1967 Hurst Grand Prix Convertible Heads To Mecum Auctions

The 1960’s saw the rise of many famous drivers, cars, and aftermarket parts brands. While it was inevitable that some companies and brands fell to the wayside, others survived and thrived. Among them was Hurst, whose shifters became so popular that the brand even expanded into modifying whole cars. Among the most famous Hurst vehicles are the five 1967 Pontiac Grand Prixs used to celebrate and promote Hurst products.

Of those five cars, just two are said to have survived, and Hemmings Auto Blog reports that one of these cars is heading to Mecum’s Monterey auction, where it is expected to pull down big bids.

Impeccably restored over a 28 month period, this is one of just two surviving ‘67 Hurst Grand Prixs, cars made famous by the voluptuous Linda Vaughn. The car had to be completely stripped and parts of the floor panels had to be replaced. Though the original 428 engine could not be located, a stock replacement motor was with the correct heads and rebuilt to stock specs.

This big ol' Pontiac should fetch big bucks at Mecum's Monterey auction

And of course there is the Hurst “His and Hers” shifter, as well as every factory option available including air conditioning, a remote control sideview mirror, and even an 8-Track player. This golden pimpmobile is sure to be the prize of any car collection, and we expect the bidding to near six-figures. What do you think a rare classic like this is worth?
