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.

1961 Pontiac Catalina Convertible..tri-power
This is my Thanksgiving present to you! What a beautiful car...and a
sleeper too if you just assume it's a "normal" Catalina! This is a
tri-power motor, and it has a 4 speed manual transmission too! If we had
only known at the time what a keeper this is...they would have had to make
a lot more of these! I love those 8 lug wheels...Pontiac was ahead of the
curve in supplying beautiful wheels for their cars!
1960 Pontiac Ventura Vista Hardtop 389 V8
We thought you might like a look at this really unique 1960 Pontiac Ventura
Vista Hardtop. This car gives you great visibility in all directions, with
all of it's wrap around glass. From the front grill, to the awesome
taillights, it's an impressive looking car. It's powered by a 389 V8,
putting out around 260 HP in this trim. The interior has been redone and
is still looking great. The odometer is showing 67,xxx miles and that is
believed to be original. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for
