Danbury Mint / 1959 Pontiac Bonneville - Convertible / Preview Society / 1:24th Scale

Cameo Ivory

The texture of the top-grade Morrokide-accented leather front bucket seats and the pattern of the distinctive pleating will bring you back to 1959.

Wonderfully true-to-life, the remarkably detailed engine features a removable air cleaner, all the better to see the trio of throaty two-barrel carburetors.

Scale 1:24; 9-1/2" in length

  Pontiac was facing a triple threat in 1959: a stodgy, conservative image, a downturn in sales, and sleek, seductive styling from cross-town rivals.  GM's designers and marketers reacted to these challenges brilliantly with the incredible new lower and longer Bonneville. The first of the"Wide-Track" Pontiacs offered drivers a wider stance and lower center of gravity for a smoother ride, especially when cornering.  And under the hood another Poncho first the premier appearance of the famed 389 V-8.  This "Tempest 420" powerplant sporting triple two-barrel carbs was good for 315hp. Combined with the "Wide Track" stance, it sent the Bonneville rocketing down the road with authority.
