There are few real-deal 1970 Pontiac GTO convertibles out there - less than 3,800 were produced that year. So when you're looking at one that has an unbeatable color combo, and it also has a fire-breathing 400 V8 and four-on-the-floor... well then, you know the ultimate GTO collectable is up for grabs.
If you like Chevys, you call this paint Hugger Orange; but if you're a Pontiac person, you know this is Carousel Red. It's one of the most iconic colors from the GM palette, and it is exactly how you want a real-deal GTO to look. This standout color stands above the rest a bit more, too, thanks a professional application that makes this upgraded paint look butter-smooth. When you combine this with the super-straight body, you really get to appreciate the curves that make the second-gen GTOs a sought-after legend. But there's a lot more appeal to this one than just the paint and sheetmetal. It's a thoughtful total package. The cold-matched Endura front end looks great, and the headlight bezels shine light new. This bit of brightwork coordinates with other mirror-like pieces, including the rockers and form-hugging rear bumper. Plus, this GTO has a nice dark side. The custom black paint on the hood draws attention to the dual scoops, and it also coordinates with the GTO badging and new black folding roof for a great look against the bold paint.
If you like the way this looks with the roof in place, then with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal a full black interior. So you get the well-done color combo with the top up or down. There has been a solid investment in the interior, and it's all about giving you the classic muscle car experience. So this looks quite nice, right down to the details, like the GTO badging on the doors and the hallmark machine-turned dash panel. Even the classic AM radio works! And as much as you'll like the vintage look, you'll love that this has a true driver's machine feel. That means bucket seats up front, a center console in-between, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, and a full set of round gauges. Plus, that large tach goes particularly well with the Hurst shifter.
Under the hood is a 400 cubic-inch V8. This has the look of proper Pontiac power with the corporate turquoise block, but you can also see this ultra-tidy setup has a lot more going for it. It's a fully-built power package with a Demon four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Torker low-rise intake, Butler Performance Pontiac valve covers, and Edelbrock aluminum heads. It's got the right supporting pieces, too, like a Performance Distributors ignition system and a serpentine belt system with billet pulleys. This mighty motor fires up with gusto, and it makes a terrific rumble out for the X-pipe dual exhaust with Pypes mufflers. And you have full control over this power and its muscle car soundtrack thanks to the Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. There's also power steering, power front disc brakes, stronger boxed rear arms, and sway bars front & rear. It all makes for great all-around classic drop-top.
Something this special also comes with build receipts, maintenance records, and PHS (Pontiac Historic Service) documentation. This is the rare, strong, and outstanding GTO you've been waiting for. Don't let it slip away, call today!
