134941 / 1970 Pontiac GTO
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/ma7tk5t An early star of TLC’s Overhaulin’ series, this killer GTO was penned by Chip Foose, fitted with a 461 cubic inch Pontiac V8 and fully finished by some of the best fabricators in the world! It seems all re-imagined classics have a story, and this stunning Pontiac is no exception. Back in 2004, Overhaulin’, a project that showcased the raw talent of Chip Foose and his group of A-Team fabricators, was becoming a big hit on cable channel TLC. Well-known singer and actress Sheryl Crow decided to contact the show’s producers in hopes of planning a star-studded episode. Her idea was to overhaul the 1970 GTO convertible she gifted then boyfriend Lance Armstrong when he claimed his sixth Tour de France championship. Unfortunately, as nice as the tiger was, it needed a little help. And, after some careful planning and eight days of intense labor, Foose and his team of master craftsmen transformed the car into the beauty you see here. What does a group of enterprising hot rodders do when tweaked factory fodder just won’t cut it? They call up Butler Performance of Leoma, Tennessee and order a balanced and blueprinted torque monster that spins 450 horsepower into 528 lb./ft. of tire-scorching twist! Toss this tin indian’s hood and you’ll find a 461 cubic inch Pontiac V8 that’s been stroked, smoothed, painted, and dressed in some of the best components on the planet. The vicious sounding powerplant rides in an OEM-quality bay, which reflects glossy paint via smoothed panels. And the enlightened muscle car enthusiast will immediately spot details like a dual-reservoir brake Booster and custom-painted steering linkage. Behind that massaged motor, a proven GM turbo-Hydramatic 2004R utilizes a custom driveshaft to spin a rugged posi-traction differential around a 12-bolt Moser rear end. At the front of the car, modern power steering combines with Hotchkis springs, a Hotchkis sway bar and Hotchkis upper control arms to provide razor-sharp handling. At the back of the car, a factory 4-link utilizes a second Hotchkis sway bar and two more Hotchkis springs to provide excellent grip. And at the corners of the car, power hits the pavement via custom Foose wheels, which spin 235/35ZR19 BF Goodrich g-Force T/As in front of 265/35ZR20 BF Goodrich g-Force T/As. Take a peek at this A-Body’s fully insulated cockpit and you’ll find a simple black interior that was completely replaced during the car’s extensive restoration. The firm front bucket and rear bench seats, factory units, are covered in fine, silver-piped leather. In front of those seats, a factory dash, which is detailed with color-keyed trim, hangs rebuilt gauges above an Alpine head unit, Vintage Air climate control and a second “SPRINT6” emblem. Beneath that dash, a stitched and painted console props Auto Meter accessory gauges in front of a correct shifter and chrome power window switches. And in front of the driver, a color-keyed wheel spins a custom, LIVESTRONG-themed horn button around a modern tilt steering column. Absolutely no expense was spared building this one-of-a-kind GTO. It combines professional grade performance hardware with some of the coolest customization in the hobby to create a take-no-prisoners muscle car.
