The Grand Prix was Pontiac's top-of-the-line car, and was a sales sensation for the company. While they already had a strong muscle image from the GTO, they built the big Grand Prix more for luxury, but it accelerated like a muscle car, thanks to the tuned 400ci (6,554cc) motor under the hood. The luxury was emphasized further with the ride quality, which was possible through coil springs at each corner and a separate chassis. The drum brakes were self-adjusting, but there was also an option of discs up front to stop the 400lb (181kg) leviathan. Externally the car was smoothly styled with a 'Coke bottle' rear which set the fashion that lasted into the 1970s, plus concealed headlights in the trademark Pontiac split grille. Inside there was the choice of three-speed auto or four-speed fully synchronized manual transmission and a luxury leather bench seat, plus wood dash trim.
