The '75-'76 engines were by Design to run on inexpensive low Octane fuel.

This is the perfect Big Block for a go to the shore cruiser convertible.

I was 20 in 1972 when I found this GTO convertible in a Towing Yard -
Stolen & 389/4spd stripped out - dumped down by Hudson River.

The novice hotwired Glove Box Light to Back Up Lights .. Wiring Spaghettis.

$75.00 & a Bottle of Good Scotch from West Point .. Beansy's Towing flat bed left it
at the front door.

Scored a less than 1k mile '72 Pontiac GP 400 / TH400 combo for $500 from a salvage yard
along with the fresh GP rims.

Moved trans crossmember back - added Cherry Bomb longs & left town to work
playing Bass behind The Shirelles - The Original Coaster - Opened for Chubby Checker
& The Five Satins on Long Beach Island , New Jersey.

The 400 GP motor is Retired. The TH400 is being kept until someday when GM sorts out
the 6spd - 8spd Automatics. Don't want to cut the floor so probably the 6spd Paddle Shift.

47 year Love Affair.
