For Sale: 1970 Pontiac GTO in THORNTON, Colorado

Vehicle Description

This is not a numbers matching vehicle, but it is a true GTO. This car features: 

* A period correct, rebuilt Pontiac 455 HO engine. Engine code XF. This is the legendary L75 engine. Look it up. Check out the enclosed photo of the engine code chart. This is the most powerful engine Pontiac built in 1970. It features 4 bolt main caps, and the high flow 64 heads. The engine codes show it was built in October, 1969, for the 1970 model year. The engine build code is J109. That means it was built on October 10, 1969. These engines were primarily used in Gran Prix vehicles, but some were used in GTO's. The 455 HO engine was rated at 370 HP. The engine features a RAM AIR 4 intake manifold, RAM AIR 3 cam, Harland Sharp aluminum roller rockers, and Hedman coated headers.This is a true RAM AIR system with working air intakes on the hood. The original Rochester Quadrajet 4bbl was rebuilt in 2019. 

* Richmond T 10 four speed transmission with Hurst shift kit. Clutch replaced in 2019.

*12 bolt posi rear end with .342 rear gears.

*Front disc and rear drum braking system. Brake pads replaced in 2018.

*Front and rear sway bars. Boxed lower control arms.

*New Classic Air AC system, with completely new heater box and ducting installed in 2018.

*American made Badlanz exhaust cut outs, with metal gears.

* Rebuilt original AM radio with new speakers, and a pigtail connector in the glove box, so you can play music through your phone or MP3 player.

*Shocks, suspension parts, and wheel bearings were replaced in 2018.

* During the rebuild, we installed interior sound matting and a new carpet kit.

This car has been a labor of love to work on, and a blast to drive. There is still some minor fit and finish issues to work on, but I have cancer and will not be able to finish this build. I am 70 years old, so you can safely assume this car has not been abused, it is a cruiser and car show queen. Most people have never seen a 455 GTO, so it really turns heads. Cruising into the car shows with the cut outs open gets justified attention.
