This will let you cruise in style.

Pontiac really jumped ahead of the competition in the late 1950s when it came to dramatic styling, as evidenced by this big, beautiful, blue 1959 Pontiac Bonneville Sports Coupe. Already, Pontiac had restyled its lineup for 1958, so when the 1959 models put on display this Strato-Star design language, it understandably caused a huge stir.

There’s so much to love about how this classic car looks. The long and low body has won over many fans, along with the rear fins and that distinct split front grille. Of course, one of the most amazing things about this ride is all that glass. An expansive windshield and side windows without a B-pillar means you can just soak in your surroundings, making this the perfect vehicle for driving through beautiful scenery.

Cruising with this car is a dream for several more reasons. Pontiac widened the track by a full five inches, something the brand pushed big time in ads for years later. That helps with stability at high speeds and handling in general, making this Bonneville so relaxing to drive. That big 389ci V8 provides loads of smooth power, combining with an automatic transmission for worry-free operation. If you pop the hood, the engine compartment is absolutely spotless. Light blue paint on the engine block and valve covers combines with a chrome air cleaner cover, really making everything pop.

Just as distinct as the outside, the interior of this Pontiac shoots for the moon. Two-tone seats and door panels take you back to a time when the horrors of WWII were fading into the rearview mirror and America’s economy was absolutely booming. Brightwork on the door panels, dash, steering wheel, window frames, and more make it a cheerful place. All the factory switchgear and gauges are still in place, perfectly preserving the entire look and feel of this amazing vehicle.

This Bonneville is a tremendous representation of what America started cranking out in the age of optimism. If you want to become its next owner, talk to Autobarn Classic Cars.
