Autotrader Find: 4,000-Mile Pontiac Grand Prix Richard Petty Edition

Here’s a 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix with 4,000 miles, which already makes for an interesting Autotrader find, only this one has something else that makes it special: It was delivered new at a NASCAR track and personally signed by Richard Petty.

Details are scant, but here’s what I’ve been able to piece together. This is a 1992 Grand Prix "Richard Petty Special Edition," which — from the look of things — is just a regular ’92 Grand Prix GTP with a decal on the back that says "Richard Petty Special Edition." It also has a little plaque in front that says "1992 Fan Appreciation Tour" emblazoned with Richard Petty’s face and his stock car.

Aside from that, it looks — to me — like a regular ’92 Grand Prix, crazy, million-spoke, red-trimmed wheels and insane, button-filled steering wheel included. But this one is special, because it was apparently delivered new in 1992 at Martinsville Speedway, where it was signed by Richard Petty. Or maybe they were all delivered new at NASCAR tracks. Of course, no one actually knows, because no one remembers this anymore.

Anyway, the point is, Richard Petty signed the sun visor, and then this car was basically put away undriven for 25 years, and now it’s for sale with 4,015 miles by Lewin Yount Auto Sales in Winchester, Virginia, near the West Virginia border, where you can buy it for $12,500. That’s big money for a ’92 Pontiac, but this ’92 Pontiac might just be the most special ’92 Pontiac left. Or maybe it’s just the only one left. Find a Pontiac Grand Prix for sale
