  • Pontiac had a major change for the 1959 model year, the introduction of “Wide Track.” The front and rear tread dimensions were extended by more than four inches, putting the wheels closer to the corners of the car. This was accomplished by reducing side overhang so that they were not as narrow as the 1958s, but no wider overall than the 1959 Cadillacs, Buicks, or Oldsmobiles. The common interpretation is that Wide Track was intended to improve handling, but those who worked on the design have a different story. Historians Jan Norbye and Jim Dunne have quoted Pontiac stylist Jack Humbert as saying that Wide Track was “to make it look right…it was a combination of having to put the wheels farther apart in order to give the car the right proportions.” Also, 1959, marked the first year of Pontiac’s split grille which was to become a trademark of the brand until its passing some 60 years later. A total of 11,426 top-of-the-line Bonneville convertibles were produced in 1959; far fewer with the Tri-power carburetion and bucket seats, such as seen with this car.

    The magnificent 1959 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible featured here is finished in a factory-correct color combination of Mandalay red with the gorgeous silver/red/white tricolor interior and white convertible top. This incredible Bonneville Convertible was produced in the Los Angeles plant and remained in Southern California its entire life; having only three owners from new! This multi-first-place show winner has won the coveted AACA Grand National first-place award, as well as AACA Judges Award for best to show and many more. Just released from over 40 years of collector ownership, this Bonneville Convertible is the one to add to any premier collection. We are extremely proud to offer what we believe to be one of the very best examples on the market today, for the most astute collector investor or enthusiast who demands nothing but the best!

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
