One of the most aggressive looking GTO's ever built the 1972 model was once
again an options package and had a pile of comfort and style while
retaining much of the bite of its forebears. This very cool Lucerne Blue
number retains all of its original body panels, its original 400ci engine,
is exactly as the Pontiac Historical Society documents lay it out and it's
a four speed - that's the way you want one. Great cars to drive these
tigers are collectables on the rise!
Underneath, you'll find an exceptionally clean chassis. This isn't a full
frame off restoration - it didn't need one! Those are the original, clean
floors, rust free frame and original rear end and handling package
suspension. A quick evaluation is all that's necessary to see the original
brake and fuel systems were up to their tasks and required no major
replacement. That's the original undercoating you're looking at! So many of
these cars died an early death it's refreshing to see one that's so clean!
Deep blue paint covers the rock solid, original exterior. The front end is
definitely the best part with its straight body color bumper, excellent
deeply inset grilles and aggressive hood. The GTO exclusive fenders with
rear air extractors add interest to the sides of the car and look awesome
with the mint Rally II wheels and new Firestone G70x15 Wide Ovals. The body
is straight - care taken during its cosmetic restoration is evident. The
trim and chrome is in excellent shape and is mostly original to the car.
Bodywork was minimal and the finish work was done to a high standard. This
is an attractive car with no hidden gremlins.
Comfortable black vinyl seats with new covers are the order of the day in
the restored interior. The sculpted, clean dash pad covers the fully
functional and clean original gauge cluster and nice original engine turned
finish panels. Original door panels with original armrests are very nice,
interior chrome is original and excellent and there's new carpet at your
feet. The factory Formula steering wheel is in excellent shape and feels
great in your hands. The center console with its Hurst shifter is also a
clean original - there are no complaints from in here. The cabin's simply a
great place to spend time!
Open the trunk to find a brand new Wide Oval mounted to a fifth, mint Rally
II wheel. There's a new mat on the floor, the proper jack, new
weather-stripping on the rail and a fresh coat of spatter paint underneath.
Like the interior and undercarriage, there are no problems and no
Pop the hood and find the original, numbers matching engine in a detailed
engine bay. That's the correct original air cleaner on top of the rebuilt
mill. Some liberty was taken with the internals as the compression's up to
around 10:1 and there's a Ram Air IV spec cam to get the power up to where
you'd expect a 400 to be. Those are original chrome valve covers on the
motor, a restored vacuum Booster and
master cylinder on the firewall and a new battery and correct spring clamp
cables tucked away in the corner. New belts and hoses (with correct tower
clamps) are reliable replacements in this excellent driver!
Solid, original body and engine cars are tough to come by. So are desirable
cars with great color combinations and manual transmissions. And, so are
cars which are still affordable! This car's all three and it's only going
to get more valuable over time! Don't wait on this one!

John DeLorean replaced Pete Estes as general manager, and he continued the
same emphasis on performance that Bunkie Knudsen and Estes had begun.
The big news for 1964 For 1964, the Tempest and LeMans' transaxle design
was dropped and the cars were redesigned under GM's new A body platform;
frame cars with a conventional front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. The
most important of these is the GTO, short for "Gran Turismo Omologato," the
Italian for "Grand Touring, Homologated" used by Ferrari as a badge to
announce a car's official qualification for racing. In spite of a GM
unwritten edict against engines larger than 330 ci in intermediate cars,
DeLorean (with support from Jim Wangers from Pontiac's ad agency), came up
with the idea to offer the GTO as a dealer option package that included a
389 ci engine rated at 325 or 348 horsepower (260 kW).

Judge, equipped with a 366 HP 400 V-8 High Output engine with Ram Air III.
Matt picked a bit of a cheater 2006 Pontiac Custom GTO. The modern GTO is
straight from GM Performance with a Twin turbo LS2 with 750 HP. Which one would you rather
