Thank you for the add, this is the fifth car in my collection. I had one back in 2004 and I missed it so much. I found this gem in FB marketplace in West Virginia. It came with a ZZ4 crate engine hooker ceramic coated heders, Ford 9 bolt posi rear end with 3.73 gears and a 200 R4 automatic with a shift kit. The interior was in excellent condition. waiting on the GTA black wheels to come in from Jegs. I am debating on blacking it all out and get rid of the chrome. I just installed a Trans Am low rise spoiler and a set of 16 inch wheels I had, thoughts?

Welcome to the GBodyForum!
Sharp Gran Prix. The inside is in nice shape too. Leaving the outside chrome and stripes keeps that factory look.

I personally like the chrome. On the outside I would add another red pinstripe about 1-2 inches below the window.

No paint peeling on the chrome on the inside, I ended up pulling the one I did by the felts. It started to come up but that was because I used plasti dip and didn't cut before pulling the tape so it started to pull the dip when I first did it.
Great job! She looks really good!
Appreciate it
