“This is My Father's 1972 Pontiac Grandville 4-door hard top.
It is all original. My Father bought the car new in the fall of 1971. We have all of the original papers right down to the receipt for the first tank of gas! We also have all of the licence plates that went on the car through the years. We are just now having to start to put some money into the car replacing things such as: air shocks, springs, and the power seat motor.

“This 1972 Grand Safari has 65,000 original miles and the 455. I bought it from the original owner, and added the duals, rallies, sport wheel, 8 track, detailed the engine, added a correct 72 4brl carb and intake, and fixed the a/c. Everything else is original. It's a fun car to drive!”

“I am the second owner of this local SE Wisconsin 60,000 mile 1972 Catalina. This car is a daily driver. Mostly original, I added dual exhausts, rally II's and radials, a "console" adapted from a '57 Pontiac under-dash speaker housing, air shocks for handling and hauling, minor convenience/accessory items, plus the typical replacement of brake and cooling system items.
Engine is the "YX" 200 hp 2bbl 400 cid version; a Quadrajet setup awaits. Body is #2-3, paint #4, interior #1-2.
The car draws attention and conversation; it carries a bunch, holds its own in today's mega-monster-suv road warrior environment, but it has an expensive drinking habit. And, yes, we refer to it as ‘The Whale’.”

“This is my 72 Catalina I just picked up for $700. It has a 400 4Bbl. It is all original even the gas in the tank was original. I have put new tires, dual exhaust, an Edelbrock performer manifold and a 750 double pumper. She will get up and go. I am the second owner. It has 110K on it. It is the perfect “Las Vegas”car.” Dave S. Las Vegas, NV

Everyone should have one!!”
