NASCAR Homologation… that was all the rage in the late 60's with the Daytona Superbird and the Ford Talledaga and once again in the late 80's with the Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe and this 1986 Pontiac Grand Prix 2+2 Aerocoupe. With the slick Ford Thunderbirds winning a majority of the races, Richard Petty spearheaded an effort with other drivers joining in demanding that GM design a car with a lower drag co-efficient so they could compete with Ford's Thunderbird. In order to satisfy the homologation rules for the NASCAR series, GM built 1,118 Pontiac 2+2 Aerocoupes which were sold to the public; this enabled them to meet the production numbers NASCAR officials required for showroom stock model to be incorporated into the race cars.

Manufacturers wanted to spend as little as possible on this, which is why production numbers of these types of vehicles are so low. There were only 1,118 Grand Prix 2+2 Aerocoupes manufactured by Pontiac with a one year only run in 1986 and it went on to be a very successful design in NASCAR by reducing drag and increasing top speeds and helped put GM cars back in victory lane.

This is a one-owner example that was purchased new by the original owner in '86 from Waldecker Pontiac in Brighton, MI and it has only 30,190 original miles! It is in original condition having never received any restoration whatsoever. The only blemish on the body is a very small dent on the driver's side wheel well. The trunk lid, nose, spoiler, and surrounding hatch is made of fiberglass for lightweight. The paint is not perfect but it is original and GM paint in the 80's was definitely not known for its quality. The interior is in very good condition and showing very minimal wear. Aside from its purpose for NASCAR racing, it is a very well running and driving car and is equipped with power steering, power brakes, power windows, power locks, front discs, A/C, and heat. It comes with both original keys, the original books and manuals, and the original sales documentation.
