Pictures of my 1964 GTO barn find

As some of you know I joined this site a couple of weeks ago after I purchased my 1964 GTO barn find. I have some topics posted- general questions- to plate or not to plate--Mystery switches- blower manifold/radio delete plate wanted----We did not plan on buying at the time but at $800.00 I had to buy it on the spot. We did not have a camera so we bought a throw away and are still waiting to have those developed.

But I did take some digital pic's once we got it home. It did have some left front suspenion damage other than that it is is in great shape. After 25 plus years of storage with some work it started right up. Here are the pic's hope you enjoy, this is a dream come true for me..... Thanks for looking.....

WOW. That looks exactly like the GTO's my "group" and I used to buy for about $1500 back in 1979! At 1500.00, back then, they were good buys, and they were in about the same condition your car is in. I don't know where you are, (I see CA plates on the CAR), but in California,where I am, that '64 of yours would go for around 8 to 10,000 in the shape it's in right now. It truly is a time capsule. It has no more rust/wear than a 10-15 year old CA car....all due to its inside storage. Excellent buy. The BUMPERS alone are worth 800!!!!! You could restore it to factory specs or resto/rod it: you have so little capitol tied up you win no matter what. I vote for fairly stock!!!! Good luck, and keep us informed. We'll help all we can. Thanks for sharing!

Well after months of work we are close to to being on the road again. After straighting the frame and replacing EVERY front end part except the steering arm including a new steering box. I went with QA1 coilovers and poly/graphite bushings and a quicker steering ratio. My question to you guys is this : I have a alignment rack from my circle track days and I need some starting alignment spec's for this application. HELP anyone????

Camber: -1/4 to +3/4; Caster: -1.5 degrees; toe: 0 to 1/8". Preferred Camber is +1/4. Hope this helps.
