1971 Pontiac GTO
REAL 455HO, SUPER SOLID, NUMBERS-MATCHING, QUEZAL GOLD, JUDGE STRIPES, GORGEOUS!
HIGHLIGHTS: Real deal numbers-matching GTO HO! 455 V8! Polycast “Honeycomb” wheels! One of 412 produced!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this GTO is clean, straight, and solid. Having been kept in a private collection for several years, it is no surprise that this GTO is as straight as it is. You won't believe how solid this Pontiac is! Even the black vinyl top is in great shape! But wait, there's more! In the trunk you'll find a fifth honeycomb wheel with restored jack components.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Said to have been repainted once, the gorgeous Quezal Gold paint really showcases the unique body styling of the 1971 GTO. The paint is slick and glossy, and truly looks fantastic. A classic 1970s Pontiac color, we can't think of a better choice! After this car was repainted, “The Judge” stripes were added for a little extra curb appeal.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is largely original, and believe it or not it has not been restored like the rest of the car. That's right, the interior is really this nice and original! With the exception of the added gauge cluster to help monitor engine oil pressure and temperature, it remains as it was originally. The black vinyl is in great shape, and a great match to the exterior color.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood you'll find the famous Pontiac 455V8, and what better engine choice to power a car like this! Believed to be the original numbers matching engine, it is fresh off a comprehensive build that included a roller cam, roller rockers, new crank, new pistons, and more, it is no surprise that this GTO runs like a bat out of hell. Hooked up to the numbers-matching, factory correct TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and a rebuilt rear end with 3.55 gears and Posi-Trac, this puppy can really put the power to the street. Additionally, other newer components include shocks, coils, brakes, steering components, gas tank, brake lines, and transmission lines.
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The unique color, polycast wheels, and of course the engine!
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Quezal Gold is a classic color, but it may not be everyone's cup of tea.
