1964 GTO hardtop owned by Arnie "The Farmer" Beswick races a 1968 GTO hardtop owned by Lee Stagni. This was our Picture Of the Week for 12/16/01. The flamed 1968 car has been the Picture Of the Week a couple of times. I questioned Lee on the car that at first glance appears to be a 1969 model year. I asked him how much of the car is 1968. Here is his response: The the body tag is 1968, for one :>) Actually, very little. here's the layout:
The front clip if fiberglass (note it has a '69 valance because there are no '68 ones commercially available) as is the hood, doors and trunk lid. rear quarters were replaced (and then stretched for tubbing), top is original. Inside, door panels, kick panels, and rear interior panels are all ORIGINAL from the old goat. Front and rear glass and molding are also original as is the rear bumper (rechromed). The headliner is new. Until last winter, we were running the STOCK chassis from the firewall-back (tube chassis front-end with rack and pinion and coil-overs. We recently gutted the entire chassis and now its 2x3 mild steel all the way back. In the rear, when we had the stock chassis, we installed modified upper/lower control arms, trick springs, air bags, and adjustable racing shocks. Now we have a 4-link. Mechanically there is (was) nothing left of the '68 car.
You should note that we ARE running a real Pontiac power plant. It
is a 455 bored/stroked to 474 with Edelbrock (ported) heads and a 1050
Dominator. It makes 685hp on the engine and we give it 250hp nitrous oxide shot directly off the transbrake!
