    Nice, but I'd rather have the GT model the 440 4-barrel.

    Almost bought one, in 71, while in the army. But I declined because I remembered my brother's 69 Grand Prix. So, I waited until I returned home and bought a 73 GP. Then the gas shortage hit. Timing IS everything.

    Fuselage Chryslers FTW!!!

    I love these things! But the best of the Fuselage Plymouths in terms of styling was the '72, IMO:



    Hidden headlights are awesome. Even the versions with exposed headlights looked cool, though. Chrysler had some style back when loop bumpers were in.
    Peace,

    I opted for a barely used '73 Suburban wagon back in the day- that had died in the neighbor's driveway.
    After going through a box of used ballast resistors on that first year electronic ignition, I hit a home run- and got it running. The guy still wanted to sell, and for 150 bucks- it became my work car for quite some time.

    Convert tops look fairly brutal on shells this large & clean.
    Pass on the convert; make mine a GT 440+6 hardtop.

    As I think about it, the 69 GP was GM's last beautifully designed car. Maybe this was true of all mfr's based upon the CAFE and smog requirements. One cannot say "look at the new Camaro" since it is a retro of the 69.
    Like the song "Where have all the designers gone"...maybe the tastes have changed and the designers with them.
