1967 Pontiac Bonneville, A Few New Pics.
Posted by Goofy62 on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 4:23 PM

I haven't been posting much on this forum in some time, but I just finished my '67 Bonneville project & I thought some of you might like to see it.

MPC.

The only other '67 Bonneville kit that I know of that was ever produced was the Palmer kit.

If you want to call that one a scale model kit! Smile

Thank you, but just so you know, The color is not black.

It's a very dark egg plant color called "Plum Mist".

It's very difficult to see in these indoor pics, but I will shoot some outdoor ones as soon as possible.

Some natural light will really bring the color out.

Got a few outdoor shots today & while they're not optimal for showing off the paint color, they're a little better.

Not as much sun today as I had hoped.

Really turned out nice.

Does anyone know where I can pick up one of these kits? I've looked on-line and cannot find one.

A friend of mine had one of these Bonnevilles when we were in our late teens, it was a real beater, but ran well and had some get-up-and-go for such a heavy car. I always liked that car and think I would like to build a model. His was gold with a black vinyl top.

If you keep your eye on ebay, they do turn up on occasion.

But don't expect it to come cheap!

This was an "annual" kit produced by MPC in 1967 only, & is therefore a pretty rare & desirable kit.

Your best bet to keep it under the 3 figure range is to find a decent built-up with all of the necessary parts present.

This one was missing the stock grille & one bucket seat & I believe that I still spent over $70.00 on it!

But, they are available.

You just have to be vigilant & decide how bad you really want one.

This is what mine looked like when I received it.

Noticed that it depicts a rare, 4 speed, bucket seat console version!

Thanks for the info Steve. In light of what you started with, I am now really impressed with your build.

Put a black vinyl top on that gold version, and you have my friend's car.

Yes.

I did some modifications on the interior & used a modified engine from the Revell '66 GTO kit.

Not entirely correct, but close enough considering that nobody makes any full sized modern kits of Pontiacs from this era.

Man that is nice!  I can't get over the execution of all the little details. For eg. the antenna and lettering. The car looks fantastic.

 You are right.Rare to find the big Pontiacs and only one, the 65 2 plus 2, is modeled with the very important and desirable 421 emblems on the font fenders.Even the 421 decal is impossible to find. I found photo etch 62-64 emblems but they screwed up and produced 2 of the same side. They are side of car specific.

 Yes, you are right about not being able to find kits of the big Pontiacs. Importantly, only one kit, the 65 2 plus 2 has the desirable 421 emblems molded on the fenders. I found photo etch 421 flag emblems for years 62-64 but they screwed up and produced 2 of the same side fender emblems. They are side specific.

I recently managed to get a few more pics with some bright sunshine.

They're still not great pics, but they do showcase the color a bit more.

Really nice work Goofy62.  I think you did a great job.  Yes

Love that car.  When I was in high school, my friend had a 67 Catalina, white over blue.

Awesome sled.  Love those old Pontiacs. 

Just keep picking away at it...
