What a beautiful car, stunningly captured in this photo!!! This is a Reader’s Ride and it is a 1960 Bonneville Convertible sent in by Mark Deutsch!

In 1960, the broad split grille and “twin-fin” rear fenders of the 1959 were replaced by a vee’d grille and rocket-tube taillights, but thin-pillar hardtop roof-lines, vast glass areas, and sporty vinyl interiors (with individual “buckety” seats on some two-doors) were featured throughout. Pontiac enlarged its 1955 V-8 yet again, this time to 389 cubes. Fuel injection was gone, but Bonneville offered up to 348 horses with Tri-Power carburetion, a returning and still fairly popular option.
