My nephew is building a 1964 Tempest for me. I'm hoping to help out where I can with my mechanical skills but most of the work has been body and paint so far. He just installed the engine so maybe I'll be involved more.

My nephew has built 20+ muscle cars.  For several years I've drooled over them but never felt we could afford a luxury like that. Of all the muscle cars, the 60's boxy-body GTOs were always my favorite. My nephew found this car in someone's front yard. It was one of those "someday I'm going to restore this car" projects. My nephew was able to buy it and has had it stored for a couple years while he planned the work and bought the parts needed. He says it is a really solid car but did have some rusted out places in the trunk and floor and rocker panels. He's fixed all that with a frame-on restoration.  

All new front end assembly, 428 Pontiac motor, headers with cutouts, 400 turbo transmission, Eaton positrac, new seats, Dakota gauges, and lots of little things like a Stay Cool water pump, and other goodies he's learned to install to make the car a reliable and drivable hot-rod. It's going to be all black inside and out with smoked glass all around. Work is slow as he has other commitments, but this should be a nice Christmas present. 

Although not technically a GTO this '64 will have all the muscle and more that the '64 GTO had.
