1973 Pontiac Ventura Restomod
LS1 RESTOMOD, 6-SPD MANUAL TRANS, QA1 SHOCKS, A/C, CRUISE, X-BODY NOVA PLATFORM!
HIGHLIGHTS: LS1 fuel-injected V8! Awesome resto-mod! 6-speed manual transmission, QA1 shocks, 4-link suspension, and more!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body is clean and straight, showing that this car has been cared for since the restoration and modifications took place. The body lines are crisp and sharp, and this Ventura is bound to turn some heads! This car has covered over 26,000 miles since it was completed, and as such there are some very minor defects to be found. Overall, the body is very clean and straight.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Although the build on this Ventura is timeless, it isn't a brand new fresh build either. As mentioned above, this puppy has clocked some serious miles since being completed, and there are some normal, minor paint defects to be found (which we affectionately refer to as 'road rash'). This car has done multiple Hot Rod Power tour events, and after covering that many miles, well, it's bound to have picked up some environmental souvenirs along the way. All in all, the paint shows well and is in very ideal condition for a vehicle that is intended to be used and driven.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: A problem many individuals face when building a classic car for comfort and longevity is installing an interior that sits well for long periods of time without blowing the budget. A comfortable interior isn't cheap, and a cheap interior isn't comfortable! The builder of this car liked the seats in his modern Honda Civic so much, he put the same ones in his Pontiac! Heck, he even installed the console! Color us surprised at what a comfortable, functional, and appealing interior this is. And what a great fit! Much like the rest of the car, the interior is in great overall condition showing only normal signs of use over the years. This thing even has A/C and cruise control!
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Lift the hood and you'll be greeted by an LS1 V8, appropriately fitted with GTO covers. The engine fits in the bay nicely, and actually looks like it belongs there too! This Ventura sounds great, runs great, and is simply a blast to drive. You'd be hard pressed to find another car that was this cool and comfortable to drive in this price range! Underneath the car we have QA1 shocks and 4-link suspension.
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: It has everything the average restomod buyer could want, without being an average restomod.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: It's not a Nova.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This car is ready to go!
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Have you always wanted something nobody else has, without spending your life savings to get it? Wanted a Nova but tired of seeing Novas at every show and cruise-in? This is the car for you!

Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.
We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.
