For what it's worth:

I had a similar thing, more a vibration than a bounce, on a '63 Spyder 
coupe.  Balancing tires didn't help.  I finally got the car on a lift 
with the engine running and the car in gear with the throttle cranked up 
a bit to see what might be going on.  Driver's side rear wheel was 
wobbling.   Bent wheel?

Nope. The axle was bent.  Replaced the axle, all was well.
