1970 Pontiac GTO STK 89-ATL.mpg
WOW is the under-statement of the year when trying to describe this
gorgeous 455 H.O. 4 speed 1970 Pontiac GTO. Professional frame-off
restoration brought this ride back to absolute original condition. This
baby is ready for your next show, cruise-in, or just a Sunday afternoon
This original GTO is one of a total of 7088 GTO's built with 455ci engines,
which includes all years or production, 1970-74. The 1970 year production
is the only high compression, 10.25:1, 455's made for the GTO. Producing
370hp, ground pounding 500ft-lbs of torque, these high output GTOs were and
still are an absolute blast to drive. Equipped as you could have ordered
one, besides the beast of an engine, this GTO boasts a Rochester Quadrajet
carburetor, 4-speed M-21 (close ratio) transmission, dual Exhaust, 12 bolt 3.31:1 Saf-T-Trac rear end,
power steering, power front disc brakes with rear drum brakes, deluxe AM
pushbutton radio and rear window fan defrost system. Among other options
such as two-speed windshield wiper/washer, front bucket seats with
shoulder/seat belts, rear seat belts, console, clock, Rallye gauge cluster,
courtesy lights, remote driver's mirror and even an electric trunk release.
Wrapping your fingers around the factory wood-sport steering wheel and
looking through the front windshield at the hood mounted tach as you push
the accelerator, you'll be wishing the road never ends. 15x7 Rallye II
wheels wrapped in radial tires with the original 14x6 wheels available keep
you planted to the road. The great Exhaust note is achieved through the custom 2
1/2" tubes with an x-crossover connection and 2-chamber Flowmaster mufflers
with resonators. The temp gauge closes out the modifications done to the
car yet the original in-dash temp gauge system is still good. This factory
Polar White GTO with the optional '69 Judge stripes add to the definite GTO
muscle look. This girl is ready to go and we think your garage is begging
for her to call your place home.

We removed the hood, mounted a camera looking down on the air horn, and
took it for a spin, running wide open on an uphill grade. See how the
secondary air valve responds to rpm drop at each upshift of the THM. Also
included is a smoking burnout.

How to de-bog your Quadrajet part 1
Sorry guys, I got the videos a bit out of order.
The Rochester Quadrajet has gotten a bad rap over the years, often called a
Quadrabog or Quadrajunk.
In fact, this is a great multipurpose carbureter once you understand how
they work and what not to do to them.
In this clip I introduce you to the Quadrajet and begin explaining the
theory of operation of these units.

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!
How to adjust Quadrajet/Dualjet fast idle
Quadrajet/Dualjet Rochesters have a fast idle adjustment screw that is
separate from the base idle screw.
Here's how to locate it.
Note: Ever since Charter "fixed" my internet and cable after the lightning
strike, it hasn't worked right. Go figure. So, if you see this posted then
I was finally successful in getting a video uploaded.
A 79 chevy C-30 dually pickup w/ 454 V8
Here is a friend of ours chevy pickup. I've been told it's a 79. It has a
454 big block V8, a turbo 400 3 speed
direct automatic, and dual Exhaust
which i don't know who makes the mufflers. We changed the carburetor to a
edelbrock 4 barrel in place of the quadrapuke (quadrajet) carburetor.
Quadrajets are good carbs but when they go bad, they're bad. The quadrajet
on this was really bad, the throttle bushings were worn on it and it when
the secondaries opens up i'm assuming it just dumps fuel like crazy because
when we floored the gas it was like pop pop braaaaaap. With the old carb on
it used a quarter tank of gas to drive 10 or 15 miles.
