Real GTO? Check. Top goes down? Check. Great color combination? Check. If you've been wanting a GTO convertible, this classic ragtop delivers in a big way, yet is priced such that you can happily drive and enjoy it without a second thought. And quite honestly, life is pretty darned good from behind the wheel of a vintage GTO convertible. Code 250 is simply Dark Blue, but it looks simply awesome. From the Endura front bumper surrounding the twin Pontiac grilles, to the twin hood scoops, to the ultra-straight flanks, it's stylish and timeless. Quarters, doors, fenders, and the original twin-snorkel hood are in great condition, which is obvious from the sharp crease that runs down the flanks. The deck lid fits flush, the gaps around the hood and doors are even, and someone spent a ton of time fitting that nose, which is notorious for being out-of-shape. Simple GTO badges are right for the understated image Pontiac was trying to achieve, although the hood tach does send a pretty clear message about performance. And chrome was still in fashion, with a brightly plated rear bumper, bright rocker moldings, and shiny wheel well trim, all of which has been freshened during the restoration. There's an awful lot of new stuff inside, too, including door panels, carpets, and seat covers, which accurately replicate the originals. A matching blue steering wheel was probably tough to restore but looks fantastic today, and a matching dash pad ties it all together neatly. Pontiac used a lot of faux wood in the upmarket GTO, but it actually looks pretty good with the appliques on the dash and center console looking like the same stuff. A wood-handled shifter for the TH400 3-speed automatic underneath is another link to the European inspiration for the GTO. The gauges and original AM radio remain in the dash, but a modern AM/FM stereo with CD changer has been stashed out of sight in the trunk. There's also factory A/C, a rather rare find in a GTO ragtop. A new white power top has been installed, complete with correct glass rear window, and it powers down with the touch of a button. The engine is a YS casting 400 cubic inch V8, which is what this car would have sported originally. Under the correct dual snorkel air cleaner, there's a factory intake, stock 4-barrel carburetor, and even a correct alternator and water pump, so you know someone's done his homework. With Pontiac Turquoise paint on the block, it certainly looks authentic and drives extremely well. The A/C has been converted to R134a refrigerant, so it's easy and affordable to service, and a recent factory-style exhaust system fits and sounds right, offering original quad tips under the rear bumper. The undercarriage is clean and solid, and while not detailed for show, it does prove that buying a solid car is always a smart choice. Pontiac Rallye II wheels have been fitted with slightly oversized 225/70/14 BFG radials, but they look awesome on the sleek Poncho. With all the talk of investment-grade cars, it's refreshing to see a clean, unmodified GTO that's ready to drive, not collect dust in someone's portfolio. Call today!
