A nice specimen 1967 GTO

I purchased a 1967 GTO over the weekend. Montreaux Blue, Parchment interior, 400- 4bbl- his/hers -factory AC that works- Rallye ones very nice shape,,, I will try to post some pics.. I need some advice : I would like to add disc brakes...fronts at first, rears soon, the car is now 4 wheel drum with 14" Rallye 1 wheels (I don't know if they are "real" or repro)....What do I need and who's product should I buy??? As always, thanx for the responses.
Eric P.S. In the last pic, I am the old fat Dude, not the short hairy one!!!!

Eric,

I purchased my 4 wheel disc conversion package from Direct Fit Brakes.

Some things to consider when doing this conversion would be to change all bushings front and rear, upper and lower ball joints as well as the bearings and seals in the differential. You will have to pull the axles to remove the rear drum backing plates.

Any questions feel free to ask, Beautiful GTO!

Hey Eric!
The car looks great!
Don't know if you have a copy, but first on your list should be picking up the GTO Restoration Guide. Tons of info and useful diagrams.
As far as the disc brake conversion, another place to check out would be PST,
Performance Suspension Technology

I bought all my poly suspension stuff from them and they are a good company to work with.

Have a great time with is. Glad you found something to stir your soul!

Nice car Eric. I put on disc brakes from Stainless Steel Brake Company (SSBC). They have several options and were very helpful when I told them what I wanted to do as far as wheels. As mentioned earlier, you might as well replace anything in your front end that looks worn.

I opted for classic performance's kit though.

Very, very nice car. I was watching that one on EBay last week. It didn't sell - you must have really worked the seller over after the sale. Congrats!!!
