Pontiac only produced 630 copies of its Bonneville convertibles in 1957 with the 347-cid, 315-hp Strato-Streak fuel-injected V-8 engine. The Kenya Ivory example on offer here also features GM’s Strato-Flight HydraMatic transmission, padded dash, clock, cowl vent, whitewall tires, deluxe steering wheel and Wonderbar signal-seeking radio. Power equipment includes the top, eight-way front seat, windows, antenna, steering and brakes. The fuel-injected Bonneville was marketed as a high-performance car with luxury amenities. This limited-edition ’57 Bonneville is the recipient of a recent frame-off restoration.
