Thank God the wood dash thing died a quick death.


I was wondering when someone would knock the dash and green on green! I like it, but that’s me. The bubbling is on the clear fiberglass portion of the car.

Re: 1970 Pontiac GTO Estimate

You might want to ask your question on the Team GTO site (whatever it's called). '70 Goats are about the least lusted after of the Goats (surpassed in dislike only by the '74 GTO). I think 25K is too high.

I like that car I just wish the color wasn't green but that wouldn't stop me from buying it at the right price. If that paint is brand new they are probably looking to get close to their asking price of $25K so I don't think they will drop down to below $15K unless its been on the market a long time.If you're buying it to flip remember you make your money when you buy the car.I wish I would have known that fact a long time ago.

Well evidently certain folks did/do or they never would have sold any in that flavor

An OE nose wouldn’t be fiberglass. They can warp and crack over time, it would be wise to check carefully for accident damage.

I think those were similarly called an “Endura Nose” like what debuted on the 68 GTO. We’re supposed to take a small hit and pop back into place, or at least that was the marketing hype behind the material used.

Here’s that endura bumper marketing hype ad by Pontiac:
They seem a little too proud of that bumper.....LoL

We use to see that here with the 71-72's. Not so much anymore. They have become just as desirable as other years for many.

I like that 70 GTO. Color and all. I would not mind driving it. Better fix the a/c though.

Back when I was painting there was a special additive to add to the paint for the Endura gummy bumpers. It was supposed to make the paint a little more flexible.

Looked like a Trans Am wheel. Maybe the were originally going to install that wheel. Maybe a preproduction car for the commercial.

Same types of nuances are seen in the Chevelle SS commercial. The commercial showed a few items that did not appear on the production vehicles.

The T/A wheel was an option on the 70.

Re: 1970 Pontiac GTO Estimate

Checking with the GTO guys too. This is been helpful. 25k sounds like a decent deal, but nothing spectacular. I’m going to check it out next week anyway.

Re: 1970 Pontiac GTO Estimate

Well I like Pontiacs and have to many POCI shows. A original 70 GTO is a nice find. Its CA car and an original 4 speed! A few grand deleted for no working A/C.

In the commercial the GTO`s headlights are on but the taillights are not. That is either a goof or that car has worse wiring than a British car.

Re: 1970 Pontiac GTO Estimate

Those are very nice cars to drive. They usually handle well with a little positive caster added. That price is too much for me but not out of line for that car.. If it had a body off it would be well over 50...

Some survey's say the 70 is the most popular. Just my opinion but I like the 66 and then the 65. I prefer clean, low chrome cars. As GTOs go I think the 66 has the best looking tail lights and rear end. It looks like the 64 Grand Prix which is the best looking car ever made as far as I am concerned..
