1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible YZ Ram Air Engine
Why This Car Is Special
The original Pontiac GTO is an automobile that was built by Pontiac
from 1964 to 1974 model years.
The first generation GTO was a muscle car of the 1960s and 1970s
era. Although there were earlier muscle cars, the Pontiac GTO is
considered by some to have started the trend with all four domestic
automakers offering a variety of competing models.

General Motors redesigned its A-body lines or these series of GTO's
with more curvaceous, semi-fastback styling.
Pontiac abandoned the familiar vertically stacked headlights in
favor of a horizontal layout, but made hidden headlights available
at extra cost which ours has.
The concealed headlights were a popular option. The signature hood
scoop was replaced by dual scoops on either side of a prominent
hood bulge extending rearward from the protruding nose.
A unique feature on our GTO was the body-color Endura front bumper.
It was designed to absorb impact without permanent deformation at
low speeds. Pontiac touted this feature heavily in advertising,
showing hammering at the bumper to no discernible effect.
Concealed windshield wipers, which presented a cleaner appearance
hidden below the rear edge of the hood, were standard on this GTO
