The Dodge GTS returned for model year 1969. With a total production of 6,285 units for the hardtop and 417 convertibles, it was the second largest number produced after the 1968. What reduced some of the GTS's numbers that year was the introduction of the 340 Swinger with a production total of 16,637. For 1969, the 340 returned as the standard powerplant ( 3645 made ) with the 383 optional ( 1912 made ) and also another late year introduction of the "M" code 440 ( 640 made )!! Along with its turquoise paint job, the 340 could keep pace with many of the big blocks of the era due to it's high powered 340, and it's reduced weight. The 383 and 440 car's performance was hampered by restrictive exhaust manifolds. It is not an easy fit in a A-body engine compartment. The feature of note for 1969 were the cast aluminum Kelsey Hayes "Recall Rims". Also, it was a year for federally mandated headrests and seat belt shoulder straps after the 1-1-69 production date. Before that, they were optional. This was the only year that Chrysler used side reflectors instead of newly mandated side marker lights!

    Quick 1969 Currently Registered Scorecard:

    340's : 149

  • Automatic: 106
  • 4 Speed: 36

    383's : 110

    The breakdown by transmission does NOT add up to the total number of cars. This is due to incomplete information from the car owners when submitting their info to the GTS Registry. However, it IS interesting to see the difference in 727 vs. 4 speed cars with more 727 cars with the 340 and more 4 speed cars with the 383 being reported.

    Made in Hamtramck:

  • LS27"G"9B1000**: GTS#498: Notice anything unusual about this VIN?? This GTS was built within the FIRST 25 cars for the 1969 model year! Not to mention is has a mis-stamped fender tag showing a "G" instead of the usual "H" code. The "G" is for a 383 2bbl in 1969 which we all know NEVER appeared under the hood of a GTS. Gerald in Alabama bought this earliest- known-built 1969 GTS in 1990 when in the process of being restored. How early is this?? This 1969 383 GTS was built on July 28th, 1968. This GTS is W1 white with a black soft top, red bucket seat console interior, and red bumble stripe. A 727 backs up the 383. This is a One-of-39 built GTS to begin with, but there is a Y91 code on the fender tag designating this as a "Show Car-no gas". This appears to be a early build GTS used to promote the 1969 model year. Is this the FIRST GTS built for 1969??? This ~may~ be a pilot car as well, and I am waiting on verification on that possibility. Other options include wheel and rocker mouldings, console tach, fender top signals, AM/FM radio, power brakes, and LH remote mirror. It looks like the GTS was placed in service 10-25-68 three months after being built. The GTS was then sold to the first owner in February of 1969 with 6299 miles on the clock. We can only assume that this GTS traveled on promo tours/dealerships for the first three months of its life racking up the 6299 miles, before being "sold" to a dealership where it sat for another three months (hopefully as a showroom centerpiece) before being actually SOLD in February if 1969. Gerald will be undertaking a full restoration of this historic GTS.

  • LS23P9B100***: GTS#230: Daniel C. found this relic GTS sitting in an Indiana cornfield for the past 10+ years. The R6 Red with R6 Red interior and white bumble bee have seen a better day!. The original 340 with the 727 have been gone a looooong time before Daniel found this one. This one was built on August 1, 1968. First day of production. Let's just say that it was built within first 500 Dodge cars off the line for the 1969 model year!!! Daniel is doing a restoration on this piece of GTS history. Here is a picture of the interior as Dan starts the resto process! UPDATE: Dan has started cutting the rear 1/4's and is starting to blast the past off the GTS's sheetmetal! Here is a picture of the new quarter welded in! Now, the question remains: Is this the first GTS made for 1969?????????

  • LS23P9B100***: GTS#177: Joe From Arlington, TX has a 340 GTS with three distinct characteristics. (1) is that this GTS was formerly owned by Joe M.-the owner of the "Tornado Survivor 1967 GTS-! (2) with a build date of August 1, 1968 this is one of the earliest GTSs we have in the Registry! And (3) Joe's GTS project is featured in the May 2005 issue of Mopar Muscle in the "Rare Finds" section on page 116!! Joe even managed to get a mention of the GTS Registry in the article!!! Way to go Joe!! This is an all original Y2 Yellow and with white interior and V8X black bumble bee stripe. Only options are P/S and A/C!

  • LS23P9B100***: GTS#150: This very, very early GTS was sent in by Pat. A T5 copper 340, automatic car. Stripe delete, with a console and the N85 factory tach.

  • LS23P9B101***: GTS#557: This is currently the fifth earliest built 1969 in the GTS Registry. Built on probably the second day of 1969 production on Wednesday, August 2, 1968. Owned by Roy V. this GTS is a 340 with a 4 speed backing it up. Roy's GTS is a total project car that is painted B5 Bright Blue with a white vinyl top and a B3 Light Blue interior. Options include fender top turn signals, 3 speed wipers, LH remote mirror, and tinted windshield. Roy is missing the drive train but is still hoping to trace the GTS' history back to hopefully find the original 340/4 speed.

