Pontiac had its troubles in the '70s, but they weren't obvious in the big, lush 1975 Pontiac Grand Ville convertible. It was no '60s "Wide-Tracker," but it would be the last open Poncho for a dozen years.
The full-size 1975 Pontiacs, like the 1975 Pontiac Grand Ville, were not the eye-opening "Wide-Trackers" of the '60s. A decision to outproduce and "out-price" Chevrolet took a toll on workmanship, and luxury took precedence over performance when Grand Ville replaced Bonneville as the top-line series for 1971.
The 1975 Pontiac Grand Ville was Pontiac's only 1975 convertible.
