The GTO remains one of the most popular muscle cars of all time.
Pontiac introduced the concept in 1964 and we thank them for it.
Pontiac based the second gen GTO on the mid-size Lemans chassis and
then added a potent V-8, suspension upgrades and GTO body visual
enhancements. The second-gen GTO was somewhat larger than the
original, but a much better all-around car. According to the VIN,
this 1969 hardtop is a '42 code' factory GTO. The current owner
performed a full restoration over the past 4 years and a furnished
binder provides a comprehensive record of the restoration. (It also
includes copies of the original window sticker and factory
production build sheet.) The Crystal Turquoise Poly (original
color/code 55) 2-stage paint was professionally applied. There are
three base coats w/pearl and multiple coats of clear. Exterior
enhancements include accent strips, dual hood scoops, a rear-deck
spoiler, 'GTO' trim and Pontiac Rally II wheels w/Cooper Cobra
radials. The Parchment vinyl bucket seat interior has been fully
restored back-to-original (2018) and is in very good condition. The
factory gauge package in this GTO was very basic - analog gauges
and tachometer were optional in '69 - and a set of iEquus gauges
have been added. All window glass is factory 'Soft Ray' tinted and
a Kraco AM/FM/cassette stereo system plays your tunes. Under the
hood is a rebuilt (2017) Pontiac 400cid motor factory rated at
350hp and 455 lb/ft. It appears to have been built to stock specs
and sounds just like it should. The 400 is fitted with an Edelbrock
4V carb, an aluminum radiator and is backed by a 3-speed Turbo
HydraMatic transmission. The chassis is equipped with power
steering and manual drum brakes. The current owner is ready to pass
this beautiful Goat on to the next lucky caretaker. If you purchase
this authentic '42 code' GTO you will not go wrong. ALL VEHICLES
SOLD "AS IS".
