Front Cover
MBI, 2000 - Transportation - 156 pages
One of the most fascinating stories to come out of Detroit during the muscle car era of the early-1960s and 1970s! An American automotive milestone, the 1964 GTO contained several high-performance components - floorshift, high-performance suspension, 389 V-8 engine, quick steering and dual exhaust. Get the inside story of the long and distinguished history of Pontiac's GTO on the streets and race tracks of America as Statham traces the evolution of the GTO from 1964-74 through all models, including the Tri-powers, Ram Air models, Royal Bobcats, the Judge and more.
