It's really a shame that GM (and others) can't make these big 2-door hardtop models anymore. What a classic design these early '60s Pontiacs were.

Anyone remember the Matchbox '64 GP? One of my favorites.

That is a beautiful car. It just screams "class".

Nice car That brought back memories. The last time I saw a 64 in that color was when I worked at Davis Pontiac in High School, one of the mechanics owned one and would bring it in to work to get it ready for the local show season.

64's are one of my favorite years for that car

Your car is beautiful Bill!

Now I know who's '64 Grand Prix that was on the cover of the Cruis'News

(I told Bill, but he already knew...I guess he found out last time you were in our store)

Very cool car. I remember working on one of these in the early 70's. What a blast to drive. Vaguely remember something very odd about those 8 lug wheels. Wasn't the brake drum integrated into the inner part of the wheel? I remember thinking those had to be expensive to replace. I suppose, like almost all else, they are available reproduction?
