Showing a 22,200 original miles, this 1958 Pontiac Bonneville two-door hardtop is a very attractive example of the car that daring GM Executive Semon “Bunkie” Knudsen conceived to pull Pontiac Division out of its postwar downward sales spiral. The Division had sunk to sixth in industry sales when Knudsen assumed control with talented young engineers E.M. “Pete” Estes and John Z. DeLorean at his side. By then, Pontiac's former management had rolled out a caravan of dreamy show cars in efforts to improve its public image, debuting a fresh generation of cars with new chassis, new bodies and an impressive new pushrod V-8 engine. These resulted in a slight increase in sales, but Knudsen wanted more, and he fulfilled that desire with the limited-production 1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible, the flashiest, most sophisticated and powerful Pontiac the world had ever seen. It featured practically every optional extra as standard equipment, most importantly the Rochester fuel-injected V-8. The Bonneville returned in 1958 on the all-new GM cruciform frame with legendary GM Design Chief Harley Earl's last styling treatment before his retirement. Available now in both hardtop and convertible form, the 1958 Bonneville offered similarly lavish appointments and improved performance with new Tri-Power carburetion that raised the 370 CI V-8's output to 300 HP. Many of the previous Bonneville's standard features were moved to the option list, but most 1958 models were fully appointed by their buyers, including the remarkable 1958 Bonneville offered here. Equipped with the 370/300 HP Tri-Power V-8 and a Hydra-Matic transmission, it is finished in Persian Black with a contrasting silver interior featuring a split-bench front seat, tinted glass, pushbutton radio with power antenna and power windows. Power steering, power brakes and wide whitewall tires with full-size wheel covers complete this rare and very sharp 1958 Bonneville
