A ONE YEAR ONLY EDITION - 1967 GRAND PRIX CONVERTIBLE
The Grand Prix was introduced to the Pontiac line in 1962 to spice up the
Pontiac offerings. 1967 dawned and Pontiac management decided to spice up
the Grand Prix line by offering the a convertible model to compliment the
hardtop coupes. The Pontiac design again featured it's wide tread, beaked
nose facia, and unique tail treatment. Another design favorite are the
hidden headlights, slotted running lights, and the "Poncho" body. The
Pontiac Catalina and Grand Prix shared the 121 inch wheelbase. Power for
the Grand Prix came from a 360 bhp 428. Sales of the $3813 convertible and
the $3549 hardtop rose 15 percent from 1966 with total production amounting
to 42,981. For 1967, Pontiac was third place in U.S. car sales! However,
the sales increase for 1967 showed only 5,856 orders for the convertible
model. Pontiac dropped the Grand Prix convertible after '67 making this an
only year edition. Take a look at this Grand Prix for it is really a
beautiful car. The "Poncho" body makes the hugh expanse of sheet metal
past the front doors look absolutely sexy. Black vinyl interiors were
popular for years on all makes of sixties cars and this black pleated
interior mimics black leather very well. When remembering Pontiac, models
like this makes one realize that Pontiac use to be quite a car

1967 Pontiac Bonneville 428 HO Convertible
I thought you'd like a look at this very rare 1967 Pontiac Bonneville
Convertible. This car is still in very original condition and looking
really sharp. Its powered by the awesome 428 HO V8, topped with a 4 BBL
carb. These engines put out well over 300 HP and 400 LbFt of Torque. This
particular car still has all it's factory equipment and almost completely
original interior. They just performed a light restoration where needed.
This is definitely a nice example. I hope you find it interesting, thanks

cubic inch engine, four speed, bucket seats, upgraded suspension...a recipe
for Catalina like the GTO was for the LeMans. The pride of ownership shows
through this one!

Pontiac Banshee A Longer Look
The Banshee was a vision for what the Firebird could become. Of course,
this concept car could never be built exactly, too low on the road and it
wouldn't pass the safety and crash tests, but it was exciting. It
demonstrated that the problem with GM cars didn't sit on the designers'
shoulders. They were more than capable of dreaming up engaging and fun
vehicles that would set imaginations on fire.
