1969 GTO Hardtop Parking Lot
There's no bigger GTO image collection anywhere!
Orange 1969 GTO hardtop owned by Tom McQuary from Porterville, California. This car has a orange flames painted on it. The entire front grille is also painted body color. Tom tells us more, "We bought it in 1999. We got three motors, two set of aluminum wheels, and a bunch of extra parts all for $600.00. We bought it from a farmer that was wearing bib overalls and barefoot. If he would step on a cocklebur he just pick it out and keep on walking. I hate to think of how much we have in it now."|
CLICK-> Close-up of the flames on the door. The flames go from an orange, to yellow, to blue at the tips.
CLICK-> Orange 1969 GTO hardtop with flames, right rear view. The rear bumper and taillights are also painted orange.
CLICK-> Here is a peek inside. It has orange fuzzy dice. The dash must have been recovered. There are nice blanks over the air vent holes and the spot where the radio goes is nice and smooth. It has no heater controls.
CLICK-> Matador Red 1969 GTO hardtop owned by Bob Rollans from Blackwood, New Jersey. Bob adds, "I found this car in 2001 almost done. It has 4 speed M-21 transmission, Ram Air, hideaway headlights, spoiler, hood tach, and Rally gauges."
CLICK-> The engine is a 1969 400ci with 670 heads and a Ram Air 4 cam.
CLICK-> The interior is black in color.
CLICK-> Limelight Green 1969 GTO hardtop. He tells us more, "My wife purchased the car as a gift for me. It came to me silver with a black vinyl top. It has the original 4-speed Muncie, with a 71 Pontiac GP motor. Since ownership, I have changed the color back to the original Limelight Green. A frame-on restoration is in progress. The car had very little rust and was begging for some TLC. I recently purchased a 69 GTO motor for the vehicle which is being rebuilt and will be installed sometime in 2008."
CLICK-> Limelight Green 1969 GTO hardtop, left rear view. Green was a very popular color back in 1969. Three green paint colors were available in 1969. This is the lightest of the three.

CLICK-> Rear end view of a negative 1969 GTO hardtop.
CLICK-> 1969 GTO hardtop owned by Jack Rollans from Blackwood, New Jersey. Jack had this story to share, "I bought this car in 2001. The car was in pieces but body was good. It still has same paint on it from when I got it. I put the spoiler, hood tach, and Ram Air on it. I was going to copy the 69 4-speed Antique Gold Ram Air 4 WW code car I had back in the 70s. I watched it go through the crusher were I worked. I junked it there. It was only in the yard for 6 months! The boss's son in-law put it in the crusher to aggravate me. That was in 1979. I found all the Ram Air parts in my mom's garage and put them on this car. I put the spoiler and hood tach on it like the gold one had. I can't seem to make up my mind about painting it. This was originally a Matador Red 4-speed car! Maybe I'll make a Matador Red Judge? I don't know what color red it is now."
It appears to be Carousel Red - at least judging from the second picture in Jack's set.
CLICK-> Carousel Red 1969 GTO hardtop, right rear view. This GTO has an interesting pinstripe along the front fender and door top edge. It follows the lines of the 1969 Judge stripes. There is also a set of pinstripes on the hood - similar to the Ram Air V paint scheme.
CLICK-> Front end view with the hood open. The pinstripes continue out onto the nose of the car.