  • LS23P9B101***: GTS#51: Sent in by Brian from British Columbia, Canada. This is a B5 Bright Blue "number's matching" 340 GTS. White vinyl top and a B3 light blue interior. This is a 3.91 geared 727 "stripper" GTS with no special options and no headrests.

  • LS23H9B102***: GTS#349: Pretty early production date as evidenced by the early VIN and with a August 1, 1968 build date! Frank G. from Minnesota just bought this 383 GTS in March, 2007. F8 Dark Green with a black top, interior, black bumble bee, redlines, and the W18 mag style wheel covers. It's powered by a 383.

  • LS27P9B103***: GTS#416: Karl resides in Ontario, Canada and he owns a very early build 340 convertible. His GTS is painted Y2 Yellow with a white soft top and black bumble bee stripe and sports a set of Magnum 500 rims (I wish Dodge had offered those as an option on the A-bodies).

  • LS27P9B103***: GTS#450: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE## As of 2/2/2014 new owner Nick from Vernon BC has GTS #450. The original listing is as follows:Calvin from Manitoba owns this VERY early build, 1 of 214, GTS convertible. This GTS was built on Friday August 9, 1968 and was only the three thousandth Dodge built for 1969. Calvin reports that the original 340 shows 1968 red paint on the block with no evidence of turquoise. With this early of a build date, it is POSSIBLE that this got a 1968 340. Cal's convertible is painted Y3 Cream with a white top and gold interior and is a V88 stripe delete car. It has a console shifted 727 trans with a console mounted N85 tach. Cal's GTS was also the very NEXT Dodge/GTS to follow behind GTS#416 above! Both are convertibles, and both now reside in Canada!

  • LS23H9B103***: GTS#10: One of the earlier GTS's produced. Build date 8-1-68. First day of 1969 production. Extensive fender tag listing. Possibly a dealer demo to showcase all the GTS options. A 383 auto GTS, Y4 Gold w/ black interior, vinyl top, and bumblebee. 18 options listed on the fender tag! Owned by Bryan.

  • LS23H9B104***: GTS#152: *PDR*: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE 11-2010## Now owned by Brandon G. from Florida. Here is the original listing:This 383 auto GTS was formerly owned by Bob T. and now resides in TX. Optioned quite nicely with AM-FM, P/B, all moldings and the N-85 console tachometer, A/C, LH remote mirror, and 3 speed wipers. It is Y4 Light Gold with the black vinyl top and now sports "Recall Rims" even though not originally ordered. This GTS was also built on the first day of production 8-1-68.

  • LS23P9B105***: GTS#294: Andrew hails from the North Eastern United States and he owns a fairly early build 340 GTS. B5 Bright Blue Metallic and black interior and black vinyl top are the colors for the 3.23 geared 1969 GTS. Andrew hopes to have the car restored by the summer of 2006. He started the restoration in 2000 by handing the car over to a "trusted" body shop. Three year's later, the car isn't touched, and all of the trim, latches, bulge hood bezels, rear finish panel and fender tag are missing!!! Unfortunately, this is a common story in the car restoration hobby! Andrew has since located all of the missing pieces and is steaming ahead with a proper resto!

  • LS23H9B108***: GTS#363: A very early build 1969 383 GTS. Robert B. owns this restored example. This GTS has the 383 backed up with a console shifted 4 gear box and the numbers match on the engine and trans. Robert's GTS is painted F8 Dark Green with a green interior.

  • LS23H9B111***: GTS#549: Joe W. from New York picked up this 1969 383 4 speed GTS. He is planning a full resto on the car. The car is missing the fender tag but with diligent detective work I think Joe will be able to figure out the options on his GTS.

  • LS27P9B113***: GTS#519: Richard S. sends in two more of his GTS collection. Richard also owns GTS#513-the 2500 original mile 1969 340 GTS (LS23P9B167***). Joining that ultra low mile original is this 1969 22,000 mile 340 convertible. This one has the 340 backed with a console shifted 727. The GTS was built on Monday, August 26, 1968 at the Hamtramck, MI assembly plant. Painted W1 White with a black soft top, black bumble bee, and black bucket seat interior. Other options included the AO1 and AO4 Light groups, fender top trun signals, AM radio, LH remote mirror, rocker and wheel well mouldings, and 3 speed wiper.

  • LS23P9B113***: GTS#539: Roy V. from the Lonestar State of Texas picked up this project 340 GTS. It is a 1969 GTS and a console shifted 727 resides behind the 340. An early build on Monday, August 26th of 1968, Roy's GTS left the Hamtramck, MI plant painted T5 Copper with a black bucket seat interior and black vinyl top. His GTS is a V88 Stripe Delete GTS. Other options included 3 speed wipers, fender top turn signals, AM radio, and tinted windshield.

  • LS23H9B114***: GTS#319: A early build 383 GTS that is owned by Rick W. in Missouri still carries its original K-H front disc brakes. But that is about the only thing still original on Rick's Pro Street GTS!! For motivation, the 383 has been replaced with a rippin' 440, 8" 4500 converter and 4.86 gears. Originally Y2 yellow with a black interior, Rick's GTS now is painted Metallic Aqua. The interior features a lot of custom "tin work" that prominently features numerous Chrysler Pentastars formed into the aluminum!

