1967 Pontiac Grand Prix Escapes From Storage After Four Decades, Unrestored And Unaltered


Say what you want about the Grand Prix, but while the GTO was already the model getting all the love from Pontiac and customers in the States, this nameplate was still a head-turning machine. I absolutely adored the new convertible – available exclusively for the 1967 model year – despite many people considering it a boat on wheels.

The Grand Prix was also an expensive car, and the available options made it even more costly. The convertible could be had for at least $3,813, and if you also wanted air conditioning, you had to pay $421 extra. This means that a convertible with air conditioning carried a price tag of approximately $4,250.

Pontiac produced 37,125 coupes, while the convertible was much rarer, with the output including only 5,856 units.

The Grand Prix in these photos is a 2-door hardtop coupe still equipped with the original 400 V8 engine and a Turbo 400 transmission. You can tell the car has been struggling with a lot lately, but its fight for survival started in the early ’80s when the car was moved to storage.

eBay seller warpathvintage explains that the car was recently purchased from a young man whose grandfather passed away and left him the Grand Prix. The vehicle was moved to a garage shortly after the man’s passing and remained unrestored and unaltered.

The seller explains that they got the car and conducted vital maintenance work. They rebuilt the carburetor, installed new drums in the rear, and made additional brake repairs. The vehicle moves slowly but is far from a roadworthy Pontiac, so you’ll have to take it on a trailer if you reach a deal.


Air conditioning is also available, and the seller says the system appears to be complete. The Grand Prix exhibits the typical rust suspects, but your best option is to check it out in person or order a third-party inspection if you’re committed to a purchase. However, based on the photos in the gallery, this Grand Prix is a solid restoration candidate despite the rust on the frame, which is likely only surface damage.

The selling price is more than decent, despite the Grand Prix still flexing good bones for a complete restoration. The car can also be used for parts, though I hope someone sees it and begins a full overhaul.

The owner expects to get $2,800 for this Grand Prix, and they didn’t enable the Make Offer option, meaning the price is firm. Meanwhile, the car is parked in Denver, Colorado, and you must contact the seller to discuss an in-person inspection. You’ll need a trailer to take it home, as the Grand Prix is far from a road-worthy vehicle (despite the running V8).
