The Last Poncho Vee: 1978 Pontiac Bonneville Brougham

The sixth generation Pontiac Bonneville might be just another hunk of junk from the malaise era, but today's example deserves a second look.  Why?  Check out that odometer reading.  Find this 1978 Pontiac Bonneville Brougham here on eBay bidding for $5,900 in Adena, OH with 5 days to go.


This Bonneville is not only the desirable Brougham model, but it has a ridiculously low 1900 miles on the odometer and looks almost new.   The 301 cubic inch V8 is the last in a long line of Pontiac V8s that started in 1955-- and it was discontinued after the 1981 model year.


The interior of this Brougham spec version looks just as good as the interior as the outside -- and wow! Feast your eyes on that light blue loose pillowed velour.

  1. Speaking of cream puffs, I can't stand the weird extra fluffy cushion on the top of the seats of G-body cars.

  2. This was our family car back in the late 80's, only it was the color of dried blood and had a Steiger Tractors sticker in the back window.
