64 GTO project.

Well my wife surprised me . For my birthday she retained my past brothers 64 goat. He was in the process of fixing it up when he past away. It's important to me that I finish the quest that he started. He past away 16yrs ago. It's a long story as to why the car sat rotting, I'd rather not get into that.

I’ve been reviewing this site and was inspired with the restoration undertakings with some of these threads. Here’s a photo as it sits at a ranch rotting away. Recently the car is now in my garage and out of the elements. I plan on starting to work on it in about a month. So as I venture into this difficult but necessary process, I'll be looking to the GTO forum to answer lots of stupid questions and support as I go through the process.

Welcome....looks like you got your work cut out for you, anxious to watch your restoration...personally, I'm of the opinion you picked the best year for GTOs...but then, I might be biased!

Everything looks rust free to me if the windows are still in it but that car looks nicer than my 70 does. Good for you that it worked out and you were able to keep it in the family.

Thanks for the warm welcome all!! Unfortunately it's not rust free. So far I need to replace the rear floor pans, rear window channel and lower right side quarter panel. I'm not sure about the trunk pan. While it was at the ranch the wind blow open the trunk and over extended the trunk hinges, as a result the top edge of the trunk lid is binding. As a result I have to remove the rear seats and unbolt the trunk lid from inside the car. I cant wait as the trunk is full of parts. I plan on getting into it in a few weeks. I have to finish up a few other projects first.

So, the trunk is stuck in that position? Hose the hinges down daily with WD-40 or penetrating fluid and work it a little everyday, it should free up, don't want to hurt that trunk. If you feel bad about your project, go look at the sticky threads and look at the work a few guys have done to there cars, they will motivate you and make you happy your car is so clean!