  • LS27H9B117***: GTS#379: This is a super rare GTS. Eric at www.musclemopars.com picked up this 1969 GTS and he is planning on making it a "keeper". Eric is the third owner. The GTS's second owner has owned it for 30 years and he knew the original owner personally with the car never leaving a 5 mile area around Chicago its entire life. This is a B5 Bright Blue Metallic GTS with B3 Light Blue interior white bumble bee, and white soft top. This is a number matching 383 with a 727 console shifted automatic. That makes this a 1 of 39 built car to begin with. Other options included bumperettes, both mirrors, woodgrain wheel, all mouldings, headrests on the bucket seats, fendertop signals, power steering and power brakes. The GTS also has the N85 console tachometer which is a pretty rare option also (approx. 11% of GTS production had the N85 tach). What really quite possibly sets this GTS into the "one of one" category is that Eric's GTS also was riding on the factory W23 cast aluminum rims-better known as the "recall rims"!!

  • LS23P9B117***: GTS#3: B5 Bright Blue hardtop owned by Frank R. from Michigan. 340 Four Barrel, Torqueflite727 and now a 4.30 SureGrip. B3 light blue interior. Console with N85 Tachometer, AM radio, power steering, drip rail/rocker/wheel well mouldings, fender top turn signals, and no head rests. Built on August 30, 1968 in Hamtramck, MI only 200 cars after GTS#379 above. A dealer stock car shipped to Tennessee. This GTS is drag raced on a regular basis in both Pure Stock Musclecar Drag Races. Current best time is 13.007 @ 104.6 mph. Check out my main web page HERE!!

  • LS23H9B117***: GTS#153: An original Grand Spaulding 383 GTS! Currently owned by Eric F. from IN, this one is a number matching GTS with a non-matching 727 Torqueflite. Eric is still waiting on the Mr. Norm's club to send him his original paperwork describing his red with black bumble bee GTS. Currently it is running a 4.10 SG, but was origianlly equipped with a 3.91.

  • LS23H9B118***: GTS#263: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE##: This GTS is now owned by Andy K. from California. Here is the orignal listing submitted by the previous owner: F8 Dark Green with a F3 Light Green interior mark this very bare bones 383 GTS! Joe H. from CA just picked up this "project" GTS. Joe is amazed that his new "toy" has survived without the usual modifications that involved cutting up fender wells or body panels! This one was ordered with only fender top turn signals and power steering. That's it! No stripe, vinyl top, or radio. Just a 383 and a 4 speed! At one time a 440 resided between the fenders, but Joe reports that he has located a date code correct 383 A-body and he has the important manifolds, radiator and transmission!

  • LS23P9B118***: GTS#35: Owned by Eric M. from Clearwater, FL. This is a "bare bones" 340 GTS. Early production so the white interior bucket seats are without headrests. It is a column shifted A727 automatic and 3.55 gear. Mostly original down to the points ignition, this is a F3 Green with V88 code stripe delete and "dog dish" hub caps that was featured in Chrysler Muscle Cars by Mike Mueller. It was the only GTS in the book! We get NO RESPECT!

  • LS23P9B118***: GTS#185: Jason P. from TX is doing owner history research on his 340 GTS. Currently, Jason has tracked it back to the second owner who purchased it in 1969! Coincidently, this car was built on Jason's birthday too- August 31st!! Fairly well optioned is this 340/727 B7 Medium Blue Metallic GTS. B3 bucket seat interior kept cool with tinted windows and AC. White vinyl top, front disc brakes, fender top signals, light package and 3.23 gears finish up this car! Good luck on the detective work, Jason!!!

  • LS23H9B119***: GTS#158: This Bright red w/red interior and black vinly top GTS is a 383, 4 sp car with the rare N85 console tach, other options include fender mounted turn signals, bumper guards, light package and disc brakes. The car has been owned by Richard from east Tenn. for last 19 years.

  • LS23P9B120***: A matching number 340 resides between the fenderwells of John U.'s 1969 GTS. However, John's mill produces a few more ponies than the stock 275hp. How does 638 horsepower at the flywheel sound?? John's GTS is a race car waiting for paint so he can turn a wheel at the dragstrip for the first time. This former Y2 yellow 340/727 GTS also had a black interior with the black bumblebee stripe. We'll have to wait a few weeks for the updated photos. John's 340 now sports a pair of W2 oval port heads drawing fuel from a 950 Holley on a Holley intake. A Crower roller cam, complete Mallory ignition, Wiseco pistons, Eagle rods, and ceramic coated headers churn out the power to the 4.56 gears. I can't wait to see the finished car, AND a timeslip!!!

  • LS27P9B130***: GTS#518: Andy K. has picked up another of the GTS's used in the TV series Mannix! This is a 1969 340/727 convertible customized by George Barris. Unfortunately, this GTS was used HARD and put away wet too often in its lifetime as it now needs a total restoration! Apparently this GTS was sold to a person back east who wrecked the front end. The GTS came back to California where it sat unloved in the Hollywood Motorama Museum before being sold at public auction. Andy picked up the GTS in 2001 after it had sat in an impound yard since 1989!! This GTS started out as a F8 Dark Green GTS with black interior, black soft top, and stripe delete before Barris worked it over! Andy also owned the 1968 Barris/Mannix GTS featured on the 1968 GTS Registry page. Andy spent eight (8) years restoring the 1968 Mannix GTS and is now ready to tackle the 1969 convertible.

