The Long Wait is OVER! The '67 Grand Prix is Here...

The Unveiling of the 1st FACTORY COLORS at the NJ Show 11/17/19

NOTE:  A "Premium" collectible slot car deserves a Premium Package.  The HAC Enterprise '67 Grand Prix comes complete with a Custom "3D" Jewel Display Box at No Extra Charge!


The '67 Pontiac Grand Prix has been an obsession of mine for decades.  I actually own a '67 GP Convertible, and I love it!  I always knew that someday I would create and configure this legendary Sport Luxury car in HO Scale.  Since the car was NEVER offered in any scale by the major model car companies, it immediately became evident that "realizing the dream" would be a serious CHALLENGE!  The '67 Grand Prix HAD TO BE BUILT FROM SCRATCH...


The technology in Digital Computer Aided Design software, aka CAD has been available for many years.  I began playing with AUTO CAD back in the mid 1980's.  As hardware development began to improve exponentially in the 90's, the software choices and availability became more robust and increasingly affordable.  In recent years PC CAD Tools had become very user friendly, as well as very affordable.  The stage was set to create an entirely NEW HO TJet, the 67 Grand Prix would be the 1st...  

CARS ARE BEING PAINTED & ASSEMBLED RIGHT NOW!

There will be a variety of FACTORY COLORS being introduced beginning  right after the 11/17 HO Slot Car Show.  They will be EXCLUSIVELY available from HAC Enterprise.  Click on the Button shown below to be taken to the area where you can begin to shop for your '67 Pontiac GRAND PRIX.

PONTIAC gave us the "Wide Track"

 The 1967 Pontiac Grand Prix is one of the most beautiful automotive designs of the 1960s.  Pontiac is famous for inventing the concept of “Wide Tracking” and taking performance to a higher level.  Pontiac introduced the widest automobile in the industry for the 1959 model year.  Wide Tracking became famous with each subsequent model year.  Boasting one of the widest stances for 1967 was the Pontiac Grand Prix convertible.

 

 The Pontiac Catalina provided the foundation for the luxurious Grand Prix. It was an immediate success.  (Style code #266-67) 1967 Grand Prix convertible had a base price of $3,813 and only 5,856 were built, which makes this a highly collectible car. This is the only year the Grand Prix was offered as a convertible.

PONTIAC combined "Beauty & the Beast" into a LEGEND...

 Pontiac proved performance need not be limited to the sport models…as witnessed by the elegant Grand Prix convertible.  Luxury and performance made the Grand Prix one of America’s premiere personal luxury coupes.  “Pontiaction” dominated the 1950s and 1960s with a style that was imitated but never replicated…the 1967 Pontiac Grand Prix convertible is a dramatic expression of Wide Tracking in its most luxurious form.  

image11

This car needs its own ZipCode!

  The silhouette is unmistakably Pontiac. It is long, low, and wide. The Grand Prix convertible is the supreme example of elegant restraint. The sweeping contours of the body sides are augmented by classic fender skirts. With the top down, the architecture spans for miles…it appears longer than it is. The Pontiac Grand Prix has set standards for personal luxury cars since its inception. The 1967 Grand Prix ragtop doesn’t know whether it wants to be a luxury convertible or a high-performance convertible…so it does both quite well...  

Video: All new & aggressive styling

 

The 1967 model year offered a completely restyled Grand Prix.  The signature features for the Grand Prix includes hide away headlamps with its parking lamps concealed behind vent-like structures atop the front fenders. These styling cues weren’t shared with any other full-size Pontiac.  

Kids my age often called the 67 GP  "The Batmobile!" 


The massive hood contours flow forward into the “Pontiac-style” grille divider. The windscreen wipers are concealed so as not to interrupt the Grand Prix’s sweeping design. The rear end styling of the Grand Prix was also unique to this model. The taillamps are beautifully integrated into twin slots. Its clean uncluttered look is understated yet totally luxurious. 

A look at the '67 pontiac grand prix "hurst" car

This 1967 Pontiac Hurst Grand Prix convertible was one of the fleet of famous Hurst promotional cars used in events and parades. 


After the 1967 season it was purchased by George Hurst’s secretary Rosalie Brewstein, who drove it daily for years. After being in storage for almost two decades, it was carefully restored by its fourth owner over a 28-month period and completed in 2010, when at the SEMA show it was shown to a delighted Linda Vaughn.

CAD rendering the hac enterprise 67 grand prix

The development of the exclusive HAC Enterprise HO Scaled TJet 1967 Pontiac Grand Prix was 2 years in the making.  Unlike many desirable automobiles, which had supporting 1/25 scaled "Promotional" models and/or Model Kits, the '67 Grand Prix did not!   So this car was essentially created from scratch.    


HAC demanded exacting parameters for Quality and Scale, which would excite the world-wide HO Scale Collectors.  It appears that HAC Enterprise exceeded all expectations! 

Some early rough prototypes

6 Months Prior to the Planned Fall 2019 Launch

Please NOTE that this picture was from the earlier stages of development.  No Body Details, No Interior, No Badges, etc.      The first challenges included the precise scaling of the GP to fit the TJet "long wheelbase" and to ensure optimum concealment of the DASH chassis.  Great care was given to morphing the design to deliver body dimensions which complimented a similar class of car in Tjet form.  HAC chose the '63 Riviera to be the standard.  Given the dimensions of the actual car, it was obvious that certain adjustments were required. The Pontiac's "Wide Track" and "Low Stance" HAD to be evident in the final piece.  This took investments in TIME & COST, but the overall results indicate those extra steps were worth it.

"ATTENTION to DETAILs"

It takes extraordinary "ATTENTION to DETAILs" to bring into reality an Automotive Legend from the Past...  The HAC Enterprise Team brings a unique and relentless passion to creating an entirely new HO Scale Slot Car from scratch.  The 1967 Pontiac Grand Prix Convertible had never been made available in either a factory dealer "Promo Car" nor Model Kits!  HAC Enterprise took on the task. 


Two plus years were spent in research and development with the finest team of artists, technical specialists and modelers, which shared the same passion for classic Pontiacs as HAC Enterprise.  Several iterations of the 67GP were "spawned and honed" before attaining the final masterpiece.   The HAC Enterprise Team is proud to offer to the discriminating HO Slot Car Collector the absolute best that can be crafted.

The 67 Grand Prix is For Sale @ NJ SHOW 11/17/19!

It Sits Long - Low & Wide

The 67 Grand Prix Ragtop in TJet form is still an unmistakable "WIDE TRACK" Pontiac.  Very little of the DASH Chassis will be exposed, Just like a Real Car!  Check out the Fender Skirts...

We Called it The Batmobile as Kids!

image15

Growing up in the 1960's, we kids got to watch BATMAN on TV and we referred to the 67 Pontiac Grand Prix as The Batmobile...!

This is a Family Car!

The Chassis fits sweetly "Under the Skirts"

image17

Great care was taken during development of the 67 Grand Prix to ensure the DASH TJet Chassis is essentially "Hidden" from view. The Fender Skirts add a deserved element of "Class" to this car.  This satisfying result delivers a Low Profile Look for this Classic "WIDE TRACK" Pontiac...
