Old Pontiac Wagon Gets The GTO Treatment And It’s Pretty Neat In A Wacky Way

Classic Pontiac wagons such as the LeMans are a lot less popular than the iconic GTO two-door, a muscle car built by GM for roughly a decade before the plug was pulled due to poor sales.

Fortunately, this hasn’t stopped car enthusiasts from having an appreciation for it, especially the second-generation model, which was arguably the best one – despite its many facelifts and slight changes in appearance.

Spotted here by Reddit user NickRynearson seems to be a late 60s LeMans Wagon with a GTO front fascia and some neon yellow and green decals, aka Judge stripes, on its front and rear fenders.

The GTO bits definitely come from the 1971 facelifted version, which featured a new hood with the re-positioned dual scoops and a more pronounced radiator grille. That was also the year before the GTO reverted from being its own model to becoming an option package for the LeMans.

While this isn’t the only Pontiac GTO Wagon conversion out there, it’s definitely one of the best looking ones, as long as you’re appreciative of this sort of mod, of course. Otherwise, you’ll probably feel as though this car makes very little sense when you could instead opt for driving an actual classic GTO, although one does not come cheap by the way.

But what do you think; is this a fuel-sipping insult to the GTO moniker or perhaps something you’d see yourself happily driving?

    Absolutely amazing how little room (as a percentage of the length of the car) was devoted to passengers back then. TONS of engine room and cargo space, but passengers got the short shrift. I remember riding in a mid-90s Buick Roadmaster sedan and felt totally cramped in a huge car.

    With that much engine then take into consideration the weight of this ole girl, pretty as she is, I don’t think she could be categorized as ‘fuel-sipping’ whether you see it as a GTO insult or not.

    Personally I don’t. I think it’s well executed and I wouldn’t mind it sitting in the driveway making my dd Acura look tiny.
