Full-size Pontiacs were redesigned for the 1963 model year with a pair of vertically stacked headlamps at either end of the grille and parentheses-style tail lamps at the back. With the overall styling getting more squared lines, the overall look was longer and lower.

Pick of the Day is a 1963 Pontiac Bonneville convertible, being sold by its private owner, who notes the car has traveled only 82,056 miles since new, including being driven last year from Atlanta, Georgia, to Edwards, Colorado, “with no issues.”

The advertisement on ClassicCars.com notes that the Bonneville is “tri-black,” with recently detailed original black paint, black leather interior and a new black power convertible top with a black boot “in excellent shape, works/locks great.”

Other recent improvements are a new heater core, new power brakes and new 15-inch whitewall radial tires (including a new spare). The car also has power steering and power windows.

“Always garaged/covered,” the seller notes.

“Runs at 75 mph highway speeds, strong at 9,000 feet, pulls the mountain passes with ease,” the seller assures.

Power comes from a 389 cid V8 linked to a Hydra-matic automatic gearbox.

The asking price, which includes two unfinished fender skirts and a 1963 Pontiac shop manual and new car cover, is $28,500.
