The 1969 Pontiac GTO remains one of the fiercest names in muscle cars, which is why we are always happy to see such an original coupe that looks so good, sounds so mean, and still available at an exceptional value.
The subtle and factory-correct code 59 Limelight Green hardtop, and black vinyl roof give this a premium vintage appearance that could pass for a simple cool cruiser. Of course you might not be able to keep this car incognito for too long. The correct G-T-O badges that inspire fear in lessor cars are present and easily seen. Plus, the hood scoops and Rally II wheels with the PMD (Pontiac Motor Division) center cap remind everyone who is really king. But this real-deal GTO does more than just get the details right. It’s highly original and you can see how well it has been cared for over the last 45+ years by the way the body panels remain straight, the rear chrome bumper is shiny & complete, and the Endura front bumper continues to look correct & color-matched.
Inside, the interior shows more sings that this car has remained quite faithful to factory specs. The black vinyl interior looks excellent, and it carries all the great original badging and trim on places like the door panels and seats. The front bench is something we find pretty cool. Most people opted for the bucket option or updated it later in life. So it’s not only a symbol that this GTO retains its original “let’s get down to business” attitude, but also this is something rare the guys at the car shows really respect. We’ll also remind you that the bench makes it comfortable to carry more family and friends, which is a good thing in a coupe that also comes with provisions for air conditioning. But like any good GTO, the best treats are reserved for the driver. You get the Pontiac three-spoke steering wheel, and just ahead of that is a tri-pod gauge design with the speedometer prominently in the middle. As you look out over the driver-oriented controls, this highly original coupe reminds you of what a premium Pontiac looked like back in the day.
One look at the 400 cubic inch V8, and you’re again reminded this GTO is all about honesty and originality. It wears the correct Pontiac Turquoise paint with pride, and it sports a chrome air cleaner lid and valve covers (after all, Pontiac knew its customers would be showing off their engine bay.) Best of all, this 1969-correct YS block shows plenty of signs of being the original motor. Pontiac rated this big V8 at 350 hp right out of the box, and everyone will certainly hear it thanks to the sweet rumble of the dual exhaust. This one handles its performance nicely thanks to the stout TH400 three-speed automatic that sends power to the 10-bolt rear end. Plus, handling is done right with power steering, disc brakes up front, and Firestone Firehawk rubber at all four corners.
This is a real-deal GTO that has a time capsule-like appearance in its correct colors and outstanding V8, factory build sheet and PHS documents. This one is the kind of fun Pontiac you just get in, take out, and get oohs and ahhs with. So hurry up and grab this before someone else gets wise on this American muscle. Call now!
