Front end view of Lody's 1969 GTO. Picture #4. Lody says. "
Just letting you know I still like your site, I've just had a look at it. I still own the GTO and have been driving it regularly untill last autumn when I decided to start with a small restoration. The car isn't too bad. Only the engine looks like sh*t but drives superb and the car needs a paintjob. I already have worked on the interior. I bought a complete new interior at Year One (front seat covers, rear bench covers, carpet, in fact everything except the dash which is badly cracked and the door panels which were in very good condition.) I already contacted Just Dashes - and restoring my dash costs about
$600 not including shipping and that's what makes it expensive! All and all it comes to $1000. WHHHOOOAAAGGGHH." CLICK->
Another set of 3 shots of Lody's 1969 GTO at a car show. Lody is starting a restoration on the car. He has some questions, "I'm starting with the engine. Here's where your experience is needed. I found out that the numbers aren't matching. My VIN code on the dash says 24237 9Z111396 and the stamped number on the engine says 0311116 YS. The date code on the intake is K218 (21 Nov. 1968?) heads are #62 with date code K298 (29 Nov. 1968?). I can't see the code on the
block itself because it's behind the distributor which I haven't removed yet. Question: Can YOU tell by the stamped code of the engine what we are dealing with here? Is it a GTO engine or what. I have heard that there are cases where the numbers do not necessarily have to match. True? The GTO was sold back in 69 at John Hine Pontiac in San Diego and they still exist. I have written them an e-mail telling them that I own a goat that was sold thru him in 69 and if he had any records of it left but they didn't respond so far. Strange? I hope you or someone you know can help me out here." CLICK->
Here is a dark-colored 1969 GTO (possibly green). It has different aluminum rims. The car also has the standard headlight setup with no hideaways. CLICK->
This 69 GTO is sitting in the hot desert. Hey! That's a Judge. It must have escaped from the Judge Lot. CLICK->
Reminds me of a Stormtrooper from Star Wars. Shiny white with black. CLICK->

Michael Margozzi (firstname.lastname@example.org) emailed this 1969 GTO in. It was being raced at the Fremont Raceway long ago. The California city of Fremont is the same one that once built GTOs. The Fremont Raceway is no longer in existence. CLICK->

Here's a comment from a recent visitor...
Says webruler.@lvcm.com - "I'm an old MOPAR mania guy, but I saw a program on the History Channel that covered the GTO's. Mainly 1964, and I just fell in love with the cars ! I will be visiting at least once a week while I search for one to call my own !"
