A repro window sticker furnished by PHS shows a MSRP of $4178. 20 Options listed were: G78X14 WW Fiberglass Tires Turbo Hydramatic Transmission Radio push button with stereo tape player Wheel covers-Deluxe Electric Clock Power Steering-variable ratio Power Brakes-Disc front Door edge guards Extra anti-freeze Initially delivered to a GM dealership in Oshawa. Ontario. Canada and then sold and shipped to a customer (dealer) in the U. S. ) This was common practice with the 1970 GTO's. especially the convertibles due to the incredible high demand for this car in the U. S. The Pontiac GTO sold in the U. S. or in Canada were identical in 1970. The 1970 Pontiac GTO was completely restyled in 1970. The front reveals the familiar Pontiac split grille while the bumper. wraparound parking and side marker lamps and valance panels were all restyled. Horizontally mounted headlamps extend to the outboard ends. and the split grilles are surrounded by the wraparound bumper. The one piece panel which is above the grille and houses the headlamps is made from Fiberglass reinforced plastic. This was another first for Pontiac engineers who were the industry innovators and leaders in the use of plastic exterior applications. The GTO has its own distinctive front end highlighted by a newly styled energy-absorbing ENDURA bumper. The car's profile shows the fresh look of new fenders. doors and rear quarter panels. The tail lamps wrap around to serve as rear side markers and are mounted in a new bumper. A wide selection of exterior colors were offered in 1970. 11 of which were new! Personally. my all time favorite color for any GM car made in 1970 is the Carousel Red now on this car. It originally was Sierra Yellow. This car has just been painted with very expensive DuPont single stage paint and then shot with 3 coats of Clear. The entire car was hand worked and air-boarded & sanded to remove any dings. dents or imperfections and no bondo was used in the process. only metal. The paint is like glass and has great depth. it looks like you could stick you hand inside the paint. As good as this car looks. it drives even better. It starts the first time. idles smooth. and the exhaust has that deep rumple of a 400 cubic inch Pontiac V-8. It does not have it's original radio but does have a great sounding more modern stereo system. I believe it is a Kenwood with a CD player. Yes. the factory tach works great! It drives great at highway speed with a fabulous smooth ride and shifts correctly. The convertible power top work great and the top has no rips. cuts or tears. It was replaced in 2007 when the car had an expensive complete restoration. The chrome is magnificent as is reflected in the photos!The trunk and floor pans are solid and the undercarriage was just pressured washed and cleaned. There is no spare tire or jack with the car. but should your bid meet our low reserve price. we will have a correct spare. rim and jack dropped shipped to your front door at our expense. Should you so desire. vintage air-conditioning can be installed for $1495. 00 which will outperform the air-conditioning offered in 1970. It is with all new parts and work fantastic. Included with the paperwork was an appraisal from Lou Trepanier. a professional independent appraiser from the New England area dated 11/16/2007. It states that the car has 35. 10 miles and is in EXCELLENT condition having had a professional fresh restoration and detailing and that this car is a " AACA Official antique milestone car & a top ranked MUSCLE car. The documentation included is the complete set of Pontiac Historical Services Documentation. a 1970 Pontiac GTO owner's manual. a reproduction window sticker and a Kenwood Instruction manual. All are in a nice clear binder. At that time in 2007 with 35. 10 miles showing on the odometer. nbsp;the car was professionally appraised at $49. 00. and these cars have continued to rise almost every year in value. It now shows 37. 67 miles but we have no way of proving that this is the true original mileage. This is a rare opportunity to buy and own a documented real factory built GTO Convertible at well below the market price. If your interested in learning the "low dollar" price. please call me at 954-873-6495 and I'll be happy to give you that information. but I will not answer E-mail requests which ask "What is your reserve or low dollar?" I was able to see the Y/S stamped on the front of the block which indicates a 400 cubic inch V-8 with Automatic transmission. According to Pontiac Historical Services. a total of just 2. 73 Pontiac GTO Convertibles were built in 1970 with this engine and transmission combination which also includes the Judge Convertibles as well. It is estimated that 40%-50% have survived or approx. 800-1000 cars. Of those I believe only approx. 10% remain in this condition or around 100 examples. Originally Pontiac wanted to make the color "Carousel Red" exclusive to the GTO Model "The Judge". and here in my opinion represented one of the best Judges known to exist. 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air IVThis "real" GTO Ram Air IV Convertible in Carousel Red was auctioned on Saturday. November 13. 2010. It was part of my friend's collection. Milt Robson. Milt is one fine gentleman. I was privileged to buy from Milt a spectacular 1957 Pontiac Fuel Injection Convertible with 35. 00 actual miles. Milt's Judge Ram Air IV Convertible was sold for $308. 00 (ID was 242670Z133454) which would be the top end of the market for a 1970 GTO Convertible. although some examples have recently sold for even more money. This gorgeous factory GTO Convertible that has been beautifully refinished in Carousel Red can be bought for a mere fraction of that price! and I do mean a fraction of that amount! Twenty First Century Auctions has been selling fine Late model sports cars. vintage and collectible cars on EBAYMOTORS since March of 2000 and we have a 100% feedback rating. Even in this very tough economic times where real estate has tumbled down a very steep hill. vintage cars. the real ones. the pedigreed cars in great restored or near perfect original condition continue to hold value and in most instances appreciate. Why not have fun with your money? . enjoy your life and know that when you wake up in the morning your dollars are still safe in your garage or warehouse and haven't evaporated into thin air I was privileged to be close friends with the late Jerry J. Moore from Houston. Texas. Jerry was a Real Estate Mogul and one of the largest owners of shopping centers in the world. Jerry was also an avid car collector and amassed one of the largest and best vintage car collections on the Planet. If Jerry told me once. he probably told me over 100 times.

Collector car insurance is dirt cheap. about $250-$300 a year for a quality collectible like this. and you can also buy full coverage!They usually require a garage and not more than 2500 miles a year put on the car.
