1973 Pontiac Grand Prix: Dusty Poncho

1973 Pontiac Grand Prix

One score and five years ago ( or just 25), this Pontiac Grand Prix went into storage. It had supposedly been pampered all of it’s life, up until that point. From that day forward, it was left to survive in the barn on its own. It acquire a thick layer of dust, dirt, and what I can only assume is bird droppings. Still, it appears to have survived the years with minimal damage. This is one find I would love to help wash off, I can only imagine how exciting it will be to wash away all those years of dirt to reveal the original paint underneath. I have a feeling though, that it will also reveal rust issues. If you would like to have the privilege of washing off this Pontiac, you can find it here on craigslist in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (only a short distance from where President Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address) for $2,500 or best offer. You could even make the trip to get it a family vacation! So would you make this dust covered classic yours? Special thanks to Chevy55 for this tip!

    It looks like a nice body is supporting all that dirt. Is there a soap and water shortage in Gettysburg? I wonder what the interior looks like?

    Seems like it wasn’t very many years ago when the owner of this car would’ve been thrilled to get a couple hundred dollars and his garage space back.

    P.S. “babied its whole life” ≠ photo above.

    That looks like a 74 to me, my mom had a ’73 and I do not think the grille went below the front bumper on hers. I loved that car, it ran very well with the 400 4v auto.

      You’ve got that backwards. ’73 grill went below the bumper, ’74 it stopped at the bumper and the bumper was bigger, new safety stuff.

        Cool, thanks for the refresher. I like these cars.

    Cheap classic for sure… but i cringe at the rust that might lurk on the undercarriage…and the Hantavirus that lurks inside. the body seems ok though, decent drivetrain… wish i had the room, i’d take a gamble on it at that price. GP’s are getting expensive.

    It might sell much quicker at his price if he had taken some pictures of the interior and engine compartment. Some people should just hire someone to make up and post their ads.

    Depending on what the birds that left deposits behind the paint might really be nasty. It has been raining in PA lately (I know as I live in the area) why didn’t they just leave out in the rain before they took the picture?

    JW- yes, it would be nice to see those additional shots….a great help for the prospective buyers who are not local…
    It would definitely increase interest if in decent shape

    I love these. Always been a grand prix fan. I would love to have this one depending on interior and engine bay conditions. I’ve been watching a 76 black and maroon shit with the 455 I want. T=top floor shift and swivels in the one I know of. What part of pa you in Barry? I’m in erie county. Not far from the mistake on the lake, Erie.

    I had one the same year, Built 455 turbo 400. With a couple suspension upgrades and wide 60 series tires. I paid $800. for it as described and ran it for almost 10 years. The car would chirp the tire hitting 2nd if you got on it. The only changes made were a set of headers and new tires. Heavy and a long ass hood but hit the open road and that car was fast, comfortable, and a lot of fun, Especially on 2 lane windy roads. It made a lot of trips from Portland to Reno and never left me sitting there. I had intended to do a restore but the car was hit 3 different times while parked. I ended up with the motor and trans shoe horned into an 86 firebird but that’s another deal.

    I am interested in taking a look at it possibly to purchase call Matt at 3306510341
