Default '69 RAIV GTO Convertible

Gorgeous...not a lot of IV convertibles out there - seller claims this is one of only 45 built. Probably moves out pretty well with the 3.90 gear....

I'm assuming the engine isn't the original since the seller doesn't mention it.

GTOs didn't come in "Midnight Green" in 1969 it was Verdoro Green. And, no, there was no "Rally Stripe" option on a 1969 GTO.

I believe Midnight Green was paint code 57 in '69. Rally Stripe was option 494 (69 PHS attached).

That being said, the color does look more Verdoro Green, especially in the corner trunk shot which shows the metallic in the paint.

Production totals:
45 manual trans of which 4 had the Judge option.
14 auto trans. Grand total: 59 RA IV Convertible '69 GTO's

I'd sure like to have it...

Love those wheels! And I normally prefer white letter tires on musclecars, but a set of redlines would really set those wheels off. Would make the car look like a "Hot Wheel".

I stand corrected. The Rally Stripes I have only ever seen on 1968s. They're on the bottom of the car along the rocker edge.

No, 3.90s and 4.33s were your choices.

looks like Midnight Green was a Special Order color unless I am mis-interpreting SOLID SPECL @ 100.05 . I always associated it with big full size Pontiacs.

What's puzzling is 69 raiv firebirds only came with 390's you couldn't get 433. RA III Firebirds could be ordered with optional 433 ratio...Go figure the logic.
