If you know anything about muscle car history it would be unheard
of to not recognize the classic GTO. These cars were first released
in 1964 by Pontiac and many give them credit for kicking off the
60's muscle car era. Immediately other manufacturers jumped on
board and followed Pontiacs lead by introducing the Mustang, Camaro
and various other models between many manufacturers. Big V8 motors,
2 doors, sloping roof lines, and fun was what the American Muscle
Car was all about. GTO was initially put out as an optional
performance package available on the Pontiac LeMans. That trend
continued until 1966 when the GTO became its own separate model.
With the arrival of 1972 it returned to being an optional package
for LeMans and although the look changed some throughout the years
the iconic split grill, horizontal taillights, and double
headlights remained. This very nice 1972 Pontiac GTO was originally
delivered new to Edwardsville, Illinois. It comes with PHS
documentation and its broadcast sheet indicating it is a true GTO.
The car was originally Brasillia Gold with a black vinyl top but
has been repainted to Lucerne Blue at some point in the past. These
cars look very tough sporting the popular Endura front bumper which
frames the grill and eliminates the bulky chrome bumpers people had
been used to in the past few decades. It still has the chrome
bumper in rear and stainless trim around the windows, wheel wells
and on the rockers. The car has a great stance and rolls around on
a set of 15 inch Rally wheels with Pontiac center caps. The 215/70
tires have a lot of life left and were replaced in May 2021.
Pop open the dual vented ram air hood and you will find it is
powered by 400 c.i. V8 motor topped off with a 4 barrel carburetor
and dual snorkel air cleaner. It has a stock appearance with a lot
of the components painted the factory Light Blue Pontiac color. In
2019 the camshaft was replaced along with the starter. It also
received a new Flowmaster dual H pipe exhaust system that same year
and the factory AC was serviced and converted to modern R134a
refrigerant. Paired with the motor is a 3 speed automatic
transmission that sends power back to the stock rear end. The car
was special ordered with power brakes and power steering making it
a very comfortable driver.
The interior is done in Black and features dual bucket seats with
headrests. They sit to each side of the factory center console
which has the original wood grain trim, extra storage and houses
the shifter. In front of the driver is the original steering wheel
and mounted to the column is an aftermarket Sunpro tachometer. A
Sunpro set of auxiliary gauges had been added below the dash for
the temp, amp, and pressure gauges. Besides the aftermarket radio
the dash has been kept all stock and even the new radio looks
original. The wood grain trim pieces on the dash as well as the
engine turned piece is all in good condition. The dash pad is all
good as well.
This cool classic comes with a bunch of receipts for previous work
done as well as some documentation including that from Pontiac
Historic Services. It has a clean title and drives out well.
