SERVICE: Through our shop inspection we looked over this GTO closely. The following things were added/repaired. Added heat sleeving to the spark plug wires, repaired the front turn signal to cancel properly, adjusted the driver window to function smoothly, and repaired the window trim. Whoever the next fortunate owner is will have one of the best pro touring muscle cars in existence!

Every single aspect of this GTO is overly impressive! It does it all: the workmanship will impress even professional builders, the performance will impress anybody with a driver's license, the looks will impress anybody with a pulse! Seriously, this is a world class build with only 1,400 miles. It would cost double to duplicate; you will be waiting a couple years and you could only hope it will turn out as great as this one.

A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum.
