One-Year Only! 1967 Grand Prix Convertible

From Bradford, Pennsylvania (home of Zippo! lighters) comes this two-family Pontiac in resplendent white, with a few surprises! Many parts are relatively new or refurbished, and apparently, no big jobs await the new owner. Converted to four-speed manual shifting, it’s relatively tidy (though not perfect) in all areas. Despite the 428 badges, this Grand Prix houses a 350 HP 400 cid (6.6L) engine. The listing here on eBay has attracted at least one bid and a value exceeding $16,000.

Potential buyers appreciate a listing with lots of description, but the stream-of-consciousness style with no paragraphs or bullets is nearly as tiresome as ALL CAPS. Though I didn’t have the fortitude to read every word, I searched for “run” and “drive,” two words that don’t appear anywhere in the rambling soliloquy. the seller reports that it “runs like a Swiss clock.” I’ve never owned a Swiss clock, but they have an excellent reputation. Besides, this cream-puff practically sells itself! Originally an automatic car, it’s been converted to a four-speed manual using all original factory parts from a stick-shift donor car.

White-walls, white paint (mostly original), white top, and a snowy white background make an impressively white statement. The commodious trunk has plenty of room for boxes of printer paper, Wonder Bread, mayonnaise, and cauliflower.

For a single year, Pontiac graced the Grand Prix with this fabulous face, one of the most handsome grilles ever crafted. Notice the turn signals embedded in the sloping corners of the front fenders, and who doesn’t love hidden headlights? What would you give for this Great White whale?

    Cauliflower, Todd? Whoa! Well, Better that than asparagus or Brussel Sprouts 🤢🤮 I suppose..
    Wading thru the description he did say “it runs quietly and it drives tight with no issues”.

    Thanks, Nevadahalfrack. I checked again and I had “Whole Word” checked in my search so it struck out on “run” and “drive.” Fixed. Thanks again! Cauliflower might be a stretch, but I was trying to picture a trunk full of white objects. :-)

      Keeping in the ‘60’s motif, maybe White Rabbits or stacks of The White Album..? 😆

    That’s almost a concept car front end.
    Surprised a ’67 has hidden wipers! Might be the 1st year/only production car in ’67 for/with hidden wipers. Yet, it has vent windows.
    With the Toronado, Eldorado etc. for ’67, oddly, it’s the reverse.
    This & the unique ’68 look good with the rear fender spats.

      1967 Pontiac was the first car with hidden wipers. I recall seeing a vintage ad that read something like “Where did they hide the windshield wipers on the ’67 Pontiacs? Only your dealer knows, and he’s not telling until…”

    Wow, did someone use a star filter on the interior shot? How 70s!

    I once had a hardtop. I would like to have one again, a hardtop, not the convertible.

    I miss hide-away headlights

    The 1967 Grand Prix is absolutely one beautiful car, a couple of months ago at our local monthly cruise in, a gentleman showed up with a 2-door hardtop, parked by the curb, I stopped in my tracks and just stood there, it was like I couldn’t move, I just stood there in awe and I’m usually kinda hard to stop, I really don’t know how long I stood there, but it was a while, and when I did start moving, I still had a hard time taking my eyes off that car……….

    What if the new owner is Mr. White? These are in my top 10 favorite Poncho’s. If only I had the space and money I could do some serious damage to the family budget. Thank God my wife likes the older car’s also! That can make things much easier to explain why I don’t have alot of free time.

    As beautiful as the front end treatment is the rear is equally nice with the GTO style tail lights. Pontiac really did well on the ’67 design

    Rare and in good shape!! Why the badges with a different motor???

    • Nevadahalfrack Nevadahalfrack Member

      He mentioned in his ad that he’d intended to install a 428 but didn’t follow through with the conversion. Personally I’d take them off altogether since they’re stuck on with double sided tape.

    Is that a 4 speed? If so supper rare and awsome. 4 speed b bodies are the coolest to see hundreds of automatics. Very few sticks. Great to see.

    I don’t know how a Swiss clock runs (never heard that line used before), but I certainly have heard of things that “run like a Swiss watch”.

      Like this Grand Prix, I imagine a Swiss clock would be a much larger version of the watch

  15. Mountainwoodie

    Nicely done by an owner who seems to care about the details ( well, except for the 428 emblems)

    Excellent! While the conversion might hurt its value in some eyes, a slushbox is in my view much less desirable no matter the car and this is such a good looking boat.

    You can see where he wanted to go….

    The bidding history is kind of weird but its fleabay…….I’d love to have it if only…….

    Seeing this Grand Prix bought me back many years to 1968/ 1969 when I would hang out and lend a hand at my mentors auto repair shop. One of his customers bought a brand new Pontiac Bonneville Convertible, triple white, V8 dont recall if it was a 400 or a 428 but what I do remember was that it was a 4 speed. We both thought it kinda odd that a big ole luxurious barge like that had a stick. We wound up putting quite a few, 7
    or 8, new (not rebuilt) clutches in that Bonneville after the local Pontiac dealer stopped doing it under warranty, 3 times. There was no explanation as to why because both the cars owner and his wife were the cars only drivers who handled driving it very well. We checked everything, replaced the flywheel twice, gave the clutch linkage a going over, that Bonneville just couldn’t keep a clutch in it for any length of time, pretty sure they wound up wrecking the car soon after.

    It seems to me he did a lot of work and spent a lot of money making it “factory correct” , but then he says there is Bondo in the rear and ” bubbles in the paint” .Looking at the rear quarters , they seems to have had more work than he knows or is telling. Even the fender skirt looks loaded with it. These are probably my favorite of all Pontiacs , but I’m not sure its worth what hes asking

      I once bought a car from this area of PA….it was quite rusty underneath. Near the NY border, they get a ton of snow which would make me concerned about the rust factor.
