Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S117 1961 Pontiac Ventura
Arnie Beswick's 1961 "Passionate Poncho" Ventura still ranks as one of the most successful Pontiac factory-built racecars of all time. This Bristol Blue hardtop came from the factory as a 389/348 Tri-Power car with the Super Duty heads and camshaft shipped in the trunk. Once installed, the horsepower was raised to 363 horsepower, a number intentionally underrated by the factory. This is the car that Beswick drove to the '61 Daytona Winternationals and won with. Arnie went on to win a large number of Super Stock races throughout the country that season, solidifying his place as a major player in the Super Stock, A/FX and Funny Car wars of the 1960s. This car is an exceptional example of the breed, verified by Mr. Beswick himself. It is finished in the original race livery and is in its correct 1961 race configuration.

PONTIAC - "The Super Duty Story" Part 1 of 3
Pontiac had an SD engine program in the late 50s early 60s, and later/briefly again in 1973/74 with the SD455. This video is regarding the FIRST Super Duty program.---In only a few years time during the late 50s early 60s, Pontiac MORE THAN DOUBLED their V8's horsepower output (described in this video), while using/keeping the same V8 engine block they used thru 1955-81. Even though the same block was kept, from 1955-62 the cubic inch displacement grew much larger than the initial 287 cuber it started as in 1955. It grew to a 317 347 370 389 and finally a 421 cuber in 1962. It eventually maxed out at 455 cubes in 1970. By 1970 ALL the other GM divisions were producing engines at 454 or 455 cubes (500 for Cadillac). PONTIAC WAS THE ONLY DIVISION still using the same block they used in the 1950s on engines that had a much smaller displacement -- 287 cubes. The 1955 287 displacement would remain the smallest displacement ever used in the Pontiac V8 block all the way until 1980/81 when a 265V8 was produced. Since less durability was required for the smaller displacement, the block was decked/butchered/lightened on the 265/301v8s of 1980/81. Prior to 1980 the block had never been decked/butchered/lightened. The 1980/81 265/301v8 blocks were about 200 pounds lighter than the 1955-79 blocks, and only 25 pounds heavier than a Buick 231V6.
Pontiac Tribute Day - June 1, 2010
As a part of their bankruptcy restructuring, GM inexplicably jettisoned Pontiac, its third best-selling nameplate. The Wide-Track Division officially ceases to exist Monday, May 31.
The next day, Tuesday, June 1, is Pontiac Tribute Day. If you have a Pontiac, take it out of the garage and drive it that day, so people can see Pontiac's illustrious history in the form of cars like the Torpedo, Silver Streak, Star Chief, Safari, Bonneville, Grand Prix, GTO, Firebird, Fiero, Solstice and G8.
And be sure to buy a Tribute Day decal for your rear window. You can buy them at www. pontiactributeday.com or your local Pontiac Owner's Club (of course you belong to one). The Fiero Store's website is:
1963 Pontiac Bonneville 389 BigBlock 4 barrel carb. Walkaround w/ Idle/Rev
63' Bonneville 389ci walkaround plus WARM engine start and rev, no saying I'm reving on a cold engine! Picked this car up for $2000. I think its a pretty good deal for the condition of the car and how well it runs. And its mostly all original from what I can tell, prolly had a new paint job at one time though. And I belive its 143k miles probly not 43k since it has service records of having a new time chain and points dist. all that good stuff done in 98' @ 41k miles.
