Listed earlier this week here on Craigslist in Watchung, New Jersey is this restored, Limelight Green over black vinyl 1969 Pontiac GTO Hardtop the private seller is currently asking $25,999 for. Using the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool indicates the private seller has his “Goat” priced approximately $1,000 higher than the #3 “Good” estimate after deducting (-10%) for having a TurboHydramatic automatic transmission. If you are serious about purchasing this pretty GTO, you can start the conversation with the private seller, Charlie, at (732) 887-2879.
1969 marked the second model year for the second generation Pontiac GTO. In addition to the typical minor grill and tail light changes typical of the period, the most notable changes were the elimination of side vent windows and the relocation of the ignition key from the dashboard to the steering column as part of a new anti-theft device. Another minor styling change was the switch of the rear quarter panel marker lights from the Pontiac arrowhead style emblem to a “GTO” script. Front seat headrests were now standard as well.
We picked this 1969 GTO Hardtop as its set up to be a realistic cruiser that happens to have plenty of power on tap. With a TurboHydramatic 400 automatic transmission controlled by a “His-and-Hers” shifter, working air conditioning, and a tilt steering wheel, this is a GTO your significant other will actually enjoy cruising in with you at the helm. We love the Limelight Green and while Judge side stripes are applied, we like the omission of “The Judge” front fender labels that would immediately call this example out as tribute car. If you want a GTO but want to be comfortable driving it, this example may just be what you’re looking for. The other item that piqued our interest in this car is the background used. We’re trying to track down the location of what appears to be a collector car storage unit where each tenant has their own garage space. It looks like a cool concept so if you have more information about this, please comment below. Good luck with the purchase!
Here’s the private seller’s brief description (rewritten without all capital letters):
“1969 GTO. Approximately three year old restoration. 400 cubic inch V8, automatic transmission, cold A/C, tilt steering wheel. Very good running car.”
