One of my high school buddies purchased a 69 RA IV GTO for 1500 dollars around 1973. It had the 4 speed transmission and it was scary fast. I am sure that he realizes now that he should have hung onto it.

Had a new 69 GTO when I was just 19 Great car for the time period Handled better than anything else at the time and yes it was steady on the road at full tilt. Speedo wrapped right around past the bottom quite readily Hard to lock it down off the start in the 1/4 mile

Yikes 150 mph in a 1969 suspension car. That would be very interesting.

Actually some magizines got 1/4 mile times on RAM AIR IV GTO's within low 13's or low 14's. Diffrent sources have diffrent times. Car and Driver I think recorded a 13.2sec on a RAM AIR IV Judge in 1969.
