   Hi Alan.
                  Is this the one from DKs ?   Looks like it was originally a Gold/chrome 1970 model GTO from the info quoted in the ad.  Too late to warn you about the BS addiction  :D ;D :D,  well you can't take it with you so enjoy what makes you happy.  banana.  Where are you, by the way.

Yes it is Brian
Started it all the electrics work and it has a good spark the left piston rings are siezed solid and the chrome plate is shot so that ones off for replayting the right hand side looks like new so l'm intending to leave alone ld be interested in your thoughts on that decision what would you do??
Kind regards
Alan

I just checked and my latest one is a December 1969 which is clearly marked on the silver information sticker under the headlight on the frame which is gold and chrome pretty obvious as the side panels are that colour l just wasn't looking properly it's been a long day

Alan,
        Maybe lift the head on the right side to check the chrome. Agree, if it ain't broke don't fix it. ::)
