1977 Pontiac Grand Prix LJ

Pontiac's upscale, sporty car that offers full-size comfort along with sporty looks, spirited performance and all the whistles and bells, and the purveyor of the “wide track”. We have on consignment, a 1977 version of this large piece of Detroit iron in LJ trim which is presenting in very good condition. A great end of the Colonnade era with traditional Pontiac beak, dual headlights and sweeping sexy lines have this in my opinion as one of the best-looking models of the Grand Prix offering. Not sold on this yet? How about full documentation including the PHS report, window sticker and sales invoice all wrapped up in a numbers matching, special paint code package. Let's sweeten the pot with only 56,502 verified actual miles, now we're talkin' Pontiac history in a serious way.

A complete reworking of the front header and bumper highlights this 1977 Grand Prix, which was the final year for the 1973-vintage body shell that was set to be replaced by a downsized GP for 1978. Up front the parking lamps are positioned between the quad headlamps and the previous year's waterfall grille was replaced by a narrower one that extends into the lower portion of the bumper. These grilles flank a traditional Pontiac beak and down low a clean and shiny chrome bumper splits the twin grilles just perfectly. A deep coating of the special order paint, Saffron Metallic, orange for the layperson, lusciously covers this steel slab sided car which appears to have been dipped in the hue, (without the peel and texture!). Body matching mirrors are on both sides, and a padded Ivory Landau vinyl top is covering the roof very neatly. Arrow-like pointed body lines are abundant on the top surfaces, like the sharply pointed hood and veed rear glass, to the trunk deck which follows suit and takes cues from the front with another V pointed rear panel, with underlying bumper. The taillights are neatly embedded above the rear bumper and the styling is like nothing to ever be duplicated by an auto manufacturer. A shiny rocker trim runs from well to well, and the wells take from it and are surrounded by thin chromed trim. Just above, mimicking the rocker trim is a ivory vinyl and a chrome rub strip which fills the undulating body sides nicely. Snowflake style alloy wheels are all around and are wrapped in like new thin white radials.

Looking into a very clean and well-preserved interior wrapped in clean and mean black with plenty of power options. The driver's door panel is near showroom and contains the window toggles, lock toggles, and a LH outside mirror joystick adjuster. Seating also in black and has a mixture of tuck and broadcloth inserts and smooth broadcloth bolsters complete with pristine piping but slight fading of the bolsters on the driver's seat. The front is a power for the driver's 30/70 bucket arrangement and the rear is a matching pattern bench. The dash is all original and very clean with a bevy of gauges and warning lamps added in at the factory all within a clean applique backdrop. Sitting below the dash in more applique is the factory AM/FM stereo and above are the round vents and the "Radial Tuned Suspension" plaque. Clean deep pile black carpet floods the floors and a tight puffy headliner hangs above. Of note are factory options added in that match the window sticker, those being cruise control, a remote decklid release, and soft ray tinted glass.

Lifting the long steel hood reveals the numbers matching 400ci V8 sitting within a very clean engine bay. This is topped with a Rochester Quadrajet 4-barrel carburetor, and backed by the numbers matching TH400 3-speed automatic transmission. A 10-bolt rear axle with 2.56 gears is on the way back. Hints of Pontiac blue shine through in the bay under all the soft and supple hoses, wiring and ducting.

Some light surface rust is noted throughout but certainly nothing to be concerned about. Power disc brakes are on the front of the car and power drums for the rear and for the Radial Tuned Suspension we seen a independent coil springs up front and a 4 link and coil springs in the rear. A stock style single exhaust system is on for the exhale and is looking just fine.

This car started right up effortlessly and was ready to roll to our test track. It handled beautifully with the radial tuned suspension and had nice smooth acceleration and automatic shifting. Overall it provided a comfortable ride with only the clock not being operational.

It's not often we get fully documented special order cars through the doors of our Hallowed Halls but today we offer you this Pontiac, the last of its breed, with beautiful pointed styling, a numbers matching drivetrain, and all the documentation one could ask for. This one will not last long here at Classic Auto Mall.
