Grand Size: 1977 Pontiac Grand Prix SJ – SOLD!
March 1st Update – While updating our database we confirmed the private seller of this low mileage Grand Prix deleted their listing, so we’re calling this personal luxury coupe “Sold!”
Listed in early January 2020 on Craigslist in Sharon, Massachusetts is this 56K original mile, blue over blue vinyl, 1977 Pontiac Grand Prix the private seller asked $10,995 for, which relying on the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirm he has it priced about halfway between the #2 “Excellent” appraisal of $13,700 and the #3 “Good” estimate of $6,900.
For model year 1973, Pontiac launched the third generation of its popular personal luxury coupe, the Grand Prix, on the new A-Body “Colonade” hardtop platform shared with the Chevrolet Monte Carlo, Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, and Buick Regal. With more emissions and safety features being added throughout the mid-70s, Pontiac increasingly focused on the luxury aspect of these cars as power output declined with each succeeding year. About the only styling cue differentiating second generation Grand Prixs from their A-Body siblings was the cockpit style wrap-around dashboard continued from the second generation car. The 1977 example presented here is the last of the “big” Grand Prixs before GM downsized the A-Body line for 1978. The long hood, short deck design initiated on the second generation Grand Prix looks even better on these later models.
While this is a low mileage survivor with a great folder of receipts to tell the car’s story, with an aftermarket radio and air cleaner among other things, this Grand Prix is not ready to be judged at an Antique Automobile Club of America (“AACA”) event. If you’re looking for a great example from the last year of the full-size Grand Prix to coddle you in sporty personal luxury on your way to each local car meet, this might be a great example. Good luck with purchase!
