1971 GTO Parking Lot
Biggest GTO image collection anywhere!
... PICTURE SET CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE|
CLICK-> Castillian Bronze 1971 GTO hardtop, right rear view.
CLICK-> Robert McCallum from Regina Saskatchewan Canada writes, "My friend had this 1971 GT-37 parked by this slough on his farm for the past 20 years. It originally had a 400 with an M-21 4-speed. The drivetrain has been removed. I traded him an old Pll-400 computer(without monitor) for this car. The body is damn near in perfect shape (some surface rust & a bad passenger door) and the glass is 100%. He also has 69 GTO that he won't part with (in one of these pictures here as well)." I wonder why they hid this Starsky & Hutch lookalike in the tall grass?
CLICK-> It's a bit easier to see this 1971 GT-37 after Robert knocked down the tall grass a bit. The hood retainer pins are in, but no hood!
CLICK-> Rear view of Robert's find! It's a red 1971 GT-37 from a better vanished time!
CLICK-> There's a bench seat in this 1971 GT-37. I wonder how rusty the underside is? Just wait until you see this car restored...
CLICK-> Red 1971 GT-37 with a pretty big hole in the passenger door. I still haven't spotted that 69 GTO that is supposed to be pictured in this set somewhere. All you can see is the GT-37 pretending to be a Starsky & Hutch Ford Torino. Most can see right through the disguise!
CLICK-> Here's the other side of Robert's red 1971 GT-37. Starsky & Hutch probably would not mistake this car for theirs.
CLICK-> Take a look at this! Only one year later and look at Robert's 1971 GT-37. Robert tells us, "I finally finished the resto last week. I know there is a lot of things that aren't proper: hood, seats, rear valance, color of the wheels etc. But with the resources I had available and other considerations, this is what I have come up with. I like it and it's mine and thats what counts."
CLICK-> Orbit Orange 1971 GT-37 hardtop, left side view.
CLICK-> Orbit Orange 1971 GT-37 hardtop, right rear view.
CLICK-> Orbit Orange 1971 GT-37 hardtop, engine view.
CLICK-> Orbit Orange 1971 GT-37 hardtop, trunk view. Robert has done a lot of work on this car.
CLICK-> Orbit Orange 1971 GT-37 hardtop, interior view.
CLICK-> Robert added stripes to his Orbit Orange 1971 GT-37 hardtop.
CLICK-> This car has come a long way. Robert did some work under the hood too. Robert explains, "I added this new 355ci 375hp 400ft-lb SB Chevy engine. The car never had a power train when I dragged it out of that marsh, so I went with a cheaper form of power rather than trying to find a Poncho 400. Sorry to the purists.... NOT, this beast is a HELLUVA LOT OF FUN!"
