i always have mixed feelings about these builds. a GTO has to die to bring another back to life.

*sigh*

Looks like from one of the pics the 05\06 gto might have rear body damage. I perhaps am seeing it wrong.

Yea, it was hit in rear pretty hard. so it was either junk yard and parted out or what I am doing with it.
And some of you are already getting some cheap parts that you needed... :-)
The 70 was pretty far gone too..
So I see it as Win/Win

Have you thought about doing the modern side GTO call out badge on the side of the 70 but in paint or vinyl in the judge style font? Might be a subtle but cool blend hinting at the old meets new theme

Good luck. I saw the first one at the Kemah meet and it was very well executed.

It will have the 2006 IRS under it. I will do G-Force axles, sub frame connectors and stuff like that...right now I'm just cutting on the 70 body to get it where I want on the 06 chassis.

In the third picture, the 70 is a LeMans Sport...not a GTO. So it's not as bad as you thought. A modern GTO get's to live again disguised as a 1970! This just so happens to be my favorite year for the GTO.

If it was my build, I would do something like this (notice the hot chick...even hot chicks dig this GTO):

treyelchivo, enjoyed meeting you. hope the parts work out for you. That car lot where I said my old 57 was at is Diamond Motor Company 2101 East Loop 281. I stumbled on his business card yesterday.

Doc-Z,
I always try to use LeMans or Tempest bodies when I start cutting them up. I hate to cut up GTOs. And the pictures you posted looks like a late 80's or early 90's model :-)

I just read both threads. Awesome work man. I'm following another thread of a guy doing the same thing with a 60's Suburban body on a Trailblazer SS. That's not you too is it?

This part of the build it is lower the body, see where it is hitting, raise it up, trim metal off and REPEAT....over and over again..
I actually think I have the body about where I want it on the 2006 chassis. It looks like I need to cut 7 inches out of back to move the rearend up and add 8 1/2 inches to the front to move front tires forward....

Oh, I know the place. I used to date a girl east of town and drove by there every day. It looks to be called JCT auto sales now. I will keep an eye out.
