Most of us know that the Chevrolet Nova, Olds Omega, Pontiac Ventura and Buick Apollo are almost exactly the same car built by General Motors. But, did you know that the first letter from each name Nova, Omega, Ventura and Apollo spell Nova? Just a small piece of GM trivia. The Pontiac Ventura was the first to follow in the Nova’s footsteps in 1971. The Omega and Apollo weren’t introduced until 1973. My second car as a teenager in the early 1980’s was a 1971 Blue Ventura. I think we all have special places in our hearts for our first cars. With space in my garage becoming an issue, I’ve decided to part with my Ventura. This first year Ventura is an outstanding car that’s been gone through from bumper to bumper. In 1971, Ventura’s came with 2 standard engine choices, a 250c.u. straight 6cyl and the Chevrolet 307-V8. In 1972, the choices were the same but the V8 engine was a Pontiac 350. Under the hood of this car is the 250 straight 6. The transmission is factory 3 speed with the 3 in the tree shifter on the column. From top to bottom this is a very nice car I purchased it a couple of years ago in California near Mount Shasta. Rust free in every area. The trunk is excellent and the floors are mint. One Problem the car has is that the front seats need to be redone and I have a bid for $350 to do that but haven’t gotten around to it yet. I just put seat covers over the seats and have enjoyed the car. This is a 100% solid and original paneled car. She has no patches or abuses of bondo anywhere. The pictures are honest and accurate. The body is excellent and the paint is very nice with smooth texture and shine. She does have a few parking lot dings but nothing major and you can see the pictures to see the condition of the paint. It is about ten years old but has been stored inside and driven around 200 miles a year. I have new weather stripping, for the trunk but it has not been installed yet. Window rubbers and felts are good. The bumpers, stainless trim and glass are also excellent. The interior is extremely clean and in very nice condition. Everything on the car functions correctly. The lights, heater, wipers and even the horn all work. I suppose I could go on and on but the photos will give you a clear impression of the car.  This car needs nothing to be driven and enjoyed with pride. I stand by my opinions but please keep in mind that these are my personal opinions and they may differ from yours. I would enjoy showing my car in person and encourage anyone with genuine interest to come see her. My home is in northern Utah about 75 miles from the Salt Lake City Airport in Mendon near Logan Utah. Feel free to email if you have questions Phone calls are great too. My number is 435-760-1385 it is a cel phone and if I don’t answer just leave a message with your number and I will call you back. I took every picture myself with my handheld digital camera. No photo has been altered or photo-shopped in anyway. This is my car and the pictures show her correctly. This car deserves every wave from the street corner and compliment it gets. The upcoming photos are accurate but she’s much better in person.

I’m hoping that the car speaks for its self and goes to a good, appreciative home. These cars are hard to find, especially in this condition. I owned almost the identical car when I was 16 and looked for a long time to find this one and get it fixed up, it has been babied and well taken care of. The original owner purchased the car and used it as a tow car behind a motor home. He said that approximately half of the miles were from being towed behind the motorhome. His daughter took the car to college for two years and then he stored it. Only driving it a few times a year. I have put less than 200 miles a year on it and have enjoyed it. This car isn’t in perfect condition but it is as original and as clean as you will find anywhere. If you want to put a high end transmission and engine in this it is just waiting for the chance. My offer of showing her in person and answering questions is sincere, so don’t hesitate to contact me. I do reserve the right to end the auction in the event an offer is accepted and the car becomes no longer available. Thanks for your time, John

The next four pictures are of the car from the add when I purchased it from California before changing rims and lifting it a little.


The next three pictures are of the car I purchased in 1979 as a 16 year old, you will see the similarities

The next pictures are of Pontiac venturas that I found on the internet and how great of a car they are to fix up and show off.
