This Clean 1995 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi Is Up For Sale At No Reserve21
The Pontiac Bonneville nameplate has a long history attached to it, with production lasting a total of ten generations between 1958 and 2005. Now, this surprisingly clean ninth-gen model is listed for sale in a new online auction.
Hailing from the 1995 model year, this Pontiac Bonneville SSEi can be found at cars and bids, where it’s listed at no reserve.
Outside, we see some classic ‘90s-era styling, with the body panels covered in Light Beige Metallic paint. A set of fog lights are mounted in the bumper, while 16-inch Torque Star alloy wheels roll in the corners, complete with “Pontiac Racing” center caps. This model is also equipped with the Ground Effects Package and a rear spoiler, while the windows were tinted.
Inside the cabin, this Pontiac Bonneville is equipped with a number of interesting features, including Option Group 1SB, which adds in remote keyless entry, a head-up instrument display, and electrochromatic rearview mirror, electronic automatic air conditioning, a Bose eight-speaker performance sound system, and six-way adjustable front passenger seat. There’s also a boost gauge for the supercharged engine. The leather upholstery is done in an exterior-matching shade of beige. Also of note are the ‘90s-tastic Panasonic CD changer in the trunk and the hardwired cellular phone in the center console.
Motivation is sourced from a supercharged 3.8L V6 engine, rated at 225 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque when new. Output hits the front wheels by way of a four-speed automatic transmission. This particular example was also modified with an aftermarket intake. The auto-leveling suspension system is included as well.
While clean, this 1995 Pontiac Bonneville certainly isn’t perfect, with a few scratches and scuffs on the exterior, some curb rash on the wheels, and burn marks on the carpeting. Also, the cruise control system, CD player, and cell phone no longer work.
With 64,700 miles on the clock, this four-door looks surprisingly good. The vehicle is physically located in Henderson, Colorado, and the sale includes the original window sticker, which lists the original vehicle price at $31,574.
As of this writing, this 1995 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi has a high bid of $5,000 of 15 bids placed thus far. The auction will officially end on March 23rd at 12:22 p.m. PDT.

Peanut butter is more collectible than this.
Actually there are more people looking for clean models like this than there are left.
I sold a 97 SSEI a few years back and the guy flew in from Florida to buy it at a price I could not believe he would pay.
There is a small cult of Bonnie lovers out there.
They were great drivers! I just don’t see front wheel drive vehicles as collectible.
Wow, it’s early, but this might be the dumbest comment on this site today, consider it an achievement because competition is strong around here.
People said the same thing about ’80s cars and now they’re getting to be expensive and popular. People want what they either had or wanted to have in their glory days. ’90s vehicles are not peak yet, but they will get there just like ’80s vehicles are starting to.
“I just don’t see front wheel drive vehicles as collectible”
Not a Cord? Or a Toronado or Eldorado? Original Mini Cooper? Citroen SM or DS or Avant? Not the $150,000 Type R that sold 2 weeks ago?
None of them are collectible?
You should take a look at my 1968 Cadillac Eldorado.
I had a ’94 Grand Prix. But would liked to of had a Bonneville after it. Friend of mine bought one, and it was comfortable car. Seats were more cushy back then. New seats are ok, but still suck IMO. Probably designed by 100 lb millennials 🤣
These were some of GM’s best cars. Dad and I hand picked a clean low mileage 2001 Bonneville in 2002 and that was one of their favorite cars ever. When they were forced to killed Pontiac they killed a very storied brand and they haven’t been the same since!
I had a Dark Green one and a Dark blue one, they were absolutely great cars!!
I had a ’98 Bonnevile, only a loaded SE though. Dark metallic blue with tan leather. That was the most comfortable car I ever owned. Plenty of power with the 3800 Series II, great balance of ride comfort / handling, and regularly 30+mpg HWY. I bought it with about 90kmiles in 2004, and I don’t think i paid more than $3K for it. Only issue I had were, obligatory intake gaskets replacement, and a never ending battle of repairing paint due to GM’s defective primer. I sold it in 2013 with about 200K, and she still looked and ran great. If I could ever find a low-mileage, clean late 1990s example, I’d buy it and daily it in a heartbeat. Nobody builds cars like that anymore. Although similar, my Lucerne doesn’t even compare on a comfort level to the Bonneville.
One of my favourite iterations of the Bonneville. This one is a lovely car.
Peak cladding outside, peak plastic inside. Too bad…the underlying design of these was quite pleasing and distincitve for its time.
I wonder if there is way to buy the car without making Doug DeMoron any money…..that would be great.
I liked everything about it but the red backlighting on the instruments. That was just too much after a while.
I miss the red pontiac lighting.
I also love my ’93 SSei that had over 240,000 mi when I sold it. Ran and drove fine.
Had a ’97 Bonneville the same color. Nice car. Back end was a little strange and needed the rear spoiler to help the look. Too bad it was fwd.
My first car was a 1995 SSE in black and I LOOOOOVVVVVEEEEDDD that car. My grandma handed it down to my brother and I on our 16th birthday and we were elated. I was so mad when my brother made me get a different car like 1 1/2 years later because he wanted to keep this for himself.
Somone got a great deal at $6500. If we didn’t have kids and I still had that disposable income I used to be able to blow I’d be making space for that puppy. 1995 was the best year as it was last year before they tried to smooth everything out. Yes the 1996 got the Series II, but these were the coolest to look at.
I have this exact car and color with 140k. Put a lower mileage engine in it over the summer. I’m trying to fix a few other things as well. I live not far from Henderson too. So cool to see these cars get some love. I honestly never see these around
