Pontiac GTO 1971 or 1970

I want to buy this car, its advertised as a Pontiac GTO 1970. I am no Pontiac guru, but the bonet shape looks like a 1971 GTO, the engine however specified looks like a 1970 RAM AIR. Can anyone help me definitvely what it is. It is in Australian dollars so its about 20k U.S.

Thanks in advance

Definitely a '71-72 hood and nose on it. Hood looks very cheesy because of the missing grills. So it's either a 71/72 or it was repaired with 71/72 parts. I really hope it's my first guess, as no '70 deserves that.

Also, that's more like $16,800 in US dollars. Pretty good deal, even if it is a bastardized 1970 model. Seems more likely that it's a '71 though.

it's a 71.probably a misprint or wrong title for wrong car,that happens if a seller has multiple listings of similar cars.also,the motor is painted the pontiac blue that they started in 71.

71 for sure. The interior, the motor color, the front end. I wouldn't be too worried. 71's are great cars too.

I notice no "GTO" on the driver door interior panel. Could it be a lemans cloned? That panel doen't look like what my 71 did, definitely has the seat cover that mine did. Have you seen up close?

Ad says it's a 242 car, but it also says it's a '70. I'd want to see the American VIN plate.
