Check out the blacked-out headlight bezels, tinted windows, pre-'74 GTO emblems, and brand-new tires and rims.
|The car was repainted recently. Jerry notes it was black when he bought it, but the original color was Fire Coral Bronze. Looks like the car has front disc brakes?|

(in work here about May'03) by Mark. He waited patiently for 8 YEARS before the previous
owner would sell it! The rough body turns into a thing of beauty.

" THE 350 DID NOT IMPRESS ME SO I REPLACED IT WITH A 455 ALL REBUILT, # 12 RA III HEADS, REPLACED THE SAGINAW 4SP WITH A BORGWARNER SUPER T10 4SP WITH A CENTERFORCE CLUTCH, SUBFRAME CONNECTORS, 12 BOLT 3.73 GEAR, AND TRACTION DEVICES. USED A TORKER INTAKE SO THE SHAKER WOULD STILL WORK PROPERLY" Update 5-23-03: He's about ready to fire up the motor now. Updated photos on GTO page 8 !
|Coming in just under the wire, here are some photos of Keith Davis's pumped-up GTO in Sunstorm Yellow. He writes: This is my 1974 GTO...owned since 1987. It has a +.040 '74 400 with 68 #16 heads and a RAIV copy cam (Crane Fireball). I also have a Torker intake and Holley 750 vac.sec. carburetor to provide it with the right mixture. I also added a TH 400 trans. and a 3500 stall to get the power to the rear that has 4.10 gears. The car has run a best of 12.20 @ 109.30 mph and a 60' time of 1.68. I think this is the kind of performance this car should have come with instead of the emissions-laden measly 185 HP 350 it came with!|

A whole set of new photos sent by Bill Dunne of www.74gto.com Keep monitoring that site for a complete rebuild history of this car, pictured in its original state at left.
|One glance will tell you this is a thorough job! Bill reports that the car has since been re-assembled and is ready for paint. (April 03)|
|Beautiful contrast between old and new in the engine department|
(L) A photo that was begging for a caption...so we added one.
This is one of Butch York's '74 GTOs...more pics of this car are forthcoming.

The number of folks writing in who love this much-disparaged version of the GTO continues to grow. This continues to be the most heavily-visited part of the site as well.
