1969 Pontiac Le Mans GTO Tribute
While this 1969 Pontiac Le Mans accurately pays tribute to a GTO in exterior appearance, when you check out the upgrades to the interior, suspension, and 400 V8, you'll soon realize that this is one of the best values in muscle machines today.
This is sought-after year for Pontiac fans. The upgraded Endura front end has a powerful, pointy presence; the sheetmetal has a curvy Coke-bottle profile; and the chrome rear bumper is expertly integrated into the design. Plus, we love a year-correct color like Mayfair Maize on this coupe. It gives this an approachable first impression. But then people spot upgrades like the dual cowl hood, dark tinted windows, GTO badging, and those shiny 17-inch American Racing Torq Thurst wheels. All of this quickly reveals this coupe's dark side.
You paid a little bit more for a Pontiac back in the day, and the premium difference can be felt the moment you sit down in the bucket seats. All the black elements, including the seat covers, door panel, and carpeting have the feeling of solid investment. This is a comfortable center console car with bright wood appearance panels used through the center section and dash to break up its fashionable black. While all this looks premium and factory-correct, you can instantly tell there have been some nice investments in upgrades, too. You feel it the moment you grab the grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel. And when you twist the key, the AM/FM/CD stereo and full gauge cluster begin radiate a digital glow that tells you there are plenty more upgrades throughout.
Pontiac's big 400 cubic-inch V8 looks great with its correct blue block as well as the upgraded finned air grabber and valve covers. This rebuilt V8 has the unmistakable look of performance, and it's is backed up by go-fast goodies like a four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers that also contribute to the thundering dual exhaust. Making sure all this power gets to the ground is a rebuilt TH400 three-speed automatic transmission and a stout 12-bolt rear end. But more than just pure power, this tribute car has been upgraded to outmaneuver the original GTOs. It has been given a full UMI Performance suspension upgrade that includes a tubular A-arm front suspension, new shocks, new bushings, and thick sway bars front & rear. Plus, the brakes are now a full Wilwood package with slotted and vented discs at all four corners. There's even the superior grip of modern Nitto NT555 Extreme ZR tires.
