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 surprises.
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!
1968 Pontiac GTO 400 V8 Hurst Shifted Original Muscle Car
This is an amazing three-owner, PHS documented, real 1968 GTO that is sure to make some collector proud!

70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown. I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why, I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.

132559 / 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria Custom
This Mandarin Orange ultra-custom '55 Crown Victoria has won trophies at the Grand National Roadster Show, the Blackie Gejeian Fresno Autorama, Carlisle All-Ford Nationals and impressed the likes Boyd Coddington, George Barris and John Force among others. Body modifications include a grille and front bumper from a '59 Thunderbird, pushbutton door openers from a '41 Lincoln and taillights from a '55 Mercury. Once all of that work was finished, round two consisted of front lights from a '55 Mercury station wagon, rear fender skirts from a '57 Mercury station wagon and Cadillac wheel covers. The big daddy 560 horsepower Ford Racing 460 cubic inch V8 looks right at home in the smoothed engine compartment. D-460 aluminum SCJ heads top the motor, getting their fill from a Blue Thunder dual quad manifold and a pair of Holley 600s with Doug's Headers and a Modine radiator rounding out the package. An A-arm front suspension houses Aldan Eagle coil overs at all four corners, a Morrison spindle set, Wilwood 11" disc brakes and a Flaming River rack. Out back, a Morrison four link set hangs a Hooper's Ford 9" with 3.50 gears, Moser 36 spline axles and another pair of Wilwood 11" rear disc brakes. The floors are as perfect as the topside, making a perfect backdrop to the custom 2.5" ceramic coated Exhaust. Inside, 1967 Thunderbird landau seats are done in the same leather as the rest of the cockpit and look great next to Nosse Brothers custom door panels. VDO classic series instruments are set in a customized '56 Ford dash and the Ididit steering column features a billet Budnik steering wheel which complements Nosse Brothers billet pedals. Built over a four year period at a cost of more than $250,000, this car is the fulfillment of a childhood dream. If you're a Ford fan, a custom fan or a 50s fan this car just has to make you smile.
