    You're all over the map. Ever since you joined, you've gone from a Road Runner to a Barracuda, to 70, 71 & 72 Challengers and now to a GTO. Every one of your posts here are asking for help with cars you're interested in at the moment, but never buy.

      Even with the sacrilege of a Chevy transplant :poke:
      in an iconic GTO :screwy: , if not too rusty or beat to shit,
      that's not a bad price
      you can always get an engine/trans combo (rear ?)
      Pontiac stuff ain't cheap anymore either,
      neither are the better Pontiac engines or transmissions

      (65 is my favorite)

      I see way too many with LS swaps, it's the trendy thing to do
      hopefully not going down that rabbit hole

      good luck if you decide to get it

      sorry I can't help ya with the inspection I'm out west too

      Look at the valve covers. Small block chevy all day long.

          I agree, Pontiac valve covers were wider and not as tall.

          I owned two GTO’s
          64 tri power convert 4 speed
          A mint 69
          My dad loved the 69
          He would sneak out in it on early Sunday mournings to get buns and the paper

          The 64 I believe was the car they named the song after
          I’d love to get a 65, maybe someday
          My buddy had a deep blue tri power 65
          Car was gorgeous


          You need to see documentation the car is in fact a real GTO
          A correct engine might be expensive
          If your heart is set on a goat and the body and frame are rust free and it’s a real GTO the price might not be bad
          But that’s a lot of “ifs”
          Be well advised to do that car right like most projects ain’t cheap

              Also, look at the intake/thermostat housing area. Pontiacs are open, SBC is closed. My Firebird...

                I believe It's a Chevy. Chevy engines are a dime a dozen. If you can't even put a Pontiac engine in a GTO forget it!! I've used 383 SBC's several times. with dart blocks. They get the job done, but not in a legendary GTO. That's just wrong.

                  I've never owned a GM product and don't intend to start anytime soon, that's why I asked.
