The Ventura was first introduced in 1960 as a full size car. In 1971, Pontiac moved the name to their new X-body Nova clone, the Ventura II. The Ventura II name was only used for 1971-1972. From 1973-1977, it went back to its original name, Ventura.

In 1971, the only (2) engine options for the Ventura II was the 250 CID 6-cylinder, or 307 CID V-8. For 1972, a Pontiac-built 350 cu in. V8 with two-barrel carburetor was added to the option list and became the base V8 for 1973 and 1974.

This Pontiac Ventura is named the ‘Orange Cookie’ and is painted DuPont Molten Orange Candy.
These photos show the Ventura while it was owned in the Philippines. The Orange Cookie has left the Philippines to a new home in Australia. By a stroke of good-luck it narrowly missed being a victim of the devastating floods in Manila.

We really like the hood scoops that were added. It gives it the ‘GTO’ feel.
