Fire Coral Bronze 1974 GTO, engine view. Nice and clean. This is a balanced and blueprinted 455ci engine with 9.25:1 compression. This car originally came with a 350ci engine CLICK->

Dan added matching accent stripes to his Fire Coral Bronze 1974 GTO. CLICK->
The rear suspension was rebuilt with new leaf springs and urethane
bushings everywhere including the anti-sway bar. Additional
reinforcements include subframe connectors, traction bars and
urethane body-to-frame mounts. Hmm, wonder if the owner did all this paint work himself? The color of the jack stands does match the underside of the car! CLICK->

Here's a new shot. It's the headliner in this 1974 GTO. It's got a light in the center of it. CLICK->
Dark green 1974 GTO owned by Tom Corbin. Tom had this to say, "I got this car (Jan 2002) for $3000. It was restored and
drove for a year. The owner's friend died and he parked it. It sat for ten years. The only things I did to it was exhaust, back tires, front brakes, and of course, remove some rust. Love my new car." CLICK->
Dark green 1974 GTO, front end view. This web site has more pictures of 1974 GTO's on it than any other. The shaker scoops on the 1974 cars were a different twist. That is my favorite feature of the 1974 cars. I also like the horizontal tail lights which were reminiscent of the older models. I also used to drive a 1980 Pontiac Sunbird that had the attractive horizontal tail light treatment as well. CLICK->
Dark green 1974 GTO, engine view. You can see what a Shaker hood scoop looks like with the hood up. This car has power brakes, air conditioning, and all that good stuff like power steering. CLICK->
Coy Higginbotham from Elwood, Kansas is restoring this 1974 GTO. It's going to be red with a 6.6 liter T/A 400 engine. It has a factory 4-speed manual transmission, tach and console gauges. A red GTO powered by a Trans Am? You can bet it will Rock and Roll down the road. CLICK->
Left front view of Coy's project. The front bumper is yet to be seen. CLICK->
A little more red paint and a little more assembly and Coy will have it complete.
Here's a comment from a recent visitor...
Says Jace T Venable (fickstigure.@militarynow.com) - "I'm 25 and was born well after the GTO days but when Dazed and Confused came out I fell in love with the 1970 Judge. There's something really neat about older Detroit Muscle that will always be immortal. I'm scoping for a Goat and hope to add one to our collection."
