1986 Pontiac Grand Prix 2+2

In the 1980s, GM was growing tired of conceding high-speed oval races to the aerodynamically superior Ford Thunderbird. In response, both Chevrolet and Pontiac went back to the drawing board, independently, to produce a G-body coupe with improved high-speed stability. On the Pontiac side of the business, the result was the 1986 Grand Prix 2+2.

Only 1,225 of the Grand Prix 2+2 were built, and production was limited to the 1986 model year only.  This body style was run in NASCAR Winston Cup competition in that year.  The car’s big dividends came in high-speed stability. The massive rear glass used on the 2+2, which sloped down to meet the oversize spoiler on the trunk lid, changed the car’s aerodynamic profile dramatically, eliminating rear lift at high speeds. The sloping nose and front fenders also changed the way the 2+2 sliced through the air and helped make GM more competitive on NASCAR’s high speed ovals.  

The car presented at auction features a 305  V8 engine and automatic transmission.  The car has been very well cared for and has been subjected to all scheduled maintenance, it has always been garaged and many records are available.  The interior shows very well and the car looks & drives great.  The Odometer displays 139K miles, but you'll only know by reading the dash as the car is in very good original condition.
