This 1968 Pontiac Grand Prix is a low-mileage survivor right down
to its well-coordinated paint. So not only does a coupe like this
give you a great story to tell, but also it still perfectly
represents how Pontiac brought V8 performance and luxury to the
market in equal measures.
That's the factory-correct code-Q Verdoro Green. Earthy greens are always a great '60s color, and this perfectly represents a car that has been frozen in time. You're looking at the first and only application of this green, and that will wow everyone considering the level of gloss and shine that still impresses even as this original hue approaches the half-century mark. And more than just an impressive survivor, the Grand Prix is a true style master with all the right premium touches. It includes the desirable eight-lug wheels, crease in the sheetmetal that runs unbroken down the entire profile, fender skirts, and GTO-style taillights. But the piece that everyone loves the most on this coupe is the bold front end. Concealed headlights were only offered for two years, and the way the total package integrates with the front bumper and the sheetmetal is a great reminder that stylists ruled the carmakers in this era.
The other part of this car's color code is an "8", which added a gold vinyl roof. We not only love it for the premium appearance it gives the exterior, but also we love how it's a cool preview of the interior, too. The original gold interior has been so well maintained that you can still see the detail in the Strato-style bucket seats. Plus, the center console means the driver gets true individual luxury no matter if you've got friends along or you're just solo cruising. You'll slip behind the artful and skinny factory steering wheel that gives you a clear view of the wide speedometer and full length wood paneling. The whole interior feels original and premium, so you'll be proud to roll down all the windows at the car show and let people have a good view at all this pillarless hardtop has to offer.
Pontiac's legendary 400 cubic-inch V8 is hard to beat. Torquey, smooth, and versatile, it easily allows this Grand Prix to live up to its effortless cruiser image. On a coupe this authentic so far, you'll be happy to know it retains the original numbers-matching motor. On the road, you have all the right features for an easy driving classic, including a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and the grip of modern Falken tires.
This survivor comes with a full file, including original bill of sale, owner's manual, and Pontiac Historic Services (PHS) documentation. There are even maintenance records that show you when this coupe went into hibernation. It's a true stunning survivor with all the right paperwork to back it up, and so you know it won't stay here long at this price. Call today!!!
