General: First time my GTO has been put up for sale in 32 years. Never raced - just TLC. Full-Frame on restoration just completed. Built in Freemont CA and purchased with 106K miles. Documented by Pontiac Historical Society, VIN 242379Z120811 (2=Pontiac Division, 42=GTO, 37=2 Door Hardtop, 9=Model Year, Z=Plant Location: Fremont CA, 120811=Sequence Number). This GTO was maintained/restored for long-term dependability and after three decades of ownership this classic is DIALED-IN. Runs strong and drives exceedingly well. All modifications, especially aftermarket items installed, were researched to ensure they exceeded factory specifications and added to the driving experience. Even though a sizeable investment was dedicated towards the appearance inside and out, it was not the top priority. A lot was invested to improve the mechanical strength, dependability and quality, as opposed tomany muscle car owners that focus on appearance, For example, instead of slapping on the functional hood hinges with some new paint, I opted to have them reconditioned by YearOne were larger pins were installed for smooth operation, springs were tested and sandblasted for around $350. This is one of hundreds of details that make this Goat stand out from the rest of the herd.
Body: The sheet metal is solid and 100% rust free with being kept in SOCAL. Freshly painted the original color of Liberty Blue with PPG base/clear coat during February 2018. The Judge style stripes and GTO emblems are painted - not vinyl stickers. Stripes added to match the graphite and aluminum colors in the wheels. Restoration included: Stripping to bare metal; Removing/reconditioning/painting the insides of the front fenders; Doors were removed and jams cleaned and painted; New Year One Endura rubber front bumper installed; Rockers were coated with a rubber guard to protect against chipping; New grills and moldings; New windshield and rear window glass; All glass (less windshield with a clear ceramic coat) tinted 35% ceramic coat that protects and keeps the interior cool. Gaps and fit are excellent, finish is impeccable. Undercarriage is very impressive and rust free, but could use a light cleaning.
Engine: Built by Butler Performance and includes: The strongest aftermarket Pontiac cast block IAII 505 c.i./8.2 liter (Must readhttp://www.allpontiac.com/standard.html);steel forged crank and rods; Kaufmann Racing Engineering D-port aluminum heads ported/polished; CompCams roller cam, push rods, lifters, rockers; Edelbrock Performer RPM intake; Holley 870 Street Avenger with vacuum secondaries; K&N air filter; Meziere HD electric water pump; ARP bolts. There are roughly 1K miles on engine since installed. Runs very clean - no hesitation - no fuel odor coming from exhaust. Has a minor oil drip from rear main like most Pontiacs.
Note: Dyno was documented and filmed at Butler Performance resulting in a conservative 492 h.p. and 603 ft. lbs. torque at flywheel. Engine built to deliver power throughout the entire RPM range, so low end torque and top end are excellent.
Exhaust: Doug's ceramic coated headers with titanium exhaust wrap; 3" aluminum coated exhaust pipes; Flowmaster mufflers. Very quiet freeway/cruising, but releases impressive performance and sound with acceleration.
Drive Train: 4 speed automatic 700R4 overdrive transmission and torque converter built by Oceanside Transmission; Shiftworks neutral safety switch/detent/indicator to maintain the stock appearance in the console; Chevrolet 12 bolt limited slip with new3:55Richmond gears.
