Grand Prix

The 1962 Grand Prix was introduced by Pontiac as a full-size model offering, and was one of the first luxury cars that still packed plenty of performance. It's size was a step down from the Bonneville.

The car was essentially a Catalina coupe with minimal outside chrome trim and a sportier interior. Inside were bucket seats separated by a center console including a floor shifter.

The standard engine was the Bonneville's 303 hp 389ci V8 with 4-bbl carb and dual exhaust. The 389 Tri-Power with 3x2bbl and 318 hp, as well as two other higher-output 389s, was optional. Late in the model year, a 'street' version of the larger 421 (primarily a race engine) became available with a 1x4bbl and 320 hp. Pontiac also offered the 421 Super Duty with 2x4bbl rated at 405 hp.

Standard was a 3-speed manual with optional T-10 4-speed with Hurst shifter or 3-speed Roto Hydra-matic.
