Get a load of this sad sack SOB of a Grand National? If there is a more worn out, beat up, tired ass looking GN for sale in the continental USA we’ve never seen it. This car appears to have been thrashed and beaten to within an inch of its life and then left sitting next to a salt marsh for 20 years. Hell, this car is so abused the hood is all bent from someone slamming it shut on a bunch of tools that were in the engine bay. Who does that?!
The paint is elevendy shades of sad and there are no interior photos to give us an idea of how long and how badly the T-tops have been leaking and feeding a colony of flesh eating bacteria inside. The good news is that the seller is ONLY looking to $15,000. Go ahead and hit eBay and any other sales service you can find to see what’s possible to purchase for about the same money in the GN/T-Type world for this kind of money. You’ll see a lot better looking junk than this heap. We think that some of the missing paint chips have ended up in the seller’s coffee or scrambled eggs or something.
We know that it is a Grand National and not a Ferrari 250 GTO, but seeing one this hammered and neglected is pretty rare. A while back we showed you a GNX that had met a similar fate but even that car may have been a little bit less haggard than this one. Oh, and regarding our joke about being parked by a salt marsh, this car is located in Kansas City, Missouri so unless it was relocated to that area, that’s not what happened. Maybe just poor GM paint quality combined with baking in the sun and freezing in the winter has made most of the factory clear coat and large portions of the paint leave the building. Your guess is as good as ours.
So a $15,000 price tag, a car that needs a complete and utter overhaul, and an interior that probably smells like a pair of gym socks that have been marinating in the crotch sweat of an NFL team…seems like a hell of a deal to us!
