DESCRIPTION

1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible



The Pontiac GTO became known as "The Goat" due to an interpretation of the letters that make up its name. Figuratively speaking, the car's "defiant, stripped-to-the-basics personality" also had a hand in cementing the moniker, according to Edmunds.com. It is speculated that the acronym GTO, which stands for Gran Turismo Omologato, was taken from the Ferrari 250 GTO. American consumers have a history of shortening the names of cars with multiple syllables, and this likely influenced the nickname of this Pontiac brand. "The Goat" is catchy, easy to remember and was essentially born out of convenience.



For consignment this drop top muscle car in very nice condition and from a desirable year, a "Goat" which is more like a wolf in sheep's clothing, runs like a deer and the looks of a beautiful bird. Let the sun shine in baby!



Exterior

For 1969 GM tweaked the GTO's one year old redesign with a number of detail changes and subtle refinements. At the front of the car, Pontiac's familiar stainless trimmed twin grilles hang dual headlights and a pristine white "GTO" script behind a revolutionary Endura bumper. Below that bumper, the car's curved front valance features revised and more aggressive parking lights; and above that bumper, a sculpted hood with Pontiac's legendary 'twin nostril' air intakes. Behind those intakes, like-new glass is bordered by an attractive layer of bright stainless trim and a correct chrome driver's side mirror. Below that mirror, expressive 'coke bottle' fenders are highlighted by dent-free stainless wheel well trim, straight stainless rocker moldings and traditional chrome door handles. On the front fenders, white inlaid "GTO" scripts add just the right amount of flash to the car's slick red paint. On the back fenders, '68-era arrowhead marker lights have been exchanged for V shaped "GTO" branded units. At the back of the car, a show worthy chrome bumper hangs showroom fresh taillights between spotless stainless exhaust tips and a black "GTO" trunk emblem. This is all topped by a black convertible canvas which has a glass rear window. 15-inch Pontiac Rally II wheels are on all 4 corners.



Interior

Take a look inside this A-Body's airy cockpit and you'll find a snazzy correct black interior. Front and center a straight and crack-free dash wears bright, engine-turned trim below fresh wood applique and original gauges. On the floor, an original His and Hers shifter sits between the two beautifully sculpted bucket front seats and the center console. At the sides of those seats, stainless-trimmed door panels hang red-inlaid "GTO" emblems above fresh hardware and pliable armrests. Below those panels, clean carpet frames chrome-trimmed foot pedals in front of heavy duty floor mats. In front of the driver, what looks like to be the original wood rimmed steering wheel spins around a Pontiac branded horn button. Behind the passengers, an original trunk hides a correct mat and full-size spare tire as well as a bumper jack. Also, a nice tonneau cover, in matching black comes with the car.



Drivetrain

A 1969 numbers matching 400ci L-67 V8 steel blue painted GTO/Firebird Block with chromed valve covers, #62 heads, and topped by single 4-barrel carburetor circa 1970-1975. A TH400 3-speed automatic is behind the mill and shifts through the gears flawlessly. On the back is a 10-bolt rear axle.



Undercarriage

Give this car a lift and we are met with independent front suspension and 4-link rear suspension. Power disc brakes up front, and power drums on the rear, bring it to a quick halt. Dual exhaust with turbo mufflers snakes its way from the mill back through a clean and rust free frame, floor pans, rockers, and inner fenders.



Drive-Ability

We had some fun test driving this well restored car on our test track. A new top and frame along with an up and down mechanism that worked flawlessly. Despite it being cold we put the top down and did our test. It had snappy acceleration, good handling, and bias free panic stopping. It handles very well, and all functions save for the backup lights worked as they should.



Overall a very nice example of the 69 Goat/GTO. Runs great, shifts smoothly, and is a looker to boot. Loud was the voice of the lonely goatherd Lay ee... odl lay e e..

odl-oo..Ho!
