AutoHunter Spotlight: 1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible

Still The Great One

-

Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1969 Pontiac GTO convertible, which has been in the hands of the current owner for the past eight years. It is powered by a 400cid V8 and three-speed automatic transmission. Features include hideaway headlights, bucket seats, gauges, center console, and more. Finished in white with black power top over a black vinyl interior, this GTO comes with Pontiac Historic Services (PHS) documentation and a clear title.

The body was refinished in the original color of Cameo White (code 50) under previous ownership. Features include hideaway headlights, front fender-mounted antenna, driver-side mirror, wheel opening and rocker moldings, and black power convertible top.

A set of 14-inch Pontiac Rally II wheels with trim rings is wrapped in 225/70R14 radial tires.

The code 258 front bucket seat interior is upholstered in black vinyl. Features include power steering, console-mounted automatic transmission shifter, head restraints, push-button AM radio with rear speaker, and woodgrain accents.

The instrument panel includes the Rally gauge package that includes fuel, temperature, oil, and clock. According to the selling dealer, the odometer reads 18,208 miles, though the true mileage on this vehicle is unknown.

Per the PHS documentation, power is provided by the reportedly-original 350-horsepower 400 backed by the original Turbo Hydra-matic three-speed automatic transmission. Engine bay features include chrome valve covers and a chrome air cleaner lid.

This GTO was factory-equipped with an independent front suspension and a solid rear- drive axle with 3.55 gears (single-traction). Braking is provided by power front discs and rear drums. A dual exhaust system exits at the rear.

The auction for this 1969 Pontiac GTO convertible ends Friday, October 13, 2023, at 1:30 p.m. (PDT)

  1. In the fall of 1976 , the Captain was 18. Seems inctedible now, but then, in MASS. that was the legal drnking age., so me and my buds Never went from point “A” !to point “B” wihout Beer. And so…one fine day we drove to Wellesley to check out a ‘69 connvert. very similar to this one-except it was a cool metallic green. The car was really cherry and the lady only wanted $900 bucks -But then. I found only one rust-hole about the size of an brown egg. .
    -But since it was on the left frame, I didnt like it, so we split.

  2. In 1969 I taught my 18 year-old girlfriend to drive in my Corvair. Her dad took us to the Pontiac dealer to pick out her Birthday present. 😁 He leaned on a gold GTO Judge convertible and said, ” How about this one?” I froze and silently held still. She replied
    ” Too flashy.” Yikes. We settled on a green Firebird, but when the salesman tried to charge $400 extra for the radio which was already installed and included on the sticker price, we walked and went next door and got a sky-blue Mercury Cougar with a console shift automatic and Windsor 351.
