'67 Restoration

I've tried over and over using different sources to shrink and resize photos so I could post them with just NO luck. My good friend Bill recently finished completion on his '67 GTO hardtop that he bought in 1977 while a junior in High School It has sat since 1991, and with me prodding him constantly (and offering to drain the old fluids to get the project moving) he got it done. It took about 3 years, but as you can see, a typical zero rust Calif. car. He went from turqoise interior to a parchment interior, and an auto to an m22 4 speed, but it's all correct, oem stuff that he's stockpiled for over 30 years. The interior is Legendary, and he did it all, including the headliner. The other pics are of my goats, the '65's protecto plate, etc. My '67 convertible is currently down at Bill's in the Black Widow Garage (only smashed one so far....there will be lots more when it warms up) with the engine and trans out for a makeover. I will post more photos of the process on my new,exciting photobucket site!!! I am replacing the rear main, clearance checking the water pump, and resealing the whole engine. I rebuilt a TH400, and that's going in with a GM L-88 spec Hi-stall converter. I hope this link works....

Nice. Your buddies is the white one? Sweet ride. The convert looks pretty tore apart, but will be nice when it's done. Congrats on photobucket.

Totally jealous. For me. The plan is to paint the 66 white with some black accents. I like how clean it looks white in your friends pics.

Jet, Gary's convert has been sitting on those 55 gallon drums since 1980. Last month, it was hauled down to the LA area. It has been blasted, and is now in prime at a body shop. It's getting a full on resto. Believe it or not, it has solid floors and all original panels. It looks TERRIBLE, but it's "all there". The chassis was restored and put in a barn in 1980. It's an HO 360 horse 4 speed car with 3.55 gears and rally gauges. Burgundy with black gut. It should be on the road in a year or two. No, my car was a tired old convert when I bought it in '83. I rebuilt the carb and front end and drove it about 60,000 miles as a commuter, then built the engine in '88. I painted it burgundy and redid the interior in '93, and that's how it is today. It's no show car, just a nice "driver" GTO. It's never been "out of service" or restored. Just repaired. I'll post some pics of the rear main seal....unbelievable. Bill's GTO is the white '67 that he bought for $1200 in 1977. It was and is his "first car" . It's all stock and correct, with the exception of the '66 tripower on it. With the 3.55 gears and 4 speed, it screams!!
