The Pontiac Grand Prix was the top-of-the-line Pontiac luxury coupe and the first in a long line of 'Posh' Pontiacs that continued to the marques demise and the most powerful standard engine of any Pontiac. Bucket seats were part of the standard package, as was a tachometer (with manual transmission) and vacuum gauge (with Hydra-Matic) and a center console also came as standard. The Grand Prix was a luxurious and superbly styled car equally suited for the open road as it was around town. By 1967 the full-size Pontiac's were given a total redesign with a slightly bulkier appearance but more curvaceous lines. The stacked dual headlamps had continued until 1966 with the top lamp set into the leading edge of the front fender and the lower lamp set into the new integral grille and bumper design but he 1967 Grand Prix received styling cues that set it apart from the regular Pontiac line. Up front the headlamps were mounted side by side and hidden behind hide-away doors whilst the parking lights hidden behind louvers in the leading edge of the front fender. Also hidden were the windshield wipers and the taillamps set into louvered slots in the tail panel.
A convertible was also new for 1967 and regrettably for such a beautiful car lasted only the 1967 model year. Under the hood the 389 V8 was replaced by a new 400 cu in (6.6 L) V8 with four-barrel carburetor, dual exhausts and 350 hp. Also new this year was a dual master-cylinder braking system and optional front disc brakesalong with Rally II wheels. ans new for 1967 was an energy-absorbing collapsible steering column.Plus, Pontiac added an 8 track Stereo tape player.
