Pontiac built a special GTO for the ’70 show season. Called La Vinta, it featured pearlescent Orbit Orange paint, a Ram Air IV, non-production badging and wheels, and an unusual pleated patent leather interior. Its whereabouts are unknown.

Thanks Lee! I remember reading somewhere saying it was one of the few N96 cars, but I could never find a picture of it. The closest I did come to it was actually on the back of the All-Chryslers at Carlisle 2014 tshirt. Speaking of Carlisle, I had the chance to talk with the owner of the blue 1970 Dodge Coronet Superbee with the 426 Hemi and 4 speed (the one of 21. It was the 3rd of 4 produced in Virginia.) The first time I talked to him, it was pouring rain and he actually opened the hood for me (who does that in the rain?!) Thanks again Lee. Now I'm the look for my second dream car- 1969 Dodge Coronet Superbee with the 426 Hemi and 4 speed in F8 green and black bumblebee stripe, but with the A12 lift off hood and the rear Go-Wing (Day 2 look). Thanks again Lee

1966 427 Ford Custom







AFAIK, the Redline tires are incorrect - should have either WSW or BSW tires though they do look good on this car. The Custom was the lowest model in the Galaxie family.

1962 409 Impala SS Lightweight (1 of 18)







Quote:
Built to compete against the aluminum front-end cars constructed by Pontiac, the factory lightweight Impalas came with an assortment of aluminum parts, including the hood, front fenders, fender liners, brackets, and front bumper. The net weight savings was 125 pounds, but the change in front-to-rear balance also aided weight transfer under acceleration, giving the factory lightweight Impalas better traction than their steel-bodied counterparts. By August of 1962, the lightweight parts were in the Chevrolet catalog, available to owners of steel-bodied Impala 409s looking to make their cars even more competitive in the quarter-mile.

1969 Z/28 - Stripes Delete




It is estimated that 10 1969 Z/28s were Stripe Delete cars. This is one of them with docs to back it up.

1963 427 Galaxie Lightweight







http://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/2...-indianapolis/

The Ford FE 427 was introduced part way through the 1963 model year. It was a racing engine only to be used for NASCAR and Drag Racing. If you want to compare it to other powerplants of the OEMs, it was like the 426 Hemi - never used to power large cars or trucks. Strickly for racing.

Did you know . . .

Ford introduced the GT option for the Mustang in April of 1965 for the 1965 model, but it wasn't until the 1968 model did the Mustang GT get wheels included in the option
