You are bidding on a 64 GTO that was a original 4-speed, Tri-power car. It has no drive train and what you see in the pictures is what you get. I have some new parts in the pictures and I have two lower patch panels for the rear. it has had the front floors and trunk panels already replaced. I also have a rough set of correct front and rear seats that come with the car. I do not have the title so the car will come with a bill of sale. It is around $250 for a replacement title in Texas. I have the paperwork from PHS (Pontiac historical society) to show the options that came on this car.
All the glass is there but the front windshield is cracked. there is rust issues around the front and back window but repairable. I have two back window side sections from a donor car for the rear window. The original hood has a hole cut in it but I have a section cut from a donor hood to repair it. a original hood is very hard to find. I do not have the hood inserts but you can buy new ones for around $250-$275. There are no bumpers and there has been some body work in places on the side. This car will require some work to restore or make a awesome rat rod / Gasser. Try to find a 64 GTO in this shape to restore.
It has a reasonable low reserve. I am selling this car because I am focusing on my 69 firebird convertible. The car is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end this auction at any time. I have tried to be as detailed as I can on the condition of the car. I value my 100% rating on EBay. Good luck bidding.

General Motors is recalling around 38,000 Pontiac G8 sedans from its 2008 and 2009 model years. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that the cars may have a passenger-side airbag flaw that might prevent proper deployment in certain scenarios.
Fri, 26 Oct 2012 12:45:00 EST
According to NHTSA, the airbag might not adequately protect a fifth percentile woman - that is, a woman around four-foot, 11-inches weighing 108 pounds. The New York Times indicates that the anomaly was found during a crash test conducted by GM's Australian branch, Holden, which was testing the G8's twin (read: Commodore) for head injuries. According to that report, the test in question is specifically tailored to simulate injuries to females, so the results do not apply to men or children.
The issue has been blamed on a seat position sensor that governs airbag deployment rates. NHTSA indicates that when the front passenger seat is moved all the way forward, the faulty sensor may inappropriately trigger a 30-millisecond delay between airbag stages, potentially leading to greater injuries.
At fourteen years of age, Kathryn DiMaria has already done what many self-proclaimed gearheads won't even attempt in their lifetimes. The Dearborn, Michigan teen is rebuilding a car from the ground up.

The intrepid youngster asked her parents when she was just twelve to start a Pontiac Fiero project, even offering to pony up all the funds herself. Father, Jerry DiMaria only expected the project to last a few months, but two years later, Kathryn is still at it. In this CNN video, the two are at Maker Faire (a DIY festival) rebuilding a 3.4-liter V6 engine out of a Chevrolet Camaro to replace the 2.8-liter mill found in the Fiero.
The whole family hast pitched in, with Kathryn's mother teaching her how to sew in order to complete the interior, father Jerry providing much of the technical know-how, and even her sister is chronicling Kathryn's progress through photos. Jerry even started a thread in a Fiero forum which has been live for two years and is now 22 pages long. Of the project, one forum member wrote, "welcome to the madness."
There are few things simultaneously more romantic and idiotic than taking a road trip in a beaten-down heap of a car. Trust us. We know. David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of Hot Rod Magazine fame recently undertook an epic trip from El Paso, Texas to Los Angeles with the express goal of doing so for under $1,500, including the purchase price of a vehicle, food, lodging, repairs and, most importantly, fuel. With this in mind, the duo settled on a 1972 Pontiac Catalina for a lofty $650. Hilarity ensues.
Realizing that no one actually wants a Catalina sulking around the shop, Freiburger and Finnegan put the car up for auction on eBay Motors the instant they had the title in hand. By the time they rolled into Hot Rod HQ, the vehicle sold for a little over $500.
The video is part of a new series called Roadkill that should document similar adventures. Keep your eyes peeled for more calamity-soaked clips in the near future. In the meantime, hit the jump to check it out yourself.
