RealRides of WNY - 1963 Pontiac Grand Prix

Regular readers of this space might remember this 1963 Pontiac Grand Prix from a few years back — we passed it poking out of its driveway one day while driving through Kenmore. Well, last week we passed by again on our bicycle and found it on the front lawn, giving us an opportunity to show off the rear end which helped so much to differentiate it from other full-sized Pontiacs that year. Yes, the grilles were different, but IMO the bigger differences seem to be at this end: taillights, trunk appliqué, and especially the roofline. The Catalina and Bonneville 2-door hardtops both shared a faux-convertible roof shape (below), while the GP’s roof had a rear window that sloped into the trunk area. (The GP roofline was also shared with Oldsmobile’s Starfire.)
