1960 Bonne wagon

Recommended Posts

Sweet shape- needs whitewalls tho : the wagon single tails and the blackwalls make it look like a Cat.
No bargain there on the price however.

RE condition: agreed... but what is the significance, on any level, that the car was at Pike's Peak in '61? Unless it competed there, I fail to see it, and even then that's not worth another dollar in & of itself.

Oh, I agree.

It's just that the car's history is known that far back which I like. And the ad text seems to indicate a larger story, I like cars with a good story attached.

She's a tough old gal. I like her. The blackwalls add to her toughness. This is a working wagon, no need for whitewalls.

The car puts me in mind of a tough, independent, self-reliant, never-been-married, dignified great-aunt who totes a gun and knows all the best survival skills. Whitewalls are a distraction from the task at hand.

I can see fat waxy blackwalls on gloss-black steelies with poverties on a Ventura hardtop coupe with Tri-Ps, but blackwalls on a Bonneville Safari - I don't think so. You know its as wrong as whitewalls on a Spark.
