1969 GTO undergoing a restoration by owner Steve Barker. Here's what Steve had to say, "The pictures show an alternative way to do a frame off resto. This method keeps everything straight while working on the vehicle and is a spacesaver. The spacers are 1-1/4 electrical EMT with 7/16 wash end. A piece of 7/16 threaded rod and a nut secures the frame to the body. Nicknamed it the Mountain Goat. You can situp under the vehicle to do the undercarraige, the spacers are 18 inches long." CLICK->
Here's a closeup of those spacers that Steve used on his 1969 GTO restoration. CLICK->
1969 GTO owned by Jody. Here's what Jody had to say, "I've been visiting your site for a year now, and I finally found a GTO for my very own. When I inquired with a guy at work about a GTO he had for sale, he informed that it was a 69 GTO, 400, 330hp, th400 car with a trashed interior. When I asked him how much, he said "$1000." My jaw dropped and my heart raced. I left work early just to go see it and bought it that weekend. Here are some pics of my "project" GTO as she sat for the last 3yrs." CLICK->

Vintage picures of Steve Vankirk's Carousel Red 1969 GTO hardtop. Steve had this story to share, "I purchased it April 1974 from Sabia's Auto Exchange in Poughkeepsie, New York. This car never hit the lot, since I spotted it at a local body shop having a minor dent repaired on it's hood scoop. Had to have it, instantaneous
affliction, spent all my money! The original owner special ordered this freaky sleeper to be a Judge but not look like a Judge. It was in Carousel Red, but no stripes, no Ram Air package, it had just a bench seat and an automatic gearshift on the column. Even the speedo went only to 120. But I didn't care! Still, the simple dash layout and two tone black and white interior was a knockout. Just a note...the exhaust ports were siamesed, so definitely not a Ram air IV, however when I had the idea to block the heat risers to lower intake temps for performance gain, this engine needed the ram air gaskets which have taller intake ports. This GTO was truly a fast street car, never lost a race with this one, excitement factor way up there with those instantaneous turbo hydramatic 400 shifts. Check out the lady in
the seventies minidress, she's my MOM!!!!" PICTURE SET CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE ...

Says Greg Tuggle (XXtremePlayer.@AOL.COM) - "The G.T.O. is the Holy Grail of car ownership. I've never seen one except at shows, and with any luck, I'll own one before the end of the world."
