RealRides of WNY - 1962 Bonneville

Passed this 1962 Pontiac Bonneville a few weeks ago in Fonthill, Ontario. It’s obviously been around — on the front is an Alberta license plate, while the space on the back bumper is occupied by an Arizona Historical Vehicle tag. Looks like it’s also made a pass through a paint booth at some point, as that sure isn’t a 1962 Pontiac factory color. It’s very close to a 1970 Dodge Charger Daytona we recently saw which was painted Chrysler’s F6 Spring Green Metallic. This Bonneville most likely started its life here in the US, as the Canadian lineup didn’t have a Bonneville. Up north the top model was the Parisienne, which was the Pontiac body/interior mounted to a Chevrolet frame/powertrain — which explains the absence of the words Wide Track in the Canadian Pontiac literature and advertising. The wheel covers, I’m guessing here, look to be c1980 Pontiac, possibly mid-size or Firebird.
