1968 Chevrolet Malibu Sports Coupe
1964 Pontiac Grand Prix
Head to Head
Special ordered in late 1967 from Rancho Chevrolet, formerly of Reseda California by my Mom-in-Law, Sadie. Sadie wanted certain options and Rancho was the only dealer in the area that would order the car the way she wanted. Over the years I maintained and cared for the Chevy and she gave it to me when she could no longer drive. Sadie passed away several years ago, but her wonderful spirit lives on today in all of us that loved her and her precious Chevy.
Now this picturce does do this car justice. None of those pics the dealer took where any good proper lighting is the most improtant thing

Picking up where the Pontiac Ventura model left off, the Grand Prix first appeared in the Pontiac line for 1962. It was essentially a standard Pontiac Catalina coupe with minimal outside chrome trim and a sportier interior (bucket seats and a center console. The performance-minded John De Lorean, head of Advanced Engineering at Pontiac, contributed greatly to the development of both the Grand Prix and the GTO. Early models had full access to the Pontiac performance option list, including the factory-race Super Duty 421 powertrain installed in a handful of 1962 and 1963 cars.
