1969 GTO Hardtop Parking Lot
There's no bigger GTO image collection anywhere!
What a discovery! This GTO was found sitting in a lady's field. 19-year old Nick was lucky enough to find it. The car had been idle for 9 years. Nick spent 9 months restoring the car. He thinks it is making about 450 horsepower from its 400 cubic inch engine with the goodies he added. The car has some unusual dual stripes running down the hood.|

CLICK-> A site vistor is picking this white 1969 GTO hardtop out of this Kansas field for $75.00 He says it was originally green with a green interior, 4 speed, and no air conditioning. He needs the windshield and rear glass for his 69 GTO. The interior is all there but dry rotted very bad.

CLICK-> Doug Mathis from East Tennessee got this 1969 GTO hardtop from Florida along with a 1968 GTO convertible. Doug added, "It's a very rusty car that had or has: a/c, pdb, 3.23 Safe-T-trac, hide-a-ways, remote mirror, buckets and 4 speed pedals and a auto trans & console(?!). It is reputed to have been a 4-speed car by the person who had it in his backyard for years. There are many good parts on the car. The PHS package hasn't come back yet, but I intend to sell or part the car out when the info comes back. The Saf-T-trac will reside in a 69 convertible LeMans that I have. It's amazing what a wash and Rally IIs did for the car. Ambitious buyers feel free to inquire."
CLICK-> Here's a close up of the rear right fender.
CLICK-> Green 1969 GTO hardtop that could use some TLC. Andreq Kuncas tells the story, "This '69 sat in a barn in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania for over 20 years. It was sold to my friend for $2000 and he stored it in a different barn for a year then sold it for the same $2000. All it needed to go was a few tune up parts and it ran quite well! Its a 4-speed with original drivetrain, PDB, PS, original Rally IIs, buckets, console, hideaways, Limelight Green paint and dark green vinyl roof and interior. It had no a/c or instrumentation and about 135,000 miles. The car is now out of state after passing through another owner who began to restore it and then sold it."
CLICK-> Here's some shots of Jeremy Terpos's 1969 Custom S during it's restoraton. Jeremy lives in Southwick, Massachusetts. Here's what he had to say, "I am currently 21 years old and I bought this car three years ago my senior year in high school. It took me about 1 full year to do the restore, I had help from my friend Ken who knows a lot more about cars then me or anyone else that I know. She wasnít in that bad of shape when I bought her, just needed quarter panels, fender work, rocker panels, and some interior work. Originally it was white with a green vinyl top, but the vinyl was in bad shape so I just took it off. Engine work was minor, I didnít need to do anything to it, but I decided to put on an Edelbrock 4 barrel 650cfm carburetor and some valve covers. Currently Iím thinking of putting on the GTO spoiler and hood, but thatís for later on."
CLICK-> Looks like it had the typical rust areas: under the rear window, and the lower fenders.
