How to Restore Your Pontiac GTO (1964-1974) - Return Your GTO to Original Condition

Starting life as a hopped-up Tempest, the 1964 Pontiac GTO featured a 389 V-8, heavy-duty suspension, quick steering ratio, dual exhaust, and a floor shifter. Equipped with this performance package, the GTO set itself apart from other pedestrian coupes of the same era, and it made history.
Many regard it as the first muscle car. As muscle car wars reached fevered pitch, the GTO would establish itself as one of the most prominent performance cars of the era, and from 1964-1972, more than 500,000 GTOs were built.

You are shown different levels of restoration and afforded the information to select the right type of restoration for your particular car.

This book covers how to verify the authenticity of your particular car, the most desirable models to restore, and option information.
Like the other Restoration Series books, this new entry focuses on the actual hands-on, how-to procedures for restoring a GTO to its original condition. Each chapter illustrates the key procedures for completing a specific portion of the restoration project with detailed captions and color photographs.

"How to Restore Your Pontiac GTO" covers all aspects of restoration - engines and drivelines, bodywork, interior and trim, suspension, brakes, chassis, and steering.
The book provides guidance to assess your facilities, ability to do the work, and then determine the best course for completing the work. Sourcing and selecting the best parts for your restoration is also covered.

If you are restoring any GTO of this time period, this book will be a valuable resource for years to come.

Swap LS Engines into Chevelles and GM A-Bodies : 1964-1972

The GM LS has become a favorite engine to swap into classic cars because it offers a superior combination of horsepower, torque, and responsiveness in a compact package. As such, these modern pushrod V-8 engines are installed in vintage GM muscle cars with relative ease, and that includes Chevelles and other popular GM A-Body cars.
In fact, General Motors manufactured about 500,000 Chevelles and A-Body cars between 1968 and 1970 alone.

Jefferson Bryant has performed many LS swaps throughout his career, and has transplanted the LS into several A-Body cars. In this comprehensive guide, he provides detailed step-by-step instructions for installing an LS powerplant into a Chevelle, Buick GS, Oldsmobile Cutlass, and Pontiac GTO.

To successfully install an LS engine, you need to select or fabricate motor mounts and adapter plates to mount the engine to the chassis. Also, you need to integrate the electronic engine controls and wiring harness to the A-Body car.
If you run a fuel-injection system, a new tank or high-pressure fuel pump, fuel lines, and related equipment must be installed.

Bryant covers all of these crucial steps and much more. He explains essential procedures, time saving techniques, and solutions to common problems. In addition, he performs a new LT swap into an A-Body car.
