Pontiac was known as a performance car back in the day of Muscle Cars. In fact it seemed Pontiac was constantly flirting with manufacturing a two seat sports car. The problem was the Chevrolet insisted no one build a two seat sports car that might rival the Corvette. That didn’t stop Pontiac from playing with the concept of two seaters.
This particular car was shown in 1964 and was powered by the OHC six cylinder engine, certainly not a Corvette killer but the body lines are remarkably similar to the soon to be built 1968 Corvette.
The Banshee was designed by GM executive John DeLorean to compete with Ford’s Mustang. Before it introduction the Mustang prototype was also a two seater.
This is the only Banshee coupe in the world. With its long sweeping hood and short deck styling the 2,200 pound fiberglass body over steel under body is beautiful. If you would like to see more of this car and read more about it, Click here.
