Classic Car Overview
Pontiac brought back the GTO for 2004, and this low mileage time capsule represents the resurrection of a legend. But more than quality, this one has the powerful LS1 V8, six-speed manual, loaded interior, and affordable price to keep you grinning ear-to-ear. Sleekly rounded styling, factory ground effects body kit, full-width rear spoiler, and the factory 17-inch alloys the last GTO was quite a sporty machine. But more than just living up to its legendary name, this is a very special Pontiac. The company made an unprecedented move to reach over to Australia to bring back the best four-person sports car in the GM family. It was such a good idea, that this would be the base for the Camaro a few years later. But in 2004 the GTOs revival was a quiet one, with less than 16,000 cars brought over for the inaugural run. So to have one in a glossy shade of its factory-correct Torrid Red is a truly special offering. And with Pontiac gone from our landscape, its getting tougher and tougher to find late-model muscle with the twin kidney grille. The interior is one of the best arguments ever for reaching across the world for a new GM product. Holden had far superior materials than much of the rest of the Pontiac lineup, and in fact, this GTO helped show the way to the companys all too brief future. That means power front seats that know how to keep you planted on twisty roads and still remain all-day comfortable. And with low miles on this coupe, there was very little time to wear in the leather. Youll love the detail work, like how the red dials feel performance-oriented and match the exterior color. This is a premium Pontiac product, so you get plenty of great features such as power windows, power locks, keyless entry, dual front airbags, tilt steering wheel, cruise control, and ice-cold air conditioning. Plus, the AM/FM/CD stereo is by Blaupunkt, so you get premium European sound in this American muscle package. This coupe might have been sent over from Australia, but the heart is pure American. This LS1 powerplant is the same version that we all love in the C5 Corvette. The original 5.7-liter V8 looks fantastically well preserved in the engine bay, which is what you want to see on a car that has only averaged about 2,600 miles annually. This is a world-class motor rated at 350 hp for GTO duty. Its a versatile V8 that makes for easy driving in everyday situations. But that six-speed manual with upgraded shifter means you have the control to make it instantly growl to life the moment you want a dominant sports car on the streets. Plus, it has all the best modern driving features, including a fully independent suspension, limited slip rear end, variable ratio power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS. So you know you wont be able to resist adding plenty of more miles to this future classic. This car has only lived in Florida, and it comes complete with the original window sticker, owners manual pack, and maintenance records. You know the final-generation GTO is on its way to becoming a desirable and rare classic. So if you hurry, you can pick up an exceptional example while its still affordable. Call today!!!