  • LS27P9B136***: GTS#155: Q5 Turquoise and a black convertible top accented by a black interior and black transverse stripe set off Len R.'s 340GTS! This is a non console 4 speed GTS running power thru the 3.55 gear. Len lives in NY, and is looking for the original build sheet, engine block, and trans for his car. It is thought to be originally from the Collingswood/Cherry Hill, NJ area, or from the Philadelphia, PA area. The original owner probably worked at the RCA plant in Camden, NJ as is evidenced by RCA parking stickers on the mirror. Can anyone help Len out???? Len's GTS also has the build sheet of another GTS in it's bucket seat! This was a not uncommon foul-up on the line with build sheets getting mixed up in final assembly with seats of one car being installed into another car! HOWEVER, this appears to have another car's seats installed in Len's GTS. Just look at the VIN: LS23P9B329599. Len's is an early build GTS, while the build sheet's car was a much later built GTS! Anyone need this build sheet to re re-united with their car?? Or know the history of either one?!?

  • LS23H9B136***: GTS#76: F5 Medium Metallic Green and a F3 Light Green interior grace this 383 GTS residing in Oahu, Hawaii!!! Stormin owns this auto 727, 3.55 geared GTS that he purchased in 1997 in Shreveport, LA. This is his daily driver with the number matching 383 and trans in his garage. As you can tell by the emblem location, this is a "stripe delete" car!



  • LS27P9B139***: GTS#90: Scott is the third owner of this Q5 Turquoise 340 GTS convertible. A low option convertible with bench seats, fender top signals, bumperettes, and bumble bee delete. This is a "number's matching" 340 and 727 Torqueflite built on 9/10/68. Scott reports that scrapping thru layer and layer of engine paints revealed that his 340 left the factory painted turquoise!

  • LS23P9B139***: GTS#232: Scott M. from PA owns this modified GTS. Formerly a 340 4 speed car, Scott now rows the 4 speed behind a 360 and watches the revs via the N85 Console Tachometer! This former Y4 Gold car is now yellow with a black top, black bucket seat interior, and black bumble bee. Built on October 9, 1968, other options included were an AM radio and power steering. Scott's GTS has also appeared in a magazine article!!

  • LS23P9B139***: GTS#487: Jeff in Texas has a 451 stroker under the hood of his 1969 GTS. A 4-speed backs up the stroker. Jeff's GTS started out as a 340 car painted in F8 Dark Green. This GTS is now painted orange.

  • LS23P9B139***: GTS#538: First entry for 2013 is even more special because it is being registered from the United Kingdom!! Dave B. from Essex, UK imported his 1969 GTS from Belgium. He has owned his GTS for 35 years and has drag raced it for a number of those years with a 440 replacing the original 340. Dave is now restoring his GTS to bring it into the 21st century. The 440 now has a 408 in place backed by a floor shifted 727 and 3.23 gears. It is painted a unique color combo with Green interior.

  • LS27P9B139***: GTS#30: F5 Medium Green 340 Convertible with white top, interior, and bumble bee. Rare factory A/C, console, 727 Torqueflite, console, and AM-FM radio. Now owned by David H.!

  • LS23P9B140***: GTS#236: Dalis L. from CA bought this 340 GTS from Brett B. ( GTS# 235 ). This is a non-number match 340 4 speed car. B5 Bright Blue Metallic with a B3 Light Blue interior. White bumble bee and a black vinyl top finish off the "looks" department. Built on September 11, 1969 this GTS also has the N85 console tachometer.

  • LS23P9B141***: GTS#430: A true project car GTS was picked up by Robert. Originally built on September 16, 1968, this 340/727 left Hamtramck, MI wearing a B3 Light Blue Metallic paint job, black bumble bee stripe, black vinyl top, and B3 Light Blue bucket seat interior. Options included the A01 and A06 Light and Radio groups, drip rail and wheel well mouldings, fender top signals, LH remote mirror, and deluxe seat belts.

  • LS27H9B141***: GTS#154: A one-owner Big Block Convertible!!! Jack from Ohio bought this F8 drop top GTS new from Glavic Dodge in Clevleand while working at the dealership in 1969. The orignal window sticker shows this 727 Torqueflite, 383 GTS sold for $3900.00 and came with buckets, console, and tinted windsheld. The GTS is still in orignal condition having never been restored.

  • LS23P9B141***: GTS#399: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE## This GTS is now owned by Dave J. from Michigan. Here is the original listing: Rich from Ohio owns this T5 Bronze 340 GTS with a 4 speed. This is a stripe delete car with a white vinyl top and a white bucket seat interior. There is a dealer installed A/C unit, center console, and no head rests with a 9-16-68 build date.

