Classic Car Overview

1969 Pontiac Grand Prix Pontiac, bless its beak-nosed heart, turned out some truly unusual cars in 1969, an unforeseen consequence of General Motors crushingly expensive, inefficient car-for-everyone optioning strategy. Not all of them were GTOs, either. Some of the strangeness extended to Pontiacs still-novel personal-luxury coupe, the Grand Prix. Pontiac ad men of the day loved to stretch the images unnaturally wider, longer and lower than they were in real life. Thats what is called artistic license and if anyone took advantage of this trick, it was the automotive ad men who put the images down for newspaper and magazine pages. Such was done with the new for 1969 Grand Prix. For consignment, one of the 112,486 Grand Prix models that were built in this landmark year, as the car moved from the full-size Catalina chassis and its 121-inch wheelbase down to the new GM A-special platform with 118 inches between the front and rear wheels. In need of some TLC on the cosmetic front, but complete and drivable, they just dont make them like this anymore. Exterior Straight steel panels are bathed in a two tone mix of gold and candy red with the red taking over the roof at the beltline and the gold finishing off things down low. A few dings on the body, along with copious amounts of body filler is noted on nearly every panel. The gaps show as fairly uneven and a few of the body lines appear askew thanks to the body filler. With its beak nosed front chrome and bezels show some wear but are rust free. A side view shows no badging whatsoever but with the wheel arch molding, which gives a nice touch. A swept back B pillar frames good clear glass but has some rust bubbles on it and the lower rear window panel has the same. The rear bumper with inset taillights is as good as the front! Dual chrome tipped exhaust is seen under the bumper, and 15-inch Centerline wheels are all around and are wrapped in thin whitewall radials. Interior Mostly original with a few faults in the form of some tearing on the door handle (inside) and runners appearing in the custom red and yellow carpet on the bottom panel of the drivers side. The original black vinyl buckets are intact but show severe tearing, wear and seam separation particularly on the drivers bucket. A rear bench stretches side to side and remains tear free, meanwhile a black console races between the buckets. The vinyl covering on the console has a few chips and cracks, and houses the original wood topped shifter, as well as aftermarket speakers that have been added to the sides. A trio of deep circular gauges are in the angled inward dash covered with more textured black vinyl and some wood appliqu below. We note a modern AM/FM/CD player has been installed in the factory opening with the heater slides just above. The factory black plastic 3 spoke steering wheels tops the fixed position column. Red and gold carpet is below and is in good condition and continues up onto the rear package tray and a slightly saggy headliner hangs above. Drivetrain 400 cubes, circa 1968, of Pontiac excitement reside under the hood of this car but is not the original that this car was born with. A single 4-barrel carburetor is on top, and a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is on the back. Taking the power and torque from the Poncho mill is a 10-bolt rear axle. A patinaed presentation on the engine bay front, but no heavy rust is visible. Undercarriage Independent front suspension, and 4 link rear suspension, power disc brakes for the front and power drums for the rear, and dual Glasspack exhaust hang from a solid surface rusted and black frame, and undercarriage. Drive-Ability A solid car which starts quickly and runs swimmingly. It has nice acceleration, good handling with a few creaks and squeaks, and a smooth ride. Overall experience was all good. A nice example of the iconic Grand Prix, a recent refresh to be sure all is running well. Not perfect on the exterior and interior but just below acceptable range for its age, this is Pontiac dipping their toe into the muscle car genre. Beautiful styling from the designers and tried and true performance from the big V8 under the hood. Pick this one up and build your own Pontiac excitement right from within our Hallowed Halls.
