Description for Pontiac Grand Prix 1978

Unbelievable one owner from new. Always kept in garage, not smoked in and no pets. This is a 41-year-old car with all original paint and upholstery, in superb condition. It has the original 8 track tape player and even comes with some of the original 8 track tapes.

Comes with original owner’s manual and original 8 track/radio instructions.
Engine is the Pontiac 301 V8 with the TH350 transmission on the column. Starts, runs and drives well. Tires have lots of tread, but are dated coded and older. Probably need replaced for safety. No rust anywhere I can find. Idaho is a high arid desert climate and is excellent for preserving classics.
This is a factory A/C car and it appears to have a brand-new compressor and the Interstate battery is new. All the bells and whistles of a cruiser luxury car.
How many 41-year-old all original cars like this are still out there?? NADA Price report show the average retail for this car at $8,189 and the high retail at $14,160. This car meets the description for a High Retail car. Reserve is set below the average retail for this car. It is selling!!
This belonged to my senior brother who passed away in 2019. Before he passed away, he titled it to me in 2009 and I have started it and taken it out for short drives once a month to keep the oil and seals in good condition. To my knowledge, everything works on this car. I've kept it for long enough and it is time to let somebody else use and enjoy this 70's classic cruiser.
Paint color is a metallic maroon, but in some light it looks more like a root beer brown color. Interior is original red and orange from the period.
BTW...the odometer only shows 5 digits and says 38,924.6 miles, but we know it turned over 100,000 miles from the service records.

If you have any questions about condition reach me at 208-345-1400 Kurt. Thanks for looking. We have it advertised locally and reserve to sell locally and terminate auction early.
