The originality of this Pontiac is incredible! The body is nice and straight with original panels. No rust issues. The blue exterior paint is 90% to 95% original and still holds a great luster and shine. Engine bay is un-restored and very presentable. Trunk compartment is immaculate with original mat. Original spare tire and 5th rally wheel appear to have never been used! Interior is stunning! It looks very close to what you would have seen 40 years ago! Seats, door panels, dash etc are not torn, faded, cracked, etc. Trim is nice and clean, not worn or dried out. The padded Landau top is bright and supple, not cracked, faded, or worn. Car is nice and clean underneath as well. Clearly this car was cared for and cherished throughout its life! Of course as with any used car, there are minor flaws such as door dings, small scratches, etc. However, this makes a better appearance than many late model used cars I have seen.
A couple of upgrades have been made:
1. Original AM/FM radio was replaced by a more up-to-date AM/FM/CD Stereo. This unit utilizes the original dash opening for the radio, as well as the original speakers. I don't see any evidence of anything having been cut or butchered for this replacement. If you didn't know this type of stereo wasn't offered back in 1977, you would think it came this way from the factory.
2. A key less entry system was added with remote key fob. This operates the door locks and the power trunk release. It is all integrated to the original power locks and trunk. Again, this was all professionally done. You can either use this or the original keys and power switches to lock and unlock. Again, if you didn't know better, you would think the car came this way. Other than the remote fob in your hand, there is no evidence of the upgrade.
Mechanically, this car is smooth and strong, as you would expect. The Pontiac 400 engine has lots of power and torque. Transmission shifts smoothly and crisply. Driving this car is like sitting in your living room, even at 75MPH! Steering and handling are great! Full sized GM cars from this era were well known for their ride and comfort. This example is no exception! I drove it on a 210 mile trip in December with no issues. It did not smoke, use oil etc, and surprisingly I averaged a bit over 18MPG on regular unleaded gas! I would not be afraid to drive anywhere I needed to go! Maintenance items that have been replaced include: muffler, tail pipe, battery, alternator, radiator, hoses, brakes, master cylinder, tune up,
and carburetor rebuilt. Tires are Michelin Radials with approximately 50% tread. Additionally, A/C system has been flushed and converted to 134A Freon. It is nice and cold.
This is a great classic that won't break the bank! You can start to enjoy it right away and take the whole family in comfort to shows and cruise-ins. Would be a great choice for old car tours as well. Original Survivor cars that have been well kept are the up and coming thing in the collector car hobby. Remember, anyone can throw gobs of money at a derelict and restore it, but THEY ARE ONLY ORIGINAL ONCE! If someone GAVE you a project car, you could not even begin to restore it for what you can buy this nice original for! I have good title. Don't miss this one!
About Me: I have been collecting and fooling with old cars for over 40 years! I favor original un-restored well kept survivor cars from the late 1950's to late 1970's. As new acquisitions are made to the collection, I have to sometimes make room in the garage by selling another. Car is located near Florence, SC about 15 minutes from the junction of Interstates 20 and 95. This is about half way between Columbia and Myrtle Beach in the east-west direction.
