The 1961 full-sized Pontiacs were completely restyled including an all-new “Torque-Box” perimeter frame that replaced the “X” frame chassis used since 1958. The distinctive split grille, first seen in 1959 and dropped in 1960, was reintroduced. Rooflines were somewhat squared off and the new body was slightly smaller and lighter in 1961. All engines were 389 cubic inch V8 plants, but there were new option codes available to performance enthusiasts. Our beautiful 1961 Pontiac Venture Sports Coupe came equipped from the factory with a very special 363 hp version sought out by serious drag racers. The 61’s never came from the assembly line with a plant larger than the 389, but a new, hand assembled, 421 cubic inch Tri-Power beast was made available as a dealer installed option late in the season. This rare Ventura was the happy recipient of one of these factory replacements built on May 1, 1961, replacing the original 389. The performance features ordered did not stop with the engine and include a 4-speed manual transmission and performance axle package, “Saf-T-Track” 3.90 differential and dual exhaust. The exterior is bathed in the original Coronado Red with a stylish red/white vinyl interior that includes split front bench sheets. This well-documented fast ride underwent a complete frame-off restoration in 2012 and is ready to show. The 1961 Ventura Sports Coupe is located at our Milwaukee showroom.
