1961 Pontiac Catalina Hardtop Yel OT060113
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!





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.
