This Black 1974 GTO has 8,304 original miles it. Why? The story goes something like this. When the current owner purchased it in Arkansas in 2002, it had 576 miles on it. The guy that purchased it was told that the car was one of three that were specially built for and given to General Motors Vice Presidents at the time. This car had been put in storage, then sold twenty something years later.

Blue Raspberry Metallic 1974 GTO owned by Shawn Bingaman from Pennsylvania. Shawn tells us more, "I bought it 10 years ago, sold it 3 years ago, and bought it again last month! I found it setting behind a storage shed on a concrete pad. For the sum of $600, I got the car and several truck loads of parts. After a color blind friend got me the supposed green paint (you can see now it's closer to purple) it was painted. Terry of Terry's Auto upholstery stitched the back seat to match the Recaro look-a-likes robbed form an Escort GT. He also helped die all the interior panels gray." CLICK->
Shawn continues, "It had a 70 RA3 400/muncie 4-speed. Now it sets awaiting a 455 and auto. We will be racing it this year in the Outlaw Pontiac Drag Series. CLICK->
Shawn goes on to say, "It also has an aftermarket wing to give it that traditional JUDGE look. It has factory tach/console gauges, rear window defrost, and dealer added under-the-dash air conditioning. It currently has a 3.08 posi and Cragars."
