Here's a real-deal 1972 Pontiac GTO with a big V8, four-on-the-floor, a cool color combo, and plenty of nice additions. It all makes for the kind of muscle car that's great for those who really like to drive something powerful and distinctive.
Pontiac fans know why these '72 coupes are so collectible. After all, it's the final year for the legendary second generation. It's the one that established the GTO as the true blacktop king with the wide stance and sleek hardtop profile. And arguably, they saved the best for last. The extra wide dual grilles want to consume the lesser cars in front, the same goes for the wide ram air hood scoops. There are also subtle details that add to the sporty style, like the color-matched front bumper, a hint of flying buttress in the rear pillars, and the side quad exhaust tips that remind us of the Trans Ams of this era. The light blue metallic paint does a good job of radiating in the sunlight for an attractive style. But we like how the overall theme of the car is about keeping a driver-quality presentation. It makes for less anxiety out on the streets, and thus, the big V8 and four-speed are easier to enjoy.
The Ivory White interior has a nice tone to go with the light blue exterior. It sort of looks like the blue sky and white cloud summer days that are perfect for enjoying a GTO. The interior is highly stock, and so that also means good details, like the working dome light. Plus, while you have bright white upholstery, high-traffic areas are done in black to show less dirt. So you once again get the feeling that this car wants you to enjoy it to the fullest. There are even nice additions like a retro-style AM/FM stereo with aux input and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) Bucket seats, a center console, round gauges, machine-turned panels, and a handy hood tach make for a sporty atmosphere. But what you'll really love is the feeling of control that comes from grabbing the three-spoke steering wheel in your left hand, and your right one will be instantly attracted to the Hurst shifter.
Pontiac's 455 cubic-inch V8 was their largest offering of the muscle car era, and so it's great to have this upgrade under the hood of a true GTO. It inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock intake. It makes for a nice power package that gives a nice rumble from the X-pipe dual exhaust. But if you're really looking to announce you've got the big motor, the exhaust cutouts know how to instantly bring the thunder. We love these Pontiac V8s because they are hardy setup, and so it will be fun to give this a weekend tune-up to unlock even more power. After all, we know you'll likely want to maximize the muscle since the four-speed manual transmission puts the full control firmly in your hands. Power steering, power brakes with front discs, stronger boxed rear arms, sway bars front & rear, and wide BF Goodrich T/As on Rally II wheels all make for a nice all-around driving experience.
The sale comes complete with good paperwork, like the owner's manual service manuals, build receipts, and PHS (Pontiac Historic Services) documentation. This is distinction, style, and big V8 appeal all in one hardtop package. Call today!!!
