Trta Wide-Track family for '60: Grand Prix, Bonneville, Brougham, Executive, Catallna, 6TO, LeMans, Custom 3, Tempest and Firebird. Looks like another bumper year for Pontiac, Wide-Track stance; bigger 360-hp, 428-cu.-in. V-8. New side, trunk, hood, roof and deck styling. Massive new grille, unique among Pontiacs. And inside, shades of the Taj Mahal. A hide-tough yet skin-soft bench seat arrangement in fully expanded Morrokide. Dash and door inlays with the look of Carpathian burled elm. Plus what appears to be a bowling green of deep, broadloom carpet.

Since we're having a bumper year, he's having one, too. Get our engineers and designers going on something and they can't leave great enough alone. Take the bumper on this 1969 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible. That center section looks like ordinary sheet metal. It even matches the color of the sheet metal. But it is actually Endura, a man-concocted substance that "gives" should you accidentally scuff something. And the color is impregnated, not just laid on. So it resists cracking, peeling, fading and chipping. What else is new with Bonneville? Oh, a longer 125' wheelbase; wider THE YEAR OF THE GREAT PONTIAC BREAK AWAY.
