Palladium Silver 1969 GTO Convertible

The car was originally bought by my uncle in June of 1969; one of about 7,000 produced in 1969. I clearly remember him driving this awesome vehicle up to our house and hearing the rumble of the engine. Even back then, I knew I had to have this car one day. About 20 odd years later, it happened.

The car hadn't been driven, and rarely started in 7 years. While the mileage was low (63,000 original), I still had my work cut out for me.

To-date, the engine and carburetion has been completely overhauled, radiator re-cored, gas tank restored, brake lines and brakes redone, shocks and springs replaced. The body, roof and interior are in good shape. I still keep the original bill of sale, delivery checklists and warranty card (although I suspect that Pontiac may no longer honor any repairs...).

Now for some stats:

Engine: 400 YS
Carb: 4 BBL QuadraJet
Colour: 69 Palladium Silver
Trim: Black

Options:

Tinted Windshield Glass
Front Compartment Console
H.D. Front & Rear Suspension Dual
Rear Axle with 3.55 ratio and Posi
Front disc brakes
3 speed automatic
Power steering
Retractable headlamp covers
AM pushbutton radio and power antenna

I can't seem to find the original bill, but I believe the car originally sold for between $3,000 to $4,000.

Questions or comments about this car? George.
