Bonanza Model
« on: April 08, 2023, 03:12:47 PM »
Hey guys/gals,

I came across a '79 Bonanza, super low miles, very little rust.

I can't say I've ever heard of this model. Can someone shed some light on this mark?

Are they rare? What made them different?

Thanks!!!

Trim package. I saw lots of them driving around back in the 80s and early 90s, so at one time they were not rare. Depends on where you live I guess.

Basically you got "free" options with the Bonanza and a Bonanza badge.

Ahh yes, I should post some pics of this truck.

That accounts for the grill- looks like a 78 but has horizontal trim that closes the gap between the rows, right up to the bowtie.

When the owner said it had 46350 miles on it I was a bit skeptical.

Would walk away quickly for 15k.  If it was a shortbed, then yes.

Very rare, highly sought after, like a 71 ragtop Cuda. Lol

Ran across this Bonanza model recently on Gotland Island, Sweden. I'm guessing it might be the only square body there.