  • LS27P9B142***: GTS#320: This is a cool looking 340 GTS!! Owned by the current owner since he was 16 years old (he is now 40!), he is keeping his GTS under wraps for the time being. What's cool about this 340 convertible's looks?? How about it's triple white with stripe delete!! White top on white interior on a white GTS! "Mr. Clean" would love this car!!!

  • LS27H9B143***: GTS#579: This One-of-39 1969 3873/727 GTS convertible is owned by George C. This is George's fifth Dart. This is a special one as it is a 383 convertible with the 727 trans and a 3.23 SG. Painted R6 Red with a white top/white bumble bee/and white interior this soft top is a great looking GTS on top of it. Other options include: buckets, console, power brakes, tinted windshield, fendertop signals, remote L/H mirror and C15 sound insulation.

  • LS23H9B143***: GTS#318: Mike T. from Michigan is keeping a hidden treasure stored neatly away in his heated garage. Mike picked up this 1969 "H" code 383 4 speed GTS for the sum of $1500! The car was heavily street raced in 1970-1974. It has the original T5 Bronze paint and only 50,000 miles on the odometer. Built on Tuesday September 17, 1968 other options include a black bucket seat console interior, moulding package, AM radio, and black bumble bee stripe. Mike does plan on rolling out his GTS and starting a resto back to stock soon!

  • LS23H9B143***: GTS#190: Tim P. from WI is the 4th owner of this 383 GTS. This is a former quarter miler evidenced by the 4.56 Dana spool, fuel cell, mini tubs, and full cage. Reportedly, this GTS ran 9.7 second 1/4 miles while under the influence of nitrous oxide. Tim plans on replacing the M.I.A. 383 with a 440.

  • LS23P9B143***: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE## Albert V. is now the proud owner of GTS #194. Updated on 11/24/2013. This is the original listing: GTS#194: Greg owns this fairly well optioned 340 GTSport! B5 Bright Metallic Blue with a V8X black bumble bee, P6X black bucket seat interior, and V1X black vinyl top is the color scheme! Other items include the A04 basic Radio Group, drip and sill mouldings, fendertop signals, A/C, tinted windows, 3 speed wipers, remote mirror, and AM radio round out the rest of the options!

  • LS23P9B144***: GTS#94: Ken from British Columbia, Canada is restoring this 340 automatic GTS.

  • LS23H9B145***: GTS#292: This "GTS" is apparently a rebodied 340 Swinger. See below after the "M" code section. This car is listed as a rebody. As of 3-5-07 the car is on ebay shown as a "real" GTS. This is a 4 speed with a white exterior framing the red interior and red bumble bee stripe. Has the wrong dash, interior, engine trim and color, wrong trunk finish, and just about everything else is wrong as well. Ths VIN listed here in the Registry is for a REAL GTS so I will leave it posted here.

  • LS23P9B146***: GTS#567: Wow! Rick from Akron, NY was driving home from work a few days ago and spotted this 1969 GTS-so he bought it. A true "barn find", this 340 GTS has been sitting for at least 30 years!! Thankfully the owner sold the GTS to Rick instead of giving the old excuse "I'll fix it up one day" and letting it rot into the ground. Rick reports that it is numbers matching and in need of a full restoration. But, the inportant fact is that this is a SOLID foundation for Rick to start with. This is a 340 GTS followed up by a 727 auto trans. Painted B3 Light Blue Metallic it also had the matching B3 Light Blue bucket seat interior and a white bumble bee stripe. Options included an AM radio, power steering, and 3 speed wipers.

  • LS23P9B149***: GTS#249: Barry from Wetaskwin, Alberta wrote to tell us he saw a letter in a recent issue of Mopar Action with a link to our GTS Registry. Barry's car is a 1969 GTS that he's owned since 1988. It's a 340 automatic car and uses a 3.55 sure grip differential to plant the power. Being nicely equipped the car has the rare P6R red bucket seat interior with console, R6 red exterior with a black vinyl roof and a black stripe. The car was originally sold at Parker Motors in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada and is in the process of being returned it to its original color.

  • LS23P9B149***: GTS#239: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE## bought in May 2014. Here is the original listing: This one is in Pennsylvania, and is a Q5 Turquoise with white interior 340/727 combo. Vincent R. has always appreciated the 67-68-69 Dart bodystyle. His first car was a yellow with black vinyl top 1967 GT with a 273!! Vincent picked up his Q5 GTS in 2001!

  • LS23P9B150***: GTS#371: A former race car that has been rescued by Daryl from Alberta. This GTS used to sport a big block with a 4 speed, fenderwell headers, and a mini tub that sported a set of 15x10x29 tires on a shortened 8 3/4 housing. This is an original 340 4 speed GTS that left the factory wearing F5 Medium Green paint, black interior, black bumble bee and it was radio delete. Built on September 24, 1968, Daryl plans on returning his GTS back to its factory fresh glory!



  • LS23H9B151***: GTS#126: Ken C. from MI owns this former T5 Copper Metallic 383 GTS. "Former" because it now sports a 440 ( while the original 383 is being rebuilt ) and it is painted black with a black top and white bumble bee! This is an early production GTS so the head rests were not ordered, but it does have the bumperettes and remote mirrors!

