An Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor was installed during that 2006 process. the car starts easily once it’s warm.” There is some weeping noted at the rear differential and “a clunk when shifting into reverse,” but the Hydra-Matic four-speed automatic transmission “shifts well when driving,” he adds. According to the cowl data-plate codes, this Pontiac was originally two-tone Persian Black with Graystone White accents (coves) and a black convertible top, but is now Rangoon Red with Graystone White accents, and a white top. In 2006, the body was restored and a new top was installed, says the seller, who also states that both are in “very good to excellent condition with some small, but very minor scratches in the finish, and minor rust spots on the undercarriage.” Bonneville callouts and body trim were added. A continental kit for the spare tire was also installed. The original glass was retained, but the rear windows and regulators, which come with the car, need to be installed.. The door seals are said to be “in very good condition” and the lights work, except for the right turn signal. This convertible was built with a gray and silver interior per the trim code on the data plate, but now features Bonneville-design upholstery and door panels in red and ivory. The seat materials are in “very good condition,” with no cracks or tears, per the seller, who adds that the carpet is “excellent.” The power convertible top and the gauges work as they should. the power-assisted steering operates well, the suspension was rebuilt in 2006, and the bushings, shocks, and power-assisted drum brakes remain in “very good condition.” In 2007, the tires were replaced and still have full tread remaining.
