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.

Beautiful car, with a 1962-63 replacement Pontiac racing engine. The
ultimate in beauty and performance. Admittedly, not for someone who can't
afford the fuel, but this car makes a real performance statement!

all were Bonneville convertibles. When 1958 came along there were only

HARDTOPS!!! So this 58 FI Bonneville is NO DOUBT ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL
GENERAL MOTORS CARS EVER TO BE PRODUCED!!! AND SHE IS A BEAUTY AND WITH NO
RUST EVER, AND I MEAN NO RUST EVER!!!! She has had one repaint (THE PAINT
IS DROP DEAD GORGEOUS)!! !! (SHE IS AS STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW) and still

INTERIOR!! The chrome and stainless on this magnificent car is really
SPECTACULAR!! She has Power Steering and Power Brakes for ease of driving

FI motor is backed up to its original 4 spd. HYDRA MATIC transmission! She
is missing (NOTHING AT ALL) from all of the correct original FUEL INJECTION
PARTS to her correct Exhaust tips!!!
She lacks nothing accept a new home in some ones very special collection,

must have car!!! SHE IS TRULY A MASTER OF ENGINEERING DESIGN!! BEAUTY IS
MORE THAN JUST SKIN DEEP AFTER ALL!!

George Jetson would love This 61 Cadddy Bubble Top
A little pricey, but there is very little rust through on this complete
machine. I was told this one starts up and was retired 20 years ago. All
the tinted glass is excellent, but the body is sure dinged up along the
bottom edge. I know of another one that was, at least a couple of years
ago, much cheaper.
