1970 Pontiac GTO Hardtop


1970 Pontiac GTO Hardtop

The Pontiac GTO became known as "The Goat" due to an interpretation of the letters that make up its name. Figuratively speaking, the car's "defiant, stripped-to-the-basics personality" also had a hand in cementing the moniker, according to It is speculated that the acronym GTO, which stands for Gran Turismo Omologato, was taken from the Ferrari 250 GTO. American consumers have a history of shortening the names of cars with multiple syllables, and this likely influenced the nickname of this Pontiac brand. "The Goat" is catchy, easy to remember and was essentially born out of convenience.

Purchased by our consignor, then all paint and bodywork completed later, we present for consignment, a beautiful 1970 GTO. Restored and sporting a mere 51,975 title verified actual miles, but not so much to make this a trailer queen, resprayed in its original hue, sporting its original interior, a numbers matching powerful V8 and 4-speed manual transmission, this car was made to be enjoyed. PHS documentation is included for the car, along with service records dating back through the years including a full engine rebuild in 1986. The Humbler, this is the way it's going to be baby!

For 1970 GM tweaked the GTO's design with a number of detail changes and subtle refinements. At the front of the car, Pontiac's installed smaller twin grilles with quad headlamps at the edges of the iconic Endura bumper. Below that bumper, the car's front valance features revised and more aggressive square parking lights; and above that bumper, a sculpted hood with Pontiac's legendary 'twin nostril' Ram Air air intakes. Behind those intakes, the windshield glass is bordered by an attractive layer of bright stainless trim and a correct chrome driver's side mirror. Below that mirror and bathed in a respray of the factory correct Palladium Silver, aggressive fenders and body lines are highlighted by stainless wheel well trim, straight stainless rocker moldings and traditional chrome door handles. The gaps are well minded throughout the body and just a few inclusions and flaws are seen in the paint, particularly on the lower panels of the body, and we note some cracking in the Endura front bumper. On the back fenders, '68-era arrowhead marker lights have been exchanged for wrap-around tail lights and at the back of the car, a chrome bumper hangs proudly with new for 1970 tail lights between quad exhaust tips. Never overlooked are the GTO decal callouts in black on the front fenders and the trunk lid, so you don't forget who you're about to mess with. 15-inch Pontiac Rally II wheels are on all 4 corners and give the right vibe.

Take a look inside this A-Body's cockpit and you'll find a snazzy correct and original dark green interior. Front and center, a straight and crack-free dash wears a wood applique around the original gauges with an engine turned aluminum panel at the bottom. On the floor, a new Hurst shifter in the original center console sits between the two bucket front seats. The seating, both front buckets and rear bench show very nicely with the driver's seat being the only area presenting with wear, albeit minimal. At the sides of those seats, stainless-trimmed door panels hang red-inlaid "GTO" emblems above the original hardware and armrests. Below all of this, dark green carpet frames chrome-trimmed foot pedals. In front of the driver, what appears to be the original 3 spoke steering wheel with its PMD in the center now has a leatherette wrap installed around the perimeter. Behind the passengers, the trunk is finished with correct paint and has a correct liner mat, jack, and full sized spare tire.

A 1970 numbers matching 400ci WT stamped V8 steel blue painted block is topped with casting number 12 Ram Air III cylinder heads resting between the fenders. This potent poncho is fed by a 4-barrel carburetor and an original and number matching Muncie M20 4-speed manual is behind the mill and sends power back is a 10-bolt 3.55 Safe-T-Track rear axle. This engine presents nicely in a well restored engine bay and has some extra bling from the factory in the form of chrome valve covers and a chrome air cleaner lid assembly.

Give this car a lift and we are met with independent front suspension and 4-link rear suspension. Drum brakes on all 4 corners help bring the car to a halt and dual exhaust with new Flowmaster mufflers snakes its way from the mill back. All of this is supported by a strong steel frame replete with light surface rust and patina. The rest of the undercarriage is a mix of surface rust, factory undercoating and black paint. While underneath we note new fuel lines, a new starter, and a new powder coated radiator support

She fired right up, and as I put my foot into it the 400 cubes spring to life. On our well hidden test track I experienced smooth shifting and nice steering input from the manual steering but on the acceleration front things were hampered by a heavily slipping clutch. Braking was solid and all functions were working just dandy however the heater blower was not blowing at the time of our drive.

Overall a nice example of the 1970 version of the Pontiac GTO. Competently restored with only a few minor flaws, but a numbers matching muscle car right from the folks at Pontiac. With a mostly known history, PHS documents, service records, and remaining true to its original colorings, this goat won't last long, all nicely wrapped up and waiting for you to turn the key.
