Classic Car Overview
1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible The Pontiac GTO became known as The Goat due to an interpretation of the letters that make up its name. Figuratively speaking, the cars defiant, stripped-to-the-basics personality also had a hand in cementing the moniker, according to Edmunds.com. It is speculated that the acronym GTO, which stands for Gran Turismo Omologato, was taken from the Ferrari 250 GTO. American consumers have a history of shortening the names of cars with multiple syllables, and this likely influenced the nickname of this Pontiac brand. The Goat is catchy, easy to remember and was essentially born out of convenience. For consignment, this droptop muscle car in very nice condition and from a desirable year, a Goat which is more like a Wolf in Sheeps clothing, runs like a Deer and the looks of a beautiful Bird. Let the sun shine in baby! Exterior For 1969 GM tweaked the GTOs one-year old redesign with a number of detail changes and subtle refinements. At the front of the car, Pontiacs familiar stainless trimmed twin grilles hang hidden horizontal headlights and a pristine white GTO script behind a revolutionary Endura bumper. Below that bumper, the cars curved front valence features revised and more aggressive parking lights; and above that bumper, a sculpted hood with Pontiacs legendary twin nostril air intakes. Behind those intakes, like-new glass, is bordered by an attractive layer of bright stainless trim and a correct chrome drivers side mirror. And below that mirror, expressive coke bottle fenders are highlighted by dent-free stainless wheel well trim, straight stainless rocker moldings and traditional chrome door handles. On the front fenders, white inlayed GTO scripts add just the right amount of flash to the cars slick Burgundy paint. On the back fenders, 68-era arrowhead marker lights have been exchanged for V shaped, GTO branded units. And at the back of the car, a show worthy chrome bumper hangs showroom fresh taillight between spotless stainless exhaust tips and a black GTO trunk emblem. This is all topped by a white convertible canvas which has a glass rear window. Interior Take a look inside this A-Bodys airy cockpit and youll find a snazzy correct Black interior. Front and center, a straight and crack-free dash wears bright, engine-turned trim below fresh wood applique and original gauges. On the floor, an original PMD automatic transmission handle sits between the two bucket front seats and the center console. At the sides of those seats, stainless-trimmed door panels hang red-inlayed GTO emblems above fresh hardware and pliable armrests. Below those panels, clean carpet frames chrome-trimmed foot pedals in front of heavy-duty floor mats. In front of the driver, what looks like to be the original steering wheel spins around a Pontiac branded horn button. And behind the passengers, an original trunk hides a correct mat and full-size spare tire as well as a bumper jack. Drivetrain A 1970 400ci V8 Aqua painted GTO/Firebird Block with chromed valve covers and topped by an Edelbrock Intake and 4-barrel carburetor, sits in a clean engine bay. A TH-400 3-speed automatic is behind the mill and shifts through the gears flawlessly. Undercarriage Give this car a lift and we are met with Independent front suspension and 4-link rear suspension. Power disc brakes up front, and power drums on the rear, bring it to a quick halt. Dual exhaust snakes its way from the mill back through clean and rust-free frame, floor pans, rockers, and inner fenders. Overall a very nice example of the 69 Goat/GTO. Runs great, shifts smoothly, and is a looker to boot. Loud was the voice of the lonely goatherd Lay ee... odl lay e e..odl-oo..Ho!
