Your bidding on a very rare sport coupe 61 bonneville.  This car needs a complete restoration and I am not implying any type of warranty.  So what I have is a 2 owner car that is very fixable.  The car does have some rust but is a very good start.  The car had a bad paint job in 1980 and now the car is showing it.  All of the 61's have the same rust issues such as rockers, trunk floor, pillar and such.  As you will see not real bad but will need attention.  The car sports, remote mirror, power bench, power windows, AC, day and night mirror, and such. The car has been up dated with a 69 firebird HO 400 motor that has only about 500 miles on it and turbo 400 trans.  The wheels are 17 in with new eagle tires.  The car does run and drive but has been off the road for 25 years so I would not trust it to just to take off with it.  I will try to answer all of your questions the best I can.  I have not owned the car for a long time and have not had it on the road.  This car could be great to drive and restore at the same time.  If you would like the original wheels and spinner hub caps I will discount the car 500.00 and put the originals back on and keep the 17's.


I was going to make it a drag car but the car is to nice to cut up.  The floors are super solid, fenders and such.

GM issues four new recalls, 2.4 million cars affected

Tue, 20 May 2014 11:54:00 EST

General Motors has announced another set of recalls, covering some 2.42 million cars in the United States. For those keeping track, The General has now recalled over 15 million cars worldwide this year due to various issues.
Here's the breakdown for this most recent set of recalls:
1,339,355 - Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia models from the 2009 to 2014 model years; Saturn Outlook models from the 2009 to 2010 model years

GM recalls 61k more vehicles in three campaigns

Sun, 05 Oct 2014 14:00:00 EST

Following a stop-delivery order for its new midsize trucks and a rash of recent recalls, General Motors is issuing three more campaigns covering 60,575 vehicles in North America with 57,182 of them in the US. As of October 1, the automaker has issued a total of 74 recalls (see the ridiculously long chart to the right) this year covering 26,495,070 units in the US.
The largest campaign covers 46,873 examples in the US of the 2008-2009 Pontiac G8 and 2011-2013 Chevrolet Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle imported from Australia. It's possible for the driver's knee to hit the key and make it move from the "Run" to "ACC" position while driving. GM says its Holden division is developing a fixed-blade key that's supposed to fix the problem by only allowing it to rotate toward the "On" position. There has been one crash caused by this fault but no injuries or fatalities.
The second recall is for 10,005 units of the 2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V and 2006-2007 Cadillac STS-V because "the fuel pump module electrical terminal may overheat." This can cause a flange to melt and allow the pump to leak fuel. GM specifies that the remedy for the CTS-V is replacing the fuel module and fuel tank jumper harness, but it doesn't specify how the STS-V is being repaired.

The largest among them covers 215,243 units of the Saturn Vue from 2002-2004 model years worldwide, 202,115 in the US. It's possible for the for the key to be removed even when the ignition isn't in the OFF position. The company knows of two crashes and one injury caused by this problem. Dealers are checking the parts and replacing the ignition cylinder and key set, if necessary.
Next is 72,826 models worldwide (48,059 vehicles in the US) of the 2013 Cadillac ATS four-door sedan, 2013 Buick Encore and 2013 Chevy Trax in Canada. It's possible that the for lap belt pretensioner to retract but not to lock, which could increase occupant movement during a crash. Both front, outboard lap belt pretensioners are being replaced, and a stop-sale is in effect on unsold models until the problem is repaired. There are no known crashes or injuries, though.
