Pontiac Ventura 1960 Description

1960 Pontiac Ventura
2-door hardtop (Bubbletop)

Rare 1960 Pontiac Ventura bubbletop that was owned since new by the same Texas family up until I bought the car last year. Prior to meacquiringthe car, it sat for many years covered with a tarp in a barn in Texas.
The 1960 Ventura is basically Pontiac's version of the 1960 Chevy Impala but with nicer trim. As far as production numbers go, the Pontiac Ventura (27,577) is much more rare than the Chevrolet (204,467). This particular Ventura was factory equipped with Pontiac's 389 cid engine with 4 barrel carburetor, from what I can tell the engine is the original engine that the car was built with. This car is also equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission, which I believe is also original to the car. The engine idles and runs smooth but it does drip a small amount of oil. At some point an ignition shut-off toggle switch was installed under the dash, likely an anti-theft thing that someone felt compelled to do. No big deal, you just have to remember it is there. The color combination is white exterior with Tri-color Red interior. I was told by the previous owner that the car was repainted sometime back in the early 80s and that the interior is all original except for the headliner which was replaced around 2004.
As you would expect from a Southgate, California built and lifelong Texas car, the body is very solid. Some dings and dents have been repaired here and there, butI have found no indications that any body panels have been replaced...as far as I know all of the metal on the car is original. The paint is not perfect, but it shines up real nice. The trim is all there and most of it is in nice shape too. The car looks great and it runs and drives very well.
The car comes with some nice documentation, including: the original Bill of Sale from 1959, the original warranty papers, and the original microfiche title.
Interestingly, this car is a past movie car with a cameo appearance in the 2005 Sandra Bullock movie titled "Infamous" ... not a big deal, but a cool little historical bonus.

All in all this1960 Pontiac Ventura 2-door hardtop bubbletopis a very solid and mostly original southern survivor. Arare car that you might see once in a blue moon these days...not many left, especially in this condition. A really cool classic at a VERY reasonable price!
I have a clear title for the car in my name.
