Pontiacs for 1964
John DeLorean replaced Pete Estes as general manager, and he continued the
same emphasis on performance that Bunkie Knudsen and Estes had begun.
The big news for 1964 For 1964, the Tempest and LeMans' transaxle design
was dropped and the cars were redesigned under GM's new A body platform;
frame cars with a conventional front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. The
most important of these is the GTO, short for "Gran Turismo Omologato," the
Italian for "Grand Touring, Homologated" used by Ferrari as a badge to
announce a car's official qualification for racing. In spite of a GM
unwritten edict against engines larger than 330 ci in intermediate cars,
DeLorean (with support from Jim Wangers from Pontiac's ad agency), came up
with the idea to offer the GTO as a dealer option package that included a
389 ci engine rated at 325 or 348 horsepower (260 kW).

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
