Exclamation Trying to find my dad's old '69 GTO


Hey everybody,
Im trying to find out whatever happened to my dad's old '69 GTO. Heres the story on it.

My dad owned this car for over 10 years and he sold it back in 1992 when I was born for $4000 to a gentleman in North Vancouver BC. When my dad sold the car, it was Light Metallic Blue (a Corvette colour). It also had the original 400 4-spd with a Ram Air 3. It also had dark blue interior. It came original with a white vinyl top. It was removed but the chrome trim was still on it when my dad sold it. So back to the guy who bought it. He painted it Carosel Red and made it a Judge clone but he left the dark blue interior. My dad could of bought it back for $10,000 but couldnt come up with the funds. That was the last time he saw his old GTO. We havent heard anything about it until this month when my friend who lives in North Vancouver recalls seeing a carousel red 69 GTO Judge with DARK BLUE INTERIOR!!!! He saw it between the years of 2003-2004 and it was still in North Vancouver BC. He also said it was rusty and it no longer had the Judge stripes but you could see where they previously were. I belive 100% that this was my dad's old 69 GTO. I would like to know if my dad's old car is still on the road or if its sitting in somebody's yard rotting away. If anybody has seen my dad's old 69 GTO or if you own it, PLEASE email at cole_383@hotmail.com.


And here is my webpage about my search for it.

Just thought I'd bump this in hopes of new info.

I recieved this email today that ties everything together....



"Hey there,
I think I am the guy who bought your dads gto but unfortunately I don't know where it went.
I bought a blue 69 gto as you described from a guy in Richmond. I painted it carousel red and judge cloned the outside but didn't have the money to do the interior. And it had ram air 4 decals on the hood and a hood tach.
I sold it to a young guy in north Vancouver about 14 years ago.
He had it another couple of years (maybe 3) and then sold it again.
I do remember he was in a gto club and he commuted in the car from north Vancouver to squamish, Which might be a lead. Sorry don't have his full name. I think his first name was Chris.
Good luck
Patrick"

Were there any '68 model cars sold with vinyl top trim but no vinyl top? The top looks to be painted to me. My '67 had the vinyl top trim with a painted top. Just not an option that I see very often.
