The Story-My family owned and operated a Pontiac dealership from 1939 to 2005 in a small suburb of Detroit named Marine City. The location remained in the same building for all of these years and local service was thetheme.The dealership was founded by my Grandfather who ran the business for many years with the help of my Uncle and Dad. Many family members worked at the dealership and it was "the hometown Mom and Pop store". Buick and GMC franchises were added in 1960 but Pontiac was the car people desired over and over. The 1975 model year was the last production run ofaPontiac convertible and 3 units were ordered. Much to our surprise the production run ended and we started a search to obtain at least one from another dealer. We successfully traded with a dealer in Milan Michigan and had this vehicle put on a flat bed and brought to us. At this point the decision was made to keep this vehicle for the long haul. It was agreed upon to never be put in parades, car showsor on the road for any display.Over the years the vehicle has been properly stored in a climate controlled building. It has been covered and kept out of any harms way.It is started regularly and has no issuesto speak of. The vehicle is 100% original from the tires, to paint, to interior, to the window sticker stillattached.The vehicle was also rustproofed in 1975. Please view the original paperwork of build sheet, invoice, bill of sale, window sticker and title. The vehicle was kept in inventory from 1975 to 1996 and then titled personally due to insurance purposes. There has been numerousinquiries over the years to buy this vehicle and the timing is now with an upcoming sale of the original dealership building.
Pontiac Grand Ville History-The Pontiac Grand Ville was a luxury car produced from 1971 through 1975. In 1975, the Grand Ville Brougham was available as a 2- and 4-door hardtop and as a convertible. The convertible accounted for 4,519 sales while the four-door hardtop was the most popular, selling 15,686 examples. The two-door hardtop found 7,447 buyers.
Between 1971 through 1975, sales of the convertible body style never topped more than 5,000 examples per year. From 1973 through 1975, the Grand Ville was Pontiac's only full-size convertible offering. The Pontiac Grand Ville was Pontiacs top-of-line full size model from 1971 through 1975 that featured a luxuriously trimmed interior and was set apart from other models with distinctive chrome trim up front and taillights at the rear. With less than 5000 convertible models produced there are few that you will find that look as good as this one!
1975 was the last convertible Pontiac available until 1983 and also for the 1975 model Pontiac renamed the Grand Ville to the Grand Ville Brougham with more options standard such as power windows and the trunk being carpeted. The 1975 model year - the final year for the convertible - saw the most examples produced. The rarest of the Grand Ville convertibles was in 1971, with just under 1,800 examples built. Powering the Grand Ville was a 400 cubic-inch V8 rated at 185 horsepower. An optional 455 cubic-inch V8 was available, offering 200 horsepower.
