The beloved GTO is a direct result of what happens when a renegade car division that's ran by busted-knuckle gearheads defies corporate culture, 'borrows' Ferrari's most coveted name and stages an octane-fueled war against crosstown rivals. It offered buyers the very real opportunity to walk in to a Pontiac showroom and, with the flip of a checkbook, purchase a one-way ticket to hot style and big performance. Today, classics like this cool resto-mod, featuring a massaged big block, a tough Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed and head-turning aesthetics, are perfect cruisers for enthusiasts who want to prowl the show field and burn up the streets. And, if you missed out 40 years ago, it's your well-deserved chance to walk in to our showroom, sign a few papers and relive the glory of the muscle car era!
Polished and ready to roll thanks to a body-off, rotisserie restoration that was completed in 2013, this coupe wears a solid profile that was stripped, patched, fitted with a fresh passenger's quarter and bolted to a brand new front-clip that's finished with a Tamraz's fiberglass nose. Naturally, that clean fuselage is coated in bright Orbit Orange 2-stage and dressed in a full array of Judge war paint. At the front of that pigment, a prominent grille centers a legendary “G T O” script between clean parking lamps, stainless-trimmed headlights and a tasteful chin spoiler. Behind that grille, an appropriately labeled Ram Air Hood fronts fresh glass, which is cased in polished drip rails and polished stainless frames. Beneath that greenhouse, color-keyed mirrors reflect traditional door handles. And at the back of the car, an Orbit Orange bumper hangs stainless-trimmed taillights above polished exhaust tips.
Pop the hood and you'll find a balanced and fully rebuilt 455 that utilizes a .030 overbore to create roughly 475 horsepower. At the top of that Turquoise mill, a K&N X-Stream air cleaner funnels wind in to a Holley 750 double pumper, which rides an aluminum Edelbrock intake. That air/fuel mixture floods ported 96 heads, which hang hardened valve seats over forged rods, forged pistons and a hydraulic, flat-tappet cam. That assembly gets sparked by a modern MSD distributor, which sequences fire between an MSD Blaster 2 coil and loomed Taylor Spiro Pro plug wires. Coated Doug's headers make quick work of spent gases. At the front of those tubes, a billet March accessory drive spins a rebuilt alternator and spry power steering. Cooling comes courtesy of a beefy Griffin radiator, which fronts a duo of SPAL puller fans. And items like Summit fuel lines, a billet thermostat housing, stylish valve covers and polished breathers mix great looks with great performance!
When the engine jumps to life, it twists torque through a tweaked Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed, which spins power to a dressed 12-bolt pumpkin that's built with smooth, 3.31 gears. That drivetrain pushes a fully restored chassis that was bolted together with polyurethane bushings, Detroit Speed lowering springs and Classic Performance Products drop spindles. Turns come courtesy of an AGR quick-ratio steering box. A CPP brake booster jolts four CPP calipers, which squeeze a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors. There's a 2.5-inch, Mandrel-bent exhaust system that growls through an H-shaped crossover and Flowmaster 40 Series mufflers. And at the corners of the car's over-restored floors, stylish Rushforth Night Trains lap 255/45ZR18 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs in front of 295/45ZR18 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs.
Between the doors, things are clean and traditional thanks to a full kit from Legendary Auto Interiors. Firm Rally seats frame a dressed console, which is centered on a factory shifter. A familiar dash hangs a vintage Delco radio and snazzy Auto Meter telemetry behind a striking combination of engine-turned and carbon fiber surfacing. A bit of modern convenience takes the form of power-operated windows. And the driver guides a monochromatic Formula Steering Wheel around a color-keyed, tilting column.

What Customers Are Saying
After hearing good things about the people at RK Motors, I contacted them regarding consignment of my street rod. I found Tony Klein to be a pleasure to work with. He was very professional and forthcoming in our communications. He evaluated my vehicle and made suggestions of enhancements which would help ensure the desired result would be achieved in the marketing of the vehicle. We agreed on an acceptable sale price. Following the completion of the recommended items, I brought the vehicle to RK for consignment. After a thorough inspection and correction of some minor issues at what I considered a fair price, the vehicle was offered for sale. It sold quickly with me receiving the agreed value. I would have to repeat the recommendation that I received. RK Motors does what they say they will do, and obtains for the seller a fair and agreed value. What more could you ask for?Doug C.
