Car of the day – Custom 1958 Pontiac Bonneville Classic Sport Coupe 1920×1080 HD

The 1958 Pontiac Bonneville is powered by a 6.1-liter (6,100 cc) V8 engine which produces up to 300 hp (220 kW) at 4600 rpm.

This is quite a big automobile. It is not light at all, and its dimensions are not small either. However, it is quite a fast automobile. the 1958 Pontiac Bonneville can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in around 8 seconds. It also can reach a top speed of ~201 km/h (~125 mph). A standing quarter mile can be driven in 18.8 seconds at ~141.6 km/h (~88 mph).

Car’s dimensions: Wheelbase – 122 inches (3,099 mm); length – 211.7 inches (5,377 mm); width – 77.4 inches (1,966 mm).

Back in 1958, this car was available as a two-door hardtop or a convertible. It was available with the 3-speed manual Super Hydra-Matic transmission.

The total number of sold cars were 9,144 hardtops and 3,096 convertibles (1958 year models). This number was much better compared to the 1957 model sales number.

I bet many classic car lovers would love to own a car like this. Now, in 2014, it’s not easy to find such car in good condition and for a cheap price. If you have a deep pocket, you can get one of these, but the price can go quite high for it. The original price (MSRP) for a 1958 Pontiac Bonneville was ~3,000 USD ($). In 2012, a 1958 Pontiac Bonneville was sold for 121,000 USD ($). That obviously doesn’t mean that you should expect to spend the same amount of money if you want to get one of these cars, but you definitely can expect that it could cost you something near that price.
