Pick of the Day: 1967 Pontiac Grand Prix convertible

One of 5,856 Grand Prix convertibles produced

-

The phrase “Grand Prix” is French for “grand prize.” And for a model that was produced across eight generations and nearly 50 years in a variety of body styles, only one year offered a convertible: 1967. That might make it a grand prize for one lucky Pontiac enthusiast or collector.

The Pick of the Day is a 1967 Pontiac Grand Prix convertible listed for sale on ClassicCars.com by a private seller in Atlanta, Georgia. (Click the link to view the listing)

“One of 5,854 Grand Prix convertibles produced,” the listing states. “If you value a gorgeous original car over a restored example, this is worthy of a close look.”

This Regimental Red Grand Prix comes from the second generation of the model, which first came to life in 1965 on the General Motors B-body platform. The subsequent 1967 model year brought some important changes including new horizontally-mounted concealed headlights, more rounded “Coke-bottle” body styling, and louvered taillights that were similar to what the GTO muscle car wore. Most importantly, in addition to the two-door hardtop, a two-door convertible was offered (and quickly phased out for 1968 — the final year of the generation).

The 50-photo gallery accompanying the listing shows this Grand Prix to be in nice condition, complete with a set of wheel skirts, whitewall tires, and a white retractable top which the seller states works well.

400cid V8

Power for this Grand Prix comes from a 400cid V8 that is fed through a four-barrel carburetor and sends power rearward via a three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission. Although the odometer shows just 14,000 miles, true mileage on the chassis is unknown. “Drives pretty much like a new car, with the exception of the throaty exhaust sound,” the seller says.

The two-tone interior has a center console and came well-appointed for its time with woodgrain veneer, an eight-track stereo, and embroidered floor mats. A replica window sticker shows the car’s original delivery to a dealership in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin with a total retail price of $4,633.27 including accessories.

“This is a spectacular daily driver, weekend car, or could easily be upgraded to a total show-stopper. These one-year-only classic American convertibles are getting harder and harder to find,” the listing concludes.

The seller is asking $29,999 or best offer for this grand prize of a Grand Prix.
