1962 Pontiac Grand Prix
A true premium range-topping full-sized coupe, this 1962 Pontiac Grand Prix is the car that launched the legend. So when you can get a coupe in a terrific color combo, enhanced V8 power, and a ton of originality, this is one special classic.
Pontiac really understood how to bring performance and luxury in equal measures. They decided to really showcase this in '62 with the introduction of the Grand Prix. The Wide Track look was really taking effect with the quad headlights, broad split grille, and taillights that were pushed all the way to the corners. And with all this sheetmetal, we love the upgrade to a professional application of slick black paint that has a piano-like luster. Not only does it look great on its own, but also it provides a fine showcase for all of the brightwork. The well-integrated chrome bumpers, full trim surrounding the hardtop profile, and Pontiac's distinct 8-lug wheels really help make this a true boulevard king.
Inside is more of the merging of sporty and premium. You see this best on the seats. The factory-correct saddle tan is a great complementing color to the exterior, and in fact, it's the kind of color combo you often see on modern cars. Not only do you get bucket seats up front, but the premium texture was exclusive to the Grand Prix. Plus, there's plenty of room in the back to carry family and friends. And they even have a fold-down armrest when they want individual comfort. The curved windshield, ultra-wide dash, and stylish center console give this a feeling of expansive luxury. Plus, everything from the AM radio to the center-mounted tachometer are working in this well-maintained interior. This coupe has averaged less than 1,400 miles annually, and the proof is in the level of preservation.
The engine bay stays faithful to this car's original image right down to the black air cleaner, factory decals, and turquoise paint on the block. Fans of the soon-to-come GTO know the Pontiac 389 cubic-inch V8, and it's a great powerplant to have here, too. There's a bit more grand touring weight in the Grand Prix compared to the Goats, but that isn't a problem for this big power, four-barrel carb motor. Advertised at 305 horsepower, it was able to deliver on the Pontiac's performance promise. And this one has the added secret of a newer Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor (the original four-barrel comes with the sale, too.) Then you add in great features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, power steering, and a supple ride. It's this fast moving and luxury cruising attitude that makes the coupe so desirable.
