Well I don't post much but wanted to share...

I recently brought home another 67' Pontiac! This one is a Grand Prix. It was a 428 car (now has a 455) and has a factory 4 speed! The 4 speed is what really sold me on the car. It probably would have been best if I just focused on my 2+2 at the moment but really couldnt pass it up!

Dave that car looks to be in fine shape. Was this a barn find? Any interesting stories about it belonging to a little old lady who only drove it on Friday summer nights? (before being sent up to the big house for traffic violations).

Thanks Big Dave! I really dont have any stories behind it. I saw the add on Craigslist. The guy I bought it from had it for under a year(had to sell....needed the money)...he had a friend that found it in Wausau, WI in the backyard of an old lady. From what I was told the car was her son's and he had it parked there. The seller claimed it was 1 of 824. He had the PHS documentation on it. Well, the 824 was for the WG code 428's that were produced that year that went into Bonnevilles, Cats ect... so its a pretty safe bet that not alot of GP's for the year saw that! Sucks that the original engine is gone and it will probably be hard to find another WG code 428 for it! Should be a fun car nonetheless!

I probably would have bought that too! Looks pretty nice, might even be worth a few hours invested in trying to talk to the previous owner or family to track down that original engine! Sweet car.

Next to Chevy,Pontiac is my next favorite.I would love to find a 1961-1965 Pontiac Catalina,Ventura or G.P. with a 4 speed.Had a chance to own a 1964 Catalina,421,4 speed car(Original owner was my best man in my wedding) back in the 1970's(he lost interested in the car),just no place to store it.I'm still kickin' myself for not figuring out a way to have got that car.If only I knew what this hobby would have became !!!!

Pontiac big blocks had massive torque. More than the 427 Chevy. Should be major fun and cost you a set or two of rear tires! I love that body style. Mean looking. Would look real nice in my garage next to my Caprice!
