Buckle up those automatic seatbelts folks, because we’re about to take a ride in the time machine to the era of mullets, neon leg warmers, and cassette tapes – all with a dash of Pontiac marketing buzzword swagger! Aerocoupe. This “aerodynamic marvel” was as close as the ’80s got to a stealth bomber with a […]
Back in the 1980s the product planners at GM decided they needed to be more competitive in NASCAR, so they followed what they had done with the 1977-78 Impala Coupe with double bent tempered rear glass, and created a number of “aerodynamic” shared cars for the corporate fleet, including the Grand Prix 2+2 Aerocoupe, and what we have here today, which is a Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe. It isn’t conventionally pretty, but it’s pretty awesome. Find this 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe offered for $17,500 in West Babylon, NY via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.
When tipper Cory sent us an email with the subject line; rare G-body- 86 grand prix with funky rear window glass, I instantly knew it was one of those sweet Poncho 2+2 Aerocoupes and there was no way I wasn’t gonna feature it. But the best part is that the car is offered for a reasonable sum of money and looks great in black (this is a repaint from the original silver-black two-tone from the factory). Get one of the 1118 Grand Prix 2+2’s built to homologate an aero nose, bubble glass, and fiberglass trunk lid for NASCAR competition.

This next car had me confused for a few minutes. The seller lists it as a Pontiac 2+2…and there was a model of Poncho called the 2+2 that was a full sized Catalina based big brother to the GTO…but this mid eighties thing has some interesting NASCAR aero looks…which reminded me of a car that we had called the Aerocoupe in the past…but Pontiac didn’t use the Aerocoupe name (that was used on the Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS version) on their version of the custom aero nose, bubble glass back, and fiberglass trucklid with spoiler…they inexplicably called it the Grand Prix 2+2. Find this 1986 Pontiac Grand Prix 2+2 offered for $14,000 in Dayton, OH via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.
Personal two door coupes sold by the truck loads in the 60’s-70’s-80’s, but are hardly produced any longer in 2018. Today’s Impala coupe has been given a Grand National style black out treatment and the results look almost vintage AMG like by my eye. Under the hood features a Chevy LS swap that should motivate […]
The Pontiac Grand Prix 2+2 Aerocoupe was a limited edition NASCAR homologation special with an aerodynamic nose and rear bubble glass to help the GM’s NASCAR shape be a bit more slippery. The Aerocoupe fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. Find this 1986 Pontiac Grand Prix Aerocoupe […]
