****1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible****
Not a clone - Real 242 car, 400-4bbl HO, TH400 automatic on column car.
Came from factory in cool red on red interior w/ white power top.
Car is PHS documented.
It's a complete car that needs resto but very solid start.
Pin holes in floor & trunk pan. Frame is fine. Doors, hood & rockers are good. Engine compartment solid.
Car really needs interior work, new top & some basic body work/paint before it is ready to go..but it does RUN & DRIVE.
Rust wise the worst seems to be trunk lid lips with some in trunk gutters, lower quarters & lower fender.
A strong running rebuilt 1967 400HO GTO motor is under the hood.
A strong TH400 automatic that shifts fine. (Also includes an extra TH400 - the #s matching one!)
Mechanically, it will need some more brake work (car stops but not great), exhaust, motor pulley's, etc but it could be driven once that's done as it has just had the following work done--
New battery, hoses, starter, wires, plugs, distributor, master cylinder, drive shaft, rebuilt carb & electric fuel pump installed.
Buy this now & have it ready for Spring cruise nights.....awesome American Muscle Car.
It's 1 of 4,385 '69 GTO Convertible 400-4, A/T cars. Not clear on how many of those were Red on Red and White top...but it's probably not a ton.Here's a video of car running

General Motors is recalling around 38,000 Pontiac G8 sedans from its 2008 and 2009 model years. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that the cars may have a passenger-side airbag flaw that might prevent proper deployment in certain scenarios.
Wed, 31 Oct 2012 14:39:00 EST
According to NHTSA, the airbag might not adequately protect a fifth percentile woman - that is, a woman around four-foot, 11-inches weighing 108 pounds. The New York Times indicates that the anomaly was found during a crash test conducted by GM's Australian branch, Holden, which was testing the G8's twin (read: Commodore) for head injuries. According to that report, the test in question is specifically tailored to simulate injuries to females, so the results do not apply to men or children.
The issue has been blamed on a seat position sensor that governs airbag deployment rates. NHTSA indicates that when the front passenger seat is moved all the way forward, the faulty sensor may inappropriately trigger a 30-millisecond delay between airbag stages, potentially leading to greater injuries.
It seems the Pontiac Trans Am steadfastly refuses to die. Ever since Chevrolet was granted a retrofied Camaro to compete with the Ford Mustang, Pontiac lovers have lamented the loss of this 1970s icon. And, looking at the Hurst Edition from Trans Am Depot, shown here at the 2012 SEMA Show, may explain what all the fuss is about.

It's not going to appeal to everyone's muscle-car tastes, but there's certainly room for a brash-and-bold black-and-gold Special Edition in many a Trans Am lover's garage. After all, if you want the keys to a custom pony car, you'll certainly get noticed in this one. If this scheme isn't your bag,, you can alternatively order your Hurst Edition in white and gold or silver and black. Oh, and don't forget a color-coordinated Screaming Chicken on the hood.
No matter which way you choose to go, your inner Burt Reynolds will appreciate the Eibach suspension kit, forged wheels with Pirelli PZero tires, functional shaker hood, fender air extractors, rear spoiler and, of course, a Hurst shifter inside. The interior is emblazoned with all manner of special touches, including a Hurst dash plate and T/A stitching on the Katzkin two-tone leather seats.
Jim Sharp of Elkhorn, Wisconsin needs a red 1967 Pontiac GTO to make his dad's Father's Day, possibly his last one, something extra special.
Back in the '60s, Jim's dad, Ken, drove a cherry red 1967 GTO to California for a job. He met a girl, got married and decided his wife's 1965 Ford Mustang was more fuel efficient than the Goat and the GTO was sold. As the story almost always goes, Ken has had seller's regret ever since.
Jim always meant to find a 1967 GTO and, with his dad's help, restore it. But life got in the way, time slipped by and Ken was recently diagnosed with esophageal cancer and given about three months to live.
