Purple 1996 Grand Am SE Coupe

After 10 years with my Grand Am, I have decided to move on to a larger car. It has been a good car to me, providing reliable and stylish transportation through graduate school and workaday life. It has a unique purple metallic paint, which is original. I have not seen many Grand Ams with this color.

This is a great car for anyone needing transportation to school, to work, or to just run errands. I am a non-smoker who has always kept it clean and well maintained, so it is in great condition with minimal wear and tear. I have included the highlighted specs and pictures below. (Click here if you want a detailed list of standard specs.)

This year, it has new front brakes, a new alternator and belt, a new front engine gasket, and a new engine sensor. If you would like to see my maintenance log, please contact me with your email address and I will send you a copy. The title is clean and there have been no accidents.

Please email me if you have any questions.
