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.





PONTIAC - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY 405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60 degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).
