Vehicle Description

Bold, vintage, loaded, and luxurious, this 1972 Pontiac Grand Prix Model J has true classic car distinction. Check out all the details, from the big numbers-matching V8 under the hood to the comfy bucket seat interior, and you'll soon understand what 1970s personal luxury was all about.

This car understands how to maximize its appeal. The Model J designation was borrowed from Duesenberg as part of a way to show these were premium machines, and the details really justify this. From the flush-fitting pop-out door handles, to the way the headlights gracefully rise above the front sheetmetal, this Grand Prix has timeless grand style. The Sundance Orange paint is an awesome color when you want people to take notice. It has the hint of age you want on a classic car, and the bold hue goes with this coupe's bold styling. The long pointed hood, sharp creases in the fenders, and the artful lines of the trunk make a true stamen about classic style. Plus, there's no better way to show off a hardtop profile than with a vinyl roof. The white top is not only distinct against the orange paint, but also coordinates with the full-length pinstriping. Also, 1972 was one of the final years before new bumper laws took effect, so these chrome kings really know how to hug the body lines.

We love it when the roof color is also a preview of the interior color. This white interior radiates with a premium style, and everything looks both clean and highly original - right down to the taut headliner. It reflects a car that's been treated with respect all its life, and where it's easy to believe the odometer reflects the car's actual mileage (barely averaging over 900 miles annually.) Personal luxury means a high-back bucket seat finished with a button-top design, a center console, and a dash that wraps around you. Pontiac's three-spoke steering wheel has some tasteful wood-like trim and so does the dash. Plus, your gauges are set deep into a three-pod design like a European sports car. There are even some terrific factory features, like air conditioning (will need servicing) and the factory AM/FM radio with the separate 8-track player behind the seat. So this is truly period-correct luxury cruising.

Under the hood is Pontiac's legendary 400 cubic-inch V8. This is the numbers-matching unit for the car, and it has the crisp look of proper care. The V8 fires up readily as it inhales deeply from the four-barrel carburetor. It's a well-respected package, and that makes it a great classic for the road. Features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front continue this easy cruiser feeling. You even have modern Hankook tires on the classic Rally II wheels.

The sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet, original warranty card, and owner's manual. This is a distinct and vintage machine offered for a terrific price. So you know you don't want to miss this Pontiac. Call today!!!
