Default '72 Superior Pontiac LWB Bonneville Soon To Be Crushed

This '72 Superior LWB Bonneville end-loader will be seeing the crusher very soon. I have purchased the CC rims and have spoken for the windshield. If there is anything else that anyone might need, let me know.

I should also mention that the body is pretty much rust-free. The 455, landau bars, and rear interior side panels are all gone as well.

Is she not in restorable condition? Sure looks to be. I'd love to own it as is. I hope someone saves it. If the rear floor is complete, it'd be a shame to part this one.

I see now the motor and landau bars are gone. I misread and thought you said they were in tact. Shame. Really pretty coach.

She's a '71 model.

Yes, it is a '71. The '71s were much better looking than the '72s. The '72s had the front bumper bar that ran straight across the grille. All sheet metal was the same for '71 through '73. I like the look with the Pontiac turbine style wheel covers!

I noticed that *this* coach has what were the original early to mid-70s 'big' Pontiac spoked wheel caps. Terry, the wire ones you had on your ambulance before you got the pancakes originally came off a 1977 or newer car. But the spoked wheel caps on this coach here are correct for the period, although I'm guessing fairly rare to be seen on an ambulance (but not necessarily a funeral coach).

It's too bad that Superior didn't use the Bonneville quarter panels with skirts. These would have been awesome cars had they just done that!

I agree Kurt, but maybe Superior wanted to put some distance between the "medium price" Pontiac and the premium Cadillac cars. She looks good w/ the turbine w/c's and cornering lights!
