Where do I start? First time offered in 55 years. A former 1968 & 1970 Winternationals Stock “D” Class contestant. 1964 Pontiac GTO, 389 Tri Power, 4 Speed, 17,862 original miles. Rare Sunfire Red color (factory discontinued after 6 months due to lack of interest). Believed to be the lowest mileage Sunfire Red Tri Power 4 Speed in existence. It is also estimated that less than 5 Tri-Power 4 speeds were built in this color.
Here is the story. This car was originally factory ordered by Bob Weyrick while living in Ohio, to be used strictly for drag racing in Southern California. He took delivery in Portland, OR. , to get around the California Smog issues. When he arrived to pick up his car, he asked where it was. They pointed to his car and said “it’s right there”. Bob said he didn’t order that pink looking color. It turns out he had marked the wrong box on the order form. There were 3 different “reds” offered that year, Marimba Red, Grenadier Red and Sunfire Red. He decided to keep it and off to California he went. Bob settled in Lompoc, CA. and began drag racing “THE OLD GOAT”. Bob (he’s passed now) said that 12,000 to 14,000 of the miles on the odometer are from being “flat towed” to the various drag strips around Southern California. There is tons of race history included with the car along with a large inventory of parts. More on that later. The car was raced in the mid to late 60’s. Included are lots of time slips from local drag strips in the 1960’s ….Santa Maria Drag Strip, Riverside Raceway, Lyons Drag Strip and The Pomona Winternationals. Lots of other drag racing memorabilia, brochures from the 1968 & 1970 Winternationals in Pomona, CA…with his name and car listed in them. There is a hand written letter signed by Ed Pink, responding to Bob’s inquiry about some engine work on the GTO. Original owner’s manual and warranty book with the protect o plate. The original M20 transmission is included..in pieces. It currently has a M22 and the required scatter shield. Posi-traction rear end with 4:11 gears. Original interior. No one has ever sat in the back seat except 2 kids, once, by the previous owner. Bob red-lighted at the start of the 1970 Winternationals and that was it for “THE OLD GOAT”. He was so frustrated, he quit drag racing and parked the car in his hanger where it sat for 21 years and he refused to sell it. He finally called the 2nd owner, and he bought it and owned it for 28 years. He was a body and paint guy in Lompoc and repainted the car to the original color. The paint job is show quality. Original spare, jack and jacking instructions on the “trunk sticker” is still there. Everything works! Included in the sale are spare cams, lifters, an aluminum flywheel, the original M & H drag slicks (still hold air and no checking on the sidewalls), the original bell housing, a pair of unused tail pipes in mint condition, and 4 boxes of misc parts. Also included are tons of 35MM slides and 8mm movies, original factory repair manual, Book signed by GTO Guy Pete McCarthy.. Sell $110,000.00 Call or text 714-469-1023 Thanks Ron
