Talk about confusing. This 1967 Pontiac Ventura was one of six different nameplates in two different wheelbases available in the full-sized Pontiac lineup that year. The upscale Bonneville Brougham, Bonneville, and Executive all rode on a 124-inch wheelbase, while the Grand Prix, Ventura, and Catalina made-do with three fewer inches of length between the axles. Varying degrees of engine size and luxury appointments (and of course, cost) separated the series from each other. The Ventura, when it was introduced for MY 1960, featured a bit more of the style of the larger Bonneville/Star Chief models on the shorter wheelbase platform of the Catalina. We saw this one a few weeks ago in Tonawanda.
