32K ACTUAL MILES, FACTORY PAINT, LOADED, AMAZING SURVIVOR, POWER TOP, SERVICED
Pontiac fans, if you're looking for that last piece of your collection, may we humbly suggest this 1975 Grand Ville convertible? With just 32,590 original miles, it has to be one of the lowest-mileage Grand Villes in the world, and with 1975 being the last year for the full-sized Pontiac ragtop, what could be more collectable?
This big convertible is actually quite stylish in its code 55 Sandstone paint, which, while typical 1970s, has aged well and still has a subtle, upscale look. The nicely detailed '75 facelift gave the big Pontiac more details, but a cleaner profile, and even with fender skirts, it manages to look both elegant and sporty. Amazingly, this one still wears its original paint, aside from a recent touch-up to the rear driver fender due to an unfortunate scrape in the current owners garage. The stainless trim has held up quite well, and both bumpers have a bright chrome finish typical of the era. Subtle pinstripes emphasize the dramatic fender lines without beating you over the head with their obviousness, and the full-width taillights are in excellent condition. Even things like the rubber insert around the license plate is not cracked, and these are always the first pieces to go.
The handsome brown interior is the ideal complement to the Sandstone paint, with a diamond-tufted pattern in the seatbacks that recall performance Pontiacs of the '60s. The shag carpet, the door panels, and even the dash pad are all virtually new thanks to a lifetime of proper care and storage away from the sun's harmful rays. The wrap-around gauge cluster puts all the controls within easy reach, and the instruments are amazingly well preserved. Options include A/C, power windows and seats, cruise control, and an AM/FM stereo radio that actually sounds decent. A power folding top with glass rear window was standard equipment, and when folded, it hides under a matching brown vinyl boot.
The 455 cubic inch V8 was optional in the Grand Ville, and added 15 horsepower over the base 400, for a total of 200. While today that may not seem like a lot, remember that the goal was effortless performance, and in that regard the Grand Ville excels. The engine has a nice V8 hum that's subtle, and the wave of low-end torque moves the car without apparent effort, which was entirely the point. The brightly detailed engine bay is an incredible example of preservation, with all the original finishes showcased with spotless presentation; there's just no question this car has been loved. Underneath, it's just as clean, with original components including the catalytic converter. Sporty Pontiac Rally II wheels wear fat 235/75/15 whitewall radials that might be only this car's second set of shoes.
With only 4519 Grand Villes built in '75, it might be the most collectable of all mid-70s Pontiacs. Call today!
