1970 Pontiac GTO Hardtop 400 V8 4 Speed Manual

3 hits ID #22958

Description

For 1970 GM tweaked the GTO's design with a number of detail changes and subtle refinements. At the front of the car, Pontiac's installed smaller twin grilles with chrome trimmed quad headlamps at the edges of the iconic Endura bumper.
Take a look inside this A-Body's cockpit and you'll find a snazzy black interior. Front and center a straight and crack-free dash wears a wood applique around the original gauges with an engine turned aluminum panel at the bottom. On the floor, a Hurst shifter in the original center console sits between the two bucket front seats. The seating, both front buckets and rear bench, show very nicely with not a mar or spot of wear to be seen. At the sides of those seats, stainless-trimmed door panels hang red-inlaid “GTO” emblems above the original hardware and armrests. Below those panels, very clean black carpet frames chrome-trimmed foot pedals. In front of the driver, what appears to be an original Pontiac 3 spoke formula steering wheel with its Pontiac arrowhead in the center now has a leatherette wrap installed around the perimeter. Behind the passengers, the trunk is finished with a red oxide paint and has a correct liner mat and full sized spare tire.

A non original 1978 400ci V8, (casting # 481988 and stamping coded X7), steel blue painted block topped with casting number 12 Ram Air III cylinder heads rests between the fenders. An non original, circa 1967 Muncie M20 4-speed manual is behind the mill and sends power back is a 10-bolt 3.55 conventional rear axle with a 1968 casting date. This engine presents nicely in a fully restored engine bay and has some extra bling from the factory in the form of chrome valve covers and a functional Ram Air air cleaner assembly.
