This eye-catching 1970 Pontiac GTO convertible holds a special place in GTO history. A pilot car built prior to the 1970 production run, it is body number 003 and carries VIN 00052. It is also immortalized as the Red-on-Red convertible prominently featured in the 1970 Pontiac sales brochure. It has been in the possession of the same owner for 28 years and remains in impeccable condition, from its 455 CI V-8 to the beautiful Red interior. This generously equipped and unique GTO comes with extensive PHS documentation.