  • LS23H9B151***: GTS#15: *PDR*: B5 Bright Blue black vinyl top, black interior, and white bumble bee. This is owned by Jim R. and is a number matching 383 4 speed GTS. Bucket seat, but no console and a 3.23 SureGrip.

  • LS23P9B151***: GTS#115: Doug M. from Ontario, Canada owns this R6 Red 340 GTS. The original 340 is long gone, so Doug uses a M/P 360 short block, aluminum heads, solid cam with roller rockers and a manual shift 727 running thru 3.91 gears. This red GTS has a black top and interior, as well as the black bumble bee. Other factory options include: buckets w/ headrests, console, wood grain wheel, 3 speed wipers, light group, chrome trim package, power steering, and deluxe wheel covers. Doug's GTS is sporting rallye rims and the power steering has been converted to manual for the weight saving and the 2hp!!

  • LS23H9B151***: GTS#197: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE## Jay B. is the current owner of GTS#197 as of October 2014. The following is the original listing: Ernie K. owned his first car- a 1969 340 Swinger 4 speed. He ~loved~ that 340 car but always vowed to own a 383 GTS. His search has ended. Ernie picked up a B5 Blue with black vinyl top, white bumble bee stripe, 383 GTS from Indiana. It is a well used and abused example that is suffering on the outside, but runs G-R-E-A-T on the inside! Console, buckets, and a 727 Torqueflite will help Ernie realize the car of his dreams!

  • LS23P9B152***: GTS#12: R4 BrightRed Console shifted automatic 340 owned by Taylor from Alberta, Canada. Has a white vinyl top and white bucket seat interior.

  • LS23H9B154***: GTS#217: A former 10 second 440 powered GTS back in the 1970's, Christian A. from Idaho picked up this retired racer for $2300 in 1988. Keeping the car leanig towards its racer/custom past, Christian has gone the Street Machine route with his GTS. Originally, this was a B5, black vinyl top, black bucket seat interior car. Christian has painted it a more modern shade of blue, glued on a pearl white top, and installed a custom blue/white interior. Under the hood is a modified 383 followed by a 4 speed A-833 trans.

  • LS23H9B158***: GTS#285: Even though this 383 GTS was purchased in Michigan, it now resides under the caring eye of John M. in Nova Scotia, Canada. John is having this 383, 727, 4.10 geared GTS restored back to its original "look" with the green body work, black vinyl top and bumble bee, and white interior. However, John may be installing a 440 in place of the original 383!

  • LS23H9B160***: GTS#135: Originally a "red on red" 383 GTS, Tom from IN reports this one now has a black interior. 4 speed, 383, and fender top turn signals.

  • LS23P9B165*** GTS#411: Eric at MuscleMopars has just picked up another GTS. This time he scored a 1969 340 4 speed GTS. Painted F8 with a black vinyl top and black bumble bee. Numbers matching and with only 71,000 mile on the odometer.

  • LS27P9B166***: GTS#226: ##2nd OWNERSHIP CHANGE##: Rick from Las Vegas now owns GTS#226-updated 7-17-10-here is the previous owner info with the background of this 1 of 58 GTS: **Ownership update!** Joe M. from Texas now owns this B5 Bright Blue Metallic 340 convertible. This is a 4 speed GTS, with buckets, console, remote mirror, and headrests. A build date of October 4, 1968 means these headrests were an option. Gorgeous with the B5 ~set off~ by the white stripe, white interior, and white convertible top!

  • LS23P9B167***: GTS#513: What would you say about a 2580 ORIGINAL MILE GTS?!?!? Richard S. from PA owns this museum quality 1969 340 GTS. Richard is the second owner and he has ALL of the original owner's paperwork with the GTS. Richard claims his 340 GTS still has that new-car-smell and all of the redline tires still have the little tips on them! This GTS was built on Monday, October 7, 1968. The all-original 340 is backed with a 4 speed and 3.55 gears. Painted B7 Medium Blue Metallic with a black vinyl top and it is stripe delete. Other options include a console tach, fendertop signals, disc brakes, remote LH mirror, and wheel well mouldings.

  • LS23H9B167***: GTS#165: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE## Now owned by Ray B. from Illinois. Here is the original listing: Cory F. from LosAngeles, CA is starting the restoration of this 383 GTS. This GTS is a bucket seat interior with console shifted 727. Other options include 3 speed wipers, and drip and body mouldings. TWO oddities about Cory's GTS. (1) is that it came with both the white bumble bee stripe AND the GTS emblems mounted on the front fenders. These fender emblems were "usually" reserved for the convertibles, and STRIPE DELETE cars. Cory got them both. (2) the second oddity is the overall color combo of the car. This is a Q5 Bright Turquoise Metallic exterior, with a B3 Light Blue interior!!!! Can't wait to see it finished!

