1972 Pontiac GTO'72 Pontiac GTO, LS3 Powered Restomod
The 1972 GTO exemplifies the pinnacle of Pontiac styling for The Great One. Unfortunately, by then horsepower was down, even on the 455 H.O. The owner of this particular tiger remedied that by swapping out the original drivetrain in favor of a modern and heavily modified LS3 mill, making between 550-600hp. Mated to a 4L80E transmission, this thing runs and drives out stronger than any vintage Judge, heck with more power than the Supreme Court!
Custom high flow exhaust and modern performance wheels and tires round out the "go fast" package.
A close inspection of the body and interior and it is apparent that the attention went into the mechanicals in this build. This would be a great car to drive in the summer and work on in the offseason to really make it show worthy. Dash bezel and console customizations aside, the interior is original, showing signs of wear consistent with 40 years of use. Gauges and stereo system are recently installed custom units.
The paint is shiny, but body panel fit off, bumpers, trunk lid, fenders and hood could be refitted to line up better. There is evidence of quarter panel repair or replacement on the right side. There is also evidence of lifting under the vinyl roof.
If you want a car that "shows" as well as it "goes", then you have yourself a solid driver that you can enjoy during the summer and bring the interior and body up to snuff next winter. The price is right as it sits and there is plenty of potential here to work with.
