My 67 GTO Project

I picked the car up a few days ago and figure its time to share. It needs some work but not to bad of a start. The guy i picked this up from did a cheap paint job back in 04, never put the chrome back on and claims it was stolen. So now im on the hunt for all of it. I dont have a lot of plans for it yet other then finding and stopping all the rust i can before i take off for basic. Ill post more pics as i go.

Interior wise its got the ralley gauges, the seats have just been recovered, has new headliner and door pannels. Bad thing is the dash needs restored badly and the carpet is moldy so that comes out tomorrow oh and the idiot had a system in the car so he hacked up the speaker holes not sure if i can cover it with a stock speaker or if i should just replace them.

Nice car!

I actually saw a 67 sitting next to a house that was about 3 blocks from where I picked up an engine on Saturday. It had most of the front clip off and needed love but looked to be fairly solid. I so wanted to stop and ask about it but the wife was not interested in starting a SECOND project.

Good luck with her and keep us updated!

Looks great to me, too. The seats were done with the good quality covers, and look like factory, which is good. Very expensive to get the seats done. Door panels are cheap, and the dash is no sweat. You've done very well, IMO!!!!!
