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 Banshee A Longer Look
The Banshee was a vision for what the Firebird could become. Of course,
this concept car could never be built exactly, too low on the road and it
wouldn't pass the safety and crash tests, but it was exciting. It
demonstrated that the problem with GM cars didn't sit on the designers'
shoulders. They were more than capable of dreaming up engaging and fun
vehicles that would set imaginations on fire.

1962 Pontiac Catalina 421 Super Duty - Gateway Motorsports Park - Huge Wheelie
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
This is a video of an awesome 9 Second, 1962 Pontiac Catalina. This Super
Stock Pontiac was racing in the Nostalgia Drags at Gateway Motorsports
Park, just outside of St. Louis, MO. It's an original 421 Super Duty car
and man do they have it set up right. This thing hooks hard and leaves
straight every time. Definitely nothing wrong with a mid 9 second quarter
mile at 143 mph. I thought you might get a kick out of that huge wheelie he
pulled on the one run. I hope you found it interesting....thanks for
Gateway Motorsports Park

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!
