the bonneville is an H body. the park ave is a C body.

they are almost identical. i believe them to be the same untill the back end.
The '96 Park is an H body, too. The new-for-'98 Park is a C-body.
did not know that. thats weird, so they changed the p/a from a C body, to H body, and then back to a C body again?

I was thinking the '97+ Park Ave was a G body...

Park Avenue has always been a C-body in FWD configuration. My old 1995 Bonneville/Park Avenue FSM'* indicated the Park Avenue and Olds 98 were C-bodies.
Still very little differences compared to the H-body -one was the wheelbase was a little longer IIRC, and the overall length is a little more but I could be wrong.

Just like the 00+ bonneville bing an H body still, the newer parks are still C bodies.. But both of them iirc use the G underpinnings

The 87-99 Bonneville H and Buicl Lesabre H are the same as well as the olds LS-LSS 88...

The olds C body 98 was dropped after a certain year...

The park was a C body through 96 iirc and the it was the new C for 97...
