Hello All,

Just got my 64 Post Coupe,Tripower, 4 spd & new to the forum. She's a driver and the first things on the list: seat belts, wood wheel, splitters, or standard tail pipe extensions ,& a little lift in the rear.

Seat belts - planning on basic aftermarket lap belts so the grandkids can ride. Any ones stand out as good or to stay away from?

Wood steering wheel - my standard wheel has major plastic missing & apparently no one makes the correct 4 spoke wood wheel for a 64? Any recommendations on a next best thing wood look wheel?

Exhaust- she has 2.5" exhaust pipes extending straight out past the rear bumper so I either want to put the standard extensions that I think angle to the corners a bit, or install splitters. The splitters avalable for 2.5" pipes look to have rounded instead of angle cut tips. Has anyone used these & satisfied with the look?

Rear lift - need just a little, drag bags or air schocks? Is one an easier install or more durable?

Thanks for sharing all your GTO knowledge!

the optional "wood wheel " for your car is worth its weight in gold. id have yours repaired if possible or get an original wheel whatever style as long as its stock. aftermarket style wheels ruin the look of the dash. thats just me.

First - Thanks for the input, Second - Sorry this was a duplicate post. Didn't think the first one went through. Third - working on how to post pics. Fourth - tail lenses are ok - bumpers need rechrome though. Thanks again.

Welcome to the forum, very nice car. Drag bags and gas shocks are the way to go, bags are a cinch to install, set the airlines separate so you can adjust them independently.

Very nice...:D

A reputable exhaust shop that does custom work would be able to form new ends and weld them on to have factory style turn downs just ahead of the bumper.

Grant has a few nice wood wheels to replace the broken plastic one. You'll need the adapter too, so plan on at least $200 by the time your done, OR attend local swap meets over the summer and see if something comes up for much less.
