1972 Pontiac Grand Prix J
The late 1960s and early '70s were good times for Pontiac, their lineup offered just the right combination of performance and styling. The GTO had the performance market covered and the Catalina was there if you wanted spacious luxury. The Grand Prix was a good middle ground between the two. In my opinion, the Grand Prix was perfect for the buyer that wanted performance but preferred a more refined look and feel.
This pre gas crisis car has large straight steel panels, with some inconsistency in the gaps, particularly in the front hood and grille area. Consigner states original car (even the paint) just kept clean, and well maintained over its lifetime.
Sitting upon clean rally wheels wrapped in raised white letter Goodyear radials, this Cameo White covered car sports its consigner stated original paint. With complimentary white vinyl top, and chrome that is in good overall condition, exterior wise this car looks fab for a 47-year-old example.
Seeing Covert Beige coverings in a material lovingly known as Morrokide, I have no idea what it actually is, however it holds up well because the buttoned panels on all seating looks like new! It has remained clean, with no rips tears or even folds typically seen on used cars of this era. Nice carpeting with no marks covers the floor and has floor mats protecting it. A darker Covert Beige is seen on the padded dash, and this houses deep set round gauges and a clock. A strip of wood veneer has lighting, wipers, climate (manual) controls radio and ignition. A matching console slips between the buckets and appears very clean as well. One can always tell a well-maintained car from how dirt free it is in the dash area, and this one was well cared for. The headliner is nice and tight and as pristine as the rest of the interior.
A 400ci 4-barrel V8 matching numbers for engine and a 4-barrel carburetor drive a 3-speed Turbohydramatic (TH-400) automatic transmission. The engine appears unrestored; however maintenance records are available from the most recent owner.
Also original and very impressive on the little to no surface rust, structurally sound with clean floorpans next to solid frame. Rockers look really nice, and all is well underneath this large car.
All original, all working, and all inspiring as to the very good condition example this car presents as. A Model J which in GM code means a standard trimmed car although we do see body colored mirrors, and a Safe-T-Trac differential as addendums on options, according to the original window sticker which will come with this car.
