OVERVIEW

1971 Pontiac Grand Prix

  • DESCRIPTIONMy father, Carter Winnett of Warrior, Alabama purchased this 1971 Grand Prix Model J from Smith Waldrop Pontiac GMC in Cullman, Alabama on June 22, 1971. It has a 400 engine and a turbo transmission. It is beige in color with a dark brown vinyl top and saddle tan interior. The car is original, except for a re-paint and new vinyl top. The interior is totally original down to the factory rubber mats and is in excellent condition. The carpet in the trunk and the spare tire are original also. The spare tire has never been on the ground and in fact it has a dent in it from the jack laying on it for so many years. This car has been garaged its entire life and has never been driven in the rain or on dirt roads. The ACTUAL mileage on the car is 8533. That is EIGHT THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED THIRTY THREE MILES. My father lost his leg in a mining accident shortly after he purchased this car. He was unable to climb in and out of the car and therefore the Grand Prix was left in his garage until his death in 1993. I purchased the car from his estate and have shown the car in numerous antique car shows in central Alabama, winning many awards for best in show, best in class, and original vehicle. This car was featured on the front page of Prix Views in the March/April 2003 edition. I belong to the Walker County Cruisers in Jasper, Alabama, The Pontiac Oakland Club International as well as the Grand Prix Chapter. This car is a rare classic that will make any collector proud.
