We recently purchased a 1969 Pontiac GTO and when we got the title back it states LeMans!
We have verified the VIN# and it is definitely a GTO. It is a 242379B. Why does the title state LeMans? How do i get this changed on the title. The tag office doesn't seem to get it.

Depending on what state you are in the rules are going to be different from another states policy.

Me personally I wouldn’t worry too much about it. As long as the Body and Trim tag state it’s a GTO (model #) and a quick run of the VIN through PHS pulls up as a 1969 GTO then you have nothing to worry about.

Have you ordered any PHS documents on the car yet? There are loads of cases in the world of people swapping body tags from wrecked GTO's. Not saying yours is one of those cases but I would recommend ordering PHS documents on any Pontiac before buying.

The term "GTO" is a trim package. Just like "Super Sport" or "442". The states don't recognize these as the car model. They go by the base level model name. Hence, a 1965 Impala Super Sport, is just an Impala.

I thought in 1964,65 only the GTO was an option on the Lemans, but then went on in the following years to become a model of its own, GTO and Lemans were seperate model numbers?

if the vin doesnt start by 242 then you overpayed and its not a real gto
