1967 Firebird

Posted in Firebird, Pontiac | No Comments »

Picked up for $2000

A lucky car guy picked up this '67 Firebird for $2,000 recently at auction. It's got rust in the usual places, but overall pretty solid. The frame rails and trunk are in particularly good shape considering how long it's been sitting out in the South. Read the rest of this entry »

1968 Firebird Convertible

400 cid Pontiac project car

This Firebird closed with zero bids on eBay recently. Probably because the seller had his reserve set at a ridiculous $15,000. Yes it's a convertible Firebird and a desirable year at that, but there's still a ton of work to do on this car. Read the rest of this entry »

1965-gto-31965 Pontiac GTO Coupe

This is THE original muscle car; a 1964 GTO. This was the first year for GM's A body as well as the legendary GTO. This example has a bit of rust, but really appears quite solid. At least it hasn't been sitting in a field for 20 years. It may have been forgotten and neglected, but it doesn't have it's tires in the grave just yet.

Rare 400 RAM-AIR Firebird project car

Just looking at the photos you can feel the brutal desert heat that this Arizona Firebird has been baking in for the last decade or two. Although not rusted away (thanks to it's dry climate) this Firebird will need all new floors and trunk at a minimum. Seems as though the doors, front fenders, rear quarter panels and cab support members are still in decent shape. Read the rest of this entry »

1966 GTO – Rust Bucket

Posted in GTO, Pontiac | No Comments »

1966-gto-rusted1966 Pontiac GTO 389

From the front this '66 GTO doesn't look like a bad restoration candidate. But then walk around to the drivers rear and whoooaaa! Where's the rear quarter panel? Start looking a little closer and you'll see this car is just waiting to fall apart. The trunk and floor pans are total swiss cheese. And that surface rust covering every body panel might come off with media blasting, but would probably leave enough pits to require a whole new skin of bondo. Read the rest of this entry »

1967 Pontiac GTO – Barn Find

1965 GTO for sale1967 GTO in a barn

Thanks for Charlie for submitting this project of his. Per his email it was bought in 1980 to restore, but sat in a pole barn with dirt floor until 05-10-2011. He hasn't decided what to do with it yet. The engine is not frozen, but frame is shot. As you can see from the first shot it's sagging almost in half.

Good luck on the restoration Charlie or on finding it a good home if you decide to sell it! Read the rest of this entry »

This would be an excellent restoration project if the guy could ever be convinced to part with her. But apparently several attempts have been made, but he's not biting. It's supposedly been verified by PHS as a true GTO. Read the rest of this entry »

1969 Pontiac Firebird

Not a whole lot of information to go by on this Firebird. According to the owner it's a factory Orange car with a white interior. But Orange wasn't a factory color, so it looks like Matador Red (paint code 52) or maybe Burgundy (code 67) but it's hard to tell with so many years of the sun beating down on it. The motor is gone, but it still has the factory 3 speed transmission. You just have to pull it out of the trunk!

From the photos it seems the owner has a few more decent classic cars rusting away in his collection. It's really a shame when vintage and muscle cars like this just get abandoned out in a field and the owner won't part with them. They always say they're going to restore them, but year after year there they still sit.

1966-gto-tri-power01966 Pontiac GTO Tri-Power

It's hard to beat a factory Tr-Power GTO for wow factor. Plus it's got a 4 speed transmission, 3.55 posi rear and power steering. This one looks like a decent candidate for a full restoration. Sure it has plenty of surface rust, but maybe not much structural cancer. Read the rest of this entry »

1965-gto-31965 Pontiac GTO

This would be a sweet little project Goat. It's a 1965 GTO and has obviously been sitting, but really looks worse then it is. The rust is there and would need to be dealt with, but if the price was right it could be worth dealing with the cancer.
