1966 Gto Convertible on 2040-cars
Greenlawn, New York, United States
|This an absolute gorges car, I am selling for a friend and honestly if I did not have two kids in college it would be in my garage. The car had a frame off restoration done between 2004 and 2006. I have about $120,000 invested in the car at this point. The motor was completely rebuilt by Jim Taylor a Pontiac performance expert, to XS specifications. It has a tripower, a 4sp wide ratio Muncie M20 transmission and a 3:55 posi rear. It has disc brakes in the front, 15” crager rims, Overall it is in beautiful condition but it needs the finishing work on the details . For a few thousand, the car can be made to be brilliant. It has hooker comp headers right now and 3” duel exhaust. I built it for me to be a driver but it can be brought to stock easily enough.The car has matching numbers for the motor and body. The VIN shows original color was green, the car had the 2sp automatic and was a 4 barrel carb. I think it is more fun in its current form. The body on this car laser straight with no filler all metal is either original or new old stock. What else can I tell you about it? I will be happy to answer any questions on the car, it is located in Long Island NY. and is available to be seen with an appointment.

Bob Lutz sits down for Autoline Detroit - Click above to watch video after the jump

Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.
General Motors has another spate of recalls to announce. This time they cover 312,280 vehicles worldwide, including 269,041 of in the US, in a total of six campaigns. In 2014, the automaker has recalled 29,079,765 vehicles worldwide, with 25,754,356 of those in the US.

The largest among them covers 215,243 units of the Saturn Vue from 2002-2004 model years worldwide, 202,115 in the US. It's possible for the for the key to be removed even when the ignition isn't in the OFF position. The company knows of two crashes and one injury caused by this problem. Dealers are checking the parts and replacing the ignition cylinder and key set, if necessary.
Next is 72,826 models worldwide (48,059 vehicles in the US) of the 2013 Cadillac ATS four-door sedan, 2013 Buick Encore and 2013 Chevy Trax in Canada. It's possible that the for lap belt pretensioner to retract but not to lock, which could increase occupant movement during a crash. Both front, outboard lap belt pretensioners are being replaced, and a stop-sale is in effect on unsold models until the problem is repaired. There are no known crashes or injuries, though.
Bob Lutz was one of the forces behind bringing the Holden Monaro to the United States, as the ill-fated Pontiac GTO in 2004. And while that car received critical acclaim, it was a sales disappointment. Now, Road & Track is reporting that our suspicions were correct - Pontiac was working on a two-door, G8-based coupe before it was shuttered.
In that R&T article, which is no longer available online, Lutz explained that the new GTO would solve many of the issues found in the original. Car Advice speculates that the new model would have look like a rebadged version of the Holden Coupe 60 Concept from 2008, a conclusion we also came to.
That car would have been a big departure from the 2004 to 2006 GTO. It has an extremely long hood and short rear deck, with an almost fastback roofline and a wide greenhouse with a tall beltline. The wheel arches were very pronounced, and the chin and rocker panel splitters gave it a race-ready look. Would it have been enough to make the GTO work in the US? We think it might of, but it looks like we'll never know.
