By the time this 1965 Pontiac Grand Prix went on sale, it was gravitating more towards the luxury side of the personal luxury coupe genre, the sporty end being covered well-enough by the mid-sized GTO. How could you tell? A glance at the standard equipment list, where one item in particular jumps out at you, should verify: fender skirts. There you go! Inside you could get something Pontiac called blue charcoal Pontchartrain cloth or even black expanded Morrokide — either at, as Pontiac pointed out — “no extra cost whatsoever.” Under the hood was a 325-hp, 389 cu. in. V-8 mated to a Turbo-Hydramatic transmission (optional was a 333-hp version with a three-speed manual transmission). This white GP (sans fender skirts) was seen a few years ago in the hamlet of Shawnee.
