Pontiac took it to heart with its Grand Prix 35 years ago. This is one of 1,225 copies made only in 1986 and all were offered to Pontiac dealers in the southeast United States and this example comes from the State of Georgia. Recently, this 1986 Grand Prix 2+2 Aeroback received a professional restoration from a serious Pontiac 2+2 enthusiast who has multiple 2+2's in his collection. The restoration really shows experience as the recent high quality respray of Silver Metallic over Medium Gray Metallic is correct along with the new graphics. The interior fabrics are also restored and sourced from SMS for accuracy of the original hard to find materials. The exhaust is also new and professionally replicated to match the original factory exhaust. Recent service includes new exhaust, new belts, new radiator and hoses, new heater core, new plugs, wires, rotor, cap, new correct Rochester 4BBL carb with new linkage, new thermostat and new front and rear shocks. Made in GM's Ste-Therese factory in Quebec, Canada, the chosen Grand Prixs were then shipped to Auto-Fab Engineering in Ortonville, Michigan (now Clinton Township) for 2+2 modifications: a radically sloped urethane aero nose, blacked-out honeycomb grille, a front spoiler to direct more air into the engine bay, bubble rear glass and a fiberglass trunk lid with integral spoiler. The back window was developed in the wind tunnel on the race car before it was applied to the street version. The car's new correct Silver Metallic (#12-9301) over Medium Gray Metallic paint (#9302) and red trim are in overall excellent order, the bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is very tidy, as is the cargo area. The battery appears new and the urethane, body color bumpers with overriders look fantastic. This car rolls on Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 radials, size 215/65R15 at every corner. Each one is mounted on a Rally II (code N83) alloy wheel. The wheels are in excellent order while the tires are in very good condition and the car rides on the FE2 suspension. Under that counterbalanced hood is a 305 CID V-8 motor (code LG4) with a four-barrel carburetor (new), matched to a Turbo Hydramatic 200-4R four-speed automatic transmission (code MW9) with a 3.08:1 (code GU4) and a limited-slip differential (code G80). Driver convenience features include air-conditioning (code C60), power steering, power brakes with discs in front, power windows (code A31), power locks (code AU3), cruise control (code K34), tilt steering column (code N33), left- and right-hand sideview mirrors (code D35) and intermittent wipers (code CD4). The air conditioner was serviced in 2018 but is now missing the compressor belt but otherwise a complete system. Inside, the restored correct gray cloth and vinyl interior is in excellent order. The matching gray carpet is in good, original shape, while the matching new correct headliner and leather-wrapped steering wheel (code NP5) look great. The gray instrument panel and the inner door panels are both in good order but the temperature gauge is inoperable. The center console, with shift lever rounds out the interior along with a factory Delco-Bose AM/FM stereo with cassette deck. An updated taillight design with three sections was the only major change to the 1986 Grand Prix. A new 2+2 model was offered for homologation of an aerodynamic coupe body for NASCAR competition, like Chevrolet's 1986 Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe. (Pontiac never used the term "Aerocoupe" but the term "Aeroback" was thrown around). General Motors got spanked on the big ovals that largely comprised the growing NASCAR circuit. Even though Darrell Waltrip, in a Monte Carlo, won the championship, Bill Elliott, a.k.a. Awesome
