In 1960, Pontiac sold 306, 716 cars which put them in 5th position for sales that year. More than respectable. This was the year they stepped up their NASCAR program…winning 4 races that year as well. They also won a Top Eliminator title in NHRA drag racing. And mickey Thompson set a land speed record of 363. Mph at Bonneville in the “Challenger 1”. My favorite for 1960 is the Ventura 2-door hardtop with the 389 Cubic inch engine. Priced at $2900. I am not alone as they sold 27, 577 of them. They also offered this car in a 4-door flat top and it also sold well …56, 000 Venturas in all for 1960.
