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 seams.
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.
