1963 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible

Recommended Posts

'63 Bonneville Convertible in Grenadier red with interior 278 (red with bucket seats).  This is the AMT annual kit, which featured the 4-speed transmission. I used MCW lacquer for the exterior color and enamel for the interior colors, matched by eye from the swatches in the '63 Pontiac Sales Manual.

There's a lot to like here.  Looks like that MCW paint flowed out perfectly, and you obviously did your homework on the interior colors.  Nice engine bay detailing too.  

I hope we can see more of your work soon.

Fabulous finish! There's just something about a big, red ragtop!

Very well done!

I love Pontiacs, I love those old AMT annuals from that era, and above all I love that color combo! The detail was there in those kits, you just have to bring it to life.

I'd say, mission accomplished . . . and then some! ?

Beautiful looking convertible. Great paint work and realistic looking interior and trim.

It's a beautiful big red slab of steel! Very nicely done. I've never seen that trim on the front fender with the Bonneville script before.
