1960 Pontiac Ventura. -This is a super cool and rare Pontiac Ventura 4 door hard top / flat top. -Most of these flat tops were Catalinas or Bonnevilles. -The Venturas were on the shorter wheelbase like the Catalina but had the higher priced trim level of the Bonneville. -These old flat tops are in big demand right now for cruising around them in, and for long road trips. -When all of the side windows are down, it is almost like driving a convertible with a bimini top. -Absolutely no blind spots anywhere. -This car has always been garaged and only has 67342 original miles. -Absolutely 100% rust free now and never, ever, had any rust. -This car has the optional high performance 2 barrel 389 V-8 and the optional 4 speed hydromatic automatic transmission. -Both run out very well with no issues. -The only item that is not factory under the hood is the change to an alternator from the generator. -Power brakes and steering. No A/C. -It has newer Coker reproduction bias ply wide white wall tires all around. -Brakes stop like new. -It steers very easily. -All new exhaust. -The body has mostly original paint that is in very nice shape considering it’s age. -Still shines very well. -There are some touched up rock chips, nicks, & scratches as you should expect for an all original car. -The left front fender looks like it may have been repainted years ago. -Very good match if it was. -All weatherstripping is original and in very good shape. -Glass is all in very good shape and the side windows roll up and down like new. -Doors close like new. -All chrome and stainless steel trim is all in excellent condition. -No pitting and no need for any money spent here unless you just want it shinier than it already is. -The only drawback is bumper condition. -The chrome is excellent, but both have some small dents. -The rear is the worst. -Front hardly noticeable. -Personally, I don’t think they are so bad to warrant a dent repair and re-chroming, but you can decide. -Even the chrome around the windows is pit free. -The interior is all original and is in excellent condition. -No rips tears in the seats and the material is still very pliable. -It has the tri-color scheme of the Bonnelvilles. -All factory gauges work as they should, including the ’green’ cold light. -The radio plays like new with no static. -Dash chrome and paint is in excellent condition. -Steering wheel has no cracks. ( real rarity ) The wipers work, but sometimes they do not shut off. -Not sure if it is the switch or a timing problem with the wiper motor / blade positioning? I have it unplugged under the hood. -All lights work including the back up lights. -Carpet and headliner are very nice. -The underside has some minor surface rust but absolutely no rust holes anywhere. -Same with the trunk and floor pans. -The original trunk mat and spare tire is still in the trunk area.
