1961 Pontiac Ventura
About This Pontiac
|Condition||Pre-Owned Clear Title|
Vehicle OverviewWhile Chevrolet produced the beautiful bubbletop coupes for two years, 1961 was the only year that Pontiac used this graceful design. Hemmings Motor News (February, 2016) called this one of GM's most iconic body styles... It's those roof pillars. They're conspicuously thin - like Don Draper's tie or the spaghetti straps on one of Jayne Mansfield's gowns--and they're stretched to the point of breaking, pulled tight over a fishbowl of safety glass. There were only 13,297 Ventura bubbletops made, and this is an excellent example. The body is arrow-straight and has a Richelieu Blue paint job, with a white spear. The interior sports fresh tri-tone upholstery and a re-covered dash pad. The Deluxe steering wheel (blue & translucent plastic) has been beautifully restored (a remolding process that costs over $1000). It appears that the drive train is original, a 389 engine with added Tri-Power for a great look and superb performance, backed by a 3-speed Hydra-matic transmission. Wide whitewall radial tires are mounted on Pontiac 8-lug alloy hubs, with an 8-lug spare and correct hold-down plate. The jack equipment appears to be original. Optional equipment includes an original AM radio, clock, power brakes and steering, and aftermarket front power windows. I had my mechanic go through the car completely, including carburetors and brakes. It's a delight to drive, and ready for cruising or show. Again, according to Hemmings, any bubbletop is considered a highly collectible car, regardless of which GM division it hails from. The Ventura bubbletop's one-year-only production has made them difficult to find today. *Vehicle Location is at our clients home and Not In Long Island *Please Call First for location and talk to one of our reps at 516 376 3471 ** FREE Consignments!!
