Awesome GTO that has been extremely well cared for with a very careful restoration completed approximately 20 years ago. Within the documentation that we have are photos of the various parts of the restoration process which are labeled with dates, PHS Documentation, paint code lists, and an original owner's manual. A 428ci V8 replaces the original 389 that the car left the factory with, but retains the 4 speed manual transmission. Fontaine Blue paint and Parchment interior trim look the part on this classic GTO.
GM's advertising boasted that “the only way to tell a real tiger from a pussycat was to drive one” - a GTO that is. The factory correct Fontaine Blue (code D) looks great on the body lines of this classic Pontiac. The body is in great condition from tip to tail. Body panels all line up as they should, chrome and trim is in great condition, and the lights and corresponding bezels are in great condition.
Factory correct Parchment seats (code 218) provide a nice contrast to the Fontaine Blue exterior. Highlights of the interior are three spoke steering wheel, push button radio, wood veneer dashboard, factory tach, and black carpeting.
During the restoration process a 421ci V8 that was bored to a 428ci was installed under the hood. A 4-speed manual transmission handles gear selection and 3 Rochester carbs handle fuel air mixture. The engine bay is highly detailed and very clean. Just as the car left the factory, Redline tires are wrapped around the 14” wheels. The car has drum brakes on all four corners as well as power steering. The underside of the car is nicely detailed and clean.
On the road, this car runs like a pent up caged animal that has been freed. Make room in your garage for this classic, clean, and documented Pontiac. It's truly a jaw dropping classic muscle car to consider for your collection. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors.
