We have been building LS powered restomods for over 9 years and GM muscle Cars for over 30 years.

The Body and Interior

It all started with an original 1970 GTO Hardtop with 242 VIN. The car was all stripped to bare metal and media blasted. Original GM quarters, hood, fenders, doors and trunk lid were reused and all body panels were mocked up and fitted for high quality gaps and body lines. The car was broken down and installed on a rotisserie. The tub was blasted inside and out. A new tunnel was fabricated to accept the new T56 6 speed transmission. All panels were given meticulous body work until laser straight. The car will be painted with a urethane base coat clear coat paint in the color of your choosing (car is ready for paint this week and will be painted by the end of March. All panels will be painted apart and the jambs inside the doors, fenders and trunk lid will be very nicely done with the highest of quality.

In the engine bay and firewall had its factory heater box holes welded closed then the firewall was worked with body filler and painted gloss urethane in body color for the smooth custom look. The inner wheel liners in the engine bay also received a fair amount of body work smoothed out and painted gloss body color as well to match the firewall.

Tires and wheels will be owners preference with a $2,500 budget. All new 6 piece glass package will be purchased (windshield, door, quarter and rear) in either smoked dark gray or factory soft ray tint.

The interior will be new from top to bottom with all newly reupholstered 70 factory bucket seats and covers. The interior has Dakota Digital gauge package in the original dash bezel openings for the factory look along with a Vintage AC and Heat factory fit system that bolts right in the factory dash location. The 6 speed Hurst Shifter pokes out of the interior console with Hurst short throw shifter handle. Finally a factory rebuilt tilt steering column adds to the comfort of adjusting the steering wheel where you would like it to be.

The Heart of the Car:

A brand new factory GM Performance LS3 crate engine will be purchased with factory installed “HOT CAM” producing 480 horsepower. These engines are incredible, if you want to drive slow they have super mild manners but as soon as you hit the accelerator it has brute big block style power…. they have good gas mileage (93 octane pump gas friendly), they fire up with the legendary fuel injection power….no messing with chokes, no messing with a carburetor, no messing with timing, no worries about the engine running hot in traffic…..these engines perform GREAT! We paint the intake plenum red to match the lettering on the factory Corvette engine covers and had a custom GTO decal made to cover the Corvette lettering on the covers. We added a front runner serpentine belt kit manufactured by Holley Performance giving you a stock GM look with brand new alternator, power steering pump and new Sanden Mini SD7 AC compressor. New aluminum radiator and electric fan along with a new Delco battery will finish off the engine bay.

Gear banging is super enjoyable with the new Tremec T56 6 speed manual transmission. First through fourth gears get right down to business with the 3.55 gears out back. Pop it into 5th and 6th overdrive gears for nice highway cruising at low RPM’s. The transmission handles 700 ft. lbs. of torque and shifts effortlessly with the new hydraulic clutch system.

New brake lines along with chrome smoothie master cylinder and brake booster was added. A new EFI gas tank with fuel pump and sender right inside the tank for low operating noise is used. New tubular control arms front and rear, shocks, bushings, ball joints and steering components were all added. Finally wrapping up the underside is a new custom bent aluminized 2 ½ inch exhaust starting with a stainlesss set of shorty headers, custom H pipe, Turbo style mufflers and factory chrome GTO tips exit through the rear.
