New member here. I wanted to share my latest project with forum.

So a little history I purchased this 1969 GTO about 6 months ago and wanted to redo allot of the interior and exterior. As well as clean up a WHOLE bunch of BS from previous owners.

So initial Pics!

The goal was to get the interior out strip off every panel weather strip and drive it to the painters

Old Engine Bay, with a customer coolant overflow

Taking apart the heater box I found a rat that looks like he had been there for a while

Hey, um.... do you have a 68 rear bumper and nose on that "69 GTO"? I could'nt tell from the interior shots because the dash is out, but I see 69 side markers, front valence and doors.

Looks like a lot of work but you sure look like you're knocking it out! :cheers

What's the final color going to be?

Man that's an odd bird, 69 with a 68 rear bumper, front valence and seats. Looks like someone married two different year GTO's. What are the first 6 digits of the VIN tag? What engine does it have?

Whoa! you got my old car, you didn't like my expanding foam bumper mod? :rofl:

Looking good man!
:lol:

I see that this car does not have interior braces by the doors. I know my 70 and 70 Chevelles have these braces that weld to the floor pan and to the rear inner quarter panel behind where the door shuts.

Was this only a production for the 70-72s?
I personally have no idea. I don't even have teh shop manual for this car.
