New Project, 1964 GTO

Hey gang, I picked up my new project car. It's a 1964 GTO. The car is complete minus the rear seat. This will be a fun car to save.

Thanks, It's not running yet. I'll be pulling it out to go through it anyway. Right now it's a 2 speed auto car.

Hey gang, small update for you. I've had some spare time and started working on the GTO. I've pulled the motor out and tore it down and found these wonderful orange colors everywhere. I'm guessing the intake valve was open in a few spots to let in mother nature over all the years it sat.











On a better note, The engine bay itself was surprisingly clean for a car of its age.



I'll keep you updated as I progress.

Hey guys, I haven't updated this in a while but I've been plugging away on the GTO in my spare time.

I pulled the front clip off so I could strip and paint the engine compartment.

I then got some epoxy on the inner fenders, core support and firewall. I also cleaned up the inside floor and got some paint on it.

I chose Eastwood's chop top silver for the color on the GTO. So far I've got the engine compartment and interior (dash and inside doors) completed.
