FOR SALE: RESTO ROD-ONE OF A KIND
FORESTDALE, Massachusetts

AN ORIGINAL TEXAS CAR. BOUGHT IT FROM THE
SECOND OWNER IN ODESSA TEXAS. WHEN IT
ARRIVED, IT WAS AN EXCELLENT RUNNING CAR WITH
A REBUILT 389 – 4BL AUUTOMATIC
I STARTED ON THE LONG, HARD AND COMPLICATED
JOB OF MAKING IT INTO A “RESTO ROD”.
SUITABLE FOR A POWER TOUR RUN.
I BEGAN BY REMOVING THE MOTOR AND
TRANSMISSION AND REPLACING THEM WITH A 6.2 LS
MOTOR AND 4 L 60 ELECTRONIC OVERDRIVE
TRANSMISSION. BELIEVE ME THAT WAS NO EASY
TASK; WE MADE CUSTOM MOTOR MOUNTS AND
FABRICATED THE EXHAUST. I HAD THE COMPUTER
CUSTOM “FLASHED” TO MY SPECS. WE INSTALLED
ALL NEW FUEL LINES WITH RETURNS, INSTALLED AN
INLINE CORVETTE TYPE PUMP AND FILTER.
I THEN INSTALLED A CUSTOM KWIK PERFORMANCE
ENGINE PULLEY SYSTEM AND BOUGHT A SANDEN
COMPRESSOR SO THAT IF A FUTURE A/C SYSTEM IS
INSTALLED, IT WOULD NOT HAVE TO BE RE-DONE
(INSTALLED SYSTEM AUG 2019).
I THEN INSTALLED A CUSTOM 2 ROW ALUMINUM
RADIATOR FROM CHAMPION RADIATOR COMPANY WITH
THE CUSTOM SHROUD AND ELECTRONIC ENGINE FAN.
I REBUILT THE ALTERNATOR AND STARTER.
I THEN BEGAN REBUILDING THE ENTIRE FRONT END
AND INSTALLED A “BEEFIER”
SWAY BAR.
I THEN REBUILT THE ENTIRE BRAKE SYSTEM FRONT
AND BACK.
I BLASTED AND REPAINTED THE EIGHT LUG WHEELS
AND INSTALLED NEW RADIAL WHITE WALLS.
I REPLACED THE STOCK REAR TRAILING ARMS WITH
A SET OF “PURE MUSCLE” HEAVY DUTY BOXED UNITS
AND INSTALLED A HD “FABCRAFT” REAR SWAY BAR.
I FRESHENED UP THE 3.23 POSI REAREND WITH
NEW BEARINGS AND SEALS.
I INSTALLED A CUSTOM EXHAUST SYSTEM.

---------------------------------------------
BECAUSE WE INSTALLED THE LS MOTOR AND
TRANSMISSION, THE ORIGINAL ANALOG GUAGES
WOULD NOT WORK; NO AFTERMARKET GUAGE COMPANY
HAS A DIGITAL DASH FOR A 1962 PONTIAC GRAND
PRIX – SO WE HAD TO MAKE OUR OWN. LUCKY FOR
ME I HAVE BUDDIES THAT ARE INTO ELECTRONICS.
– THEY MADE ME A ONE OF A KIND DIGITAL DASH
THAT WORKS GREAT. (SPEEDO, TACH, ETC.)THAT
LOOKS LIKE IT WAS FACTORY MADE. I WANTED A
STATE OF THE ART RADIO, SO I SENT MY ORIGINAL
“WONDERBAR” RADIO TO THE AURORA COMPANY THAT
CONVERTED MY RADIO TO AN AM/FM, BLUETOOTH
WITH A USB FLASH DRIVE. THE RADIO HAS THE
BUILT IN TELEPHONE HANDS FREE OPTION, (cost
$800+).
AS WITH THE DASH NOT HAVING AN AFTERMARKET
DIGITAL KIT, NO AFTERMARKET A/C COMPANY HAS
A DIRECT INSTALL KIT FOR THE 1962 PONTIAC
GRAND PRIX. I THEN CONTACTED THE TEC
DEPARMENT OF VINTAGE AIR CO. TO RETROFIT MY
STOCK HEATER CONTROLS TO WORK WITH ONE OF
THEIR KITS. FOR +$300 THEY MADE A ONE OF A
KIND
COMPLETELY STOCK LOOKING CONTROL WITH PLUGS
INSTALLED READY TO USE WITH ONE OF THEIR GEN
AIR SYSTEMS. I HAVE NOT PURCHASED THE REST
OF THE KIT, BUT AS I HAD MENTIONED EARLIER, I
ALREADY HAVE THE SANDEN COMPRESSOR INSTALLED.

WE TOOK APART ALL THE POWER WINDOW MECHANISMS
AND REPLACED EVERY MOTOR AND LITTLE PLASTIC
ROLLER FRONT AND BACK TO MAKE THEM WORK
SMOOTH. WHILE THE DOOR PANELS WERE OUT DOING
THE WINDOWS, I INSTALLED A CUSTOM REMOTE
DOOR LOCK KIT WITH 2 REMOTES.
MY SON AND I ARE 6 FOOT PLUS AND I FELT
THAT THE DRIVERS SEAT WAS TOO CLOSE TO THE
STEERING WHEEL FOR MY LIKING, SO WE
FABRICATED ADAPTERS THAT IT COULD MOVE 4 MORE
INCHES BACK AND HIGHER IN THE BACK, STILL
LEAVING THE ORIGINAL SEAT FLOOR MOUNTS INTACT
SO THAT IT COULD BE RETURNED TO THE ORIGINAL
POSITION.
WE HAD TO FABRICATE THE FLOOR SHIFT LINKAGE
DUE TO THE NEW 4L60 E TRANS.
WE MODIFIED A “SHIFT WORKS” KIT FROM A GTO TO
WORK – IT DOES.
THERE ARE MANY OTHER DETAILS THAT WERE
UNDERTAKEN IN THIS PROJECT. BUT AS YOU CAN
SEE BY MY NARRATIVE AND LIST OF PARTS, IT WAS
VERY INVOLVED AND VERY EXPENSIVE-NOT TO
MENTION THE HUNDREDS OF MAN HOURS SPENT.
I ADMIT THAT IT STILL WILL NEED A LITTLE TLC
AND A NEWER PAINT JOB, BUT THE MECHANICALS
ARE 100% PLUS!!
I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF OR SEEN ANOTHER 62
GRAND PRIX THAT HAS HAD ALL THIS WORK DONE.
OTHER “RESTO MODS” I HAVE SEEN WITH THIS TYPE
OF LS CONVERSIONS IN THE WANT ADS ARE RUNNING
IN THE HIGH 50 TO 60 THOUSAND RANGE.
IF YOU ARE SERIOUSLY INTERESTED, CALL ME,
BUT I’M TELLING YOU NOW THERE IS NOT A LOT OF
ROOM FOR NEGOTIATION ON THE PRICE. AND I’M
NOT INTERESTED IN A TRADE. Call Frank @ 508-
364-1132 , Please no Txt Msgs,
