Description for Pontiac Grand Prix 1985

GP in very good condition. I bought the car about 15 years ago because I really loved the car and ordered one when new only to have it stolen twice, the second time which was striped bare. For all the years the Grand Prix was made with very few changes, just enough to tell one year from the next but of the hundreds of thousands of cars Pontiac made few seem to be around in original condition. This car has just under 48,000 miles. In the years since I bought it I have driven it very few times mostly to drive it and keep the battery charged and make sure everything is working properly, The air conditioning of course does not work because you can not obtain R-12. I looked into having it changed over and upgraded but the reality I only ever took the car to car shows and for these I never needed AC.
What's wrong with it? Not much. The GP is a Kentucky car and and I only drove it to car shows in the summer. It has no rust. However the car could your a paint job. It looks OK but it had a lot of dings when I bought it nut no dents, just little stuff. The window seals at the bottom of the window need to be replaced, they are cracked and if not covered the rain will get in and rust the door. I wanted to replace these but have no idea where to get them. The car has been covered since I owed it. The chrome trim needs to be spruced up. It has what looks like a film over it as it if was given a clear coat or something.
I replaced the radio it was working but the radio would go out. I replaced the radio with a better one, one that had an equalizer but the radio still did the same thing meaning the radio still works but there must be a loose connection somewhere causing the radio to cut out from time to time. The end result is that the car now has two clocks, an analog one in the dash and a digital one in the radio.
The drivers side door inside handle is broken so I have opened the window to close the door to avoid any other damage. This is because of poor manufacture. The handle was made with some sort of blow molded foam over the attaching bolt and it simply dried out and I have no idea how to fix it.
The car is a pleasure to drive, it is super comfortable with an amazingly tight turning radius and with with out the massive "A" pillars of modern cars the view is unobstructed. It is my favorite car to drive, ever. I am only selling it because I have other cars and mostly because I have no room for it so I it is time to let it go to a new owner.
