1969 Pontiac GTO If you were to make a list of iconic muscle cars, that list certainly couldn't be considered complete before adding in the classic Pontiac GTO. With their dual open front grills and pointed front nose, Pontiac created a look that was all their own. In fact, one Pontiac exec involved in the GTO was John Delorean who would later go on to add many more important cars to automobile history. The 1969 GTO is a nicely built car that gets a ton of attention. It is nicely painted in a Matador Red and is fitted with all of the original style trim and chrome. This year had the hideaway headlights which are working properly. The car rides on the original style wheels wrapped with BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires. Powering the car is the original numbers matching 400 cubic inch 350hp motor. A majority of the components are painted the original Pontiac Blue but it has chrome valve covers on each side. The motor is backed with an automatic transmission that shifts smoothly. Power brakes are in place and stop the car with no issues. The interior of the car is finished out in White Parchment which matches the convertible top. The upholstery all looks great except for a tear at the base of the drivers side seat. Dual bucket seats are up front and both front and rear have seat belts. The carpeting and dash is complete in Black with the original style woodgrain trim pieces. The original console runs between the seats and houses the shifter and a compartment for storage. The dash has been kept looking all original except for the additional gauge pod for water, volt and oil. The original AM/FM factory radio has been modified with an MP3 attachment. The trunk of the car is finished out as well and houses the spare wheel with original jack set up. People love the GTO and one cruise around the block in this classic will quickly confirm that for you. It turns heads wherever it goes. Make this goat yours for $36,000.00!
