1985 Pontiac Grand Prix LE
Offering full-sized comfort and rear-wheel-drive prowess, this 1985 Pontiac Grand Prix was the top-of-the-line machine that continues to have timeless appeal. These cars practically defined the '80s with their long hood and short deck design, and it has never gone out of style.
For consignment, a two-tone airbrushed looking paint job with some Billet Specialty wheels and low-profile tires. We are ready to troll this skate through the neighborhood and see what we end up with in passengers or other scores. Garnished with a consigner stated 400ci Chevy small block engine, and a TH350 turbo trans, rear opera window on the B pillar, and straight rust-free steel we are firmly in Snazzy-land in classic form.
Square and rectangle design abounds and one would think this car invented it. Rectangular headlights, an egg crate grille and rubber strip adorned front bumper, a stalk mounted sprung hood ornament just above, and blow the trumpets, you have arrived. BUT that's not all... Let's bathe all this rust free straight paneled steel in two tone blue with a fuzzy delineation between the two, plenty of stainless for the wheel well surrounds and wide rocker coverings and I'd say we're stylin'. Long doors allow access to the passenger compartment where you can drive within the lap of luxury. Where your back seat passengers may take the opportunity to watch the world go by through tinted opera B pillar glass adorned with the 'Merican Flag decals. On the back is more square and rectangle shaped metal and plastic red tail lighting and a shiny bumper below. Interestingly the delineation is utilizing a series of thin white horizontal stripes to make the fade even seem softer...Capitol Idea! Polished Billet Specialties 5 spoke wheels are wrapped by BF Goodrich low profile tires, and we can see the larger SSBC Force 10 2 piston calipers for the front, painted in red. I pulled a 4 alarmer!
A swing of the long doors which have nicely preserved near showroom quality dark blue velour broadcloth intermixed with some molded plastic, aluminum satin finished panels for the power windows and side view mirror joystick, and a log carpeted bluer panel below we are ready to climb in. Doing so we plant our butts in medium blue velour high back buckets with headrests. These show in some tuck and roll, and some smooth bolsters and are looking just fine baby bear. A blue center console sporting a storage compartment. Wood appliqu shift housing and a shiny red arrowhead emblazoned badge just prior to its ascent where it meets with the center dash with an EQ equipped AM/FM/Cassette radio and the temp sliders. Just above several wood burl panels house plenty of eyeball A/C vents, round gauges for extra monitoring of the vitals and of course the large round speedo and tachometer. For driver's left more eyeball vents are sitting comfortably near the doors. A padded crack free blue dash top is undulating up and down across the front passengers, and the original steering wheel is fronting this dash. Blue carpeting floods the floors, and in back a bucket matching pattern blue velour bench is firmly mounted between the opera glass windows. We note that a very smooth blue headliner is above.
Line up for your tickets because now showing under the hood is a Consigner stated 400ci 425hp V8. On top is a 4-barrel carburetor and on back a TH350 3-speed automatic trans. The rear axle is the 10-bolt variety and has 3.42 posi-traction gears. This engine shows some slight patina and dust but is still looking just fine!
No rust just black stamped and welded straight steel all over. A red torque converter is seen and adds to the red calipers which are on either side for the power front disc brakes. On back are power drum brakes and a 4 link with coil springs with Hotchkis control arms in the back. 2-inch drop spindles for the independent coil sprung suspension in front. A like new Flowmaster exhaust is tilted on for the exhale and great sound for the motor head in you.
A quick starter, and great runner, smooth shifting and bias free panic stopping, all comfy interior make this a very nice find for this year. Also, a mere 20K miles have been put on since all the new fixins' have been painstakingly slapped on.
Awesome faded two tone, Billet Specialties 15 inch polished wheels. Straight rust free steel and all that mid 80's square and rectangle body design, a nice blue interior, and a heftier engine and my friends we have traveled back in time but nothing looks as good as the present on this classic.
