1968 400 H.O. GTO - Two Tone Paint





Nope - that's not a white vinyl roof. It's metal, factory painted white.

1972 455 H.O. Post Coupe GTO, special-order Starlight Black paint



Quote:
Then there is the rarity factor. Pontiac assembled 134 post coupe GTOs in 1972 of the 5,807 total GTO production that year. Just 7 were built with the 455 H.O. and the automatic trans like Terry's (3--455 H.O. with manual trans, 5--455 D-port with automatic trans, 59--400 with manual trans, and 60--400 with automatic trans). Sure, there are two combos more rare than the Pope's, but when you consider they paid $115.85 for W51 special paint, choosing Starlight Black, how many GTOs like theirs do you think were built for 1972?

1969 Ram Air V Judge Vintage Race Car





http://www.highperformancepontiac.co...gto/index.html

Ram Air V

In 1969 Pontiac created several versions of their "tunnel port" engine: a special short-deck version of the V8 for Trans Am racing and a 400 standard deck version. The cylinder head was patterned after the highly successful Ford 427 tunnel port head. So large were the intake ports that the pushrods ran through the center of the ports via pressed-in tubes.

The RA V engine was an over the parts counter item. None were ever installed by the factory

1965 Pontiac GTO Ram Air VII



Quote:
The dual-quad R/A-VII was an experimental engine developed and tested by Pontiac Engineering. Nunzi re-created it by using a modified 428ci block, R/A-V cylinder heads, and an experimental intake manifold.
http://www.highperformancepontiac.co...vii/index.html

I don't normally post hot rods or modded cars in this thread but this is the first time I have ever see a Ram Air VII engine. It's a RA V Tunnel Port 428 CI with dual quads.

RA V = 400 CI single 4 BBL (GTO)
RA VI = 428 CI single 4 BBL
RA VII = 428 CI dual 4 BBLs

1967 Pontiac GTO Convertible - Plum Mist







Quote:
Not many '67 GTOs were factory painted Plum Mist. Add in the convertible top, four-speed, California emissions, and a bevy of options and you have one rare ride.

Plum Mist was originally slated as a standard color for the '66 model year, but was changed to a special-order color. In 1967, GM decided to make it a standard color (code M) at no extra cost.

Notice that unlike the Olds W30, Pontiac did not use red plastic inner fenders. They were red plastic inner fender LINERS. Like colorful splash shields. They do look . . . unique.

1967 400 H.O. GTO





http://www.highperformancepontiac.co...gto/index.html

400 HO

This engine was first offered in 1967 as the third engine in the GTO and Firebird line (after the 400 2 bbl and the base 400)....It produced 360 bhp (268 kW; 365 PS), and had the cast iron headers. The camshaft was the HO cam with 288/301 duration. It was the top of the line engine until the 400 Ram Air was introduced later in the year. This engine was offered as an option in 1967 thru 1970.

H.O. = High Ouput

1967 428 H.O. Hurst Grand Prix Convertible







http://www.highperformancepontiac.co...rix/index.html

Quote:
I was just looking through my old Hurst Heritage book from 1983 (out of print) and found another neat Hurst Pontiac. Pacing the 1967 Daytona 500 was a 1967 full-size Grand Prix convertible (the only year made as a convertible). The car had a 428 H.O., Hurst wheels, plus a nice black & gold paint scheme. That would be a great car.

A 1971 4 Door GTO?



Quote:
A '71 LeMans Sport four-door hardtop (no center pillar), also built at the Fremont plant and special-ordered by Warren "Monk" King for his Monk King Pontiac dealership in Denton, Texas, it's known as the Monk King Four-Door GTO because it was ordered with the T41 Endura styling option, which consisted of the GTO hood and Endura bumper. Other factory options include the L75 455 four-barrel engine, a Turbo 400, dual exhaust, Safe-T-Track differential, power front-disc brakes, Rally gauges, hood tachometer, honeycomb wheels, white-letter tires, power seats, and power windows and locks. According to Pontiac historian Fred Simmonds, only 30 LeMans Sports were ordered with both the L75 455 four-barrel and the T41 Endura styling option, but there is no breakdown of how many were installed in four-door sedans and hardtops. In addition, only 11 four-door LeMans Sport hardtops received the L75 455 powerplant.

Note: The LeMans Sport emblems and fender louvers were removed and replaced with GTO identification by a prior owner. The placement of the 455 emblem on the lower front fender is original to the car.

1972 Firebird Formula 455 H.O. - Special Order Paint - Black



Quote:
In '72, the Firebird came with the choice of 15 exterior colors, but black was not one of them. In order to get your Bird painted the color of night, you had to put in a special order and hope that the factory would approve it.

"It still bears the factory original drivetrain-the ultimate in high performance for Pontiac for '72-the 455 H.O. engine, connected to a Muncie M22 four-speed transmission, residing beneath a fully functional Ram-Air Formula hood.

Other factory options include a black interior, Rally gauges, center console, power windows, rear spoiler, and one of the seldom-seen options in a 455 H.O. car with a four-speed -air conditioning. It currently has 60,000 miles on the odometer.
