Your guess is as good as mine as to what this is.

They really wanted to convey the high class appeal, and DeLorean was always looking at the European market. He wanted a sports car with great balance that could run through the mountains and hills like a Jaguar, while Americans preferred stoplight drag racing and brute power in a straight line. The Firebird had it all, depending on how it was equipped.

These are the engineers, designers, and stylists associated with the new 1970 GTO, but it's a bit misleading. These promotional photos were supposed to convey a 1970 GTO with and without a body. Notice the designers and engineers have their coats on in the GTO photo, but the gentlemen in the chassis photo (different people, these are the interior and chassis guys) have their coats off.

The 70 GTO is the pre-production example that was featured in many ads and promo photos. It has a one-piece fiberglass nose instead of the factory Endura bumper and redline tires (redlines were discontinued for the 1970 Pontiacs). The one-piece nose on the GTO was great for promotional photos as it eliminated getting all those gaps straight between the Endura bumper and valance panel.

The chassis photo shows what appears to be the same GTO but without a body. It has a GTO engine (chrome valve covers and air cleaner lid) but now has double white pinstripe tires. The biggest clue that this was not the same car is that they highlighted the exhaust system in red paint, and it's single exhaust, never available on any GTO. Also notice the bucket seat and steering column appear to be gold, not the red interior as shown in the full body GTO photo.

Was originally sold in CA - no chrome exhaust tips allowed. Should have N97: Noise Reduction Package, on the Fender Tag. RPO N97 was a NC option required for all 383-4V, 440 and 440+6 cars registered in CA. Interesting that Hemi cars were not subjected to this requirement.

All 1969 Charger 500s had the V88: Delete Stripes because the 500 started out on the production line as an R/T which had the Bumblebee stripes standard. Normally the stripe color would be on the Fender Tag as V8R/W/X or V88 if deleted. With the 500 there is no stripe color on the Tag. To determine the color you would use the R/T stripe guide. There are no RPO codes for the 500 stripes like there are for the R/T stripes.

Not sure what this photo is. It looks like a 1967 production Camaro on the right and a styling mule on the left.
