Like its GTO brethren, the original Pontiac Grand Prix highlighted a unique niche in the new car market. Combining the affordability of the brand's full-size Catalina with the luxury of its line-topping Bonneville, the car proved a relatively simple and very successful formula. That said, by 1971 Pontiac's newest hit was facing serious competition from the Oldsmobile Cutlass and Chevrolet Monte Carlo. That means cars like this pristine Model J have become seriously scarce. Wrapping 400 cubic inches of original Pontiac V8, rolling restoration, this superb G-Body is a fully documented wonder. And if you're looking for some unique and impressive metal that your bank won't require multiple signatures to finance, it's a prime candidate for your next classic!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Born at GM's ill-fated Lakewood Assembly, this awesome Poncho is the beneficiary of a detailed; rolling restoration that massaged every square inch of its sculpted profile into pristine, show-worthy condition. Completed in 2014, that transformation saw the car's panels stripped all the way down to bare metal. With those surfaces smooth and clean, a thick layer of primer was buried in 1996 Ford Medium Willow Green 2-stage. That PPS was capped in correct white vinyl. And today, this first class hardtop combines the best aspects of storied Tin Indian performance with the kind of old school style.

Tough, understated and attractive, this Grand Prix perfectly defines Pontiac's lasting legacy of tempering aggression with sophistication. The front of the car, dominated by a bold beak that's a clear throwback to pre-war Pontiacs, anchors chrome-capped headlights between aggressive corner lamps. Above that beak, a muscular hood balances a familiar tach and correct, recessed wipers opposite a bright arrowhead. Behind that bonnet, NOS stainless frames correct glass while bright mirrors reflect conservative "GRAND PRIX" scripts. And at the back of the car, a heavy bumper founds wide taillights between small reflectors, a small "MODEL J" badge, polished stainless steel exhaust tips and a third "GRAND PRIX" script.

ENGINE

Peer under the long hood and you'll find 400 cubic inches of original Pontiac V8 .030 overbore. At the top of the mill, Elderbrock aluminum intake and an Elderbrock 750cfm carburetor. That air/fuel mixture floods with 6X heads, which hide hardened valve seats under stock rocker and chrome Elderbrock valve covers. Those valves get bumped by a Crower hydraulic cam, which rides above a stock balanced crank. The fires get lit by HEI electronic ignition, which sequences spark between a performance coil, fresh 8mm Hi-Temp Radio Suppression cables and an MSD 6AL amplifier. Below those wires, coated Headman long tube headers make quick work of spent gases. At the front of those tubes, fresh V-belts spin a polished alternator between correct power steering and an old school Frigidaire compressor that's sequenced to correct air conditioning (AC need charging). A high pressure oil pump, a 4-row radiator and a correct aftermarket brake booster keep the fluids flowing. Items like ARP bolts, double roller timing components and a K&N filter round out a stock breather of reliable details. This is a numbers matching car. The heads was replaced with 6x heads. I still have the original heads and will go with the car.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Logging only sunny day miles and car shows since their restoration, this coupe's body-matched floors and chassis are completely free of significant issues and major defects. The stout 400 twists a stock converter, which commands a correct Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed. That chrome-trimmed torque slinger grinds power to a rebuilt GM 10-bolt, which hides NOS 3.31 gears and a limited slip differential behind a polished inspection cover. That drivetrain rides a stock suspension, which supplements stock sway bars and boxed rear control arms with new coils front and back, Gabriel front shocks, Gabriel air shocks rear and PST Energy Suspension bushings up front and a correct combination of power-assisted discs and drums braking. Turns come courtesy of a rebuilt factory power steering. Factory optioned with dual exhaust, this Pontiac is presently equipped with a 2.5-inch Flowmaster American Thunder system, which balances an H-shaped crossover in front of dual-chamber mufflers. And a quartet of polished Rally IIs, shod with 235/60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As.

INTERIOR

Open the solid doors and you'll find a largely original interior that's been tweaked where it counts. Front and center, tight white vinyl shrouds a correct combination of bench and bucket seats. The 400's vitals are displayed by familiar Rally Gauges which, along with a correct pushbutton radio and factory air conditioning, hang in a stainless and wood-trimmed dash. Clean carpet floats a correct console, complete with a "GP" branded shifter, between correct foot pedals and tough Pontiac floor mats. At the sides of the car, pliable door panels front correct manual windows. Behind the passengers, a correct trunk lid with remote trunk release. And keeping it old school is an AM radio with one center speaker. WHO NEED MUSIC! LISTEN TO THE EXHAUST NOTE!
