Old-school doesn't come much newer than this.
We often come across classic cars as we trawl the internet for interesting stories to bring you, but few of them are as well kept as the one you see below. Some classics are more desirable than others, some get converted to EVs, and some, like this 1977 Pontiac Grand Prix, live their lives in a garage and are never seen again until they are ready to be sold. The Grand Prix in question is almost immaculate, boasting an odometer reading of just 177 miles. The only slightly negative aspects of this car are that the rear differential is leaking fluid and there's mild surface rust evident on parts of the underbody.
The Pontiac Grand Prix was closely related to the Chevrolet Impala, but today's boring runabout sedan is nothing like the luxurious, V8-powered coupe you see in these photographs. It was delivered new to Peter Irish Pontiac Cadillac in Pennsylvania before it was sold. The solitary owner in its history before the current one clearly decided to store it rather than use it, but considering how nicely it's specced, we can't blame that individual too much.
This is like a time capsule from an age gone by, featuring Cream Gold paint over Firethorn Red upholstery. The 5.0-liter V8 is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission, while other features include power steering, power front disc brakes, a red landau top with removable glass panels, and more.
Inside, you'll find that it is equipped with air conditioning, bucket seats in front, and a Delco 8-track player. It still has the original window sticker, T-top storage bags, and various other bits of memorabilia. Brand new, this would have been a stunning luxury car, even if its 135-horsepower rating is a little low by today's standard. In its day, it had an MSRP of $7,473.85, but if you want to own it, you'll have to outbid the current best offer (at time of writing) of $19,500. The auction on Bring a Trailer ends on January 4. Maybe the best way to usher in the new year is with something from 40 years ago.
