CLICK-> Red 1972 GTO hardtop in mid-restoration, right rear view.
CLICK-> Candy Apple Red 1972 GTO convertible with a white interior and a white top sent in by Al Tucker. Okay, it's really a GTO clone made from a LeMans.
CLICK-> Picture of Jim Mason's red 1972 LeMans Sport. It was sent to us by Scott Stack. Scott had this to say about Jim's car, "This is a pic of my buddy's also long gone 72 Lemans Sport. It had all of the GTO emblems added by a previous owner. When I met Jim Mason, we were both in high school, 1983, and he had just purchased the car. I had the dubious honor of telling him, politely, that his GTO, was a Lemans. It had a 350 2bbl carb, three speed manual tranny, non-posi rear, rally gauges (no tach?), Endura front, factory 8 track player, PS, PB, AC, and it was red with a brown interior. What the heck, the car looked good, and with a few upgrades over time (4bbl carb, 4 spd muncie, etc.) it ran with all but the fastest cars in St. Louis County."
CLICK-> Gold 1972 GTO hardtop owned by Kevin Kubiak. It has been Father/Son owned since its original purchase.

CLICK-> Red 1972 GTO wagon owned by Rich Kuhn. It started life as a LeMans wagon built in Framingham. Rich says that it was restored with all the GTO components in 1981. (small picture) Rich wrote in September of 2004 to give an update on this car. I have made no attempt to verify his story, but here it is...
"My 72 GTO Wagon was sold and delivered to Maui, Hawaii awhile ago. There it will live out it's days in the Hawaiian paradise. We found out it was built as a Le Mans in Orange from the factory. Papers show it was then delivered to PMD in Michigan where it was converted to a 455 H.O. and all GTO components. It was apparently driven by a Pontiac Exec for the year and then shipped to a dealer and sold. It was restored in the early 1980's by Dan Jensen and Scott Tienaman, and tuned by Tin Indian. (Why would they restore a Le Mans as a GTO in the early 80's, unless it was something special). Probably because it was driven as a Region Manager's car for promotion. According to a retired Framingham exec, there were 6 done. This was the Only orange one. In any case, it is now in Hawaii. The new owner is enjoying it quite a Bit."
CLICK-> Sad looking orange 1972 LeMans hardtop found for sale on the internet from Upton, Massachusetts. It has bucket seats, automatic console, A/C, power steering, power disk brakes, power windows, Holley 4-bbl, Accel super coil, GTO hood, fenders, and endura rubber nose. The owner had originally purchased this car for parts, but sold his other car before getting the parts home. The engine runs but the transmission no longer shifts.
