Since I don't know how to make a sticky for my 64 GTO project, I will put updates here and transfer them to a build thred later on.
Almost rust free 64 GTO from Tucson, Arizona. Plates are from 1976. I paid $7,000 for it. It is real GTO from what I can tell it was an automatic with factory a/c, Grenadier Red, Red interior.
I bought a supposedly rebuild M-20 four speed for it. $700. I have a 64 389 and a tri power manifold for it. I have a pair of "716" heads.
The motor is taken down and will be sent to machine shop to be built pretty much stock, although I want it to be able to run on pump gas.
Eventually it will have Rally wheels and 245-60-15s, but I bought some 14 inch rubber to save time and money.
So far, all I've done is clean (40 years of desert dirt) dream, and come up with a game plan.
My plan: rebuild everything pretty much stock for now. The entire interior will need to be replaced. I plan to do most of the work myself. Plan is to start with seats, doors, and weatherstripping.
I wanted to get it operational first. But my friends say it needs to come all the way apart have the bodywork and paint done first.
Stay tuned. I'm $8,000 in and just getting started. Love the factory a/c and the rust free floor and trunk.
Any advice is welcome! If any moderator could transfer this to Wickedgoats 64 GTO build" that would be great
