Re: 1970 Pontiac GTO Estimate
Like many have said, if itís not a rust bucket, thatís a huge advantage. Even though itís not a super rare ram air car, itís still a car you donít see everyday. In fact, Iíll guess ram air cars lived harder lives and got destroyed at faster rates?
For a stock Pontiac engine, the 400 is hard to beat. The 455 had virtually the same sized heads/ports and hp, but gobs of torque. Streetlight to streetlight a good running q-jet 400 Pontiac with. 2.52 1st gear and say a 3.55 or 3.42 rear gear will put a smile on your face.
Thereís lots of little tricks to squeeze cheap power out of a 400 Pontiac d port motor. With stock ďSĒ 068 cam, itís all done by 4800-5100 rpm but will pull like a freight train to that point. One of the most fun cars I ever owned was a 1974 Formula 400 4 speed firebird. It had 1968 number ď16Ē d port heads and an Isky solid cam similar to the Pontiac ďSĒ cam. Lots of fun memories with that car in the high desert of SoCal, back in the 80ís when I was a dumb, broke, desert-rat kid. Oh those were good times.................!!! LoL
