Just one of the details I appreciate is the engine paint finish.
You see so many engines with a heavy thick paint job and this car has a light spray like the factory would have done, nice.

Thanks for sharing your friends car.
I agree. And the black finishes on the core support, inner fender wells, firewall and under hood are very close to factory as well.

Wow! Stunning! Gorgeous!

I've always been a huge fan of GPs and this one is awesome!

----There was only a bit of surface rust on my SJ's radiator support down low on one side. That whole peice is dip painted. I have the original runs to prove it, so I chose to just do the affected areas and leave the rest alone. There were a few minor spots on top of the support right above the battery probably from battery acid but I felt strongly that I shouldn't redo the upper side of the support. The runs are still there!....Bill S

Yep, that's how they did them. That paint was very durable and shines up easily if in good condition. Great that you could preserve it.

Absolutely beautiful car! Brings back memories, I had a 69 GP SJ 428-370 HP (turbo 400 auto), back nearly 50 years ago. Interesting though, mine had a twin snorkel air cleaner.

The dual snorkel air cleaner was a $9.48 option on all 1969 Grand Prix's.

A lot of guys added dual snorkel air cleaners from GTO's back in the day. I did it too.
