Very desirable 6.6 liter, 4-speed with WS-6 performance package. This is a PHS documented car with vin # matching motor and trans. Same owner the last 10 years. He purchased from a Pontiac collector that only has 4-speed cars, no exceptions. It's a very clean, honest T/A.

EXTERIOR: The body is a virgin. No rust or damage. Tap on the bottom of the fenders and it sounds metal, there's no bubbling along the bottom of the doors, around the rear wheel well lips still has the factory spot welds, the lower quarters are dry clean. All the gaps are right on. Not even a door ding. It has had a one time repaint in it's original Cameo white color. They did an excellent job, as good as factory or better. I've just walked around it twice and honestly don't see a flaw. New decals including hood bird. Tail light panel is excellent, trim around the glass is repainted. The window seals and weather strips have been replaced. The WS6 package included wider 8 inch wheels, which are really one of my favorite wheels of all times. They are in excellent shape, the center caps look new. Has sport mirrors, shaker hood and spoilers.

INTERIOR: Excellent condition from carpet to headliner. Really, it is all excellent. Carpets look new, has GM floormats. The upholstery, door panels, headliner is all mint. All the bits and pieces like the console, armrests, window cranks, plastic trim, kick panels, visors etc are mint. The formula steering wheel is excellent. Dash area is excellent. The machine turned bezel is not worn, has rallye gauges, clock even works. Has Am-Fm Delco stereo. Interior lights work, inside the glove box is clean and it has an owner's manual.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Looks like it's right off the assembly line. Everything is very tidy, proper and detailed. The shaker hood assembly is complete with ductwork. 400 motor is neatly painted, has correct chrome valve covers. All the vacuum lines are properly run. All the brackets, pullys, hoses, fan shroud etc are clean. Brake booster looks new. It has factory air conditioning, updated to R134a freon.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: I open the trunk and the light works. Bottom of the trunk lid is painted real nice, has the decals. Very clean and tidy, has the black felt mat. Original collapsible spare has never been used. Jack assembly is restored.

UNDERSIDE: The front end components look new- ball joints, bushings etc. Has sway bar. Bottom of motor is clean, fuel pump and starter look new. The vin stamped on the block matches car. Has wide ratio Muncie 4-speed, vin stamp also matches car. In back shocks have been replaced, has posi rear and sway bar. There are disc brakes at all four wheels, e-brake is hooked up. Has dual exhaust system with two small catalytic converters and original splitter tips in back. Completely solid. The floors, rockers, frame rails and even lower inner 1/4s are clean original metal.

I'll tell you what, this is a clean car. Everything about it is proper and clean. It functions and shows like new. I just told the salesmen this is a really good car they can be confident about.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.

Don't be intimidated, contact sales now for a no pressure, no hassle experience!
