RARE LIMITED PROD, 305 CID, AUTO, POSI, NASCAR APPROVED, 1 YEAR BUILT.
One of the last cars granted homologation entry for NASCAR's premier racing series was the 1986 Pontiac Grand Prix 2+2 Aerocoupe like you see here. Approximately 1225 units were produced for one year only and all were considered a "no option car", but actually came fully loaded. This 1986 Grand Prix 2+2 is a rare opportunity to own a collectible car that is part of NASCAR history.
All 2+2 models came finished in two-tone silver over dark gray paint job that is highlighted with red pinstriping. The headlights are clear and the rear tail lamps are vivid and crack free with 'GP' logos placed in the middle. Also specific to these models is the aerodynamic front nose, fiberglass trunk with an integrated spoiler, and bubble rear glass that resembles the same profile of Chevrolet's NASCAR homologation entry in '86 and '87, the Monte Carlo Aerocoupe. Sitting on 15'' Rally II wheels, it's a very unique shape and features familiar styling of the cars we knew as 'muscle cars' in the late 80's.
Being that the Grand Prix was a sport luxury automobile, the cabins on these cars rivaled high end luxury cars of the time. The plush seats are covered in comfortable gray cloth upholstery, and given the '2+2' name, you would think there was only room in the rear for two, but there is a bench seat with seatbelts for three that is covered in the same cloth. The center console features an armrest that encloses a large storage compartment, the shifter for the automatic transmission, and an ash tray. Up front, the dash is clean and straight with a classy wood appliqué surrounding vents for the air conditioning unit and the gauges that monitor speed, RPM, fuel levels, oil pressure, water temperature, and voltage. Below the switches for heat and A/C is an aftermarket AM/FM/CD head unit. Other amenities include cruise control, power windows, power locks and a tilt wheel.
Motivation for this coupe comes from a Chevrolet 305 cubic inch V8 that is mated to a automatic transmission. That stout transmission transfers the power to the positraction 10 bolt rear end. The engine bay maintains most of the stock components, but there is an aftermarket air cleaner that has been painted red, and so have the fender braces to match. Put this car on a lift and much of it will look very familiar. There isn't any fancy hardware, but it's interesting to think that if you were to take a NASCAR Cup car from the same era and put it on a lift, it would look fairly similar. Today that wouldn't be the case. To assist in driving this coupe in day to day conditions is power steering, power brakes with discs up front, and 235/60/R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/A rubber putting it all to the road.
With very few of these '86 Grand Prix 2+2 Aerocoupes being produced, or surviving, a chance to actually own one doesn't come around very often. When you factor in the limited, one year only production then it certainly has collector status. Throw in the fact that it was built for NASCAR regulations, then that status increases. Call today!
