1973 Pontiac Grand Am

From John Gunnell’s book “75 Years of Pontiac Oakland“:

“Auto sales in the U.S. jumped 9.5 percent during 1973. Pontiac’s production hit its highest point in history (919,872) and also the 16-millionth Pontiac was built this year.”

“The styling highlight of the year  was a totally new A-bodied model called the Grand Am. It had a European body configuration with Radial Tuned Suspension (RTS) standard and was said to offer ‘the feel of a Grand Prix…. the response of a GTO.’  The Grand Am came as a two and four-door model, both featuring what GM coined ‘Colonnade’ styling. This could best be described as a sleek pillarless Hardtop look with pillars added.”
