Classic Car Overview

By 1972, the era of full-sized luxury muscle was starting to die, just like the rest of the high-horsepower machines, but that didnt stop Pontiac from building cars like this ultra-cool 1972 Grand Prix. Theres still a rumbling 400-inch V8 under the hood, a pair of bucket seats inside, and enough performance to make it a legitimate piece of the Pontiac legend. Time has been kind to the Grand Prix, whose design stands out as one of the better ones of the period. Of course, long hoods and short decks have been in fashion since the dawn of the industry, but this Grand Prix gets it exactly right. A slight freshening for the 71 model year only helps, adding a neo-boat-tail rear end. This car has been nicely restored in its original Brittany Beige, which suits the upscale Poncho just fine, especially with the black vinyl top. Befitting a car of this ones stature, fit and finish are quite good, particularly with that massive hood sitting flush which is no small achievement. The big doors line up well, too, and the paint has a great gloss that seems well-suited to the period, neither too shiny like a modern car nor faded-looking like original paint. This one just looks right. Note the crisp line along the lower edges of the body that makes panel alignment so critical, as well as neat details like the slotted rear side marker lights and pinstripes that highlight some of the more dramatic sheetmetal curves. Thankfully, Pontiac took it easy on the chrome, using it sparingly on the tightly-fitted bumpers to make a statement, and they remain in great condition. Pontiacs commitment to luxury and performance is quite evident inside, where you get a comfortable black vinyl strato-bench up front. A wrap-around instrument panel was new and Pontiac advertising called it aircraft-inspired which might be a reach, but it sure looks good. The black seat covers have to be recent, as theyre just too nice to be original and those appear to be fresh carpets on the floor. However, the door panels are likely original and their condition suggests that this car has lived an exceptionally easy life. The car includes factory air conditioning, a tilt column, power brakes and steering (mandatory on a beast this size, Id think), and a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission thats a reliable travelling partner. The trunk is original and very spacious, but that also means that there are no secrets hiding under a mat, and you can see that this car is really clean. Mechanically, the numbers matching 400 cubic inch Pontiac V8 is hard to beat. Torquey, smooth, and versatile, it moves the big GP with ease. Not detailed for show, it takes its influences from contemporary Trans Ams and wears light blue on the block and maintains its original black snorkeled air cleaner. The intake and 4-barrel are stock spec, although the stock-style headers now feed a Flowmaster dual exhaust system. The underside is original and very solid, and the light dusting of undercoating does nothing to hide the fact that this car doesnt suffer from the tin worm like so many of its contemporaries. And those handsome Pontiac Rally II wheels look as good here as they do on its siblings, wearing big 225/70/14 BFGoodrich white-letter radials at all four corners. These cars have a dedicated following and with values only going up, now is the time to put a clean, attractive Grand Prix in your stable. With only 99,810 actual miles on the clock, it may very well be the best preserved one on the market. Call today!
