firstly, this car is LOCATED AT OUR SECOND HOME IN GREENVILLE SOUTH CAROLINA, ZIP 29609.

we tried to change the location so there would be no confusion but ebay will not let us change it for one auction, it would apply to all our auctions. we have more auctions of antique car parts going on, please check them out. in any event the car is in greenville SC and if you want a transport quote just ask as we know a guy who criss crosses the states constantly and has really good prices, we have used him several times.

please have the money on hand to pay for this car within three days of the auctions end. cash or a bank wire transfer are the only two forms of payment accepted. if you cannot comply with these very simple terms then simply do not bid. we will be glad to store the car for 30 days while you sort transportation out, providing car is paid for.

1965 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX SPORT COUPE. the floor pans and braces on this car are as solid as the day they were made! the car runs well and has new valve cover gaskets fitted and a tune up not too long ago. the transmission is rebuilt and a shift kit was put in it. the drive shaft was balanced cleaned and then painted. the factory air is all there but the drive belt is disconnected, the system will no doubt need to be checked and gone through. 

the fender skirts are solid as a rock. the quarter panels are VERY straight and VERY solid, check the pix with the fender skirts off. the inner and outer rockers are solid as a rock also and the doors and trunk open and close perfectly, the hood hinge on the drivers side needs a little tweeking but it works ok. all the glass is excellent and all the windows go up and down fine, a little stiff in places but fine. the headliner is still in the car but starting to come apart. its original and i`m sure it could be saved. the dome light works when you open the doors. the area around the back glass is VERY solid. you can see some pitting in the two close up pictures but there is NO rust out. the inside lip of the trunk lid has some rust out but not much. the hood lip is very good though the hood nose has had a little bump in the distant past. the car has been stored inside since 1981! the paint is faded as you can see, the front bumper needs some straightening. 

what needs attention: the car needs an exhaust, a new battery, a/c service/repair, brake rebuild, bottoms of front fenders repaired along with a little repair in the area where the fender skirt clips in. the trunk floor has been treated with an anti rust paint and for the most part the trunk floor is decent apart from some localized rust through, but its not much! there is a split seam on the drivers seat, see close up picture. the car has the REAR SPEAKER SELECTOR.

the interior is ALL original, thats right the carpets, seats, door panels, headliner and everything else is ALL ORIGINAL. the carpets need to be replaced along with the carpet on the bottoms of both doors. the dash pad has had it along with the parcel shelf cover. it needs a new ignition switch and trunk lock. the two rear caps are missing the spinners, see pix. the original jack and spare are with the car.

this is a really solid car and an excellent car to restore. clear title in hand and FULL PAYMENT IN THREE DAYS FROM AUCTIONS END. the ONLY methods of payment i will accept are CASH IN PERSON AT PICK UP, OR BANK WIRE TRANSFER.

ANY QUESTIONS CALL 864 616 6860 BEFORE 10 PM EASTERN TIME. this GP is a REALLY good car that has the makings of a GREAT car, we just hope that someone doe`s it real justice. thanks and good luck to y`all.

STUDY: Ford owns brand loyalty in 2009; Scorned Saturn, Pontiac buyers will look outside of GM

Fri, 16 Oct 2009 10:55:00 EST

Ford buyers appear to love their cars more than customers of any other automotive brand, returning back to the American automaker when it comes time to purchase their next vehicle. According to a study by Experian Automotive, six of the top 10 vehicles for customer brand loyalty wear badges from the Blue Oval. That includes the Ford Fusion (62.4 percent), Ford Edge (57.9 percent), Ford Five Hundred/Taurus (56 percent), Ford Freestyle (51.9 percent), Ford Escape (49.4 percent) and the Ford Focus (47.57 percent).
Other vehicles making up the top 10 include the Toyota Prius (52 percent), Chevy Impala (51.7 percent), Toyota Camry (47.8 percent) and Toyota Corolla (47.56 percent). This brings up an interesting question: With the closing of automotive brands like Saturn and Pontiac, where are those buyers to turn for their next automotive purchase?
Apparently, not back to General Motors. According to Experian, Pontiac owners are most likely to look to the Ford lineup for their next car or truck and Saturn shoppers will switch to Toyota or Honda - not particularly surprising given that Saturn was meant to compete with import brands. Experian predicts that GM's overall market share will fall from 20 percent to about 17.5 percent, with most of the slack being picked up by Ford, Honda and Toyota.

2008-2009 Pontiac G8 recalled over airbag concern

Mon, 07 Nov 2011 13:30:00 EST

General Motors is recalling around 38,000 Pontiac G8 sedans from its 2008 and 2009 model years. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that the cars may have a passenger-side airbag flaw that might prevent proper deployment in certain scenarios.
According to NHTSA, the airbag might not adequately protect a fifth percentile woman - that is, a woman around four-foot, 11-inches weighing 108 pounds. The New York Times indicates that the anomaly was found during a crash test conducted by GM's Australian branch, Holden, which was testing the G8's twin (read: Commodore) for head injuries. According to that report, the test in question is specifically tailored to simulate injuries to females, so the results do not apply to men or children.
The issue has been blamed on a seat position sensor that governs airbag deployment rates. NHTSA indicates that when the front passenger seat is moved all the way forward, the faulty sensor may inappropriately trigger a 30-millisecond delay between airbag stages, potentially leading to greater injuries.

Aficionauto sits down with The Hoff and KITT

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 12:45:00 EST

The latest video from The Aficionauto is the perfect palate cleanser for Knight Rider fans after finding out that Justin Bieber is the voice of KITT in an upcoming film. Host Christopher Rutkowski says that the Knight Industries Two Thousand is one of the most requested vehicles to appear on the series and for good reason - Michael Knight's Pontiac Trans-Am is among the most famous cars to ever appear on television.
While the video isn't able to showcase one of the original KITTs from the series, it does get star David Hasselhoff to drive his personal replica and talk about the lasting legacy of the show. The highlight here might be seeing The Hoff back behind the wheel in the open desert basically recreating Knight Rider's opening sequence.
With all of its flashing lights and gizmos, you can probably make the argument that KITT is pretty cheesy, and the show itself was never exactly a pillar of high-quality drama on television. Despite that, the series still provides a ton of good-natured fun, and The Hoff's continued enthusiasm for it is pretty infectious. Check out The Aficionauto video to take another ride with Knight Rider.
