My "frame off" is Done!

It's been in progress for 1.5 years but my frame off restoration of my '66 GTO IS done. I know I am a little biased but I think it turned out really nice. The fresh Marina Turquoise paint looks amazing. All new suspension, powder coated frame, freshly rebuilt original 389 tri power engine, all The shiny stuff rechromed or replaced, new redlines........ This is the car I wanted in high school.

1966 TriPower, 4 spd, PHS documented.

Been thinking about the Illinois show. Sounds like a good time.

Just looked at your photo gallery. Looks like you have been there and done that. Your car turned out great!

Hey, it was great to meet you at Good Guys, and yes, that is a beautiful car. So did you pin stripe it or leave it alone? Matt

Matt, Nice to meet you and talk cars. Still thinking about the pinstripe. A few more minor things to get done. Will be getting it "dyno'd" to dial in the carbs. Will be interesting to see how it "pulls" after the rebuild.
