Check out my new '69 GTO project

I restored my '66 GTO 20 years ago with my dad. I got the itch to get into another and found this '69 in the local paper over the summer. It has been in a barn since 1979. Original drivetrain, interior, etc. Midnight green on gold. Needs to be gone all the way through. I will try to upload some pictures.

The biggest problem is that little ding in the rear to pull out, but I figure for a numbers matching GTO it will all be worth it.

Nice body, and very complete. I wish I had your dash. Rear end will need some work, but very restorable, nice barn find. Good luck with the build.
If ya get tight on funds, I could take that hood off your hands... Just a thought.

The dash is one of my favorite things on the car, not one split or crack. I contemplated going to a black interior, but the dash is so nice I'm staying with the gold. However, I believe the midnight green is going to go by the wayside for black paint.

You have so much useable interior I wouldn't mess with it, just a new carpet. I would paint the car black, but what are you building it for? My car was Orange w/tan top, red when I got it, red when I paint it again, but mine is a Lemans Sport, not a GTO. Looks like a fun project, except for the rear end.

This car will be a very nice driver like my '66 when I get done (if I ever get done!). I like to drive and enjoy them with my two sons. I bought my first car when I was 14, a '70 Lemans Sport, 350 4 speed, buckets, console. Sold it when I was in college. Man, I miss that car. I drove by the guy's house I sold it to about a year ago and was thinking I may buy it back but it was long gone.

Nice find! Looks like a great project. Midnight green is a nice color, too. Check out my pics if you get a chance.
