My GTO beginnings!

Hello Forum....I am new to this forum. I recently purchased a 1968 GTO convertible. I feel pretty lucky that I was able to get it. The caris in kinda rough shape....needs a lot of TLC.

Here is a picture or two...

Welcome! Looks like a great foundation and nothing is more fun than going topless.

Lot of info here on the forum in which ever way you decide to build the car. Put together a plan of attack, be patient, and don't expect to rebuild it on a shoestring budget and get discouraged - do it right and do it once.

Hey Jim....cool. Thanks. My intentions are definitely to get it done right. It is a long term project for me. Noreal rush. Slow and easy and correct.
I will definitely consult this forum often.

The car will retain its original verdoro green metallic color.

Welcome as well.....When I see a car like this, I often wonder when was that magical moment when it crossed the threshold from its original beauty to the condition its in....Realizing it doesn't happen at once, never the less, its a continuous downward spiral until it either goes to scrap or is saved by someone with the strength & desire to bring it back and restore its dignity....Remembering these cars when they were new... a 69 Verdoro Green Conv., perhaps with a parchment interior....Absolutely stunning......Keep the faith....

Just a QQ.....regarding front bushings......how do you know if you have oval or round bushings? I would like to buy a front bushing kit, but I dont know if the car has round or oval control arm bushings. (I have not seen the car with my own eyes yet...)
