This 1969 Pontiac Grand Prix Model J is a survivor seems to have lived it whole life right here in Music City. It's particularly nice to have a car like this so well preserved, because it really shows off how Pontiac brought V8 performance and luxury to the market in equal measures.
This car really lives up to the "Grand" part of its name. After all, the factory-correct Expresso Brown is fashionable even in modern times. This is believed to be the original application, and while it has age, it still retains the kind of gloss that will make you proud to show this survivor. You'll even love the details, like the dealer tag on the rear. This car comes from an era of true style. That's why you get great pieces like the artful chrome grille that integrates into the front bumpers, padded vinyl roof, and a rear bumper that looks like an extension of the sheetmetal. Pontiac even had a little fun with the nomenclature by borrowing their upper trim level names from Duesenberg, like on this Model J. But even with all this luxury, GM's performance division wanted to give you a hint at the big V8 power within, so you have the iconic Rally II wheels.
More of this sporty feeling comes the moment you open the door. The original golden color looks well maintained everywhere, including on the door panels, dash, and factory three-spoke steering wheel. And it coordinates nicely with the right touches of wood-like trim. This has all the right details to be a well-preserved and vintage premium coupe. So you have the working AM radio, comfy cloth inserts in the seats, and provisions for factory air conditioning (will need servicing to blow cold again.) And while you have comfortable seating for up to five in this luxury cruiser, you'll also be just as happy to be on your own. After all, the bucket seats, center console, and curved dash envelope the driver.
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 this is believed to be the original motor. The bright turquoise on the block is an instant reminder that a survivor doesn't mean missing out on the right investments in maintenance and care. The same goes for the newer stainless dual exhaust. On the road, you have all the right features for an easy driving classic, including a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front.
This is an awesome survivor that is believed to only have two owners in its entire half-century history. The sale even comes with the original bill of sale, warranty card, and owner's manual. This amazingly preserved affordable cruiser is looking for someone to continue on its respected history. Are you the one? Call today!!!
