1972 Pontiac Grand Prix SJ 455 Cubic Inch from North America
It is an outstanding driver and turns heads!
The Grand Prix SJ has been in storage for 22 years, and was just removed and driven in the past six weeks.
The gas tank has a lot of scale and the fuel sending sock becomes clogged with scale when the fuel drops below the 1/2 full mark on the gauge, causing the car to hesitate and nearly stall. The tank and sending unit will need to be boiled and relined or completely replaced.
Is anyone reading this survey aware of any new old stock (NOS) tanks? I would really like to maintain the originality of this car, since it is completely stock and I will be showing it as a survivor car at shows.
Secondly, is anyone aware of where I might find an original style (spatter paint look) trunk mat? If not, does anyone know the exact of material used? If purchased by the sheet, I can cut a pattern and apply it to the sheet.
You may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any relevant information.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am not sure you still need any help, since your entry was so long ago, but I recently restored a black / black 72 SJ G.P. and found 90% of everything I needed inc. trunk spatter paint at YEAR ONE... they have an online site and will send you a catalog. They are terrific people. Expensive, but REAL stuff... you will be glad you did biz with them!! Steve Tuttle.
