The July 2015 issue of The Legend features Victor Breithaupt’s 1964 Yorktown Blue “Tiger Tribute” convertible, which was built as a LeMans at the Pontiac, Mich. plant on June 25, 1964 with a 326 and a four-speed, and converted by a prior owner to look like a GTO. Victor found the car on Craigslist; it had been stored in a barn for many years but was driveable with a solid body. He immediately set to work on a major overhaul and upgrade, installing a blueprinted 428 built by Ray Gonzalez Sr. (a former Royal Pontiac mechanic in the 1960s) and his son Ray Jr. of Gonzalez Engine in Dearborn; a tri-power setup rebuilt and tuned especially for the 428 by Mike Wasson of Pontiac Tripower; and posi rear by Warren Gear & Axle. A new ivory top sets off the mostly original blue interior. Cragar SS wheels give this Pontiac a true muscle car look.
Also in the July issue: “Change is Good” with Curtis Roehm; “Instrument Panel Removal” with Vince DeLisi; “Memories of Hurst Performance, Part 21” with Dennis Kirban; and “Susquehanna Valley GTOs 2014 All-Pontiac Show” with Bill Vantuono.
All this and more—and the new GTOAA Club Store, operated by Custom Auto Apparel—in the July 2015 issue of The Legend, the only national automotive magazine devoted exclusively to Pontiac’s Great One!
