Built between September 1997 and April 1999, this project came about as a result of never seeing a built up model of a '67 GTO. Basing this subject on the poor quality MPC GTO promo style kit proved to be quite a challenge. It was planned out to be styled in such a way that would evoke a sense of the car's aggressive character.
Major modifications include a shaved and channeled body, operative deck lid, exterior and interior beveled door handles, hollowed and reconstructed front fascia, sectioned interior converted to two seat configuration, dashboard smoothed and ventilated, fully upholstered interior and trunk, frame rails separated from chassis floorpan, scratchbuilt 4-link rear suspension, integrated Corvette front suspension, and a multitude of scratchbuilt components throughout. Although many components such as small braces and reinforcement pins are not visible, this model is composed of 590 kit, scratchbuilt, and aftermarket items.
The model is finished with House of Kolor Cortez Blue Pearl fogged over Orion Silver with just a hint of Kandy Purple. This theme carries over to the chassis and floorpan as well. To eliminate all visible flaws from view both exterior and interior surfaces of the body are painted and polished. Deep Lilac Pearl engine and suspension components accent this combination as does the custom mixed Silver Grey interior.
