Hello all,
Im new to the board but not new to GTO's. I currently have a 67 factory 400, 4speed, AC, power steering car that has zero rust but needs a full resto. I bought the car while on deployment to afghanistan and now im headed to korea for a year but as soon as i get back ill be doing a full frame off on it. I have the cars PHS documentation. Its a factory burgundy with red interior. I havent checked if its numbers matching or not. I got to it before someone was going to cut it up and turn it into a drag car. My father had one when i was a kid and ever since its been my dream car. This one will stay in the family.

Some of you may think its ridiculous but its just meant to go fast in the sand. This was all done by myself and a friend in the course of 3 weeks.

Ok well i went and checked out the car and its definitely not a numbers matching car. It has everything for a manual trans shifter and pedal assembly but has a th350. So with that being said im doing a Rest-o-mod with a LS3/6speed swap. Not sure what rear-end it has either, all i know is that its a 10-bolt cant see stamping anywhere. Im gonna do a 9" anyways so when i figure out what the old one actually is someone may want a rearend?
Current engine Block codes
Pass. side front of block near head and intake cant make out the first number its either a 6,C,0 followed by 315175 with YX below
Pass. side front of block towards the bottom 237109831
Heads 4X
Intake 525355
Not sure what its out of but i know its not a '67 maybe somone has alittle more insight

NICE '97!!!!

Chevy motor in a Toyota 4Runner?
Yea 500hp pushes 40 inch tires alot better than 170hp plus i cant get a asian v6 to lope like an american v8. I like making things better than the factory unless its worth alot more as factory. :cheers

It is finished but not mine, its a buddies. I was using his shop for my toyota build cause it wont fit in a regular garage. It used to be a drag car with a 700+ horse 572 but he restored it into a streetrod. Ill try to get some completed pictures for ya.

Can you take the Toyota to the Sand Box when ya' go?
Im goin the other way, to korea. As for the sand box, no way in hell even if it was an option. There are no driving laws over there. Its a free for all and anything brand new isnt anywhere close to nice after 2 months. Ill stick to my MRAP its got these awesome bumpers for motivating cars out of the way.

Well I'm back! and in the middle of nowhere Missouri. I almost immediately started tearing into the GTO and it is almost 100% stripped down to shell and frame. I do have some parts that i will not be using so please anyone, feel free to hit me up. I'll give most everything i wont use for free. Including the 400 that's in it.

GonOver, there's a guy on this forum who hasn't posted for a long time, but he's a great guy and he could probably use your engine....his 'handle' is Too Many Projects, and his name is Mitch. He's been bringing a '67 GTO back from the dead, and has been running into all sorts of setbacks along the way. A fresh part or two would probably be a huge help. I'll pm him in the mean time. It's been months since I've seen a post of his. Guys?
