Wheels in the Grass

’65 Pontiac Bonneville, Sanborn, N.Y.

Here’s a 1965 Pontiac Bonneville convertible resting comfortably in the front yard of a Sanborn home. This was the year the entire Pontiac line was named Motor Trend magazine’s Car of the Year, which was a pretty big deal back then. It’s unusual with that red top (which needs a bit of repair) and those 60s’ trendy red-line tires and “Baby Moon” hubcaps. Standard engine in the Bonnie was the 389 cu. in. V-8, mated to a three-speed column-mounted shifter — although I’m sure most were automatics. The Bonnie convertible, of which 21,050 were produced, listed for $3,594. The Catalina 2-door hardtop was the top-selling full-sized Pontiac in 1965, at 92,009 units produced.
