I put new floor pans and new trunk pan in it and nos tail panel that a friend of mine had that sold me the car. I also bought three 68 GTO's just to get the motor and 4-speed and 3.55 rear off of them. still struggling to finish putting the car back together. Hopefully soon I will be done. Wish me luck."

CLICK-> Yellow 1967 GTO hardtop owned by Arthur Kear from Ulysses, Pennsylvania. Arthur tells us this story, "In the early 90's this car drove past my house every day as it was being used as a daily driver by a local dirt track racer. The car was in very bad shape and was in need of restoration. I tried to buy it from the owner but he would not sell. In 1992 I was doing some remodeling on the local body shop owner's house and he had this car all torn apart. I asked abut it and he told me it was for sale. I bought it with the agreement that he would finish restoring the car for me."
CLICK-> This is what the car looked like when Arthur bought it. Still torn apart.
CLICK-> The frame of Arthur's 1967 GTO was restored on a rotisserie. This looks like a professionally built one.
CLICK-> New rear quarter panels are installed, as well as the floorpans and trunk floor.
CLICK-> Arthur comments, "The new quarters are installed and the yellow paint is starting to be applied. I had a bright yellow muscle car (not a GTO. No need to mention what it was) in High School during the 70's. I always wanted another car that color. I had no idea I was going to go back as close to original as possible when I chose the color. Originally the car was Regimental Red - Oh well I still love this yellow."
CLICK-> All the new floor panels installed and being painted black while on the rotisserie.
CLICK-> The body is back on the frame, the original 400 HO and 4-speed Muncie M20 installed, and its starting to look like a car again.
CLICK-> Completed yellow 1967 GTO hartop, interior view. Arthur adds, "It was an eight year restoration in 2000 (1992-2000). The car was only worked on when the shop was not busy so it took a really long time. Here is a nice picture of the completed interior. It's got new seat covers, headliner, dash, AM radio, carpet, and weatherstriping - all new."