  • LS23H9B169***: GTS#38: F8 Dark green and with an interesting history. Currently owned by Jay H. of IL, and showing only 45,000 original miles. Jay purchased the GTS from a Chevy dealer in Booton, NJ in 1972. It has a black vinyl top and interior. The 383 shifts thru the 833 4 speed to a 3.91 SG rear end. Number matching and finished restoration in 1989. The restoration was started in 1982 after the vehicle was recovered after it was stolen. Missing for a year, the GTS was used in a bank robbery, so the three bullet holes had something to do with the start of the restoration!!!

  • LS23H9B171***: GTS#511: Craig from Colorado has owned this 1969 383 GTS since 1981. It is all original. Built on Wednesday 10/09/1968. The 383 has a 727 and a 3.55 gear. Painted F8 Dark Green with a white bumble bee and light green bucket seat/console interior.

  • LS23H9B174***: GTS#403: Sean from Ohio has preserved/resurrected this 383 GTS by performing a "rebody" on the car. The previous owner had a super rusty 383 GTS that he pulled off all of the GTS "specific" items and transferred them to a slant six Dart donor body. Sean is truthfully listing this as a rebody/clone, yet it retains the GTS VIN and heritage and parts. This is a B5 Bright Blue with white vinyl top and B5 interior. It is a 383 4 speed car. Look for it at the 2008 Mopar Nationals.

  • LS23H9B174***: GTS#101: R6 Red automatic 383 owned by Andy from WI. Check out the ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER for its options!!! This GTS is one of 4 documented by Galen Govier- Red with 383, and the only one currently known with white interior. Andy has a long way to go on the restoration of this neat combo!

  • LS23H9B175***: GTS#109: Owned by Kelly from IN, this is a F8 383 GTS with 727 Torqueflite and 3.91 SG. The build date on this one is October 14, 1968. This 383 GTS sat in the parking lot of a taxi cab company for several years before Kelly and her husband, Paul Jacob's of Jacob's restorations could talk the owner into selling it. This was a "daily driver" for two (2) years and is now receiving a full show worthy MOPAR restoration. A full restoration with a twist.......it will be painted F6 Bright Green Metallic to go along with the white interior!

    NOTE: The next five cars were all exported to Sweden or built in Holland! GTS#514-#330-#457 were all built within 6 cars of each other. I also find that the Euro VINs all were in the same VIN range of 176-177 for the first 3 digits even though two -GTS#264-#431- start with the EURO VIN of "9B". Facinating! Was this a block of cars built solely for EXPORT?

  • LS23P9B176***: GTS#551: This GTS Registry entry comes to us from Sweden! Goran R. bought his GTS on 8/28/1975 and drag raced his GTS with much success!!! His Golden GTS is a 340/727 with black interior and is stripe delete. I will try to contact Goran for his fender tag info to enrichen our understanding about exported GTSs! It looks as if they built a batch of these A-bodies for export as the currently registered GTSs from Sweden/Norway/Finland fall between approx. 510 unit VINs. Goran's GTS is the first of that group that I have on file! The last of that group is 510 cars down the line.

  • 9B176***: GTS#264: Yes, you read that VIN correctly!!! This is a Swedish "Export" GTS, and that is what the VIN looks like!! Krister from Gothenburg, Sweden owns this Pro-Streeted 1969 GTS that was sold new in Sweden. This exported gem is a 340 car with a 727 Torqueflite and 4.10 gears! Original color was dark red with a black vinyl top. Now it is painted silver with a black interior!!

  • LS23P9B176***: GTS#514: Norway sends us GTS #514! Robert B. from Norway now owns this 1969 340 GTS. The GTS was originally from Sweden, and was sold to a fellow Norwegian in 1997. Robert bought this race-only GTS 2 years ago. The 340 is long gone, and has been replaced with a race-prepped 440 with a manual shift 727 behind it. Orignally Q5 Turquoise, this GTS is now sporting a silver paint job. Robert has been working on his GTS since he bought it with a goal of making this race-only GTS street legal. He succeeded in November of 2011 and now this 440 GTS can terrorize both on the track and on the street!!

  • LS23P9B176***: GTS#330: Even though the VIN for this GTS indicates it was a USA built GTS-unlike the Swedish import VIN for GTS #264 above-the sequential number is just one number "off" from the GTS above?!?!? Bizarre coincidence wouldn't you say?!? This "import" GTS comes to us from Benny who also resides in Sweden!!! Limited info due to the language barrier, but Benny informs us that the car was brought to Sweden in 2003. It is a 340 GTS with a 727.



  • LS23P9B176***: GTS#457: Benny's mom (they live in Sweden) owns this 1969 340/727 GTS. It is painted Y4 Gold Metallic and has the number matching drivetrain. This GTS was delivered "new" to Sweden and is amazingly only TWO numbers behind Benny's GTS. Those are their two "mother and son" GTS's parked next to each other pictured above.

  • 9B177***: GTS#431: Not from Sweden for this GTS, but that is the correct VIN for a 1969 GTS built in Amsterdam, Holland and now residing with Mikko S. in Finland! Mikko has owned his GTS since 2001. This Euro GTS started out with a silver paint job and black vinyl top. Mikko has changed it to Orange with a custom black/red interior. The original bulge hood was damaged in an accident years ago so Mikko is using a flat hood but he will be mounting a S/S Hemi Dart scoop. That scoop will cover a 440/727 that has replaced the original 340/727.

