We can tell there was a lot invested in making this 1969 Pontiac GTO look so good. Packaged with period correct features and the original 400ci V8, it's handsome, fast, comfortable, and intimidating... all the elements that make the GTO a timeless legend. With all the optional luxuries, including AC, multiple national awards, and tons of documents, you know you have a winner on your hands.
The subtle code-40 Mayfair Maize hardtop and black vinyl roof give this a premium vintage appearance that could pass for a simple cool cruiser. In fact, the level of investment that went into the paint and new top might just stun people into momentarily believing that this is only a well-restored luxury cruiser. The body panels remain straight, the rear chrome bumper is shiny & complete, and the Endura front bumper continues to look correct & color-matched. Of course you won't be able to keep up this ruse too long. The correct G-T-O badges that inspire fear in lesser cars are present on each side and easily seen. Plus, the optional hideaway headlights, hood scoops, and Rally II wheels with the PMD (Pontiac Motor Division) center cap remind everyone who is really king.
The factory-correct parchment bucket seat interior is quite inviting with nicely detailed seat covers that showcase the always-interesting Pontiac design motif. Plus, the woodgrain paneling on the center console and dash further this upscale feeling. Of course you want to drive your classic so the thick black carpeting and floor mats mean you don't have to take off your shoes before hopping in for a ride. You get the Pontiac three-spoke steering wheel, and just ahead of that is a tri-pod round gauge design with the speedometer prominently in the middle. As you look out over the driver-oriented controls, this highly original coupe reminds you of what a premium Pontiac looked like back in the day. But while this looks like a time capsule, the modern R134a air conditioning will keep you cool like no '60s machine ever could.
One look at the 400 cubic inch V8, and you're again reminded this GTO is all about honesty and originality. It wears the correct Pontiac Turquoise paint with pride, and it sports a chrome air cleaner lid and valve covers (after all, Pontiac knew its customers would be showing off their engine bay.) Best of all, this 1969-correct YS block is the original motor. Pontiac rated the big V8 at 350 hp right out of the box, and there's an added kick from an Edelbrock intake and four-barrel carburetor (the original intake is part of a host of spare components that come with sale.) And no matter how you decide to run this V8, the sweet rumble of the dual exhaust let's everyone know you have serious power under the hood. This one handles its performance nicely thanks to the stout TH400 three-speed automatic that sends power to the 10-bolt rear end. Plus, handling is done right with power steering, disc brakes up front, and BF Goodrich rubber at all four corners.
This GTO comes with a ton of documentation, including the dealer invoice, build sheet, original bill of sale, reproduction window sticker, build receipts, restoration photos, and Pontiac Historic Services (PHS) paperwork, so you can show everyone all the authentic pieces. Such a well-assembled package is surely to win awards and surely won't stay around here long. Call today!!!
