Vintage Ad: 1964 Pontiac Taxi – “For Those Who Want The Finest” – I Guess There Weren’t Many Of Those


A big Pontiac taxi in the ’60s? Never saw one. Did any of you?  Seems a bit odd , actually, given its standard 389 V8.

Not exactly the most economical thing to drive. But the optional automatic is the Super Hydramatic, not the weak Roto-Hydramatic. And there’s even an optional HD Super H-M. It’s hard to imagine what taxi owner would still specify a three-speed manual in 1964, especially in a Pontiac taxi.
