First Year American Muscle Car Legend: the 1964 Pontac GTO

The Gran Turismo Omologato (GTO) has a charming story behind its development, in which John DeLorean dropped a 389 cubic inch engine in a Pontiac Tempest as an experiment – just to see how it worked. According to the legend, upper management thought they would never sell so much as 500 GTOs and didn’t like that the GTO exceeded ten pounds of body weight for each cubic inch of engine displacement, but eager customers had ordered over 5,000 of these mid-sized muscle cars.

Looking to Buy a 1964 Pontiac GTO?

Can you imagine yourself sliding behind the wheel of this bold, red performance machine, turning the key and feeling the power surge and the heady growl of the engine waiting to take you anywhere you want to go., then feeling the surge of power as you shift her into gear and hit the gas?

The Vermillion red GTO featured above started life an entirely different color; it was Gulfstream Aqua with a dark aqua interior, and the seller mentions having the build sheet from Pontiac Historic Services.

This GTO has had three owners, and as a ten-year project, this performance machine was completely restored by the second owner who kept the original engine and 4-speed transmission intact while changing some other details to make this ride even sweeter than it already was.

Some comfort features were added to the interior during the restoration process, such as adding sound-deadening Dynamat to the flooring and panels and installing a custom sound system that includes a CD player installed in the trunk.

Thanks for taking the time to read about this beautiful ’64 GTO, and be sure to check out this classic Goat on eBay by clicking on the image above if you would like to see the rest of the details on it.

Information About the 1949 Hudson Super Six

The 1949 Hudson Super Six was released as a full sized luxury notchback coupe, with (according to Automobile-Catalog) a naturally-aspirated 4-stroke Six-262 engine.

(The ’49 Hudson Super 6 shown above is listed for sale on eBay, the listing mentions the car still has the straight six and cork clutch.)

Info on the ’49 Hudson Super Six Shown Above

This 1949 Hudson Super Six runs but the ‘surface needs work; according to the seller, and it is a one-owner, museum-owned vehicle, and it has undergone a few pretty cool modifications.

Let’s visit the interior first since that’s a comfort detail for whoever buys this beauty – the interior has been reupholstered, and from what is visible in the photos, it looks pretty nice.

Why this 1949 Hudson Is a Lead Sled

(I do realize most everyone reading here already knows the terminology, but I don’t want to assume that – so I like to put a few words of definition on terms related to some of articles about these customized vehicles.)

The chrome has been shaved off the doors and leaded in. (I’m ashamed to say I didn’t notice the absence of handles at first glance.)

One last feature I would like to point out on this Hudson Super Six is on the front end – recessed, Frenched headlights that add to smooth, clean lines of this amazing 1949 custom car.

Slammed and Chopped 1953 Chevrolet Pickup

I was looking for a rat rod to write about this afternoon, and I got distracted from my quest when I ran across this awesome slammed and chopped 1953 Chevrolet pickup truck.

Check Out This Customized 1953 Chevrolet Pickup Truck!

In 1953, Dwight Eisenhower became President, Peter Pan flew into literary history, and the slammed and chopped Chevy truck in the picture above rolled off the production line.

Okay, some other stuff happened, too, and this truck looked a lot different back then, too.

Slammed?

This customized truck has been slammed, which at its very simplest definition, means it sits very low to the ground, with its frame, obviously, I guess, having a very low clearance.

Chopped?

A chopped top is also part of the customization this truck has undergone – and at its simplest, the term means a section has been removed from the pillars on the cab, and the windshield has been sectioned to accommodate the shorter space.

The stunning mate black and vibrant blue theme is carried through to the interior of this ’53 Chevy truck, with black seats featuring blue welt for contrast, a blue steering wheel, and incredible lacy blue floral graphics painted over a black base on the dashboard.

This truck is a piece of art just as much as it is a vehicle, and it’s listed for sale or trade on eBay and there will be a couple more photos dropped on the Classifieds page here on the site if you want to check them out.

Ratting Around in a 1930 Model A Rat Rod

I usually think of a rat rod as a car with a lot of patina and a lot of power, so I hesitated a moment when I saw the shine on this chopped top, channeled 1930 Model A Rat Rod – but – it’s edgy enough to fall in the rat rod category and it definitely brings the power with its 350 cubic inch Chevy engine, and its 350 turbo transmission.

Looking to Buy a 1930 Model A Rat Rod?

I want to start by mentioning that this rat rod is listed for sale on eBay, and you can tell at a glance it’s going to be a head-turner and totally fun driver for whoever picks it up.

This car already has a lot going for it, and it also has some things that need some work, and the seller details those with a great deal of honesty and even made sure to show the places that need work in his photos, so there’s no guessing or wondering what you need to take care of with this ride.

While this chopped and channeled ’30 Ford Model A is a  great rat rod, it also wouldn’t take a lot to fix up the rough spots and transition it into a classic street rod.

For example, the seats don’t match anything but the red rims on the car, and they aren’t fastened in because they’re too tall for the car.

I was looking on specs for the original height of the 1930 Model A and didn’t find anything, but I did find that there were three million Model A’s built and they came in nine different body styles.

Production of the Ford Model A ended in 1932 with a total of 4,858,644 Models A’s produced from October of 1927 (1928 models) through the end of the A line production.

The shine continues in the engine compartment, where the 300 HP 350 cubic inch V8 has a chromed water pump and a polished power steering canister, plus a polished Edelbrock carburetor and polished intake manifold.

The shimmer doesn’t stop there, though, because the 100 amp alternator and the A/C compressor are also chrome, plus even the exhaust system is polished to a pristine shine.

The customized interior features reclining bucket seats, leather covered door panels, and tilt steering wheel.

The seller mentions that this car has received the first and second place Best of Show and Best Interior awards at several shows, and on top of it’s beauty, it’s not a trailer queen, it’s a reliable machine that you can drive anywhere.

This is where I would normally add some general specs about the model of car I’m writing about, but since this is a customized street rod, I’m going to stop and encourage you to visit the listing, because the seller included so many details, I had to summarize quite a bit.
