This is a nut & bolt rotisserie restored example boasting modern Hotchkis tubular suspension, a high performance built 455 big block V8, and high quality cosmetics throughout. This car was built to cruise and show with driver-friendly features galore such as a Gear Vendor overdrive model 3D400. Enjoy our photos and extensive description. This is your opportunity to own a truly magnificent GTO musclecar.
This transformed GTO began life as a true 242 GTO in the Atoll Blue color, matching interior, and a black cordova top as is indicated on the identa-plate. It was built in 1969 and delivered to Coast Pontiac in December, 1969. In the intervening years, it saw Bakersfield, Chatsworth, and Almeda, California. In the mid 2000, the car spent some time in Arizona before arriving it Texas where it was purchased by its current owner in 2007 Sometime in this journey, the grand old Goat was changed to a Cardinal Red & Judge graphics added. This was a clean, rust free, and numbers-matching survivor.
The current owner had a different vision for the car. He set about to make it one of kind with supreme drivability, while maintaining the classic 70 GTO look. He also wanted to maintain the numbers viability of the car. The original 400 c.i. engine was removed and put into storage, replaced with a professionally built 1970 455 big block you will read about soon. The car was lifted off the frame and the work began.

Many of our photos of this American Musclecar were taken at the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum, located only minutes from our showroom. You can fly high or fly low in this menacing Pontiac GTO.
The exterior paint and trim was done by Picassos of Ft. Worth, Texas in midnight black with one capful of respberry metal flake added per quart. Following this was 4 coats of clear. The paint is stunning in sunlight and or under display lights at car shows. The body itself was excellent prior to the paint and body work. This has always been a dry climate GTO.
Handling prowess is greatly improved thanks to extensive suspension modifications. The entire suspension was removed and replaced with a heavy duty Hotchkis TVS tubular suspension. In addition, a close-ratio power steering box was added to tighten up control to the steering wheel. The wheels of choice are polished Ansen Sport wheels sized at 235/60R15 up front and 255/70R17 out back, wrapped in classic B.F. Goodrich Radial T/As.
The engine compartment is a jewelry box with
