Hi all and thank you for allowing me to join!
I have a newly acquired 1 off special Pontiac, In 1973 Robert D Gwynn, an American Fashion designer and tailor (he made all of John De Lorean's suits) decided he would try and enter the luxury car market by creating his own style of car, this is what he came up with, based on a stock 1973 Grand Prix and heavily customised.
It has Solid Walnut fender ends, nose cone and mouldings, Walnut license plate frames, solid walnut door handles and trim, hand rubbed lacquer paint finish, completely restyled roofline, restyled front and rear ends, redesigned tail lights, moulded rear view mirror, landau roof and courtesy lights, totally redesigned instrument panel, glovebox and centre console finished in solid walnut, solid walnut and real leather door panels and armrests, hand tufted fine leather seats, front seat backrest of wool fabric featuring needlepoint design of buyers coat of arms (this one has the Gwynn family COA), cashmere and mink headlining, electrically operated sunroof, clear gearshift knob featuring coat of arms, special steering wheel made of leather solid walnut and chrome, new delux caprpeting, custom exhaust.
He tried to market and sell these cars for $50,000, needless to say this was the only one built. This car has only done 40,000 miles from new, it needs a few small jobs doing but is on the road and in very good condition, it has always been garaged and look superb, not to everyones taste but I love it, and I know I will never see another driving the other way. the photos are not the best so I will try and take some better ones and will post them if anyone is interested
