This beautiful Sierra Yellow GTO is a great example from the collection of a local Texan with over twenty 60's & 70's Pontiacs in his current stable. While many of his Pontiacs get receive full restorations, others with great potential get "cut loose" early to fund other projects. While some of the current components are not original to this GTO, it is a very solid and straight example that is ready for use as a daily driver today. And by "daily driver" we might further clarfy that title by correctly calling it "...daily driver that can smoke the tires all the way down the street!" While born with a 400 V8, this beauty is now powered by a 455 with "96 heads." The original 4 speed has be changed to an automatic transmission tied to a 9" stall speed converter and a 3.73 posi rear end. When you put your foot into the gas, it does what a muscle car is supposed to do ...scream! There is not currently an A/C system although the vehicle was plumbed for one on the assembly line. The Ram-Air hood is nothing more than a character-building decal. It is not shown in photos but we are replacing the B&M shifter with a factory console and shifter. This Pontiac needs very little mechanically and everything works like it should. We wouldn't hesitate to jump in this GTO and take a long Sunday drive. Cosmetically you can see the rear seat is stained, the carpet is aged, there is a scratch on the endura nose, etc. These simple fixes paired with the non-originality of the drivetrain is why you are looking at a $25k price tag instead of the current valuations of $60k+ offered by Hagerty, NADA, and KBB (booked as a 400 / 4 Spd). Additional features and options on this GTO that haven't already been mentioned include; Power Steering, Power Brakes, Hood Tach, Clarion AM/FM/Cassette Radio, Chrome Bumpers, Chrome Mirrors, Soft Ray Tinted Glass, Dual Exhaust, Original Owners Manual, Protect-O-Plate, 15" Rally II Wheels, and thick P215/75 R15 Tires! Tires! As you will see in the photos below, this is an exceptional classic Pontiac that can be purchased for only $24,900! Additional photos can be viewed at www.monacoluxury.com.
