This 1967 GTX is a super clean, near-survivor 4-speed car with 99% of its original parts. Present is the original fender tag, original distributor tag, original seat tags and all original sheet-metal.
Understanding that we had a 100% correct, complete numbers-matching car, we decided to send the original engine, transmission and air cleaner off to Shepard's Automotive. In case you've never heard of Shepard's, they were founded by Larry Shepard, Sr., an engineer at Chrysler Corporation in the 1960s, who worked under Tom Hoover (the Godfather of the HEMI at Chrysler when they rolled out the street HEMI in 1966). Larry was later an engineer at Mopar Performance and has literally written the book on Mopar performance engines (in fact, I think he's written five or six). With an impressive bank of NOS and original parts and an even more impressive knowledge base, there was nobody out there better suited to restore the drive-train in our GTX.
With the doors, fenders, deck lid and hood removed, the entire body was placed on a rotisserie and sent off for dipping and e-coating. After the body was returned to our shop, we completed the metal work quickly, which was limited to a few small patches in the lower driver's side quarter panel. Because we replicated the original factory welds, you wouldn't know that the work was done if we didn't tell you. As we learned when we received the body shell back from the dip shop, the original floor pans, trunk floor and floor pans were perfect, with no prior rot or rust.
With the metal work complete, the car was primed, block-sanded, block-sanded some more and then block-sanded again for good measure and then painted in base coat/clear coat. Only after the base paint and clear coat were applied was the Medium Red Metallic sport stripes painted on, exactly the way it was done on the assembly line. If you ever see a restored 1967 GTX with the painted stripes flush with the base color, it's WRONG. On the underside, our restoration shop replicated the factory primer processes, complete with blown overspray.
After the drivetrain was properly bolted into place, our shop installed the original and now restored Dana 60 rear axle and restored rear suspension. We installed brand new stainless fuel lines, brake lines, brake hoses, grommets, weather-stripping and gaskets. A new fuel tank was bolted into place, and a complete, reproduction concours HEMI Exhaust handles the soundtrack. The entire braking system was reinstalled, using a combination of restored original and replacement parts. After the front suspension was in place, the restored and extremely hard to find 1967-only HEMI steel wheels were bolted up to the car, complete with four brand new reproduction redline tires. Finishing off the restored rolling stock were the four original, restored HEMI-only dog dish caps.
Turning our attention to the interior, our in-house interior expert Ralph Farinacci went to work. The front and rear seats and most of the interior parts had been finished by Ralph over the prior three months and simply needed to be installed. Ralph is a big believer in using original parts, right down to original screws and that's how he approached the restoration of the interior on this GTX. Of course, there are new door panels and vinyl seat covers, but every other piece is original to the car. The original dash pad was restored, along with the original gauge cluster. The original steering wheel was expertly refinished to better-than-new condition. Small touches like original restored kick panels and an original rear seat speaker set this car apart from the "catalog restorations" we see so often. 1967 GTXs have boatloads of interior chrome and every single piece was redone to concours standards.
Since the restoration was completed, this amazing GTX has been gently and carefully broken in and dialed in and is a true investment grade car which can be enjoyed on summer nights or rolled off a trailer at any concourse event. We all have our ultimate cars-if the 1967 HEMI GTX is yours, you can't do much better than this one!

132636 / 1980 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo Pace Car
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cxmoqkm
As one of only 5,700 cars built to commemorate the first time one car paced
both the Indy 500 and Daytona 500 in the same year, this 1980 Trans Am turbo Pace Car is one of the most exclusive
Trans Ams ever built.
Owned by one very meticulous owner and garage kept for its entire
existence, this pristine California Pontiac is one of the cleanest second
generation Trans Ams we've ever offered. Thanks to three decades of
exceptional maintenance and a little cosmetic T.L.C. from RK Motors
Charlotte's first rate restoration shop, the car presents as well today as
it did it when it rolled off the showroom floor over 30 years ago. A bright
and crisp coat of correct GM code 11 Cameo White covers 100% original body
panels which are straight, rock solid and free of waves and major
imperfections. Because this Trans Am has never been fully disassembled, it
still displays completely accurate panel gaps that are surprisingly tight
and provide the car with great panel fitment and correct factory alignment.
On top of the ghost white panels, a fresh set of tri-color outlining
stripes perfectly complements a five color 'turbo bird' hood decal and factory applied
Indianapolis 500 Pace Car door stickers to complete the look.
Under this Trans Ams "turbo" stamped
hood you'll find an all original Pontiac code YL turbocharged 301 V8 that made substantially more
twist than the mighty 6.6 liter it replaced while being significantly more
efficient. Originally conceived as an economy offering, the Pontiac 301 was
beefed up with a slew of upgrades in preparation for a Garrett TBO-305 turbocharger. Once the turbo was installed, it created a waste limited 9
PSI of Boost and helped the reborn
301 achieve 236 horsepower and a serious 345
lb./ft. of torque. Riding below a factory installed heat shield that
prevents the paint on the car's hood from bubbling, that Garrett blower is
fed by a high pressure fuel pump, cooled by a high pressure oil pump and
breathes through turbo specific Exhaust manifolds. Below the turbo, a YL 301 specific Rochester Quadrajet M4ME
800 CFM carburetor sits in front of an original HEI distributor which sends
power to the cylinders through blue Belden Edge plug wires. All the hard
parts around the motor, from the belt driven accessories to the brake Booster and turbo mandated C51 air conditioning are factory
original pieces, and all the belts and hoses appear to be in good working
Behind the motor, the cars original tough and proven turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic
transmission sends power to the cars original 3.08 Posi-traction rear end,
and a standard WS6 handling package. For 1980, the WS6 package included
larger sway bars, better shocks and springs, a tighter steering gear box
and newly designed power front and rear disc brakes that, when combined
with the cars standard power steering, made for serious handling ability
and greatly reduced stopping distances. Power flows to the pavement through
pliable 225/70 white letter Goodyear Polysteel Radials that are mounted to
exclusive 15 inch 'turbo' style aluminum
The cars all original fully equipped Oyster interior features optional
doeskin vinyl with hobnail cloth inserts which creates a sophisticated
appearance. The firm and comfortable seats are nicely patterned pieces that
feel every bit as comfortable as they look, and the original brown carpet
shows very little wear. Between the seats, a clean gray console houses
chrome switches for the cars power windows behind an engine turned shift
plate, and above the seats, a stain free headliner is stretched tight
around the cars mirrored tops. In front of the driver, an excellent looking
engine turned dash houses crystal clear gauges above controls for heat and
air conditioning and the cars exclusive Delco-GM seek/scan stereo cassette
player. At the sides of the seats, excellent Oyster door panels that
feature bright 'turbo bird' embroidery
are detailed in pristine stainless trim and chrome door handles and door
lock buttons. Connecting the driver to the road is a correct aluminum
steering wheel that features a gray rim and sits on an optional tilt
With its clean turbocharged motor,
fantastic interior and rare low mileage, this has to be one of the nicest
Trans Am turbo Pace Cars available
