Bobby Chestnut had this Cardinal Red 1971 GTO up for sale in the Fall of 2006. He has more pictures of it on http://www.corvetteforsale.com/1971.htm Bobby tells us more, "It has been in storage for over 10 years. Needs detail, body work, and paint. 95% 0RIGINAL GTO Convertible. #75 Cardinal Red with #264 Sienna Interior and White Power Top. Perhaps a 1 of 1 combo, (does anyone else know of one this combo?) Only 662 made total of these GTO's. This car is so original. 400 cubic inch-300 horse YS original engine with correct carb #7041264 and #481733 intake, stock factory exhaust headers, 12 bolt rearend and M40 automatic tranny. Options include automatic, air
conditioning, power steering and power brakes, console, cruise control, door edge guards, sway bar, dual mirrors, underhood lamp, wheel well moldings, rear seat speaker, custom seat belts, 8-track tape player, and Rally II wheels. EVERYTHING works including the 8-track and cruise! The valve covers have never been off on the motor and everything is stock. It is as original as it was when it rolled off the showroom. It has set for over 10 years in storage and was only started and driven around the block a couple times a year. It was hit in the front passenger fender and had a bumper and right front headlight assembly replaced right before it was stored but the parts replaced were not even repainted. IT DOES NEED SOME BODY WORK AND NEEDS TO BE REPAINTED, the seat backs and lower front kick panels need re-dyed, small 1/4 inch tear front passenger seat, engine, trunk, interior, and underneath cleaned and detailed, and it will be a very nice original GTO. This GTO spent all it's life in Southern states and mostly in Tulsa, Oklahoma area. This GTO was driven 110 miles to my garage with no problems! It has decent Wingfoot Tires that have been on it a few years and newer battery. Will be for sale at 812-309-8388 for questions. firstname.lastname@example.org"
UPDATE: 11-10-06 "It still has the ORIGINAL Goodyear F70-14 Polyglass spare tire and
wheel, jack and stand, convertible boot, decals on trunk lid-radiator-air cleaner, all seatbelts, T-3 headlight, carb, intake, exhaust manifolds, etc. I have the names of all the 3 owners from when this GTO was originally bought at Premier Pontiac in Tulsa Oklahoma. The GTO was built on 12-04-70. The 1st owner purchased the GTO in 1971 and we have his loan papers and registrations from the till 1977 when he sold the car. The second owner was a woman in Tulsa who owned in until 1979 when it was sold to the owner I got the GTO from. I have service records on it for many years showing repairs. One of them is dated June of 1978 and shows
milage at 62,559. So it has only had a little over 20,000 in 25 years. The third owner bought the car in 1979 and brought it to Louisville, Ky in 1982. It had the accident in 1985 and had the new bumper and headlight housing installed and never painted since. The passenger front fender does have some bondo in it as you can see in the pictures."

This interior color is known as Sienna. You could order a GTO with two other tan/brownish interiors. One was Saddle which was a more brown in color (less red than the Sienna). The other was Sandalwood, which was a light tan. CLICK->

Paul Sanders bought this black 1971 GT-37 from its original owner back in 1998. Paul tells us more, "It has 68,000 miles and has the rare 400/4bbl engine. The engine runs great. It had a barn loft fall in on it and dented the roof, broke the windshield, and smashed the drivers side fender. The roof is now repaired and new windshield. I have since found NOS fenders, front and rear valances, and exhaust tips. This car is similar to John Sawruk's car. We will take the car off the frame when last kid is through college in about eight years." CLICK->
Blue 1971 LeMans hardtop owned by Stephany from California. Stephany had this to say, "A GTO at heart, this 71 LeMans drives like a dream. It still has the original 350 and 3-speed automatic. The only thing rebuilt was the interior and exterior (by a previous owner) and suspension. Unfortunately due to the previous owner, there are some dings and scratches as well as a misaligned bumper, but that doesn't stop it from getting PLENTY of looks! Even with the 8.5 mpg, I couldn't be happier with my first car." CLICK->
