The 1970 Pontiac GTO we just had come in is well preserved that the tank build sheet was still there an in perfect condition. This “goat” was built at General Motors Fremont Assembly and sent to Sumner Pontiac Company in Des Moines, Iowa.
This owner of this second generation GTO got this car brand new for her 17th birthday. She drove it for a few years until she got her first corvette and she parked it for the last 28 years. This car is very original and we hope we can keep many of the original parts.
We have had the DynoJet for just shy of a year now and by the end of the year it will have seen a fair share of interesting makes and models. The DynoJet is great for much more than just finding out how much power or torque a car makes. You can analyze the fuel to air mixture, ignition condition, finding leaks, engine break-in, and even aero dynamic effects on gearing.
With new door panels, tires and fresh paint the Pontiac now looks as great as it runs. Chieftains were one of the first all new car designs to come to Pontiac after World War II and were built from in various styles from 1949 to 1958.
Now that the Pontiac is running and mechanically sorted we are stripping it down to be painted. The interior will be left mostly original as it is in remarkable shape but new door panels will replace the originals.
This Pontiac Trans Am came to us as a car that had hid a deer 30 years ago and then stored ever since. It has been a long rebuild but they could have never dreamed of a Trans Am like this back in 1971. Almost every part of the car has been vastly improved but the interior and exterior hide off the secret and maintain an original restored look.
The big box from Butler Performance had a big block in it. This engine is fitted with the FAST EZ-EFI fuel injection. The valve covers were restored and powder coated by us with a black texture and then polished.
