1961 Pontiac Ventura; 425A, 348hp, tri-power, 4 spd. 3:90 safe-T-trac. ORIGINALLY DOCUMENTED..........PERIOD!!
This is an extremely rare car! The color is Bamboo Cream with the red tri-tone interior and coronado red insert cove which has been highly debated over the years to not have come from the factory with this particular paint scheme, but the original owner said "This is the way the car looked when it was delivered to the dealership!" The car was purchased new by Amos Lindsey of Orange, Texas who primarily raced the car throughout the 1961 season where it won numerous trophies that year. My father, Kenneth Davis, purchased the car in 1962 from Mr. Lindsey and also raced the car for several years. He and my mother married in February of 1965 and went to Daytona Beach, Florida in this car on their honeymoon to see the 1965 Daytona 500. Since that time the car has seen 11 different owners with my father being the 2nd, 5th and the 11th. It is finally back home to stay for good. The 10th owner Steve Cayse from Kansas City, Missouri should be given credit for the total restoration of this one of a kind muscle car. Steve spent three years working nearly every night restoring the car back to showroom new and we would like to say "Thank you Steve" for doing such a wonderful job of preserving not only part of the Davis family history, but Pontiac history as well!
Yet another Tri-Power.......
