It's not easy being a trendsetter. They say imitation is the sincerest form
of flattery, but try telling that to the 1970 Pontiac Grand Prix, whose
sales dove nearly 40% due to the introduction of the Monte Carlo and
Cutlass Supreme, which were clearly copying the styling of the successful
mid-sized two-door coupe.
The big change in the 1970 Grand Prix was a new engine. The 428 vanished,
its powerful spot taken up by the new 455 V8, supposedly the largest engine
ever put inside a Grand Prix. It hit 370-hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. The
400 V8s remained the same, at either 265-hp with the 2-barrel carb or
350-hp with the 4-barrel. In addition to the J and SJ trims, a limited
number of custom-built Hurst SSJ Grand Prix were sold in 1970. These were J
models shipped out to Hurst, who installed an electric sunroof, Hurst
shifter, gold Rally II wheels, and special body-colored sport mirrors.
Outside, vertical slats replaced horizontal ones in the grille and the
nameplate was moved to the side rear of the car. Also new in the 1970 Grand
Prix were standard power front brakes. The bench seat returned as an
option, but as part of a package that forced you to get automatic
transmission and a steering wheel-mounted shifter. While bucket seat models
featured the shifter and glove box in the center floor console, the glove
box in bench models was now in the dashboard.
