The Pontiac Grand Prix was a car built by General Motors between 1962 and 2008. During most of those years it was considered either and full or mid-sized luxury class vehicle. When it was introduced, it was meant to be a higher performance replacement for the Pontiac Ventura. Early models were essentially a top trim package for the Catalina.
First generation Grand Prix were produced between 1962 and 1968. They were built on a full-sized B-body chassis. They were related to the Oldsmobile Delmont 88, Buick Wildcat, Pontiac Catalina and Chevrolet Impala. Powertrain choices included a 389 cu in (6.4 L) V8, 421 cu in (6.9 L) V8, 400 cu in (6.6 L) V8, or a very powerful 428 cu in (7.0 L) V8. They were given either a 3-speed manual, 3-speed automatic, or 4-speed manual transmission.
John De Lorean, head of Advanced Engineering at Pontiac, was involved in the development. Early models are most desirable and came with Pontiac performance options, including the factory-race Super Duty 421 engine which was fitted to just a handful of these early cars.
Second Generation Grand Prix were produced between 1968 and 1972. They were smaller and classed as a mid-size vehicle. It used the GM G-Body. Constructionally, it was related to the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, Chevrolet Chevelle and Monte Carlo, Buick Regal and the Pontiac Le Mans.
