GM Electric Blue
Bought her in December 2016 from a guy who did a 4+ year garage restore from the bones-up. Did a great job on it, now the wife and I are doing a little bit here and there to make Genie our perfect cruiser.
1967 Pontiac GTO (GM Electric Blue)
Original engine was not with the car during the resto process. Skip built-up a '74 455 out of a Firebird and strapped a TH400 to the back of it. The engine is a balanced and blueprinted 455cid bored .030 over with Sealed Power pistons. It has a forged crank and two-piece rear main seal from BOP Engineering. New connecting rods with ARP bolts and GM balancer. Comp Cams 276 Roller camshaft/lifters and double roller chain and gears. The heads are 6X with mild porting that have been completely rebuilt with bronze guides and cc'ed at 92.6. This makes a compression ratio of 9.3 to 1. The motor runs well on premium pump gas at 92 octane. Comp Cams Magnum Steel Roller Tip Rockers (1.52 ratio) and High Energy pushrods. Edelbrock aluminum intake that has been gasket matched to the heads. Holley carburetor. Turbo 400 tranny w/ stall converter (2000 rpm). Hooker Super Comp ceramic coated headers and 2 ½” Flowmaster exhaust.
Parchment white, identical to the build sheet from PHS. Added the wooden wheel to go with the real wood veneer dash and console.
Stock, but with a new Electric Blue paint job.
Vintage repop stereo look from Antique Auto Radio, Inc...but with bluetooth and digital AM/FM guts. Mounted two 6X9s under the rear tray keeping the original material intact while removing the cardboard backing (an exercise in patience)
