This One-Of-One All-Original ’64 Pontiac Banshee Prototype Could Be Yours

Though motor vehicles have only been around, as we understand them, for around a century, that short stretch of history is nonetheless littered with cars-that-could-have-been. And while most concepts never make it past the early design stages, some really exceptional ones go on to become bonafide prototypes before they’re killed off. This 1964 Pontiac Banshee XP-333 is one such vehicle — and now it’s up for sale.

Penned by none other than John DeLorean, the man responsible for the notorious DMC-12, the Pontiac Banshee was actually designed to compete with the explosively-popular Ford Mustang pony car. Unfortunately, GM thought it was a bit too similar to the Corvette and decided to kill off the project after just two prototypes were made: a white convertible and the silver coupe you see here. Though its design language would go on to inspire later generations of the Corvette, this particular vehicle is one-of-a-kind, in all-original condition, and is shockingly being sold through a Kia dealership in Milford, Connecticut for a grand total of $750,000.

Purchase: $750,000
