I bought the car last year after the original owner passed away; it had been sitting in his garage for quite some time and his wife finally decided it was time for it to go.
Most of the body work and engine modifications were completed when I purchased it. I added the flames and all of the chrome under the hood. Eventually I plan on getting the bumpers rechromed and adding the rocker mouldings. I also added the original AM Radio and installed a hidden Blaupunkt stereo with remote.
I belong to the Quad Cities Cruisers car club ( Davenport and Bettendorf, IA; Rock Island and Moline, IL ) so the car gets driven and shown every other week.

“This 66 Pontiac GTO is a matching numbers frame up restoration completed in 2006.
This is a fine example of 60's muscle. The 389 4V engine has been bored .0040 over and an Edelbrock 650 replaced the original carb. Transmission is a turbo 400.
The car is equipped with factory AC. Car runs and drives like new.”

“68 GTO, 428 roller, TH400, 3:73 tru-trac. Ran a best so far 12.41@107 with a 1.65 60'.
It's taken a couple years to get the drivetrain and suspension rebuilt, the body is next.
It went to the quarter-finals in Virginia Motorsports Park earlier this year.”

“69 GTO, 400, 4 sp., 3:55 safe-t-track. It's run 12.8 @ 107mph but it's a street car.
I love that GTO stance... just like my first one in '76 when I was in high school.
Took second place in the popular vote class at the '02 GTOAA East Coast Reginals.”

I was hoping you experts might know? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Anyway, apparently
it's a 69 Pontiac GTO (manual gear box) with 63,000 original miles, it's been in storage for the last 12 years.
It's in lovely condition.

Original Exterior colour was - Liberty Blue
Original Interior color was - Blue
Block Casting - 9790071
Date Code - E 029 ( May 2, 1969)

It's now painted Sapphire Red with a red velour interior? which is a bit weird? Any advice or help would be fantastic as I know nothing!”

"The Tempest line received the most minor of facelifts in 1969. A honey-comb grille was
fitted to the front, and there were new tail lights that sat on the bumpers instead of in them,
as in 1968. Vent windows were gone on two-door models, except for the Two-Door Sedan.
The Custom was now called the Custom S.
In January, a special GTO Judge model was introduced. The Judge came standard with the
366 hp Ram Air 400 V-8 engine, with the 370 hp Ram Air IV listed as an option.
In addition to functional hood scoops the Judge featured unusual, and intentionally
ostententious, striping and decals, and a 60-inch floating deck air foil with the Judge
emblem on the upper surface.
The Judge was available as a Hardtop Coupe, or as a Convertible, and most early units were
painted a bright red-orange. If the car failed to say it all, there was also a red-orange
"The Judge" racing jacket available in a variety of men's, women's and boy's
sizes for $9.75 each.
Tempest production sagged noticeably to 287,915 units in 1969. This included 26,922
Tempests 84,590 Customs, 104,116 LeManses and 72,287 GTO's (of which 6,833 were Judges)."
