RealRides of WNY #2578 ......................... 1967 Pontiac Grand Prix

– The drop-top was a new, one-year-only model when this 1967 Pontiac Grand Prix hit the showrooms. Of course, at that time not many (but a few I’m sure) knew that the GP convertible would disappear after only one model year. It was, I thought, a very unusual move. Reading the brochure recently, I realized for the first time in 56 years that the Grand Prix hardtop lost its vent windows for 1967 (which I already knew), but the convertible did have a pair. You’re never too old to learn something! The ’67 GP came standard with an “all-syncro 3-speed, with options of the Turbo-Hydramatic or all-syncro 4-speed.” I wonder just how many ’67 Grand Prix (Prixes?) were sold with stick shifts. Not many, I’ll bet… but this one was. Its accompanying window sticker showed the 4-speed added $226.44 to its bottom line. You can see the entire list of options on this car below. We came across it at last year’s annual Alden Car Show.
