1964 Pontiac GTO GTO
PHS (Pontiac Historical Society) Documented
In the past this Muscle Car was represented as being a Royal Bobcat. I can find no documentation to support this claim. It does have the lighter springs in the distributor but I have not torn the engine down to verify the aluminumlock nuts on the rockers or the offset keyin the cam.. I also do not know what jets are in the carbs. If this was a true Royal Bobcat the intake gasket would have the water passages blocked which I cannot confirm. The Royal Bobcat gaskets were in the trunk of the car along with the Royal Bobcat air cleaners. The Ace Wilson Royal license plate frames were also in the trunk.
With all that stated, It might be a Royal Bobcat or it might not. I am selling it asNOT a Royal Bobcat. If the buyer can document the car as a Bobcat, he will have made agreat buy.
This is an excellent example of a surviving Muscle Car. A 100% rust free, never hit or damaged car built in Fremont, CA, and delivered to Bryant Pontiac in Covina, CA. The car was in California until it was purchased by a military man stationed in L.A. in 1973. Hetookthe car to his family home in Detroit Michigan. From 1973 to 1983the car was a summer cruiser on WoodWard Avenue in Detroit and accumulated only a few thousand miles during the summer months that decade. It was then put into storage until it was purchased by the previous owner in 2006. At that time a complete restoration was performed. It is a 100% rust free and never hit or damaged survivor.
