The high quality repaint of the original Montero Red is smooth and shiny and still looks recent. The chrome, glass and trim are all in beautiful shape as well. The car just looks amazing, especially in this rarely seen red over red combination. The interior was replaced at the time and still looks mint. All options, gauges and accessories are in working order.

The numbers matching 389 CI High Compression (10:75.1) V8 was rebuilt with new pistons, rings, bearings, camshaft and bored .30 over. The transmission is the stock Muncie M20 wide ratio 4-speed with the original shifter and moves up and down through all of the gears with ease. The rear-end is a 3:23 ratio. It has Hedman "Shorty" headers. Original cast iron exhaust manifolds are included.

This outstanding, investment grade PHS documented GTO is looking for it's next master.
