1973 Pontiac Ventura Ads

Pontiac's X-body variant welcomed in 1973 with a new name and a new body style.

The new moniker was simply Ventura. With no B-body-based Ventura package to be confused with any longer, the compact car dropped the "II" nomenclature. A Sprint package, featuring a new, simpler, two-opening grille, was offered. Two and a half mph compliant front and rear bumpers were also slapped on this year.

The biggest news for the line this year was the availability of a new hatchback body style.

The Uniroyal tire company chose the Pontiac Ventura as its mascot vehicle in a series of buddy ads featuring the adventures of Uni, Roy, and Al, a trio of flying, stunt-driving spokespersons touting the virtues of Uniroyal's steel-belted radial tire. Uniroyal was a tier-one, OEM supplier of tires to most of the PMD lineup this year.

Ventura production total: 96,500

Pontiac production total: 919,872
