Column shift GTO

Im looking at a 69 GTO for sale. It has bucket seats with a column shift. Seems little weird but numbers on vin and data plate match. body is in good shape with full quarters done and non factory motor out of a 74 Trans AM for $5500.00. What do you think?

Links to the ad?

I've seen other column shift bucket seat GTO's. Seems that if you did'nt pay extra for the console they put the shifter on the column. Just does'nt seem right, does it? I once say a 68 GTO with endura delete (chrome bumper) that had a column shift and a bench. I've also seen another 69 in Verdoro Green that had a black bucket seat interior with a column shift.

Not sure of the rarity but for desirablity I would say a floor shift GTO would be worth more but you could always convert it if you wanted too.

Price is right if it's decent. The GTO is a performance option, not luxury option, lighter the better. Judge was worse with the wheel trim ring delete, really, no trim rings? Pontiac was performance oriented and catered to their customers.

Column shift cars were 3 speed manuals, if you upgraded to the 4 speed the shifter is on the floor with the console being another option.

I've worked on and driven a few column shift GTO's over the years. Both early 2 speed auto cars ('64-'66) and TH400 cars...('67 and up). I had one original owner of a column shift TH400 '67 GTO with a black bench interior (car was dark blue) and he always had me do the tune ups on it. That car flew. They weren't any slower if the auto shifter was on the column!!! A GTO is a GTO!!!

I saw a '67 column shift bench seat goat with 3 dueces at a show last year. I was looking at the VIN when the owner came over to talk. I said I had never seen a column shift Goat with 3 dueces and a bench. The VIN was good and he said he was the 2nd owner of the car. A lady special order the car new in '67 and he had all the paperwork and PHS documents.

im still waiting on the owner to get back in touch with me for the sale. I probably will think about converting it to a floor shift once the body and interior job comes up.
