Default Survivors

Hello,

I’m a New guy to this forum.

Several friends have told me about this site, so I’m checking in.
I realize it’s mostly Chevrolet, which is fine with me as I like anything with muscle from the 1960’s.
My preference is Pontiac and was hoping to find a few of this manufacturer still in its “Original Factory Condition”.

True “Survivors” is what drives me in this hobby.
Factory Paint, Factory Interior, Factory Powertrain.

How many such cars of any brand fit this description on this forum?

Thanks in advance for any legitimate examples that someone is willing to share.

Regards, Chris.

Hi Chris, and welcome to the site. Survivor cars are a sought after niche market. The members on this site have vast collections of unrestored/ survivor cars.


There are posting in various forums such as members rides and the preservation forum. Change the display options to : Beginning so you see all the posts.

Thank you John and Steve for the welcome.

I have had many “True Survivors” over the past 45+ years and still have a couple. Always looking for more as it’s my favorite Treasure Hunt.

I’m still finding my way around on this site and I see a few Survivor types already.

Thanks, Chris.

Default Paramount 1965 GTO !

Hi Keith,

Heck, this 65 that your father purchased new is world famous !

You are very fortunate to be the current caretaker of such a low mile Survivor.

FYI, I’ve had a folder dedicated to your car for a long time, top of the heap.

Thanks again for sharing.

Chris.
