800 Derita Road, Ste. A
Never titled, ultra-low mileage, highly documented, and looking awesome: this 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix Richard Petty Edition has truly been treated like the collector car it is. So take extra time looking over this time capsule, but don't linger too long, because an opportunity like this may never come around again.
Richard Petty is a true American racing hero. So when he announced his retirement after the 1992 season, Pontic made sure to celebrate his career correctly. That means a limited run of 1,000 special edition coupes. Some of these hit the road and got used up in the daily grind. Other examples show far less wear from being Sunday drivers. But this example is truly a time capsule. It was one of only 32 officially delivered to Martinsville Speedway (where Petty holds the all-time win record.) Petty signed the seatback, and there's even a photo for evidence. Then the car was sent to a North Carolina dealership where it spent its first 19 years as a showpiece in a showroom. And under 130 miles on the odometer tell you that it also hasn't been used over the last decade since leaving the dealership. In fact, this coupe has never been titled, and so this is your opportunity to be the first name in the books (nearly 30 years after it was built!) While the history makes this car significant, its style is what makes it irresistible. The sleek Grand Prix body was finished in a true Petty light blue metallic. It has a showroom level of luster where the largest blemish you may ever pick up on comes from things like the car being washed - when was the last time you heard that complaint?! The full pinstripe package, special decals, and awesome color-accent wheels are all as pristine as a benchmark car should be.
Inside is a loaded Pontiac with plenty of special touches. The most obvious piece of rarity is Petty's actual signature on the seatback, and since that hasn't even been a private license plate put on this one, you know no one has spent any real time in the driver's seat. So it looks just as fresh as the day he put his Sharpie to the fabric. Still, it's also nice to have a collectible that's loaded with features, including power windows, power locks, power seats, tilt wheel, alarm, a powerful AM/FM/cassette stereo system, cruise control, and cold-blowing air conditioning. Everything is fresh and clean, right down to the buttons on Pontiac's unique multi-function steering wheel. Oh yes, and Petty signed the sun visor, too!
Under the hood is the original 3.4-liter V6 looking like a fresh and tidy time capsule. While you are likely to keep the preservation tradition alive, it's also worth noting that the twin DOHC setup makes for quite a peppy fuel-injected powerhouse that you should at least experience once in your lifetime (maybe on a neighbor's car.) Plus, power steering, an automatic transmission w/overdrive, four-wheel disc brakes makes for a nice grand touring Grand Prix.
The sale comes complete with two boards filled with great documentation. It includes the factory buildsheet, original window sticker, warranty card, dealer invoice, owner's manual, original inspection sheet, photos of Petty signing, and more. This is a fleeting opportunity to own a museum-quality coupe blessed by NASCAR royalty. It's time to get your hands on The King's biggest collectible. Call now!
