CLICK-> Extra parts off the car are in the trunk.
CLICK-> Rear is dented so that the trunk doesn't close too well.
CLICK-> Many items missing from the interior. Looks like the drivetrain is gone.
CLICK-> Carousel Red 1969 GTO hardtop owned by Chris Huffer from Kennedyville, Maryland. Chris tells us, "I bought this car in July of 2003. I did full frame off restoration on it. It took me five years. I enjoyed every minute of it!"
CLICK-> Chris's Carousel Red 1969 GTO hardtop at a local car show.
CLICK-> Chris's Carousel Orange 1969 GTO hardtop at a car show back in 10/26/06.
CLICK-> Matador Red 1969 Ram Air III GTO hardtop owned by Knut Torgersen from Mysen, Norway. Knut says, "It sold new in Sweden. It got to Norway in 2000. I bought it in 2005. Not too many of these around. Lots of new parts, new paint in 2005, rebuilt the engine and the rear end. It has YZ engine, 16 heads, and the rear is 3.36"
CLICK-> Green 1969 GTO being restored by Bill from Howell, New Jersey. In 2008, Bill tells us more, "I bought this Goat from a guy in Washington. He planned on restoring it, but decided to sell it after sitting in his garage for about ten years. I guess he just didn't have any spare time to fix her up. This GTO has original floor pans and all metal was in great shape. There was just a couple of rusted out small spots on lower front and rear quarters, where I welded in new metal patch panels. The interior was in fair condition but the original dashboard was in beautiful condition. I installed a hood tach. The motor is a 400 with a TH400 automatic transmission. The motor will have a few mods. The Rally wheels have been completely restored to original condition. A fresh paint job will take place. Basically, this GTO will be totally restored except for removal of the body off of the frame as it really wasn't necessary. I did replace all the body and suspension bushings. Just about the entire suspension front and rear has been restored. I have about another year before it will be completed. I've already owned it three years. I just love this GTO and am very proud to own it."
CLICK-> Another shot of the interior. There is matching woodgrain on the dash, extra gauge set, and center console. The woodgrain center consoles came with automatic cars.
CLICK-> The seat covers appear to be new.
CLICK-> Bill is rebuilding the 400ci engine. He's making a couple of modifications over stock.
CLICK-> One nice looking Maroon 1969 LeMans hardtop owned by George Scott from Orwell, Ohio. George comments, "These pictures were taken during the Norwalk Event of 2008. This is a 20,000 mile car with a 350HO. These pictures were taken by son when Tom from High Perfromance Magazine was taking pictures for an article."
CLICK-> Maroon 1969 LeMans hardtop, left rear view.
CLICK-> Maroon 1969 LeMans hardtop, right side view. I hope the parking brake is set!
CLICK-> Purple 1969 GTO hardtop owned by Tony Oliveira. I has an elaborate goat image air brushed on the hood - check out the other shots. Under the hood is a big 537ci Pontiac engine. Tony adds, "The car has been a 9.06 @ 150mph so far, but there is a lot more to come."
