Classifind Cut: 1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible Clone – SOLD!
February 2, 2021 Update – we confirmed the seller of this “Classifind” deleted their listing, so we’re now able to call this one “SOLD!” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
November 18th Update – Just one week after listing their ’69 GTO tribute car, the private seller lowered their asking price by $1,500 to a revised $25,000 firm. We’re keeping a close eye on this one to see if that reduced price finds a willing buyer.
If you have your heart set on a ’69 Pontiac GTO 400 4-speed convertible for the feel of driving down the street rather than the admiration of fellow enthusiasts at a car show, then save yourself a lot of money and buy a properly prepared “Clone” or “Tribute” car. This driver quality, Limelight Green over black Morrokide, 56K original mile example originally listed in November 2020 on Craigslist in Lancaster, Pennsylvania may be a LeMans in GTO clothing but it won’t feel like that when you mash the throttle. The private seller currently now wants $25,000 firm, which is down $1,500 from their original ask. Using standard LeMans values, the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool places the asking price between this guide’s current #2 “Very Good” estimate of $20,200 and its #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $30,800.
Here’s the seller’s description:
