Saw this rare Pontiac at a show this last weekend, neat old car. Bob
Yeah, I saw it at the Pontiac show on hiway 77 a few weeks ago...very tasty but I'd have to yank out the TPI 350 chevy motor....gotta be Pontiac powered for me.
Clicked a photo of this 31 Pontaic RPU It was actually a 31 Pontiac Ute.......
The car has style!
The grille is beautiful.
Beautiful old rare Indian and a cabrio at that! That Pontiac ute is RHD, possibly ozzie however I don't recall them making Ponchos in utility format
Classy and beautiful!!
For sure it needs a poncho motor. My friend has a 34 Pontiac 3 window and I have been trying to get him to put a Pontiac in it. He say it's getting a 350. Yuk! mopars need mopars and Pontiac's need Ponchos! Beautiful car though!
Dave had a coupe he was showin his 33 Pontiac dual sidemount car. The original builder of the car asked if he was gonna buy the convertible. He said what conv. The guy he bought it from(Arizona I believe) also had a conv he was ready to sell now. .So he jumped on it.
Slightly off topic, what do you think about the possibility of Pontiac coming back as a brand?
I've always liked the classy Grill on these Pontiacs.
Don't get me wrong its a beautiful car. Its kind of a shame though they didn't keep the original equipment. Not very rare any more. JMO
The only thing I'd change on that Poncho, is the name on the title....to mine!
Beautiful bodywork on that car. I'd prefer a tripower 389 or 421 and some bias tires but as an overall package still very pretty.
Yep, the Pontiac 389 or 421 would be the frosting on the cake.
She's a beauty !!!
If at all possible a care that rare should have been restored or at least rodder in a way that could be undone at some future point.
The car also has a copper Arizona license plate. Copper plates were made for 3 years, 1932 through 1934.
The copper plates were also made in 1976, I own one.
I can see that car holding its own against all takers just as it is.
