Here's a real-deal 1971 Pontiac GTO with a big 455 V8, the factory-correct distinctive color combo, a terrific vintage interior, and all the right paperwork. So if you're looking for a loaded muscle machine that stands out in all the best ways, read on...
This is a real-deal GTO, and it seems to capture the mood of its era perfectly. The Canyon Copper paint with a white vinyl roof is a great 1970s color combo that really has the look of premium. After all, this was the last gasp of the muscle car era. As insurance premiums were rising, muscle cars also became cars that needed to appeal to a more upscale clientele. And this one gets to tell that story well today thanks to a professional respray. This high-gloss style and clean sheet metal make for the kind of coupe that will get you invited to some nice car shows. And while premium, it's also a proper GTO package with the full color-matched front end, quad exhaust tips, and iconic Rally II wheels.
The sandalwood is quite harmonious with the exterior. After all, it looks like you mixed the copper paint and white roof together. So the full package has the kind of coordinated style that will have you leaving down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop so people can get a good look inside. The other reason why you'll want to show this off is because of its time capsule-like style. It has all the best working details, like the AM radio, dome light, and vintage-style SW gauges. And the factory air conditioning has even been switched over to R134a refrigerant. The 8-Track is currently not playing, but that doesn't stop you from putting a Three Dog Night cartridge on display just to impress everyone that sees it. And of course, as a true GTO, it's a proper driver's machine. That means bucket seats up front, a tilt steering column, and round gauges with a large speedo and tach.
While we were nearing the end of the muscle car era, it absolutely was not over in 1971. This GTO has the correct YS block for the optional 455 cubic-inch V8. This is believed to be original to the car, and it has a terrific stock and ultra-clean style that makes it ready to show off. The big V8 fires up eagerly as it inhales deeply from the correct-style Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. And you'll love the throaty rumble from the H-pipe dual exhaust. This is the kind of coupe that's going to make you want to hit the streets, and so they gave you the right features to enjoy it. The TH400 three-speed transmission was built to be stout enough to handle the power while also giving you smooth automatic shifting. This has power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a rear end with boxed trailing arms and a sway bar.
This GTO has the look of a significant classic, and so it comes with significant paperwork. It includes the factory buildsheet, warranty card, owner's manual, reproduction window sticker, and Pontiac Historic Services (PHS) documentation. Something this unique and powerful won't stay with us long, so don't miss out, call today!
