Yes they did! Fuel injection was only available on the Bonneville from 19757-58. When first introduced in 1957, the Bonneville cost almost as much as a Cadillac. Only 630 '57 Bonnevilles were made that year, making them one of the most desirable / collectible Pontiacs ever. The fuel injection engine was standard for '57 and an optional motor in '58. By '59, fuel injection was gone, but the 389 was introduced.

For '57, the 347 was the displacement for fuel injected motor. In '58, displacement was up to 370 cubes on the F.I. motor.

Yes it is true. All 630 were fuel injected convertibles. This meant that each Pontiac dealer was allocated one Bonneville each to sell that year. Each Bonneville was fully equipped with a bevy of standard equipment, such as power steering, power brakes, Wonderbar radio with electric antenna, leather seating surfaces, power seat, and the unique-to-Bonneville 347-cubic-inch fuel-injected engine rated at 315 horsepower
