Description

This writer's favorite version of the venerable GTO the Pontiac division got it all right this year. Stacked dual headlights framed with pristine mirror-like bezels flank a woven wire chromed grille with signal lights and GTO badging, and a lower bumper in very good original condition. Looking down the line towards the rear we can see only straight steel, well minded factory gaps, and miles of Mariner Turquoise paint covering broken up by a white pinstripe, and a lower stainless rocker cover again with the GTO badge up front next to the wheel well. The paint is the factory applied coating and does present with some cracking, stone chips, scratches and dings but overall is remaining nice for a 55 year old paint job. A dinged in header panel leads to long straight scooped hood with dealer-installed hood pins backed up to clean glass all around, all framed by shiny polished trim. This trim does a very nice job of highlighting the black vinyl roof which shows with no tears or evidence of rust bubbling underneath and you've gotta love those flying buttress B pillars that frame the rear glass deep set within them. Moving to the back a long laser straight trunk lid curves downward to the foursome of horizontal thin rear tail light clusters, and more gorgeous framing of chromed trim and a snappy rear bumper. Lest we forget the factory installed and highly sought-after option code 522 red fender liners that are rarely seen as few were ordered and very few have survived in original condition and the not oft seen factory power antenna. 14-inch Pontiac Rally 1 wheels are all around and sport BFG raised white letter radial rubber. This goat oozes with originality!
You can take this interior to the bank in black...the vinyl is just beautifully preserved and original. Door panels with their inset GTO badges, front buckets and rear bench are the exact parts this Pontiac was assembled with and show well thanks to years of care and proper preservation. We note the optional headrests and even the option code 578 reclining passenger's bucket seat. A wood applique covers the center console which races through the front buckets making room for the factory Hurst shifter and goes forward hiding under the original dash. More perfect wood applique for the gauge cluster, and center panel which houses the airflow levers and the original AM/FM radio. To add more excitement, the original custom sport steering wheel is fronting this all original dash. Topping off the dash is the original crack free pad and in front of the passenger is the obligatory Jesus bar, GTO badge and glove box. Factory black carpet floods the floors and presents with only minor fading and wear while a black headliner floats perfectly above all this as from the factory interior beauty.
A lift of the hood, and we are being stared at with the steely blue gaze of the factory installed engine block and intake manifold, and its chromed valve covers. An original to this car WT stamped 400ci V8 pumping out 335 horses, is topped by #670 heads and a 4-barrel Rochester Quadrajet carb. This mill sits in an unrestored engine bay that is correct right now to the chalk marks on the fire wall. Bolted to the back is the original Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission (stamping P7A26) and bringing up the rear is the window sticker specified 10-bolt 3.23 Safe-T-Track axle. It just doesn't get much more original than this.
