Lot #497 - This unrestored original California built GTO just received the Concours Gold Award at the 2014 GTO Nationals. It has the rare California specific 400 High Output (360hp) with its original California smog equipment. The condition of the floors to the paint is nothing short of remarkable. Original paint dabs are visible and it even retains the original drive shaft stripes and US Steel imprint on the gas tank. The original sheet metal is beautifully straight and the factory paint, glass and trim are exceptional. Originally sold at Loufox Motorcenter Inc. in Delano, CA on 1/24/1967, it remained in the Delano/Bakersfield area for over 40 years. The originality is unmistakable and confirmed along with the numbers by the GTO Nationals scoring sheets, Protect-O-Plate and PHS documents included with the car. This 76,000 original mile car was driven carefully and was meticulously cared for which allowed its preservation.
