In the '60s and early '70s "muscle cars" ruled the streets and the strip. These cars were distinctly American. They were fast, loud and went far beyond a basic means of transportation. One nameplate started it all and is widely considered the father of the muscle car. The legendary Pontiac GTO kicked off the wild muscle car market with a roar and made Detroit the world center for affordable high-performance cars. This jaw dropping 1970 Pontiac GTO convertible has been frame-off restored to an uncompromised level of detail and accuracy. The restoration utilized every period correct GTO component available, down to the nuts and bolts. During the restoration, great care was taken to ensure that the car was built back up exactly the way Pontiac would have produced it. The quality of the restoration is nearly flawless inside, outside, and even underneath, with no detail overlooked. In 1970 there were a mere 1,919 GTOs produced with the legendary L75 455 cubic-inch "High-Output" and M21 manual transmission combinations, however only 8% (158) were convertibles and most certainly considerably less in this stunning color mixture of Burgundy over Black. To handle the monstrous 500 foot/pounds of torque the 455 produces the 1970 GTO is equipped with the heavy-duty Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission as well as a 3.25"-diameter steel drive shaft. Drivetrain strengthening did not end with the transmission and driveshaft when it came to the 455 HO GTOs. This engine option got special treatment once again with the installation of a Canadian-built C-type 12-bolt rear with am 8.875 inch-diameter ring gear. Known as the McKinnon axle, it was considered stronger and better able to handle the 455's mountainous torque. Here is your chance to own one of the most coveted muscle cars ever. This GTO will be a corner-stone addition to any car collection and will undoubtedly garner all the attention at car shows and cruise-ins, or just while out on the town!
