My friend Jason Bagge, also known as the Brougham Whisperer, has just purchased this magnificent 1976 Bonneville Brougham!
You may recall some of his earlier cars, such as the 1976 Caprice Classic Landau, and more recently the 1972 Pontiac Bonneville four door hardtop. Well, the Bonneville sold and went to Europe, and this car is essentially its replacement. The Bonneville Brougham reappeared for model year ’76, replacing the 1971-75 Grand Ville Brougham in the lineup.
Over the course of the past week, he’s compounded the paint and detailed the car extensively. The results speaks for itself. But he’s not done yet!
A new front bumper will be procured to replace the tweaked one, and the factory-correct fender skirts have been located in Minnesota and are on the way as we speak!
I have a serious, SERIOUS soft spot for the big 1971-1976 Pontiacs, especially the Grand Villes and Bonneville Broughams. So I just had to do a preview post this evening!
Stay tuned though. When it’s back to full showroom condition, there will be an extensive article! Until then, stay Broughamy my friends.
