm going to tap into that extensive knowledge you have of the older versions.

Welcome, and let us know how we can help.

The 60 Bonneville is a 389 w/ 3 deuces. The 65 2+2 has a 400 or a 455 (I'll let you know when I get it), the 66 wagon has a factory 421 4bbl. The GP has a 400.
I used to have a 66 421 HO 4 speed 2+2.

Yes it did have a 421 originally, but that motor is long gone.

They were awesome torque monsters. Even without the 2 available HP upgrades, it put out a seemingly tame 338 HP, but @ 400+ ft/lbs somewhere in the 2000+ RPM range. It ran this iron beast in the 16'*, and you could burn the tires around the block. In High School I had a 64 Catalina 2dr with the 389. Always wanted it'* "big Brother"... LOL!
