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.

1960 Pontiac Chop Top Rot Box Ventura
I purchased this car on Ebay for $100. I drove from Charlotte NC to Key West Florida, a 13 hour drive, and dragged it home with some help from my buddy Todd Rankin. The trip cost me another $500 with gas, meals and a hotel room. I had the car running in less than a week but it was just so rusted out (wind blown salt water from hurricanes) It couldn't be saved. The frame is still good and the engine/trans were rebuilt less than 2000 miles ago. According to the previous owner it has a posi rear, too. I'll keep all the drive train parts as service replacements for my Catalina but nearly everything else will be sold or scrapped.
