1967 PONTIAC GTO FROM THE MOVIE "XXX"

WITH VIN DIESEL!
This amazing piece of movie memorabilia is from the private collection of Eddie Paul of EP Industries. One of the most famous builder of Hollywood movie cars. Eddie built all the cars for the movie "Grease," the original "Fast and the Furious," and "2 fast 2 Furious," "Streets of Fire," Sylvestor Stallone's Mercury in the movie "Cobra," plus many, many more! Eddie has built custom cars and bikes for over 100 movies! The Pontiacs in "XXX" were actually LeMans' with GTO taillights and badges. There were 12 customized for the movie, only 4 are known to have survived filming. This is by far the nicest one! The only one to have received a body-off build as it was what the studio calls a "picture car." This was the car used in all promo for the movie. TV ads, trailers, still shots, posters, etc... All had the original engines, or small block Chevys, this one has a crate 502 Chevrolet big block, mildly warmed over with a turbo 400 trans. 4 wheel Baer disc brakes with vented rotors. Currie rear end, Auto Meter gauges, new interior. The paint is House of Kolor Chameleon which at the time was $450 PER PINT! Hood scoop has red lighting on the sides. The only visual difference in the car from the movie, is the Eddie laser cut XXX in a custom grille he built. The car looks, runs and handles amazing! A rare chance to own a fully documented piece of automotive movie history, a perfect addition to the serious collector! Please email with any questions. Car is located in El Segundo, California.

Personally I don't care for it. I prefer the look of classic with no to little to no over the top resto modding. This includes Foose wheels on them. To me they don't look right on these.

This car was advertised heavily in 2012 for the convention.

Not the same car. I too saw the convertible at the GTOAA show here in Wichita. That was the "weapons" car with the rockets, flame thrower and the top that flew off so Vin could use the seat back/parachute. The back seat also flipped around to uncover guns. The one on eBay says it was a frame off resto with a 502 BBC. It might be a nice car without the stupid hood scoop....and cheby engine.
