Default Liberty Blue '69 Grand Prix SJ 428HO 4-Speed

I just returned home yesterday from a road trip to West Chester, Ohio to work on my friend Scott's newly acquired GP. This car was restored in 1990 and shows extremely well for it's age. Kudos to KV, the previous owner who took great care of it all of those years!

The plan was to sort out some things, mainly under the hood. Correct numbered & dated components needed were sourced and then sent out for restoration prior to my arrival. Carb, alternator, starter and master cylinder were all replaced. NOS parts installed included both radiator hoses, distributor "R" cap & rotor, points & condenser. Reproduction parts included air cleaner & engine tune decals, dated plug wires, heater hoses, dated hose clamps, molded hood insulation pad, battery cables and battery.

I also restored a set of correct '69 "JK" code Rally II's just prior to leaving home for Ohio. Scott had a brand new set of the "bias look" redline radials waiting for them. Several other little things were addressed as well. It was fun to be a part of taking this car to the next level. And I must say, she runs very strong and drives great!

----Grant,,,Love this 69! What a great color for a GP, and probably the 1st GP I've seen that looked this great to me without a vinyl top. I'm wondering where the air shock pump is, am I just not seeing it?.....Bill S
