What a classy looking car! And we’re told in the ad that it’s a one-owner car (I have my doubts) as well. This 1973 Pontiac Grand Prix is located in Skillman, New Jersey and is being auctioned here on eBay, with bidding quite low but a low buy it now of $5,000 means I’ll bet this car sells!
Unfortunately, the seller doesn’t tell us a lot about the car or its history, which is a shame considering how pristine it looks. The seller does tell us that the paint shows its age when you get very close to it. The seller does tell us that it’s been stored in a heated garage for many years, but has now been prepared for driving duties.
I like the fact that someone thought enough of the car to get the historic “73 GP” license plates; it’s one indication that a car has been cherished. I don’t see any bubbling around the vinyl top, either, nor any rust anywhere else for that matter.
Just look at that beautiful interior! According to this 1973 Pontiac dealer training video on you tube, that’s real “African Crossfire Mahogany” wood, not the plastic version. Even the dash top looks surprisingly nice. I wonder what kept this car from being used up like most cars are? According to the listing, it only has 42,500 miles, and has the largest engine available, a 455 cubic inch V8, which was optional on this Model J trim level. I’d have a hard time believing it’s 142,000 given the state of the interior and general lack of corrosion, especially if it’s been in New Jersey for the whole time! What do you think? Is this a real survivor? And if it is, doesn’t this seem like a lot of car for the money? NADA shows low retail here at $7,604, with high retail being over $24,000! Let us know if you decide to pull the trigger!
