1971 Pontiac GTO Convertible

Very rare GTO Convertible representing one of only 508 produced with the 400ci V8 and Turbo-Hydramatic combination! Factor in the optional air conditioning, power disc brakes, power steering, Rally II wheels, and host of other features, this is one very special drop top! Numbers matching engine & transmission, both fully rebuilt during professional 2012 rotisserie, body-off restoration! Just a gorgeous, highly detailed car!

With the muscle car era quickly coming to an end due to continued pressure from federal legislature to reduce vehicle emissions and introduce unleaded fuel, many power hungry automobile enthusiasts find the 1971 model year to be the final page in history for potent, carbureted horsepower. At Pontiac, they introduced a new body for their famous GTO that included wire mesh grills, horizontal bumper bars, more closely spaced headlights, slightly longer wheelbase, and a new hood with scoops relocated to the leading edge! Production for the 1971 GTO was approximately only 25% of the year prior making them exceptionally rare, and convertibles numbered only 678 vehicles!

We are excited to offer this 1971 GTO Convertible fitted with its numbers matching 400ci V8 YS-coded V8 producing 300 horsepower and Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed automatic transmission with Safe-T-Track 3.55 rear axle. Options include factory air conditioning, power disc brakes, power steering, power convertible top & windows, AM/FM/8-track radio, center console, 15” Rally II wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires, all Soft-Ray tinted glass, driver’s remote mirror, hood mounted tachometer, Formula style steering wheel, and Ride & Handling package.

This early December 1970 production unit was originally delivered through Lester Goodson Pontiac located in Houston, Texas. It later made its way to California, before finally landing in Boca Raton, Florida over the past several years. It was freshly restored by PPD Restorations based in Fort Lauderdale in full body off, rotisserie fashion in 2012. Nothing was left untouched with nearly every component rebuilt, restored, or replaced for new. The exterior body was beautifully prepared and coated with a superb application of Lucerne Blue base coat/ clear coat. The undercarriage is equally presented with smooth floor pans & frame, all new gas tank & lines, all new body bushings, fresh suspension components, all new 2.5” exhaust with Pypes mufflers & quad tips, new braking system & lines, all beautiful detailed for show purposes with proper inspection marking & stickers visible throughout.

The top side received similar attention to detail with all new weather stripping, trim, chrome, new convertible top with glass back window & boot cover, T3 headlamps, all new interior carpet, seat cushions & upholstery, door panels, dash pad, sun visors, new windshield & seal, all new power window equipment & switches, refinished Rally II wheels with new center caps & trim rings, and a gorgeous, show-worthy under hood presentation! Make no mistake, it is a vehicle ready to be enjoyed and driven! Everything on the car is fully functional with exception to the original dash cluster temperature gauge. It is bypassed for small Equus temp unit hidden nicely in driver view under the left side dash.

Finding an original, rust-free and unmolested 1971 GTO Convertible is no easy task! This example represents one of 508 equipped with the popular and very faithful 400ci V8/ Automatic combination. With the high dollar restoration already completed, and the host of factory available equipment it possesses, you can be assured this is likely one of very few like it! It’s a remarkable car that will no doubt make the next lucky owner proud to show off in their garage or any Pontiac gathering. Please call with questions or schedule a chance to review it in person.
