67 GTO barn find

I am not going to comment on what I think of the restoration, but I will ask, why do some 67 GTO's have an alternator bracket as this one, don't some have 2 slide type brackets?

Aftermarket carb and manifold so the brackets had to be changed.

Looks like it has an 11 bolt water pump making it a 69 or newer, painted valve covers were on later years as well. Probably a b-body block.

I watched parts of three different videos. There are so many examples of what NOT to do in there, it is ridiculous! I pity the person who ends up with that car when they have to undo the "restoration" work.

When the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.

So true. They didn't even take the windshield trim off when they filled that hole it the roof, you know it's going to leak before the bondoo falls out.

Typical puppymill build. I can't even see the video, as my 1st Gen I pad doesn't support the u tube video. What's the channel,mthe fellow that posted the video? Will look at it late late tonight.

All it will take is one pothole to undo the work.
