My son and I had to take a trip from FL to CA for a surgery. We needed to stay for 2 weeks leaving us with some time on our hands. We came across this 1964 pontiac Bonneville on Facebook marketplace. It was only the second car we looked at and we were sold. After making a few calls to insurance and a shipper we closed the deal. The car was manufactured and located in CA for it’s whole life making it almost totally rust free. I still can’t imagine a car this old rust free. The car is so much fun to drive catching waves, smiles, and complements every time you drive it. Some people share stories of how either they, dad, mom, or grandmother had one. Amazing stories. One friend explained how his dad was the number 1 pontiac salesman in CA in the 60’s. His dad brought different Pontiac’s home every week allowing my friend to drive them all as a teenager. His dad also apparently was the first to implement car leasing. So with such a nice care what needs to be restored? On one hand it looks great with new paint but almost everything needs to be gone through and fixed. I was posting on Kiwi’s 64 restore link but realized i have too much to post and don’t want to overwhelm him. I have tried to take photo’s of everything i do so hopefully it will help others.
