Vehicle Overview

1967 GTO Coupe model with a 73 455 with super duty crank and rods. Muncie M20 trans. with Hurst competition plus shifter . Currently set up with a 2.73 12 bolt for highway speeds without spinning the snot out of it on the interstates. Extra 12 bolt with 3.42 Eaton limited slip for wheels up at the track with street slicks. Edelbrock intake with a Holley Avenger 770. Pypes X pipe exhaust with custom fabbed mufflers for a sound of it's own Tail pipes tucked under for a clean look. This has been built with the late 60's , early 70's look. Instead of air shocks this sports a set of rear springs from a 74 Grandville with custom shock mounts. The lower control arms are boxed in with a heavy duty sway bar to keep body roll to a minimum even with the elevated stance. The upper control arms are adjustable to get the correct pinion angle and are attached to edelbrock antihop bars which put the upper control arms back to the correct geometry. It may not look like it but this thing hooks with street slicks. I destroyed 3 pontiac stock 8.2 rear ends before going to the twelve bolts which has held up so far. The Cragar SS wheels (purchased in 1972) are era correct. Wax and winter hibernation keeps the chrome on the wheels. Unfortunately it still attempts to stop with 4 wheel drum breaks which look good with the body color drums showing through the spokes. The car was restored in the 70's with tuck and roll interior with GTO stitched vertical in the middle of the rear back seat as well as 67 being stitched into the back of each bucket. The car will remain in this seventies look as it represents the era when I was a Street Outlaw before it was "Cool". Many a driver has seen the rear end of this GTO thru the quarter mile in the 70's.

Future Plans

As I've aged a vintage AC unit is definantely coming. I have the components to install front discs but haven't due to killing the background of the Cragar SS wheels on the front. Over drive would be nice but I'm not cutting up the tunnel to put a T 56 in it and it will never be an automatic as rowing the gears is what it was all about.
