Here’s a beautiful, California all it’s life, Black License Plate ’63 Grand Prix, with factory installed 8 lugs, air conditioning, and power windows! Built at the South Gate, CA factory, sold new at Mike Salta Pontiac in Sacramento, and loaded up with factory options!
Excellent original interior, with factory buckets and console and brand new carpeting.
Here we see the deluxe steering wheel, option N-30. It’s translucent, with only minor age showing. Look how nice the dashboard is, too! Peeking at us to the lower right is the factory vacuum gauge – Pontiac installed vacuum guages here, not tachometers, although they were often switched out for a tach by owners.
Here’s the trunk, with factory 8 lug spare, jack, and lugwrench. The trunk floor had some surface rust, but was stripped, coated, and sealed with the original Pontiac Spatter paint. There is one very small patch, about 1 inch by 2 inches. Also note the factory cardboards still intact.
The Jack and lug wrench are stowed at the back of the trunk. the jack base and bumper adapter are mounted to the spare, they tighten up against the 8-lug only retainer plate on the spare. 8 lugs were sort of a lot of work, but they look so cool they’re worth it.
Big Pontiac V-8, I couldn’t get the casting numbers, but it is probably a late 1960’s 400 or 428. The heads are “62” castings, with a 1968 casting date. Of course, originally it had a 389. This one runs great, lots of power and fun to drive.
