GTO ConvertiblesVehicle ID # 242678Z126431Engine Unit # YZ4999Transmission Unit # PX35987Rear-end 3:55 gear ratio�This vehicle was bought off the showroom floor in Castle Rock Colorado by Richard Laufert a pilot for United Airlines. Although he has since passed away his wife still had all the maintenance records and other valuable documentation for the car. She attested that the car had never been driven in the winter contributing to the low mileage on the convertible. Other than the H.O. engine and console-mounted Dual Gate automatic the care was a bare-bones GTO with only a radio and front disc brakes.To the best of my knowledge based on documentation the original owner had the vehicle until the early 1980's when it was sold to Doug Cosh. He drove the car from the early 1980's to 1987 from approximately 45000 to 92500 miles. The vehicle was then sold to Robert Thompson who drove it from 1087 to 1993 to approximately 100000 miles. ( December 1990 cover of the National GTO magazine "The Legend"). The vehicle was in Colorado until it was sold to it's fourth owner in 1993 and presently has 104000 miles.Vehicle Restoration from 1993 to 2008:Rebuilt transmission and torque converterRebuilt carburetorRebuilt radiatorNew white top tinted glass window pads liner and complete detailReplaced master cylinderReplaced both front calipers pads and front brake rotorsInstalled uni-light ignition systemNew red-line tiresRally II wheels trim rings lugs PMD center capsAlignment new front end parts and frame adjustmentComplete engine overhaul @ 102500New belts HV oil pump water pump fuel sender coil springs shocks horn relayNew windshield shifter plate insert and detailed dashboardNew exhaust systemNew tail lensesReplaced convertible top hydraulic lines Visit Coyote Classics online at coyoteclassics.com to see more pictures of this vehicle or call us at 641-512-4727 today to schedule your test drive.
