1961 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE CONVERTIBLE -- THE SPLIT GRILLE IS BACK
Redesigned Pontiacs this year brought about the split grill look once again
after the 1960 model eliminated that look. The '59 was the first split
grille which was a look that eventually morphed into the Pontiac beak in
later years. This new design also promoted the " wide track " look that
was featured in tire commercials with a cartoonish Pontiac. All Pontiac
models were popular this year and started with the low-end Tempest, then
Catalina, Ventura, Star Chief, and the top of the line Bonneville.
Bonneville models included the Custom Safari 4 door wagon, Sport Hardtop
coupe, Vista hardtop sedan, and the convertible coupe as this example is
shown. A Bonneville convertible weighs3,905 lbs., and cost $3,476 new.
This Pontiac has the V8, 389 cid with tri-power, ( three 4 barrels ), with
- get this - 348 hp. See, this is another example of how Pontiac
contributed not only to GM coffers but an iconic automotive historical
footnote. Watch this Pontiac dream car. To me it's just a fantastic
looking car. I believe the price tag of nearly 59 thousand also reflects
the favorable collectability of this beauty. Some lucky person bought this
Pontiac some time ago. Sorry. Thanks very much for viewing this 1961
Pontiac Bonneville Tri-Power convertible.

Pontiac was at the height of its styling...lots of great things would
happen for the marque during this decade! The clean modern lines went well
with modern architecture...the glass wall houses and the more modest one
story ranchers. Seems to me that "modern" style had its fingers in
everything that people used, from their ball point pens to the kitchen
appliances, to the cars they drove and the houses they lived in. Of
course this car shows how adaptable it was to racing!
