Savvy gearheads can build ‘custom’ muscle cars in backyard garages all day long. But when it comes down to sinking big money into a reliable purchase, is that really the ‘one of one’ car you want? Unless you’re just as savvy, and know how to fix those one-off pieces if someone miscalculated a bit, probably not. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with guys building awesome cars themselves. In fact, we’ll be the first folks to drool over a really nice custom that shows the creativity of a dedicated enthusiast. But, we also have the ability to offer you professionally built ‘one of one’ muscle cars that were designed and assembled by some of the biggest names in the hobby. An early star of TLC’s Overhaulin’ series, this killer GTO was penned by Chip Foose, fitted with a 461 cubic inch Pontiac V8 and fully finished by some of the best fabricators in the world. From its mirrored, wet-look paint to its unique Foose wheels, this Poncho is the stuff dreams are made of. And if you’re looking for the ULTIMATE pro-tourer to spend time riding in, instead of time working on, it’s an excellent place to park your money!

BODYWORK/TRIM

It seems all re-imagined classics have a story, and this stunning Pontiac is no exception. Back in 2004, Overhaulin’, a project that showcased the raw talent of Chip Foose and his group of A-Team fabricators, was becoming a big hit on cable channel TLC. Well-known singer and actress Sheryl Crow decided to contact the show’s producers in hopes of planning a star-studded episode. Her idea was to overhaul the 1970 GTO convertible she gifted then boyfriend Lance Armstrong when he claimed his sixth Tour de France championship. Unfortunately, as nice as the tiger was, it needed a little help. And, after some careful planning and eight days of intense labor, Foose and his team of master craftsmen transformed the car into the beauty you see here.

By 1970, Pontiac had essentially perfected the aesthetics of its revolutionary muscle car. But, when you roll anything in front of a group of seasoned customizers, what was “perfected” becomes absolutely “lustworthy”. At the front of this goat’s body, a highly renowned Endura bumper hangs chrome-trimmed ‘kidney’ grilles and a yellow-detailed “SPRINT6” emblem between H4 headlights and clear, chrome-trimmed parking lamps. Behind those grilles, a Formula-style hood leads the eye to smoked glass that’s framed in bright stainless trim, cleared by correctly hidden wipers and sealed with a fresh black top. At the sides of that glass, smoothed ‘coke bottle’ fenders are highlighted by shaved doors and classy gray pinstripes. And at the back of the car, a color-keyed bumper hangs clean, factory tail lights above polished stainless exhaust tips.

ENGINE

What does a group of enterprising hot rodders do when tweaked factory fodder just won’t cut it? They call up Butler Performance of Leoma, Tennessee and order a balanced and blueprinted torque monster that spins 450 horsepower into 528 lb./ft. of tire-scorching twist! Toss this tin indian’s hood and you’ll find a 461 cubic inch Pontiac V8 that’s been stroked, smoothed, painted, and dressed in some of the best components on the planet. At the top of the mean mill, a custom Cadillac air cleaner hangs a Lance Armstrong autograph above braided fluid lines, a 750 Demon carburetor and a small Barry Grant pressure gauge. Below that Demon, an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake feeds aluminum Edelbrock heads that feature custom, LIVESTRONG-themed valve covers. Below those heads, a custom Comp cam creates explosive combustion with the help of an aftermarket distributor and beefy MSD Super Conductor plug wires. At the sides of that cam, ceramic-coated headers send vaporized dinosaurs into a brutal sounding, true-dual exhaust system. And in front of those headers, quality billet pulleys spin a chrome alternator, a painted Sanden AC compressor and an aluminum water pump above a powder-coated power steering system. Cooling for the massive engine is provided by a painted Be Cool radiator, which is complete with two electric puller fans. Motivation is provided by a modern electronic fuel pump, which shoots fossils through a series of polished lines and polished fittings. The vicious sounding powerplant rides in an OEM-quality bay, which reflects glossy paint via smoothed panels. And the enlightened muscle car enthusiast will immediately spot details like a dual-reservoir brake booster and custom-painted steering linkage.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

The bottom of this awesome GTO is just as impressive as its slick exterior and clean engine bay. Behind the massaged motor, a proven GM Turbo-Hydramatic 2004R utilizes a custom driveshaft to spin a rugged posi-traction differential around a 12-bolt Moser rear end. Stopping is a cinch thanks to Baer 4-wheel power disc brakes, which squeeze large drilled and slotted rotors. Exhaust is handled by custom-fabricated, 2.5-inch true-dual pipes, which bend around an X-shaped crossover and polished Magnaflow mufflers. At the front of the car, modern power steering combines with Hotchkis springs, a Hotchkis sway bar and Hotchkis upper control arms to provide razor-sharp handling. At the back of the car, a factory 4-link utilizes a second Hotchkis sway bar and two more Hotchkis springs to provide excellent grip. In the middle of the car, a custom-painted frame perfectly complements solid, professionally undercoated floorpans. At the corners of the car, power hits the pavement via custom Foose wheels, which spin 235/35ZR19 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs in front of 275/35ZR20 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs. And every detail under this slick drop-top, from its painted oil pan and Hi Torque starter to its polished hardware and beefy transmission cooler, has been carefully planned and professionally executed.

INTERIOR

Take a peek at this A-Body’s fully insulated cockpit and you’ll find a simple black interior that was completely replaced during the car’s extensive restoration. The firm front bucket and rear bench seats, factory units, are covered in fine, gray-piped leather. At the sides of those seats, custom door panels anchor factory handles and familiar GM armrests between Focal kick speakers and integrated quarter speakers. In front of those panels, a factory dash, which is detailed with color-keyed trim, hangs rebuilt gauges above an Alpine head unit, Vintage Air climate control and a second “SPRINT6” emblem. Beneath that dash, a stitched and painted console props Auto Meter accessory gauges in front of a correct shifter and chrome power window switches. Beneath that console, like-new carpet bridges the gap between factory foot pedals, “GTO” branded floor mats and standard Fisher sill plates. In front of the driver, a color-keyed wheel spins a custom, LIVESTRONG-themed horn button around a modern tilt steering column. And behind the passengers, a custom-upholstered trunk hides a giant Kicker amplifier under a nice amount of storage space.
