1964 Pontiac Banshee

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.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
