1979 Pontiac Grand Prix LJ1979 Pontiac Grand Prix LJ Clean, all original, unmolested, V8, console, bucket seats, tilt, cruise, cold A/C, drive anywhere
Hard to find them this clean (and unmolested) anymore. This is a 3(?) owner, 1979 Pontiac Grand Prix LJ with two-tone green factory paint, landau top, and original cloth (velour) interior. It has it's original Pontiac 301 V8 with 2-bbl Rochester Dualjet and automatic transmission with factory floor/console shifter. Cold A/C and hot heat, cruise control, tilt wheel, and factory AM/FM radio. Everything works with the possible exception of the rear window defroster (which I have not tried).

This was my wife's semi-daily driver and as such has been maintained to be safe and reliable. The following has been repaired / replaced within the last 2 years (much of the work done as preventative maintenance):
- New front springs, shocks, brake pads, tie rods, and upper ball joints
- Front end alignment
- New rear brakes (wheel cylinders, shoes, etc.)
- New (rebuilt) Rochester Dualjet carb from National Carburetor (original carburetor also included if you want it)
- New fuel pump and soft lines
- New belts & hoses
- New radiator
- New heater core
- New vacuum lines
- New 15" BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires
- Professionally refinished 15" Pontiac OEM snowflake wheels
- New spark plugs and plug wires
The car was apparently undercoated / rust-proofed (Ziebart?) when new. As such the body is in great shape and also has no dents / dings to speak of. There are (2) rust spots that I could find; one the size of a nickel on the lower right of the trunk lid and one slightly larger behind the rear passenger wheel (see pictures of both). These are "bubbles" and have not come through the paint completely but will need to be addressed at some point. I can find no other body rust anywhere. The rear bumper fillers were replace and painted by the previous owner and the front bumper fillers appear to be original and in good shape. The landau vinyl top is good shape with no rips, tears, or dry rot. It does have some stains but cleans up nicely.
This is probably one of the cleanest, most original Grand Prix's of this era that you will find. That said, it is almost a 40 year-old car. It has a some imperfections as expected and may need other maintenance that I'm not aware of.
This car is reliable, comfortable and can be driven anywhere. The A/C is cold and the heat is hot. We've made a couple of 200+ mile trips in it and it performed flawlessly. One of the trips was to the regional POCI show where it won an award. It rides and drives great and is a bold fashion statement. People comment on it every time we go somewhere in it.
