Classic Car: 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Special

The 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Special is a purpose-built concept car created by renowned designer Harley J. Earl (November 22, 1893 – April 10, 1969) and hand built by Homer C. LaGassey Jr. and Paul Gill.

The beautiful machine was unveiled at the General Motors Motorama in 1954 and it is the first 2-seater sports car Pontiac ever produced.

“The ‘Special’ is a two-door, grand touring sport coupé that incorporated innovative breakthrough styling like an all-plexi canopy with gull-wing panels on a sleek fiberglass body.”
