52 years family-owned 1970 Pontiac GTO Hardtop Coupe Restored, Modified


Here is a 1970 Pontiac GTO which was built in Oshawa and has been owned by the same Ontario family for 52 years.  It was purchased in 1972 by the father of the current owner before the latter inherited it.  The father and his brother ran a well know speed and performance shop in the west end of Ottawa and the current owner is a second-generation shop owner with memories of riding in the back seat of this GTO for fast weekend runs to the family cottage as a child.  The current owner has overseen a restoration with modifications to bring power for the stroked Pontiac 400 cubic-inch engine to 574 horses at 5700 RPM, complemented by 580 lb.-ft. of torque at 4700 RPM – please see Dyno sheet in the gallery for full testing results.  The seller acknowledges that the burnout video to demonstrate this GTO’s line lock and power was somewhat self-indulgent and will also have an new set of Mickey Thompson rear tires equivalent to those photographed installed and balanced for the new owner.

This GTO was refinished in its original Granada Gold colour, Pontiac code 58, in approximately 2015.  The vinyl on the roof was replaced; the original was brown, the owner opted for a black vinyl roof on the refurbishment.  These contrasting exterior colours are in place over a brown interior.  It is mostly original, the front bucket seats have been re-covered with correct Pontiac upholstery, the pattern of which matches the rear bench.  Carpets have also been replaced with correct OEM items in the original colour.  The body-coloured Endura front bumper, original to the car, shows some cracking under the paint – see photos in the gallery.  Below the front bumper is a Judge-standard front spoiler, the black grille frames are also a Judge tribute touch (these were chrome, originally/for non-Judge GTOs in 1970).  Rear bumper is in chrome, complemented below by quad exhaust outlets.

The car has been modified with many finishing touches upgraded to the level of GTO Judge trim:  rear spoiler is an aftermarket reproduction of the Judge spoiler, dash clock has been replaced by a tachometer by AutoMeter (clock face remains with the car, in the glove box and photographed).  There is also a hood-mounted tachometer – review our videos to see both tachometers displaying readings consistent with one another.  Further added instrumentation includes a gauge pack by Auto Gage below the radio, featuring readouts for voltage, water temperature and oil pressure.  A functional twin-scoop hood with RAM AIR decals (another Judge tribute) is in place, the car also has power steering, power brakes featuring line lock and a digital display ClassicSound CS-900C AM/FM Radio with AUX input.  Brakes are discs up front and drums in the rear, the stock set-up.

Thanks for the offers so far. We have taken care of this true Muscle car for as long as I can remember. Drives to Luskville Dragway and Carling Ave. Tough to let go after all this time and investment. Ready to cruise down the street making new memories. Running as well as it ever did.
