1971 1/2 PONTIAC GT-37 350 2BBL / 2 SPEED AUTOMATIC / POWER BRAKES / POWER STEERING / AIR CONDITIONING (in-op, but all there). EXTREMELY RARE COLOR. CODE 61 SANDALWOOD WAS VERY RARE. IT WAS NOT A POPULAR COLOR IN 1971 MUSCLE CARS. THIS PARTICULAR CAR WAS NOT ONLY ORDERED WITH CODE 61 SANDALWOOD, THE BUYER ALSO ORDERED SANDALWOOD INTERIOR WITH BLUE REFLECTIVE STRIPES WITH OPTIONAL POWER OPTIONS OF POWER BRAKES, POWER STEERING AND A/C (INOP). LOOKS REALLY SHARP ACTUALLY. YOU WILL DEFINATELY HAVE A VERY UNIQUE CAR THT IS NOW BECOMING A VERY GOOD INVESTMENT AS MORE OF THESE CARS ARE BECOMING KNOWN. The GT-37 is NOT fully restored, but is what I say has had a real good re-conditioning. It is a great weekend cruiser. It runs and drives really good, stops straight. The engine block does not match, however, the heads (cast 94), intake manifold, carb etc all seem to belong to the car. Looking under the hood looks really stock. Previous owner said the motor was matching, but the engine block code is WD and I don’t believe match. I replaced the floor with new pans, and the body was touched up. The paint which was painted recently, buffed out and polished. The paint is decent, not show quality, but good is quality in my opinion. There are a few paint chips and flaws in the body, but very presentable. I put the correct BLUE REFLECTIVE GT-37 Sword striping on. Replaced door, glove box and trunk locks. Replaced the tires with new RWL 70 tires and new lug nuts and center caps. Replaced the rear coil springs. I also replaced the hood pins and located a lot of missing trim and replaced the weatherstripping and windowfelts. New halogen headlights. I gave the 350 a tune up with new plugs, cap, rotor and points, new air cleaner. The air conditioner does not work, but it all there under the hood. The heater core has a small leak so I had to bypass the heater hose. New Flow Tech Red Hots Glass Packs and replaced the exhaust tips. Interior, I replaced the headliner, added carpet, package tray, door sill plates and cleaned and re-dyed the upholstery. The door panels have had some repairs and should be replaced, but I have not been able to locate a good set of standard 71 panels (GTO panels are of a different design). The trunk pans have had patches over the years, it is ok for now, but may be something a new owner can replace in the future. The trunk lid still needs trunk torsion rods to hold the lid up. A few notable things I noted that still may need to be addressed: The RH rear tail light assembly has seen better days, duct work under dash is missing, the fuel guage does not work, chrome bumpers show there age.
