This is a real code 242 GTO. It's a great looking, driver quality
car. It will turn heads, get compliments but won't win 1st place at
the GTO nationals. I'll take the compliments over trophies any
EXTERIOR: Well it certainly is a good looking car. The color is
attention getting and the Cragars really pop. The body is really
straight, look front to back, there's not a wave. It is smooth all
along the bottom. The paint job is very smooth and glossy. It does
have a number minor flaws that people walking up and looking won't
notice. In front the bumper and headlight bezels are excellent. It
has correct T-3 headlights. There is a tachometer mounted to the
hood. The mirrors are new. The back bumper is nice. The
weatherstrips are original and are brittle. It has a proud stance.
The 15 inch chrome Cragars sparkle like new.

excellent. The carpet is good. It has a complete set of GM seat
belts. The dash area is original. No splits in the dash pad. It has
a tachometer on the column and a gauge cluster below the dash. It
has a walnut steering wheel. It has working interior lights, even
in the glove box. It has quartz movement in the clock. The best
part of all is that Hurst shifter sticking out of the floor between
the bucket seats.

mufflers with the correct stainless tips. The brake system was
rebuilt, upgraded with drilled and slotted discs in front. New

real clean. It has minor amount of rust in the driver's floor
This is a real GTO. It isn't show quality but when you are out
shifting those gears it will be turning heads. It's a looker.

professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure
your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do
a walk around video that explains the car's condition in
