This is the second in a 30-day countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s annual Palm Beach auction
Lot 698.1 is a GTO convertible powered by its original high-output 455cid Ram Air V8 engine, which is linked to a three-speed automatic gearbox. The car also has a 12-bolt rear axle and Safe-T-Track differential.
Other features include factory power steering and air conditioning, as well as power front disc brakes.
The color is Atoll Blue with sandalwood top. F70-14 “wide-oval” tires complete the look.
The car has been authenticated by Pontiac Historical Services and is one of only 241 ’70 GTO convertibles equipped with this engine/transmission combination.
The car underwent a body-off rotisserie restoration in 2016 and goes to auction from the John Staluppi Cars of Dreams Collection.
Barrett-Jackson’s annual Palm Beach auction is scheduled for April 12-15 at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach.1 comment
