I have only seen about four 59 Pontiac factory photos.   There must be more in existence   Does anyone out there have any photos they could share?

These aren't assembly line photos, but factory photos of the new '59 Pontiac's pluss some other period pictures






Situated inside the International Amphitheatre, a close-up view of the 59 Pontiac exhibit features the top-of the line Bonneville Vista four-door hardtop in the foreground. Directly behind is a nine-passenger, Catalina Safari station wagon with fully retractable, roll-down rear window and lowered tailgate. At the rear of the exhibit is a Bonneville convertible mounted on cantilevered supports, giving the illusion the car is floating in front of the curved backdrop.

Very cool!  I did not know that there was an "El-Camino" version.  Do any of you have one?

Found this photo on Facebook today, looks like a different one with different color on roof and interior. Maybe this one is custom made?
