The muscle car market was already starting to feel the pressure of raising fuel and insurance costs by 1970, so sales at most manufactures started to decline. At Pontiac, the GTO continued to lead the way for the performance savvy buyer and was again revised for its 7th year with a revised front end highlighting the four exposed individual headlamps, still wrapped inside the Endura urethane bumper. New stiffer front anti-sway bar, and addition of a rear sway bar, enhanced the cornering capabilities along with new variable-ratio power steering giving further ease to steering along with a shorter turning radius. A new taillight design and enhanced body profile, several new available engines with high horsepower output, and abundant options allowed buyers to personalize their GTO anyway you preferred! Overall GTO production crested at 40,149 units and once again, they proved to be dominant both on the strip and at stop lights! The rarest are the limited production 3,783 convertibles built! Very hard to find exceptional example today!

This example delivered new from Kahn Motors, Inc. located in Englewood, NJ on May 5th, 1970 as a late production unit. Records provided with our car start with owners, Ron & Norma Rogers, located in Warrenton, MO. They located this exceptionally solid car in Georgia the spring of 1997 showcasing what appears to be all original sheet metal & floors (exception to driver’s side lower quarter panel was replaced), and then performed a beautiful mechanical & cosmetic restoration soon afterward. Sadly, with the passing of Roger, the car has sat for a number years parked alongside their 1965 GTO Tri-power Hardtop, 1966 GTO convertible, and an unfinished 1969 GTO Judge hardtop. Upon acquisition by the St. Louis Car Museum, we completely serviced the car to ensure it was properly prepared for road use again. This included new engine fluids & filters, fresh battery, all new ignition system (plugs, plug wires, distributor & rotor, condenser & points), rebuilt carburetor, flushed fuel system, front brake hoses, valve cover gaskets, new brake master cylinder & fresh brake fluid, and front suspension center link. Inside, we replaced the interior carpeting for new, replaced the top & A-pillar weather stripping, converted the air conditioning system to R134a to operational order, installed new blower motor relay & switch, new rear trunk mat & spare tire cover, along with a few other cosmetic details.
Back on the road for the first time in years, we truly could not be more pleased with the overall performance! All aspects of this 1970 Pontiac GTO are remarkably tight, with smooth performance from the engine and transmission. It remains all number’s matching with correct VIN-stamped block, transmission, original intake, factory issued Quadrajet carburetor, heads, exhaust manifolds, etc. Included with car will be all PHS documentation, complete spare tire with tools, and two sets of keys. Please feel free to call with additional questions or to schedule a chance to review in person! A limited production example, and nice to find in such original condition! Act quickly on this one!
