Classic Car Overview
1969 Pontiac GTO $59,000
Independently appraised by MotorTech, Classic Motor Vehicle Appraiser’s on 27 July 2018 for $82,000.00. Selling $23K less for immediate sale. Check out this impressive description of this gorgeous GTO. Purchase and own your dream!
Why buy this GTO as opposed to another?
1. Engine: There isn’t a GTO listed with the bullet proof Butler Performance IAII block with 4 bolt mains, steel forged rods and crank. Hence, every GTO has the weak stock 50 year old cast iron rods and crankshafts, so plan on a catastrophic engine failure.
2. Power: Most GTOs have a stock 400. Fair engine, but understand it won’t keep up with a new Mustang, Camaro or Challenger. Eventually you will want more power.
3. Transmission: Know the standard Turbo 400 or 4 speed will keep you at 60 mph on the freeway. If you want to drive 75 like everyone else you’ll need an 700R4 with overdrive.
4. Handling: The stock 1960s engineered suspension is terrible, especially with turning. If you want a smooth ride and no body sway, this Hotchkis Sport suspension is perfect.
5. Appearance: Most GTOs listed have the discount paint job that looks good for two years. The $20K PPG base/clear paint is incredibly beautiful and will last indefinitely based on how it’s kept.
6. Quietness: The sound deadening used throughout keeps the interior quiet. Most GTOs don’t have any sound deadening material.
7. Details: Are the 50 year old hood hinges reconditioned? Is the undercarriage 100% rust free? ARP bolts used? The best IAII block or stock block? Any trunks loaded with $500 new spare? Most go cheap.
8. Cool: The A/C in a stock GTO doesn’t suffice. The 360 ceramic window tinting, Dynamat and aftermarket A/C makes a big difference. Most likely you won’t find any of these premium items in your stock GTO.
9. Documentation: Is the GTO you’re interested in have its paperwork in a $200 custom leather binder with the history, original documentation, appraisal, PHS information, receipts, dyno DVD/print outs, two sets of new keys, professionally taken 8X10 photos, videos, original owners manual, etc? Just say no.
10. Finished: This GTO is ready to enjoy. All of the previously mentioned things will eventually irritate you and require big $$$ and lots of patience to change. I’d put this GTO up against any other listed and feel very confident about coming on top - across the board.
General: The first time my GTO has been put up for sale in 32 years. Never raced - just TLC. Full-Frame on restoration just completed. Built in Freemont CA and purchased with 106K miles. Documented by Pontiac Historical Society, VIN 242379Z120811 (2=Pontiac Division, 42=GTO, 37=2 Door Hardtop, 9=Model Year, Z=Plant Location: Fremont CA, 120811=Sequence Number). This GTO was maintained/restored for long-term dependability and after three decades of ownership this classic is DIALED-IN. Runs strong and drives exceedingly well. All modifications, especially aftermarket items installed, were researched to ensure they exceeded factory specifications and added to the driving experience. Even though a sizeable investment was dedicated towards the appearance inside and out, it was not the top priority. A lot was invested to improve the mechanical strength, dependability and quality, as opposed to many muscle car owners that focus on appearance, For example, instead of slapping on the functional hood hinges with some new paint, I opted to have them reconditioned by YearOne were larger pins were installed for smooth operation, springs were tested and sandblasted for around $350. This is one of hundreds of details that make this Goat stand out from the rest of the herd.
Body: The sheet metal is solid and 100% rust free with being kept in SOCAL. Freshly painted the original color of Liberty Blue with PPG base/clear coat during February 2018. The Judge style stripes and GTO emblems are painted - not vinyl stickers. Stripes added to match the graphite and aluminum colors in the wheels. Restoration included: Stripping to bare metal; Removing/reconditioning/painting the insides of the front fenders; Doors were removed and jams cleaned and painted; New Year One Endura rubber front bumper installed; Rockers were coated with a rubber guard to protect against chipping; New grills and moldings; New windshield and rear window glass; All glass (less windshield with a clear ceramic coat) tinted 35% ceramic coat that protects and keeps the interior cool. Gaps and fit are excellent, finish is impeccable. Undercarriage is very impressive and rust free, but could use a light cleaning.
Engine: The 505 c.i. was built by the absolute best Pontiac engine builders in the country, Butler Performance (https://butlerperformance.com) , includes: The strongest aftermarket Pontiac cast block IAII 505 c.i./8.2 liter (http://www.allpontiac.com/standard.html), Eagle steel forged crank and rods; Kaufmann Racing Engineering D-port aluminum heads ported/polished; CompCams roller cam, push rods, lifters, rockers; Edelbrock Performer RPM intake; Holley 870 Street Avenger with vacuum secondaries; K&N air filter; Meziere HD electric water pump; ARP bolts. There are roughly 3K miles on engine since installed. Runs very clean - no hesitation - no fuel odor coming from exhaust. Has a minor oil drip from rear main.
Note: Dyno was documented and filmed at Butler Performance resulting in a conservative 492 h.p. and 603 ft. lbs. torque at flywheel. Engine built to deliver power throughout the entire RPM range, yet be very driveable in the city and freeway.
Exhaust: Doug's ceramic coated headers with titanium exhaust wrap; 3" aluminum coated exhaust pipes; Flowmaster mufflers. Very quiet freeway/cruising, but releases impressive performance and sound with acceleration.
Drive Train: 4 speed automatic 700R4 overdrive transmission and torque converter built by Oceanside Transmission; Shiftworks neutral safety switch/detent/indicator to maintain the stock appearance in the console; Chevrolet 12 bolt limited slip with new 3:55 Richmond gears.
Interior: Solid floor boards were prepared with RustOleum paint; Dynomat sound-deadening underlayment; New carpeting; New front/rear door panels; New kick panels; Graphite steering wheel; Factory seats; Custom console incorporates Stewart Warner water temperature, oil pressure and voltage gauges; Dashboard reconditioned by JustDashes; Classic Auto Air conditioning system. The air conditioning system, coupled with the wrapped headers, underlayment and tinted windows make for a very comfortable driving experience.
Electrical: M&H Engine and headlight electrical harnesses; Professionally installed BeCool dual radiator fans; Air conditioning; Dashboard electrical, Ignition lock-out security system; Remote battery disconnect switch; MSD billet drop-in distributor and ignition system; Nology Spark Plug HotWires. Also, under the dash is very clean with most harnesses neatly labeled. All major and minor electrical items, to include the glovebox light, work perfectly.
Suspension/Brakes: All wheel Master Power Brakes disc brake system; Hotchkis Sport tubular front and rear suspension/anti-sway/control arms/with 1" lowering springs provide a soft ride with firm performance.
Wheels/Tires: Wheels Year One 17X9" billet aluminum Rally II's are paired with Bridgestone Potenza Ultra High Performance 255/40R/R17 tires. Trunk spare includes the same wheel/tire with a bottle jack and lug wrench. The 17” wheels are perfect match for the suspension and deliver excellent performance combination.
