1973 GTO Street Machine, !FINISHED! 6/10/18

Recommended Posts

This is a resin kit done by our own Doctor Larry. I made quite a few changes to the stock GTO such as the Laguna rear windows and '74 style grille lights. This was a fun build of my all time favorite car. I'll be doing a few more of this body style. You can check out the build here: 

 

This is the car that inspired me:

And here is my build:

0610180621e-vi.jpg

After loading the pictures I noticed I forgot the upper radiator hose and the back up lights. I'll add those befor I put it in its case.

Thanks for looking!!!!

That really came out great I love that body style I wish one of the model companies would tool that I think there are many modelers that would love to see it in plastic hint hint to some company out there.!!!

Nice build-the first complete street build with one of my resins. YelloSportWagon did HB Bailey's 73 Grand Am NASCAR car. Both builds look great and you guys got them done faster than I have!

Really nice GTO. It's not every day you see a GTO in this style, at least not for me. However, I think it is a great style for an awesome street machine.

Thanks everyone for the comments!

It was a fun build!!!

Larry, I built the tail lights from scratch, as the GTO ones are a little different from the Grand Am.

Great job.   I really like seeing a built up model.   Btw we need to get Keith Mark's to do decals etc for the 73 GTO.

That looks awesome I really like it I wish one of the model company's would make a 73 GTO with  LeMans  parts to make it a 2-in-1 type of kit.

A forgotten car in 1:1 compared to its older siblings, not to mention in smaller scale, very nice to see one being built.
