Hey gang,
I picked up this ‘86 Pontiac Bonneville for a song. I’ll be transferring an LC2 ‘87 Turbo Regal drivetrain into this
It currently has an NA 3.8 with a 200
Objective is to create a “patina sleeper” and this car is a perfect candidate. Showing 37k on the clock it’s incredibly solid with the right “annoying “ patina in fugly brown.
Interior is in excellent condition, with ZERO options.....not even pulse wipers lol.
Goal here is to build a mid to low 10’s 4 door street pounder.27DDAC6C-EB07-48CF-A600-8EFB3B304C13.jpegA9EC637D-1585-4229-837D-225B0E8010E0.jpeg405C5E0A-2CDA-4E80-998F-7ED4E85E9644.jpeg0F1EB053-386B-488A-A8DC-B075A37634D0.jpegD6DAE2A3-646A-4791-B93D-1D9482E1FC58.jpeg

That will be a great sleeper! You will have your work cut out getting in the low 10's - 9in ford will do.

Lol Thanks
I plan on retaining Pontiac hub caps too. Along with the cheesy mud flaps.....keep the car as obnoxious as looking as possible
If I can’t build a 8.5 with a 30 spline Eaton, I may very well go 9”
Have to retain a reasonable budget. Famous last words I know😁

Welcome aboard!
Looks like a nice clean, solid looking old peoples Bonneville. It's going to make one hell of an unpretentious sleeper...especially with the ugly stock hubcaps and mudflaps. I could only imagine the look on the guy's face lining up to you in his GN or T-Type.
8.5 rear ends have become almost unobtanium...or stupid expensive.

Agreed, only available for a few yrs.

But would love to take down a HC or 2😁
