8-Lugs: ’63 Pontiac Grand Prix
We have always liked the coke-bottle shaped Grand Prix. After years of excessive chrome adorning the flanks of GM cars the smooth yet curvaceous GP with the concave rear window hit the sweet spot in the growing personal car segment. The American buyer agreed. Sales of GPs doubled. You don’t see too many people investing the capital it takes to restore one of these so one has to be patient and look for a survivor. Today’s GP is the car we’ve been waiting for. It is a California car shipped recently to Florida therefore it has escaped the ravages of salt. It has original exterior paint that the seller says looks pretty darn good. Better than a 5 footer they say. The interior too is original with working gauges and cold Air Conditioning. It is equipped with those beautiful 8-lug wheels that Pontiac offered on its special cars. No gargae queen with over 100,000 miles making its sttus as a survivor even more special. They are asking $22,500 for this drive it now classic. Click here for the listing.
