1969 GTO HARDTOP RESTORATION
                    
 
This 69 GTO hardtop car is a nicely optioned automatic car that was my daily driver for the last few years. It's got Power Windows, Tilt, Hood Tach, Gauges, Clock, Hide-Away's, Soft-ray glass, and Air Conditioning. We are doing a mild frame off restoration on this car. It won't be a concourse restoration but it will be very nice # 1 car when finished. Performance Years is providing us with complete new drivers side repro quarter, driver side door skin, and patch panels for the passenger side quarter and the
lower fender areas. We'll also be doing our own interior reupholster job while Spotts Performance has rebuilt the engine for us. We'll be doing the engine detailing ourselves and spending a lot of time on making the basecoat clear finish nice and straight. This is a numbers matching car that we will be taking to shows this spring and summer to display. Check our links page to see where we will be this car show season.
