Where do I start? First time offered in 55 years. A former 1968 & 1970 Winternationals Stock D Class contestant. 1964 Pontiac GTO, 389 Tri Power, 4 Speed, 17,920 POWER 4 SPEED 17920 ORIG MI, original miles. Rare Sunfire Red color (factory discontinued after 6 months due to lack of interest). Believed to be the lowest mileage Sunfire Red Tri Power 4 Speed in existence. It is also estimated that less than 5 Tri-Power 4 speeds were built in this color.
Here is the story. This car was originally factory ordered by Bob Weyrick to be used strictly for drag racing in Southern California. He took delivery in Portland, OR , to get around the California Smog issues. When he arrived to pick up his car, he asked where it was. They pointed to his car and said its right there. Bob said he didnt order that "Salmon" looking color. It turns out he had marked the wrong box on the order form. There were 3 different reds offered that year, Marimba Red, Grenadier Red and Sunfire Red. He decided to keep it and off to California he went. Bob settled in Lompoc, CA. and began drag racing THE OLD GOAT. Bob (hes passed now) said that 12,000 to 14,000 of the miles on the odometer are from being flat towed to the various drag strips around Southern California. There is tons of race history included with the car along with a large inventory of parts. More on that later. The car was raced in the mid to late 60s. Included are lots of time slips from local drag strips in the 1960s .Santa Maria Drag Strip, Riverside Raceway, Irwindale Dragstrip, Lyons Drag Strip and The Pomona Winternationals. Lots of other drag racing memorabilia, brochures from the 1968 & 1970 Winternationals in Pomona, CAwith his name and car listed in them. There is a hand written letter signed by Ed Pink, responding to Bobs inquiry about some engine work on the GTO. Original owners manual and warranty book with the protect o plate. The engine was immediately bored .059 over.just under the .060 allowed by the NHRA. The original M20 transmission is included..in pieces. It currently has a M22 and the required scatter shield. Posi-traction rear end with 4:11 gears. Original interior. No one has ever sat in the back seat except 2 kids, once, by the previous owner. Bob red-lighted at the start of the 1970 Winternationals and that was it for THE OLD GOAT. He was so frustrated, he quite drag racing and parked the car in his hanger where is sat for 21 years and he refused to sell it. He finally called the 2nd owner, and he bought it and owned it for 28 years. He was a body and paint guy in Lompoc and repainted the car to the original color. The paint job is show quality. Original spare, jack and jacking instructions on the trunk sticker is still there. Everything works! Included in the sale are spare cams, lifters, an aluminum flywheel, the original M & H drag slicks (still hold air and no checking on the sidewalls), the original bell housing, the original dual exhaust system minus mufflers, with cutouts welded in and a pair of unused tail pipes in mint condition. Also included are tons of 35MM slides and 8mm movies, original factory manual, Sell $87,000.00 Call 714-469-1023 for more pics look on Hemmings Motor News
