AutoHunter Spotlight: 1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible

A red Goat for grazing down the boulevard

-

Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this restored 1969 Pontiac GTO convertible. It is powered by a 400cid V8 backed by a three-speed automatic transmission. Features include power windows, console-shifted TH400 automatic, hidden headlights, and more. Finished in red with a power black convertible top over a gold vinyl interior, this Goat comes with a new convertible top boot and an Ontario (Canada) vehicle permit.

The restoration of this GTO was completed in 2021. Exterior features include non-functional scooped hood, optional hideaway headlights, dual sport mirrors, power-operated black convertible top, and power antenna.

A set of 16-inch replica Magnum 500 aluminum wheels with PMD center caps is wrapped in BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires.

The cabin is furnished with a gold vinyl interior featuring a pair of front buckets. Features include power windows, power steering, center console, left-hand remote mirror, and vintage-look AM/FM stereo with trunk-mounted Rockford Fosgate amplified and subwoofer.

The instrument panel consists of a 120-mph speedometer, fuel gauge, and warning lights for oil pressure, alternator, and water temperature. In addition, an aftermarket 8,000-mile tachometer has been elegantly inserted in the right-hand nacelle. A set of aftermarket gauges resides under the left-hand side underneath the dashboard. Odometer shows 89,690 miles.

The reportedly original 400cid V8 is topped by a single four-barrel carburetor. It is paired with a Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. Under-hood features include chrome valve covers, aluminum intake manifold, chrome air cleaner lid, and exhaust headers.

This Pontiac GTO was factory-equipped with an independent front suspension with solid rear-drive axle. Slowing to a crawl is handled by power brakes with discs up front. A dual exhaust system emits emissions underneath the rear bumper.

The auction for this restored 1969 Pontiac GTO convertible ends Monday, May 6, 2024 at 11:45 a.m. (PDT).

Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
