** Serious collectors only need inquire!
** 1977 Pontiac Gran Prix LJ (engine 301 V8).
** First a little history!!!
You would be purchasing this Gran Prix from the original owner! The car was ordered in August of 1976 from Malkerson Olds Pontiac in Shakopee, Minnesota. I took delivery of it on October 19, 1976.
This Grand Prix has never been in an accident nor has ever incurred even a dent.
I have records in a three-ring binder of everything ever done mechanically with this Grand Prix (which frankly, hasn't been much of anything).
From May through July 28, 1989, LaMettry's Body Shop, Richfield, Minnesota (known for its work on foreign cars and Corvettes), completely restored this Grand Prix. I have photos of it from the naked frame to completion. The reason for the restoration? To make it look like show room condition and for me to keep as a collector car with many family memories. This 1977 year was the last year made of this style and size.
The mileage on October 20, 1988, was 109,449. (I used this car in my privately owned business.) The mileage on June 16, 2016, was 139,160. Hence, over these last 28 years, only 29,711 miles have been put on. Reason? The car has been put in storage from October through April of each year. It has been stored in an enclosed building at the Farmington (Minnesota) County Fairgrounds.
The car has never been driven in snow since it was restored in 1989.
As photos will display, it is white with red padded roof. It has Hurst T-Roof Factory installed T-roofs, normal features such as power steering, power windows, power brakes, cruise control, original wheels, air conditioning, bucket velour seats.
The following servicing centers have worked on this Gran Prix: original dealer, Dred Scott Service Center (one mile from our home), and Goodyear Service Center (3.5 miles from our home). That's it!!
The reason for this sale? Our age and downsizing.
What's wrong with this car? If I were to keep it, I would fine tune the cruise control, fix the clock and the weather stripping around the windows.
To the new buyer:
This car is for viewing and fun to get thumbs up when out driving. That's what I have enjoyed all these years. Lots of thumbs up.
