The wild AMX/GTO project is on the home stretch! As a quick refresher, this car is a 1969 AMX body that was placed on the chassis of a wrecked 2007 Pontiac GTO. The GTO was cut and narrowed, the AMX body was left virtually unaltered, and after a whole bunch of welding and work that is all pretty much hidden, the marriage of the two is complete. At this point the car starts and run minto, the jambs and engine bay have been painted, all of the GTO electrical stuff is done, the interior is done, and final fitment of the front fenders, hood, and doors, is underway.
In a little more than a year Scott, who is a virtual neighbor of the BS eastern world HQ in Massachusetts has combined these two cars, the wrecked GTO and an AMX that had seen far better days in a pretty amazing feat of home garage car building. The thing that is really impressive to us is how well the GTO interior fits inside the AMX, dash and all. There was some cutting and chopping of said dash, but sitting in the car and actually experiencing the interior is very neat. He managed to incorporate all of the modern electronics from the GTO, and we mean all of them. Electric gas door opening button? Check. Navigation? Power Seats? Electric Trunk Popper? Check, check, check. We can’t wait to go for a ride.
Once Scott gets the front fender fit properly, the car will get the paint finished and he will concentrate on the doodads like door handles, trim, etc. The heavy lifting on this thing is all done. As soon as it is ready and the paint is dry, look for a full bore feature here on BangShift!
