CLICK-> Red 1969 LeMans convertible, engine view. Michael says, "Despite the way it looks, it actually runs good. The fan shroud won't fit because the rigged in motor mounts make the engine sit too high. The fan cluch is shot, the valve covers leak, and the air cleaner is a joke. I've GOT to get to the salvage yard and get a regular air cleaner for it!"
CLICK-> Red 1969 LeMans convertible, hood paint view. Michael adds, "It keeps coming off every time I wash the car. Under the paint so far I've found blue, green, and yellow paint. As I said, this car is really a mutt!"
CLICK-> Red 1969 LeMans convertible, front left fender view. Michael comments, "Add one hood hinge to the list of "needs". The other one still pulls down correctly. Wonder what bargin-bin the old owner pulled the door mirrors out of. Those will be replaced VERY soon."
CLICK-> Red 1969 LeMans convertible, left side view with top part up (or is it part down). Michael says, "Amazing, but yes it still works!"
CLICK-> Red 1969 LeMans convertible, interior view. This LeMans has bucket seats and a center console. Michael continues, "Ugly tach, wrong steering wheel, dash is shot and MY LORD the carpet!! BUT the seats are still good."
CLICK-> Red 1969 LeMans convertible, passenger door panel. Michael adds, "Ugly carpet and speakers, but at least the radio sounds good. These were good panels. The red fuzzy carpet will not be there much longer."
CLICK-> Red 1969 LeMans convertible, dash view. Michael says, The Rally clock will go into the far left instrument pod.
CLICK-> Red 1969 LeMans convertible, interior view. Michael adds, "The seats are actually in great shape. That Morrokide was tough stuff."
CLICK-> Red 1969 LeMans convertible, right front view. Michael comments, "Still a sharp old car for a rust-bucket. Uniform body gaps, No. Not one panel lines up."
CLICK-> Red 1969 LeMans convertible, front end rocker panel view. You can see the emblem that indicates the car was originally O.H.C. That stands for OverHead Cam. Michael says, "Sprint 6 - just kidding. Anybody want to trade me some 350 emblems?"
CLICK-> There's one on the other side too. Michael concludes, "I'd never seen these emblems before. From what I understand, the Sprint was the 4bbl in-line 6. Or the "sporty" 6-cylinder. That motor is long gone."
CLICK-> Blue 1969 LeMans convertible owned by Gordon Geesey from Frederick, Maryland. This blue is called LeMans Blue which is a Chevy color. This was our Picture Of The Week for 4/18/04. Gordon tells us, "It was originally purchased as a 'Judge clone' project, but the car was just too nice to butcher. It is more rare than a GTO convertible. This car sports a 400HO engine, Turbo 400 transmission, 3.36 posi, A/C, P/S, power disc brakes, bucket seats, Rally clock, power trunk release, power top, Rally II rims, remote mirror, and an AM/FM radio. Now it's just babied and driven in nice weather."
CLICK-> Fredrik Söder from Stockholm Sweden sends us this picture of his blue 1969 GTO hardtop. This was our Picture Of The Week for 4/25/04. Fredrik comments, "Well, one has to be a boy sometimes..." You can see more pictures of this car by clicking here.
CLICK-> Iris Mist 1969 GTO convertible seen at the 2004 GTOAA International Convention. This was our Picture Of The Week for 7/25/04. We have a whole lot of pictures from the 2004 GTOAA Convention.
