Lot #699 - Created at the apex of the first muscle car ear and one of the most unique production Pontiacs ever, this 1969 Pontiac GTO convertible is very special indeed. It is one of only 14 built with the original potent Ram Air IV V8 engine and equipped with a 400 Turbo Hydramatic transmission and, according to the Pontiac Historic Services. The Ram Air IV was typical of Pontiac engineering expertise, combining stout, reinforced 4-bolt main block, high-lift cam with 1.65:1 rocker arms working in round-port heads, a specially tuned aluminum intake manifold and high-flow cast-iron headers, all topped with that famous Ram Air intake system sealed to twin hood scoops. This example takes full advantage of the Ram Air IV with a 3.90:1 Safe-T-Track limited-slip rear end, the strong driveline complemented with power steering, power front disc brakes and special suspension to make the GTO one of the fastest, most capable-handling cars of its time. Driven just 1,250 miles since a comprehensive frame-off restoration, its gleaming Matador Red paint is matched by an executive-class red bucket seat interior fitted with a center console, Rally gauges with tachometer, AM/FM radio with below dash 8-track tape player and woodgrain 3-spoke sport steering wheel. Exceptionally clean and well-detailed, this handsome powerhouse rides on Rally II wheels with Firestone Wide Oval tires. Documentation includes PHS paperwork and letters from previous owners.
