This ultra-rare 1969 Ram Air IV GTO was built by the factory with special-order Starlight Black (code-AA) paint. A total of only 151 Ram Air IV hardtops were produced in 1969 with the heavy-duty Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission, and this GTO was also ordered with the heavy-duty Safe-T-Track rear axle and 4.33:1 gears. This was the ultimate GTO performance combination for 1969. This car is a matching-numbers example with a documented history. Originally delivered through GM of Canada to Nib Johnston Pontiac-Buick-GMC in Courtenay, British Columbia, Canada, on March 12, 1969. Johnston dealership campaigned this GTO for its first year in the NHRA in F/SA class, and it was then repurposed as a dealership marketing and promotional vehicle for the next 21 years. This Pontiac collectible has gone through a frame-off rotisserie restoration. The car was completely disassembled and stripped to bare metal, the body prepped and given a fresh coat of Starlight Black paint. The resulting reassembly and fit is better than new. The frame and all components were dismantled, stripped and restored to as-new condition, as well. The original 400/370 HP Ram Air IV engine was completely disassembled and rebuilt to factory specifications, driven just 100 miles since completion. It is mated to a heavy-duty Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission, with heavy-duty Safe-T-Track rear axle and factory special-order 4.33:1 gears. Other notable items include a cable-controlled Ram Air hood inlet, heavy-duty suspension, the Y96 handling package and G70x14 Firestone thin-whitewall tires. The history of this very rare Pontiac collectible has been documented with items including its original GM invoice and customs form, GM of Canada certification, PHS documentation and racing and restoration photos.
