Vehicle Description

This is a 1969 Pontiac GTO restoration project. My objective was to build a bulletproof, no-corners-cut 1969 GTO. 

The original car was a partial restoration which has been fully disassembled for a frame-off.

Everything was taken down to the metal. Frame and body were bead blasted. Old trunk pan was cut out and replaced. Frame was powder coated.

Underside, interior, and trunk pan were coated with anti-rust encapsulation (similar to this

Body mounted back on the frame with new body mounts.

Show-quality welding, bodywork, and paint done by Best In Show. (There is a slight scratch on the passenger side roof that happened during storage.) They also professionally fitted the doors, trunk, and fenders back on to the body. (The paint and associated work was $10,000 after the "family discount" -- I have receipts for this and also photos of the car with the team that did the work.) 

Frame and body now sitting on a Global West Cat-5 performance suspension and brake kit (GW sells this package for around $4800 - zero miles have been put on any of these parts):

  • QA-1 Front Adjustable Shocks 
  • A-Body Rear Frame Supports 
  • Front Upper Negative Roll Control Arms 
  • Front Lower Negative Roll Control Arms 
  • Front Sway Bar 1 1/8 Inch 
  • Category 5 Brake Kit C5-1175-4 
  • Rear Upper Adjustable Tubular Control Arm 
  • Wilwood Dynalite Pro Rear Brake Kit 

New tires and rims installed: 

  • American Racing Torq Thrust II front and back
  • BF Goodrich g-Force T/A KDWS 245/45 ZR17 95W up front
  • BF Goodrich g-Force T/A Drag Radials 275 / 40R17 in back

Also installed, the stock diff was replaced with a Ford 9 rear:

  • Moser Ford 9 Inch Rear, Alloy 31 Spline Axles, Nodular Case 
  • 3.89 TrueTrack Wormgear Diff (913A328?) 

Not yet installed is a Hughes TH400 transmission. This was a replacement transmission that was installed just prior to the start of the current restoration and was driven on. The label has rubbed off but it was an auto, so I’m  guessing this is a 34-1B

Parts for the new engine are included, ready for assembly:

  • New AllPontiac IA II Block (4.345 bore, still have cylinder wall thickness report - these blocks retail for around $3200) 
  • Scat Forged Crankshaft 4.5” Stroke 
  • Rear Main Seal 
  • Windage Tray and Crank Scraper Kit, 
  • Cast Valley Pan 
  • Oil Pump Pickup 
  • Canton racing oil pan 
  • Scat H Beam Rod Set With Bolt 6.800 length, .990 Wrist Pin Bushed .992 2.200 Pin Dia. / .992 Big End 
  • JE Rings 4.355 bore 
  • JE Flat Top Street Pistons 
  • Indian Adventures Lite Weight Mini Starter 
  • Hughes transmission cooler HP8235 

Included is the motor from the first restoration. This was a 400 IA II block also (so a second $3200 retail engine block), built out by Indian Adventures. Originally, it dyno-ed above 500. However, some parts were replaced to make it easier to drive off the track (primarily, a less lumpy cam). This engine still turned over when it was removed for the frame-off but it did have some variety of mechanical failure. I intended to replace the motor, so did not tear this one down to determine exactly what had gone wrong. I do not have a build sheet, but can see the Edlebrock Performer RPM cylinder heads, Holley four barrel carb (belive it is a 4779-7 750 CFM), and Edlebrock Performer RPM manifold. 

Included are all the remaining original parts. Some of the original components have been sold (including the original seats and wheels). Everything that remains will be included with the vehicle.

A few miscellaneous components are also included:

  • Ames Performance Body and Core Support Mount Set 
  • Ames Performance Body and Core Support Hardware Kit 
  • Painless wiring kit
  • Shrink sleeves 
  • Judge decal kit (it is not a real Judge)
  • Manifold vacuum gauge
  • Energy Suspension transmission mount
  • Anchor 2255 motor mounts
  • Front end bolt kit
  • New radiator core support

Included are some tools purchased for the restoration:

  • Larin 2 ton engine hoist
  • Craftsman 919167312 air compressor 150 psi / 33 gallon / 6HP 

Car is titled. Also have a Pontiac Historic Services packge on the car.

I’ve done my best to identify and catalog everything included and provide links but there’s certainly a chance that I’ve misidentified something. I’m happy to take additional pics or allow someone to examine any portion of this.

I have been working on this car for a long time, wish I could continue, and am only attempting to sell it now because I need to pay for family medical expenses.
