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!

57 Tulsa buried 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Boyd Coddington
Tulsa Story :This is a video pictorial of the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere that
was buried in
Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 15, 1957 as a time capsule. It was uncovered 50
years later on June 15, 2007.
I was hoping to see a pristine version of "Miss Belvedere", but as it
out, the vault leaked and filled with water, causing much damage to the
automobile. As a car enthusiast, I watched the story develop over the
few years. I waited and watched it live online as she was extracted from
the ground. When I saw the rust-colored dirt and muck on her, I had a bad
feeling about her condition.
I wish the person who won this car (by guessing the closest to the town's
actual 2007 population back in 1957) could have it restored, but that would
be a massive undertaking. On the other hand, she should get a chance to

Miss Belvedere Moves On
By Old Cars Weekly
After spending nearly 50 years quietly rusting beneath the Tulsa County
Courthouse lawn, the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere affectionately known as "Miss
Belvedere," is on the road once again.
Don't get too excited, when she rolled out of Tulsa earlier today, it
wasn't under her own power—she was whisked out of town in the back of a
After months of legal wrangling to establish ownership of what is clearly
the most famous "finned" Mopar in the world (yes, even more famous than
Stephen King's "infamous" Christine), Miss Belvedere has begun her journey
to New Jersey — and possibly a rust-free future.
Levada Humbertson Carney and Catherine Humbertson Johnson, elderly sisters
from Maryland, will officially take possession of the Belvedere as
beneficiaries of their brother Raymond Humbertson who won the car as part
of a contest held back in 1957.
Buried with the car was a time capsule containing people's guesses as to
what the population of Tulsa would be in 2007. Included among the hundreds
of guesses, was one made by Raymond Humbertson of Cumberland, Md., who died
in 1979. His guess was only 2,286 off the actual census numbers, closer
than any other entry.
Assisting the cars elderly owners will be Levada Carney's son Robert Carney
and Dwight Foster, President of the UltraOne Corporation.
As you will recall, as part of this ongoing saga, New Jersey-based
UltraOne, manufacturer of a line of rust removal products, will now begin
the pain-staking process of de-rusting and preserving what remains of the
According to Robert Carney, the car, which suffers from extensive damage
after being submerged in conditions described as a "watery grave" for an
unknown number of years, may eventually be able to take to the road under
her own power.
Once Miss Belvedere arrives in New Jersey she will undergo a lengthy
cleansing and rust removal process that her new owners and the folks at
UltraOne hope will stabilize the car before sealing it with a clear-coat
designed to halt the rusting process.
"We will not be restoring the car but preserving her for the future," Mr.
Foster told the Tulsa World. "We have to stop the rust, because if nothing
is done, this car will be dust in two years."
According to the UltraOne Web site, future plans for Miss Belvedere could
include a second Tulsa unveiling and a tour around the country for special
events. Following the tour, the car's future remains unclear.
However, it has speculated that the car could find her way to the
Barrett-Jackson auction block in Scottsdale in the coming years.

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

132503 / 1964 Pontiac GTO
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/d2rqzqe
If you're looking for exclusivity, this is the GTO to own. The paint is a
special order color not on the Pontiac books and reflected in the cowl tag,
it is factory-equipped with a 389 Tri-Power engine and optional 4-speed,
and has enough documentation to answer all the questions you're sure to get
at the Pontiac Nationals.
The color is correct, and research suggests that it's close to Sunfire Red
Metallic, but not quite. The bodywork was expertly refinished and the body
was given a thorough block sanding in preparation for the unique finish.
With the clean, unadorned lines of the first GTO, there's really no place
for shoddy workmanship to hide, and it's immediately obvious that this car
is as straight as they come. The crease along the lower body remains sharp,
gaps are very good throughout, and the paint finish has a subtle glow that
has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated. Of course, the chrome was
also refinished, the stainless was polished, and any glass that wasn't up
to snuff was replaced with new pieces.
Although there are probably 50% more Tri-Power GTOs in existence today than
were ever built by the factory, this one is, indeed, a real Tri-Power car,
according to the window sticker and build sheets acquired from PHS. When
the car was restored several years ago, it was detailed for show and still
shows nicely, with only minor signs of use. The Pontiac Turquoise finish on
the block and heads remains bright, the carburetors and linkage all work
correctly, and it wears a trio of miniature chrome air cleaners just as it
did when it was new. An aftermarket A/C system was apparently installed
sometime in the car's past, and it has been retained, rebuilt, and now
carries modern R134a refrigerant. It also offers optional power steering,
however power brakes were not specified on this high-option car for some
reason. It runs beautifully, fires up easily, and thanks to a newer dual Exhaust system with Flowmasters and
proper turn-downs, it sounds downright ferocious.
This is also a factory M20 4-speed car, and offers a 3.23 gear set and
Saf-T-Track limited slip as well. The chassis was properly finished at the
time of the restoration, and like the engine bay shows lights signs of use.
The floors are solid, the frame shows no indications of previous damage,
and it appears that there are new shocks at all four corners. Redline tires
are a period-perfect touch, and the original full wheel covers with
simulated knock-off centers have been retained, giving the car an
appropriately authentic look.
The cowl tag suggests that this car originally had a red interior, but
after seeing how gorgeous the white buckets look inside the lovely red
coupe, nobody will complain. The buckets have been reupholstered using
correct materials and patterns and obviously everything is new, including
the door panels, dash pad, headliner, and even things like the sunvisors. A
full-length console offers an accessory tachometer located down low, just
below the A/C. Also note that this car carries factory power windows, an AM
radio with deck-mounted power antenna, and a custom sports steering wheel
that has been color-matched to the interior. The fully finished trunk
offers a correct trunk mat and matching spare tire cover for a factory
There can't be many first-year GTOs more unique than this. From the custom
color to the long list of options, it's a great car with a fascinating
pedigree. The restoration was exceptionally well done, and the car has been
driven only sparingly since it was completed, so it still looks great. If
you've always wanted an early GTO, this is the one to own. Call today!
