Very cool story.  My Dad had a 60 and was my 1st automotive CRUSH.  Loved that car.

He must be on the mend, there’s room for Jello and beer! Steak and kidney pie is next I reckon.

Glad to see your spirits are improving every day.

Kiwi. '59 and later Pontiacs were all called "Wide Track" because Pontiac's cars were slgithly wider than their sister divisions and therefore handled a little bit better. "Wide Track" was turned into a very success marketing campaign for decades. Heck Pontiac even broguht iit back for use on the Gramd Prix GTP.

That said, I was confused when you mentioned that Rock Auto would have different ("wide track") axles for the Bonneville other than the standard 29 7/8" axle shaft. Now if you look at a '64 Chevy Biscayne/Belair, they have 28 7/8" axles. So you can see that the Pontiac's stock diff is two inches wider stock than the Chevy's. So perhaps that is what Rock Auto might be refering to.
