This is an interesting one.
Based on the VIN you supplied, 242370B128623
2 = Pontiac
42 = GTO
37 = 2 door hardtop
0 = Year (70)
B = Baltimore (assembly Plant)
128623 = Production Number.
So, based solely on the VIN, it looks to be a GTO.
Based on the body tag: ST70 23537 PON 176898BDY TR 246 45 45 PNT 05C.
ST70 = Model Year
2 = Pontiac
35 = Tempest Custom
37 = 2 door hartop
PON = Assembly Plant (Pontiac Michigan)
176898BDY = Body Number
TR = Trim Combination Number
246 = Unknown Interior color
45 45 PNT = Paint Combination (upper/lower) in this case, Palisades Green
05C = Build date May, 3rd week
Conclusion: Something is amiss here.
Either the VIN is not right, or the body tag, or the body for that matter, may have been replaced.
Best bet would be to run the VIN through PHS and see what comes up. The fact that it shows two different assembly plants is intriquing.
This car has obviously been apart at some point in it's 37 year life.
Is the car indeed Palisades green? Or can you find evidence that is was once that color or a different color?
Keep me posted on how all this pans out. I love a good mystery!
