Pontiac GTO 455 HO, for sale in Solon, Ohio, price on application.Triple black: It's the color combination for a muscle car. Exotic colors are nice, but ask a car guy what turns him on and that's his reply, every time. Formal, cool and mean all the same time black/black/black cars are a breed of their own. Add in the very rare 455 cubic inch engine and ALL of the right visual options and you've got one of the best GTO's of all time.

This is a seriously fresh car with only test miles since completion. Look over the deep black exterior. The body is in excellent shape, free of dings, dents or ripples. The paint is smooth and flat, just as you d expect of its recent restoration. Rally II wheels with correct Firestone Wide Ovals are at each corner. The Endura front bumper, so frequently cracked and warped, is nearly perfect here. Stainless trim pieces are in great shape. The black convertible top is brand new and operates exactly as it should. The grilles are close to perfect and chrome parts from the door handles to the rear bumper sparkle. And yes, those stripes are correct, listed on the PHS-sourced build record. . they're rare, to say the least!
Pop the hood and take in the sights. Front and center is a warranty replacement, properly dated and coded YA 455 engine, resplendently detailed from top to bottom. Only 241 455/auto GTO convertibles were built in '70 out of nearly 3,800 total. . do the math! The block is the proper 9799140 piece, with #64 heads and a date coded manifold and carb. You can tell the car's only gone a couple miles since new by the lack of discoloration on the cylinder heads by the exhaust risers: We drove it far enough to sort it out and no more. The inner fenderwells, core support, firewall and other satin black parts are perfect. The A/C system is new or remanufactured throughout, including all new hoses, a new accumulator, the compressor, all seals and more. We charged it up with R134a and it blows cold. A new power brake booster and master cylinder stop the car as new. There s a new wiring harness in place, a reproduction cap on the new radiator and new hoses with tower hose clamps. New belts, date coded wires, fresh plugs, new filters and more mean the maintenance items have been replaced, and replaced properly.
There are rebuilt seats with new covers, new carpeting, a new dash pad, a clean center console and mint door panels. The one change, from a power bench seat to buckets with a power driver's side, should offend no one but the top 1% of purists. They look better, are sportier and allow for more interior adjustment. The dash panels, both chrome and woodgrain, are brand new. All of the interior chrome is new. Clean gauges work as they should. Again, everything is fresh and everything works as it should.
Underneath the key word is spotless. From the floorpans to the exhaust to the steering and suspension this chassis is well sorted, tidy and new. Steering and brake components are new and adjusted precisely. The automatic transmission is in excellent shape after its fresh rebuild, as is the 3.55-geared rear with new axles, bearings, seals and a brand new Eaton Posi. In keeping with its cruiser attitude the exhaust rumbles as new with its reproduction mufflers. The trunk is in the same condition: A new trunk mat, spare cover, the correct jack and spare make their homes inside while leaving plenty of room for car show supplies!
We have a stack of restoration receipts with parts and services large and small. Feel like building a car to this spec? Between parts and labor we have more than $90,000 in receipts, and that doesn't include the car!
Documented, built in THE color combo with the big 455 and A/C--this is what a GTO is all about! From the fit and finish to the GTO provenance this is a collector car that can be shown anywhere and enjoyed!
