Found a GOAT in the junkyard!! :(

hey this isnt really a project post but i went to the junkyard (my second home lol) and on the way out spotted this tucked away in the back


at first i thought it was a lemans but i peeped at the vin tag and saw this


it appears to be a green exterior car with a column shift and split bench seat. the NJ climate had taken its toll on the car after 46 years and there was almost nothing left of it






almost everyting was rotted on the car and what lenses were left were smashed and the endura bumper was destroyed.


i got excited and checked and it didnt have ram air headers so i was a bit bummed but its sucks to see a real GTO sitting in a junkyard in that condition

That bench seat is a rare find and worth a few bucks to a person doing a correct restoration. Many cars that came with the bench were converted to buckets.

It also appears to be a 2 barrel engine. I could use the throttle cable bracket on the intake manifold and the thermostat housing...

Might want to check the rear axle, but I doubt it is a posi with the low hp engine.

rear bumper looks like it can be a good core as long as there isn't any rot through

The color alone makes that a rare find.
