242 Title

I recently bought a 1970 GTO Conv barn find on ebay. The car is in rough shape and at some point had body parts replaced. My question is about the title. VIN # at the bottom of the windshield and on the NJ title starts with 242, but the title says "LEM" for the model. Is that correct for a '70? I know early GTO's were an option package, but by 1970 had already become it's own model. This is my first GTO so I am not aware of how it should appear on the title. There is every chance something shady happened over the years, but I just want to know if the title should say "GTO" or could "LEM" accurate. Thank you

Welcome to the forum!

Have owned numerous '66-71 Pontiac GTO's that the title listed the GTO's VIN, yet noted LeMans in the description. Nothing to be concerned about, the VIN number is what identifys the car.

Thank you for the info. I figured that might be the situation, but wanted to hear from somebody that is more experienced with GTO's than I am. Looking forward to getting this one back on the road.
