Pontiac’s First Banshee Prototype Is Up For Sale, Listed At $750,000
A Connecticut Kia dealership has the first-ever Pontiac Banshee prototype and the only first-gen coupe ever made. And it’s up for sale if you have $750,000.
While the Pontiac never made it past the prototype phase, you now have the chance to park it in your garage. The prototype was conceived after Pontiac decided it wanted to build a true sports car in the ’60s. The prototype housed a straight-six engine in its fiberglass body and was called the Pontiac Banshee.
The 1964 Banshee Coupe concept listed for sale is a first-gen. Although the car was never taken to production, the nameplate had four generations. There were only two prototypes of the first-gen Banshee built.
If you’re wondering why it never made it to production, essentially, the Banshee suffered so the Corvette could make it big. GM internally decided there could only be one.
With only 1498 miles on the odometer, the dealership has put a high price of $750,000 on the rare vehicle.
