Amazing 14k Mile Survivor: 1975 Pontiac Grand Prix

This stunning 1975 Pontiac Grand Prix is located in Hubbard, Ohio. The car has had only one owner and have traveled only 14,560 miles since new. As you might expect, the bids are coming in pretty heavy and, with 4 days remaining in the auction, the price has risen to $20,700. The Grand Prix was popular in 1975 with 86,582 units sold. You can see more pictures and place your bid here on eBay for this remarkably preserved Grand Prix.

The white interior with black console and dash look new. Typically, you see white seats start to yellow over time. These seats are stunning and probably look the same as the day the car was purchased back in March 1975. The seller states that the car was bought by a lady in in Ashtabula, Ohio and that she drove it until 1982 and then parked it in her garage where it said until her passing. The interior options include power driver’s seat, air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, power locks, rear defrost and AM/FM stereo.

The original L78 400 cubic inch V8 engine equipped with a 4 barrel Quadrajet carburetor sits between the fenders. This engine was the same engine used in the Pontiac Trans Am in 1975. The L78 6.6. liter engine provided a reliable 180 horsepower.

As you can see, the car is equipped with front and rear “bumperettes” which were bumper guards that could be added as an option. The original wheels were replaced by the seller with Pontiac Rally II wheels and BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires. Originally, the car had full wheel covers and whitewall tires.

The Bimini blue paint looks to be in excellent condition and there is no mention of rust on the body or the frame. Examining the engine compartment is sometimes an indication or whether their is rust below the car and it looks very clean. All the panels look straight and the white landau vinyl top looks as white as the front bucket seats. The seller states that even the clock still works!

    This is a really nice example of a mid 70’s Gran Prix. Someone is going to really be happy with this car! GLWTA!! :-)

    Amazing condition overall and in a very attractive color. It’s an impressive looking car, despite those oversized bumpers. Not my cup of tea but I can certainly see the appeal. It’s not surprising to see such strong bidding and I have a feeling it’s probably going to sell for good money.

    Nice and looks brand new. Takes you right back to the era of those cool and weird “black background” Pontiac brochures which, to my knowledge, have never been repeated since..

    A neighbor had a new ’74 that was silver with black vinyl roof and interior. I still remember it well. GLWTS

    This takes me back. In high school my first car was a 74 marroon one with the exact same interior. Loved it. Pretty quick as well.

    I always loved the styling on these and it seemed like the GM design cues “hid” the larger bumper in front better than other GM models. A lady across the street owned this model from new and never had a bit of trouble with it.

      Gorgeous example of a Colonnade.

      These are finally coming into their own, and for good reason. Great cars, and really nice, well equipped ones like this are increasingly hard to come by.

      I have a spotless loaded 76 Grand LeMans Sport Coupe survivor with only 14K original miles on her (yes, complete with skirts!). When I take her out to the shows and the Cars and Coffees it is amazing the amount of attention that she gets. Even the younger generations walk right by all of the plebium Lamborghinis and McLarens to ask questions and take pictures of her. Too fun.

      Were it not for that (and a severe lack of room) I would be in the mix on this one for sure. Someone is going to wind up with what appears to be a jewel.

        I, too, find it unfair the Colonnades have been overlooked for so many years. While not a muscle car this one should offer decent performance for a 70s cruiser. Very unusual, timeless color combo for a mid70s vehicle and in shockingly preserved condition – this GP deserves to be taken seriously 👍

    It’s already reached what I’d be willing to shell out with reserve still not meant, but this is a gorgeous example. My guess is that the undercarriage is also in great shape but it would have been nice to see a pic or two. Watching just to see what the reserve is. My guess is north of $25k.

    Wow, I really appreciate a car like this. Well preserved, nice colors and options, low mileage, but not so high in value that you are afraid to use it. This is a win-win for both the seller and the buyer. My daughter was saying today that the trend of black interiors is boring.

    Anyone remember when you could get rally IIs at the junkyard for 20 bucks a wheel? I got my 77 GP as a recovered theft that came in with a broken column and no radio or wheels. The owner took the money and ran, and I got the car for free. Wheels and tires, a radio out of a car going to the yard across the street.

    Yep, they were $25.00 at our salvage yard in the early 80s. We used to run these and the Chevy “corvette” style rally wheels on our Enduro cars because they were wider and beefier than stock wheels . Hindsight is 20/20 – I wish we had saved those wheels we trashed !

    Like a dumb ass, I sold my mint low mile 77 SJ in 2006 for $4,500. It had 37 factory options including Hurst Hatches and snowflakes. No rust North Carolina car. Thanks to a cop friend of mine, I tracked it down in Texas, but the guy won’t sell. Most comfortable car ever and best looking GP in history. Now, you can’t find these. Woulda shoulda coulda. Beautiful car. Someone is going to get a beauty. Lot of money thought.

    I own a 73 Grand Prix SJ 455, factory sunroof loaded car, Black, white interior and White vinyl half roof, Spokes, Vogues, beautiful car, not low miles like this one, but fully restored and rebuilt, curious to see where this one goes

    Beautiful car! These are really nice driving machines. A tweak here and there can make any of the smog-era cars run well.

    This car was re-listed as a 25K Buy It Now and sold at that price.
