****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 some 426,240 sedans that may have a faulty transmission shift cable, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report this morning. The recall concerns a fault within four-speed automatic transmissions equipped on 2007-2010 Saturn Aura models, and 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 models.

The report specifies that tabs on the transmission shift cable may fracture and separate. Such a fault could cause a discrepancy between the actual position of the transmission and the apparent position of the shift lever.
GM is currently working to notify owners of the vehicles in question, and dealers will check and replace shift cables free of charge. Scroll down to read the complete NHTSA report.
Bob Lutz was one of the forces behind bringing the Holden Monaro to the United States, as the ill-fated Pontiac GTO in 2004. And while that car received critical acclaim, it was a sales disappointment. Now, Road & Track is reporting that our suspicions were correct - Pontiac was working on a two-door, G8-based coupe before it was shuttered.

In that R&T article, which is no longer available online, Lutz explained that the new GTO would solve many of the issues found in the original. Car Advice speculates that the new model would have look like a rebadged version of the Holden Coupe 60 Concept from 2008, a conclusion we also came to.
That car would have been a big departure from the 2004 to 2006 GTO. It has an extremely long hood and short rear deck, with an almost fastback roofline and a wide greenhouse with a tall beltline. The wheel arches were very pronounced, and the chin and rocker panel splitters gave it a race-ready look. Would it have been enough to make the GTO work in the US? We think it might of, but it looks like we'll never know.
When it rains, it pours. General Motors has announced yet another major recall, covering 1.3 million units in the American market over concerns that the power steering could suddenly fail. As reported by The Detroit News' David Shepardson, GM has now recalled nearly ten times as many cars as it did all of last year.
It's important to note that should this problem arise in these cars, the steering won't fail completely, however, power steering could suddenly stop functioning. Manual steering would still be possible, but as GM says, there's an increased risk of accidents, particularly at lower speeds.
Like the ignition switch recall, this latest problem covers a wide range of vehicles from Chevrolet, Saturn and Pontiac. Normally, we'd give you the full rundown in paragraph form, but the variety of models and model years means a list is just easier. So, have a look, directly from GM's press release:
