Montero Red 1965 GTO hardtop, rear end view. Not too bad from this view. CLICK->
The inside of John's Montero Red 1965 GTO was full of parts. It's still got the original radio. CLICK->
John took it home and started working on it. John comments, "The car has been sanded down to bare metal and primed. I used Por15 on the frame and installed new brakes and shocks. The seats are in the process of getting recovered with Metallic Red covers. I will be installing a 400 with a 66 Tri-power that I also bought locally." CLICK->
John has the Tri-Power carbs all ready to go. CLICK->
Here are the fresh seats. CLICK->
John sends us an update to his 1965 GTO hardtop restoration project. The Tiger Gold paint has been applied! I can make a pretty good guess where this car is parked. It is amazing how much stuff I can figure out from looking at a few photos. By the way, you can almost hear the phone ring in this body shop office if you put your ear nearer to your monitor and dial (410) 663-8195. CLICK->
The new Tiger Gold paint looks great. John will add a parchment interior. CLICK->
Left side view of John's progress. Hey, maybe we'll go to the sports bar next door. CLICK->
Tiger Gold 1965 GTO project car, left rear view. Ahh, here the car is at Fullerton Auto Body & Paint near for Fullerton Heights on Belair Road in Nottingham, Maryland. It's near the bright green building which is Midori Japanese and Chinese Restaurant. It is a former Taco Bell that gets good reviews for its great sushi and gets panned for its so-so atmosphere. I've been there never. CLICK->

John has attached a set of Redline tires mounted on Cragar wheels. CLICK->
After 4-1/2 years John has completed his project. The Tiger Gold 1965 GTO hardtop is ready to show. Here it is at an indoor car show in December 2007. CLICK->
Another shot of John's completed outstanding Tiger Gold 1965 GTO. He has a photo of the car with the car leaning on the car. At some shows, I've seen people do a mural of the car on the car. So if you take a photo of it, you have a car photo showing a car on a car. Redundant? Maybe. CLICK->
A peek inside. He has installed a set of Parchment seats and door panels, The dash and carpet is black. CLICK->

Here's a comment from a recent visitor...
Says Dan Foley (foley.@link2000.net) - "Although it brings tears to my eyes, I love to see the GOATS out to pasture. I guess it's just my love of salvage yards."
