Here's an awesome Pro-Street GTO tribute that is sure to turn heads with it's raked stance, bright red paint, oversized Mickey Thompson tires, and loud exhaust. Purpose built interior, simple exterior trim, and a clean engine bay are other positive points that this car has going for it.
This classic muscle car is now painted bright red and although it is now badged as a GTO, it started life as a Tempest Custom. Regardless of how it was badged to begin with, or what badges it wears now, this is a very clean car with some slightly radical looks. You may have noticed the extreme forward rake of the car, which is necessary to fit those huge tires “under” the rear fenders. You may be wondering if the wide rear tires are necessary? They certainly provide a bigger contact patch to get the power that the built 427ci V8 produces to the pavement. This thing is built for straight line speed, and getting the power to the ground is a big part in low quarter or eighth mile times.
The simple interior finish is thanks to only the essentials being left inside - a pair of racing seats, an aftermarket steering wheel, and a Hurst shifter. The backseat has been deleted and it's former spot has been neatly carpeted. The dashboard has been kept neat with a tachometer, a few auxiliary gauges, and a few switches being added. The 427ci V8 under the hood is fully built with visible mods consisting of an Edelbrock intake manifold, Holley 4 BBL carburetor, MSD Ignition, aluminum radiator, transmission cooler, and a number of polished dress up parts. Urethane bushings are visible beneath the car as well as a polished driveshaft, and custom exhaust.
On the lookout for a nice Pro-Street car? This GTO might just be the one for you with it's big engine, simple interior, and sleek coke-bottle shape. We know that you won't tire of looking at it, and the car will definitely turn some heads. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our website: Garage Kept Motors.
