1969 Pontiac Grand Prix
The 1969 Grand Prix boasted the longest hood, a semi-fastback roofline, a V- Shaped grille, vent-less side windows, square headlamps and a new airplane inspired interior, and a hidden antenna.

1969 Pontiac Grand Prix

The best selling Pontiac of the whole year.

An all new Grand Prix as a fourth generation on a whole new platform. The Grand prix was moved from the Catalina's 121 inch wheelbase to a new "A-special" platform with an exclusive 118 inch wheelbase which was later named the G-body. The new redesign was a combination of modern elegance, and distinct sleek Pontiac styling. The 1969 Grand Prix boasted the longest hood, a semi-fastback roofline, a V- Shaped grille, vent-less side windows, square headlamps and a new airplane inspired interior, and a hidden antenna. An "SJ" option was also available. Also the 1969 Grand Prix featured a upper-level flow through ventilation system, carpeted lower interior door panels, and interval pulse windshield wipers. The public seemed to love the redesign and sales rose dramatically from the previous year, with it's better handling and new innovative curved cockpit dash design that was dubbed the "Command Seat."

NOTES: The first letter of a two-letter paint code identifies the body color. The second letter identifies the roof color. (For example, the combination 10-50 on a Pontiac would indicate the body finished in Starlight Black and the roof area in Cameo Ivory.) General Motors paint code plate for all models except Corvair and Corvette is located under the hood at the top of the firewall on the left or right of the upper shroud. Corvair paint code plate is on the left cross-rail in the engine compartment. Corvette paint code plate is on the instrument panel brace, below the glove compartment.
