White-over-red with fresh 400ci V8. Reasonably priced American icon.

Pontiac’s storied "GOAT" badge began as a high-performance option pack in 1964 for the second-generation Pontiac Tempest.

In 1966, the GTO became a standalone model, with the second-generation arriving in 1968.

The 1969 facelift saw the front quarter windows removed for an enlarged pillarless look, as well as redesigned head and tail lights. Inside the ignition barrel was relocated from the dash to the steering column.

The standard 400ci (6.6lt) V8 remained, though various Ram Air options were available, as well as the notorious GTO "Judge"; a low-cost stripped out Plymouth Road Runner competitor.

This ’69 GTO is the standard model, not the bare-bones Judge.

It’s finished in original Cameo White over red interior, and features a freshly rebuilt 400ci V8 under the bonnet.

The three-speed automatic and power steering make this a very useable classic, and it’s an American icon that will certainly set you apart on the roads and at a car show.

The Goat presents incredibly well in photos with seemingly good paint, great interior and a clean engine bay.

If you’re after a muscle car classic for the weekend, and are seeking a bit of value as the prices of Aussie muscle cars continue to climb – this ’69 GTO could be well worth a look, listed at $45,000.

The car is based in Victoria, and you can check out the full listing here!
