1969 Pontiac GTO Ram Air IV Convertible at Mecum - $ 107k

1 of 45 Ram Air IV 4-speed GTO Convertibles produced in 1969. 400/370 HP V-8 engine. Rochester Quadrajet carburetor. 4-speed manual transmission. Positraction differential. Power brakes. Code 63 Champagne with White convertible top. Black vinyl interior. Bucket seats and center console with gauges. Wood steering wheel. Power convertible top. Hurst shifter. AM/FM radio. Hood tachometer.
The Ram Air IV was the absolute high-water mark for the production Pontiac 400. Rated at a very conservative 370 HP at 5,500 RPM, with 445 lb-ft of torque at 3,900, the Ram Air IV used a four-bolt main block with forged pistons, special round-port cylinder heads, cast-iron exhaust headers and an aluminum intake manifold with a removable heat crossover.
A highly desirable and collectible muscle car, and one of the most desirable GTOs ever built, they don't come cheap.

This example made $107k.
