This restored to original 1973 Pontiac Grand Am has won multiple national
awards and been featured on the cover of High Performance Pontiac magazine.
It is probably the best 1973 Grand Am in the world and is one of the most
unique and interesting Pontiacs in the classic car hobby.
Recently frame-off restored, this solid and surprisingly complete first
year Grand Am was originally delivered to Friend Pontiac in Beaver
Pennsylvania. Its European inspired design translates well in correct GM
code 74 Florentine Red on top of bodywork that displays no signs of major
repairs and was undoubtedly very straight before the restoration started.
If you check out the photos closely, you can sight down the cars curvy
flanks and see that there are no ripples in the sheetmetal and panel
alignment is spot-on thanks to factory correct gaps and the 100% original
Pop this cars beaked hood and you'll find an original 400 cubic inch L65
engine that hasn't been torn apart since it left GM's Pontiac Michigan
plant almost 40 years ago. It's an extremely strong running engine which
idles so smoothly and drives so well that the previous owner decided to err
on the side of authenticity and leave it untouched. At the top of the
engine, a satin black air cleaner displays a correct "400-2" decal and
sends air into a correct 2 barrel carburetor that is fed through a correct
AC fuel filter. Below the carburetor, Pontiac's tried and true 400 wears
correct blue paint from its valve covers to its oil pan and displays
correct reproduction decals and chalk marks. On the right side of the
engine, the cars custom Harrison air conditioning system has been restored
to its proper state and includes a correct Frigidaire compressor, and on
the left side of the engine you'll find a fresh brake Booster and master cylinder.
Behind the big 6.5 liter engine you'll find an original turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed transmission that
sends power to a Safe-T-Track Posi-traction rear end with comfortable 3.23
gears. Holding that smooth drivetrain off the ground is an optional special
suspension with the firm ride option which includes computer selected
springs, firmer shocks, taller front spindles that were borrowed from the
F-body, and 1.125 front and .94 rear stabilizer bars. On top of that
serious handling hardware is a variable ratio power steering system that
has good feel and GM's standard power front disc and rear drum braking
system. The cars passive stock Exhaust
has been upgraded to a welded aluminized true dual system that features an
H-pipe and two chamber Flowmaster mufflers. The suspension, steering and
brakes have all been properly maintained and the chassis looks
exceptionally clean given the age and authenticity of the car. At the
corners, great looking 15 inch Pontiac snow flake wheels wear 225/70
Goodyear Eagle GT IIs. However, if you're more of a traditionalist, the
cars original finned hubcaps are included with the sale.
Inside this Pontiac, high style is the name of the game. The original
Oxblood vinyl interior is 100% intact and in spectacular condition with
rich looking Morrokide buckets that include both reclining backs and twist
adjustable lumbar support. The beautifully detailed dashboard houses a
great looking African Crossfire Mahogany gauge pod that contrasts well
against the cars highly detailed gauges and chrome trimmed air vents. At
the center of the dash, controls for the cars custom HVAC system and an
original Stereo Eight 8-track player sit above a pristine console that is
slightly canted toward the driver. At the sides of the seats, the nicely
preserved padded door panels include chrome handles for the doors and
windows next to upscale angled pull straps. The steering wheel is the cars
original optional sport wheel that features bight satin aluminum spokes and
a factory fresh Pontiac branded horn button. The original nylon blend loop
carpet looks great under heavy duty rubber floor mats, and the burgundy
headliner is exceptionally nice with no glaring issues or signs of age.
With the luxury and flair of a European sports sedan and the style and
grunt of a fire breathing American muscle car, this is one old Pontiac that
has personality by the buckets.

1974 PONTIAC GTO - A SHADOW OF IT'S FORMER SELF
So this is what the GTO had become by '74. Not even close to those
glorious and super high powered GTO's of days gone by. But very simliar to
the compact Pontiac Ventura and the Chevy Nova, sharing the wheelbase,
frame, and body of both. Only 7,058 of the GTO were made this year making
this a very rare car indeed. The "upgrade" to a GTO cost $195.00 but you
got a hood scoop, distinctive grille AND a 350 cid V8 engine that cranked
out 165 horses. So, maybe it's a miniature muscle car. You can still see
Pontiac quality in this GTO from front to back. The decals are still
perfect. The interior flawless as well as the paint. You can eat off the
engine block. What you have here is a perfect original survivor that has a
character of cuteness about it. Would I like to own this? You bet. It's
still a winner. Thanks very much for viewing this rare and perfect 1974

1974 Pontiac LeMans GT red
I can't recall seeing a LeMans GT..but here one is..and it's for sale! I
really do like this style Pontiac....and this looks like it would perform
very well on the street! GTO was now almost history...the last year for
it, so this car helped bear the performance mantle for the division.
Performance plus luxury...a nice combination!
