This GTO will make a new owner interested in restoring it to its natural beauty is certainly a worthwhile Project.       It began its life in Fremont California and was sold by a Pontiac Dealer in San Francisco.      Copies of the PHS Documents accompany this sale.        It appears to have lived its life on the West coast as it still has the California Black license plate.      Car is presently in Portland Oregon.      I have only seen one 1966 GTO with the Color code BW which is a Dark Blue Charcoal lower portion and a Platinum upper color.     The elegance of that color is like looking at a Rolls-Royce which uses a lot of the dark/light combinations.        After seeing it on a GTO for the first time, I immediately became a fan.     Over the years, this GTO,  has been rode hard and put away wet, so to speak, by a bunch of dreamers.     I purchased the car out of Western Washington which is hot and dry climate, though I do not know how long it was there.       My reason for buying it was to part it out for my other projects, seeing as how it was t-boned in the passenger side rear.         After reviewing the the total car, I do not feel it is a candidate for destruction.      I have talked to several auto body guys and they agree that it can be readily repaired without using a quarter panel or a donor body.     The GTO has solid floors including the trunk.      The Frame is solid and has light surface rust in expected areas.         The T-boned right frame rail extension will need straightened or replaced.    The tail light housings are still good and possibly both the lens are good , one for sure, but right side grill covering lens is toast.      

The Hood, passenger fender, doors, all glass, bumper, most chrome pieces, grills, header panel, core support, inner fender wells, head light housings and bezels, roof section, driver rear quarter, major frame rails, cowl section, steering wheel chrome, rear end, front bumper, gas tank are all good usable parts, plus many more not mentioned, considering the age of most of those items.    Note the passenger door main window is missing, the the internal working parts are all intact.      

Originally the GTO came with options that have been removed or replaced.    The passenger reclining seat, Rally wheels, 3;55 safe-track rear end ( now has a 3:25) (not sure about safety track working), radio, speakers, original WT motor and 4 speed transmission are not there.  Presently has a non original Pontiac V 8 motor with a automatic transmission that is dropped in the slot.     Have no history on motor or transmission, and assume they do not run.         The manual pedals are still in place.     All of those missing items are available to purchase in most cases.     Might take some doing to get a reclining passenger seat.        The Drivers fender is toast.      A portion of the rear window side piece has been removed as shown in the pictures and I do not have a clue.        Needs to be repaired. 

Those of you that are interested, and have questions, may contact me either through this posting or call me 360-773-3887 ask for RD.
Please do not bid if you do not intend to purchase this GTO.        GTO sold as is, where is and seller will assist in loading when picked up. Seller has 60 days to remove vehicle after purchase is complete.     Can be delivered locally or taken to a pickup spot in the Portland, Oregon area, as the large auto transporting trucks can not make the turns to get to the location of the GTO.     Reserve is low and based on value of parts replacement.       GOOD LUCK on this GREAT FIND!

GM recalling 426,000 sedans over faulty transmission shift cable

Fri, 21 Sep 2012

General Motors is recalling some 426,240 sedans that may have a faulty transmission shift cable, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report this morning. The recall concerns a fault within four-speed automatic transmissions equipped on 2007-2010 Saturn Aura models, and 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 models.
The report specifies that tabs on the transmission shift cable may fracture and separate. Such a fault could cause a discrepancy between the actual position of the transmission and the apparent position of the shift lever.
GM is currently working to notify owners of the vehicles in question, and dealers will check and replace shift cables free of charge. Scroll down to read the complete NHTSA report.

This 1927 Oakland is a minimalist hot rod

Fri, 21 Feb 2014

There are hundreds of American automakers that sprung up during the dawn of the automotive era, only to fold into obscurity or get gobbled up by what would eventually become the Big Four (yes, we're counting AMC here). Oakland is one such company, which was the forbearer for General Motors' Pontiac division. Sold until 1931, you simply don't see Oakland-badged cars anymore. Unless, that is, you know Brian Bent.
Bent drives a 1927 Oakland that still rides on wooden wheels. Its original wooden wheels, from the sound of it. That makes this anachronist and his Oakland the perfect subject for a Petrolicious video. Like many of the cars highlighted by Petrolicious, this old Oakland has had some work done to it, featuring a Pontiac flathead engine that's been pushed forward and a clutch pack built by Bent.
Take a look below for a closer look at this rare and fascinating Oakland.

Lutz dishes dirt on GM in latest Autoline Detroit

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.
