Default 1965 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible

Pontiac'* were the 1965 Motor Trend Car of the Year. I bought and restored this convertible in 2000. It has a 389 4bbl, tilt wheel, power bench, two tone interior and load leveling shocks. Doesn't sound like much by today'* standards, but it was pretty loaded for 1965.

Yes, but they aren't automatic like newer systems. No on-board compressor. Just air shocks that you can inflate yourself. I have the original build sheet and this option is shown there.
