Description for Pontiac Grand Prix 1972

It's not often you come across a coveted early-'70s cruising machine that boasts the level of originality of this 1972 Pontiac Grand Prix Model J. It features its original colors both inside and out, along with what is almost certainly the very same big block it began with, still pulling with gusto from beneath the hood. It's a long, stylish ride that also comes complete with its factory build sheet to attest to its authenticity, along with the original dealer... invoice and warranty card to add some historical perspective. With its distinctive styling, generous proportions and electric green paint, this Pontiac has some serious curb appeal. It occupies an aesthetic territory often sought after yet seldom attained - visually embodying its era while at the same time looking different from its counterparts. Long in the hood and offering a sloping rear roofline, its muscle car influence is obvious. It's not only decked out in its original color, but largely the original paint and it presents impressively well, with a consistently smooth texture. Up front, a pair of close-set headlights straddle a compact, pointed grille - a defining styling cue for Pontiacs during this era - and the bumpers at both ends are in excellent shape. The accompanying vinyl top, another aesthetic cornerstone during this time, is also in top form - judging from its unusually fresh condition, this Grand Prix has spent most of its down time safely sheltered indoors. <BR. Take a peek inside and you'll see an interior that represents the retro-styling of its decade as ably as any you're likely to come across. It's in unusually fresh condition for any classic, let alone one that's more than 45 years old, with broad, comfortable front buckets that mix vinyl and cloth to excellent effect as they straddle a clean factory center console. A nice by product of the Grand Prix's substantial cabin is the legroom available for your backseat passengers - they should have no problem getting comfortable in this classic. Up front, the dash area is another strong feature, with its array of clear and functional factory gauges recessed inside an instrument panel whose woodgrain accent, like the others ornamenting the cabin, is as clean as they come and a supple, uncracked dash pad running across the top. The spacious trunk area has been well-maintained, with a fresh rubber seal positioned below the deck lid to keep the elements out and a full-sized spare resting securely inside. The road-readiness of this Pontiac is outstanding. It's propelled by a 400 cubic inch V8, almost certainly the original motor, that sits in a stock but nicely maintained engine bay with its 4-barrel carb on top, just underneath the factory black air cleaner. The engine really runs great, starting up promptly and showing plenty of power as it pairs with a 3-speed automatic TH400 that shifts with exceptional ease, to round out a highly functioning vintage drivetrain. By the time this '72 rolled out, rear coil springs had become far more prevalent, so the ride is smooth and quiet. Power steering makes navigating nice and easy, while power brakes that place discs up front bring the set of 15" American Racing mag wheels to dependable stops. The clean undercarriage below will confirm that this classic rides on a very solid foundation that's well positioned for plenty more future miles of fun. In the market for a great looking cruiser that's ready, willing and eager to hit the road just as soon as you get it home and will turn heads with its nostalgic style?
