rare '69 GTO

I have a matching numbers 1969 GTO 4-speed convertible, that is phs documented to be original carousel red. The numbers agree. when i bought the car i saw that number and thought is was a judge, cause a GTO book says if it was carousel red it is a judge, but i know better now, but it has to be rare. The paperwork says it did not have ram air and did have hidden headlights. so it is NOT a judge. I have searched a lot online and have only found one other. I know this is a special order car. but i need to know how rare the car actually is. I basically just need to know a value comparison to a true judge. thanks for your time.

this is the other car i found,

when i bought the car it did, it even has the stronger trunk springs to hold it up, but i did some research and found out that the wing was from a hardtop, not convertible, so it is not stock. up until a few years ago you could not buy a convertible wing.

What is the paint code # on the firewall data trim plate? It should be 72 for c red. Your car could have been ordered with a special paint code (sps). I have heard of a few other 69 GTO non-Judges with 72 paint code from factory.
It should add some more value to your car I would think.
Got any pictures to share of your car?

the guy i bought it from took it apart, painted it and ran out of money. he let it sit so long that the paint actually looked original. it sat for like 19 years before i bought it. about a year after i bought it, a tornado tore apart the garage it was in and killed the old owner. just thought that is kinda wierd about the car. i started sanding on it, found such bad bodywork i have to get it bead blasted, and just havent done it. I have only let it sit for 5 years. ill let it sit for another 14 before ill sell it. i dont want to sell it and have a tornado kill me lol. i have no idea about the owners before that, the guy i bought it from found it in a junk yard abandoned.

i was even watching the tornado from my house
