About “Dragula”

My wife and I bought this car April '08. This is the first picture I took after we pushed it off the trailer. We have gone through and completed all the work neccessay to get this old girl back on the road. She sat for about 6 years and fired up on the first try!!

Dragula is a work in progress.....but we are enjoying her every step of the way!

Unrestored 2 OWNER! 1964 Grand Prix 389ci MATCHING NUMBERS!! auto trans, orig interior, orig window sticker, invoice,protecto-plate POP and sales jacket, this car was not bought new from a Pontiac dealer it was bought new directly from Pontiac in Michigan through the factory retail sales showroom!! There is a interesting story here so read on!!

Bought new on July 7th 1964 by Mr Aurther E. Stoller of Bellevue Washington while on vacation in Michigan over the 4th of July holiday that year, Car was then driven to the west coast at the end of there vaction from where it has remained all these years. Mr Stoller relocated down to Califorina in the late 60's and the car remained here is Southern Calif its entire life. SOLID ORIG FLOORS, CLEAN AND DRY!! original interior, carpet headliner etc and show well for a car of this age. Car recieved one repaint in the 80's and shows outstandingly well. Original color of Grenadeer red which is quite rare for a Grand Prix I have only seen 2 others myself in the past 40yrs. Car has been serviced and detailed, new tires, rebuilt Hydra-Matic transmission, new mufflers, all orig chrome and trim, it drives like new. with its odd history it make this one rare indian!!



Picking up where the Pontiac Ventura model left off, the Grand Prix first appeared in the Pontiac line for 1962. It was essentially a standard Pontiac Catalina coupe with minimal outside chrome trim and a sportier interior (bucket seats and a center console. The performance-minded John De Lorean, head of Advanced Engineering at Pontiac, contributed greatly to the development of both the Grand Prix and the GTO. Early models had full access to the Pontiac performance option list, including the factory-race Super Duty 421 powertrain installed in a handful of 1962 and 1963 cars.
