Pontiac built two Grand Prix models in 1978, he Sports Model (SJ) and the Luxury Model (LJ). This is the luxury model with luxury package. This car has the factory original 305 CID (5.0L) V8 engine with 2 bbl carburetor and an automatic transmission. It has the original two-tone silver gray paint with Landau Cordova padded top and working T-Tops. The car has factory original 15x7 Western Wheels with center caps. (one cap is missing the Pontiac insignia). All four tires have lots of tread left on them. The body is straight and clean except for minor previous work done to the doors. The paint is in good driver condition. The paint on the sides is nice condition but the hood and trunk have the oxidation which is customary when the California sun hits metallic silver paint. The car had previous poorly done minor body/patch work on the doors. And, s you can see there is gray and black paint overspray on those areas as well as in parts of the chrome door trim. I know the black paint will come off the chrome trim and I understand the gray overspray can be removed with wet sanding but not sure. The body works should be redone and some of the trim should be replaced if the new owner would like perfectcar. The right and left rear quarter corners near the bumpershave grayover spray. The right side is shownon the pictures. The car has tinted windows all the way around including the back window and T-Tops. The right passenger window also has black paint over spray on the top right corner but it is hard to see from the outside because of the tinted windows. The car has the original tire jack.

This a non-smoker car. The interior is in nice overall condition for its age. The car has real front and rear leather seats. The front sport bucket seats have cracking and can use dying. The rear seats are in very nice condition. The padded vinyl door panels and dash are in nice condition with no cracks. The automatic center console and shifter are in nice condition. The car has an instrument panel has rally gauges, orking tilt steering wheel, ower windows, ower door locks, ower driver side seat controls and Clarion CDM-9823 AM/FM/CD Stereo with removable faceplate. The car has working air conditioning and blows cold. However, he bi-level function does not work properly and air only comes out of the top dash vent and lower driver floor-side console vent. The head lights, ail lights, rake lights, ack up lights,turn signals, orn, ower windows, river power seat controls, tereo, tc work great.