  • LS23H9B177***: GTS#96: Josh from Iowa sends us this info for his 383GTS that is in need of a full restoration! It is a 4 speed bucket seat, 383, 3.91 Sure Grip car that is missing the engine and trans. Josh informs us the current color is "rust" but there are vestiges of the original F8 Dark Metallic Green in the engine compartment. Other options included the black interior ( no headreasts ), black vinyl top, R11 AM Music Master radio, S81 wood grain wheel, J41 pedal dress up, J11 glove box lock, S13 Rallye suspension, and C23 rear arm rests with ashtrays.

  • LS23H9B177***: GTS#355: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE##: Matt M. is now the happy owner of this 383 GTS! Here is the original listing: Joe N. (owner of GTS #353-the ModTop 383 GTS) has another couple of GTSs stashed away. Here is one of Joe's other cars. This one has a unique color combo as well, but not as unique as his ModTop car. This 1969 383 GTS is X9 black with the P6R/R6 red interior and a V8W white bumble bee stripe!!! Joe is starting the restoration on this one soon. The 383 and 4 speed are original to the car. Other options include the red bucket seat console interior, rocker and drip mouldings, tinted windshield, and AM radio. This car was built on Tuesday October 15, 1967. This is an older "custom" job with Centerline 15" rims and a custom red and black crushed velvet interior. Thankfully, Joe will be turning the clock back to 1969 instead of 1982 on this one!!

  • Ls23H9B211***: GTS#486: Gary B. from NY picked up his 1969 383 4 speed GTS in 1983. It was an odd color combo that Gary didn't feel looked ~right~.

    3 "M" code 440 GTS's at the 2003 Mopar Nationals!



  • LS23M9B224***: GTS#160: This is the FIRST "M" CODE PRODUCED!!! Sequence number is 900900!!!! WOW! This is as the "M" GTS looks now! Originally equipped as a B5 Bright Blue Metallic and a V1X black vinyl top and V8X black bumble bee stripe. About the only option on it was the remote control mirror! This 440 was built for racing, and here's a picture of it circa 1978 running 11.2's at 118mph! This was purchased at Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge and retains the number matching 440!

  • LS23P9B224***: GTS#333: Guy from Saskatchewan, Canada is now the owner of this 1969 340 GTS. Guy bought this GTS from a "friend of a friend" with a bit of a story behind it. The 340/727 GTS was liscensed in 1986 when it was purchased by a couple of brothers who wanted to rebuild the 68,000 original mile A-body. They removed the vinyl top, pop riveted a TransAm Firebird's scoop between the GTS hood bulges, and then coated the car with primer red. They pulled the engine and trans, and then promptly let the car sit in an open car port for the next 19 years!! Guy has rescued the GTS from this fate. He plans on returning it to its original B5 Bright Blue Metallic with B3 Light Blue interior. This is an original stripe delete car, so Guy is debating if he should keep as such, or he really wants to add a white stripe. Also, the jury is out if Guy puts the original black vinyl top back on too. Guy will be tackling the resto with his son and his brother and hope to fire the 340 by Spring 2007! Here is a photo of Guy's brother helping out.

  • LS23H9B225***: GTS#68: This F8 w/black vinyl top, white stripe and black interior GTS was ordered new in 1968 and is still with it's original owner after 33 years.

Put back to street trim the GTS still turns Mid 12's @ 109, and ran a best of 11.74 @ 114 during it's hey day. The GTS was ordered with the N85 tach, W18 simulated mag wheel covers, H31 rear defogger as well as a host of other options.

This "M" was ordered with the deluxe "mag style" wheel covers, AM radio, head rests, remote left side mirror, and a 3.91 geared SureGrip 8 3/4 rear end!!The car had been cut up in the past. As Ralph and Susan had to replace the inner fender wells to fix up where the previous owner had done some cutting for fenderwell headers!!

Used as a daily driver until 1978, this pristine GTS received a full resto in 2001. It is B5 bright blue metallic with white interior and a white vinyl top. It is a stripe delete GTS, but John has added a white bumble bee. The number matching 340 drives the rear wheels thru a 727 Torqueflite to the 3.23 SG rear!

  • LS23P9B235***: GTS#496: Guido bought his 1969 340 GTS with his brother in 2003. Bought as a project car his GTS was missing the 340 and the complete interior. This GTS is a bit of an oddity--possibly a One-of-One for the GTS Registry!! This is a stripe delete, bench seat (optional) and column shift 727 auto! Usually we see the column shift 727 along with bucket seats and built at the Los Angeles plant-not from Hamtramck, MI. But Guido's GTS's orignal owner also opted for the column shift AND optional bench seat as well! Along with locating a 1969 casting 340, Guido and brother did all of the bodywork, mechanical, and electrical restoration. The only deviation from stock was the addition of a black bumble bee stripe on top of the new F8 Dark Green paint. The addition of shiny Crager rims looks great too!

Bob bought the car in 1978 for $350 (!) with 96,000 miles on the clock. He restored the car from 1989 to 1991 having to replace the floor pan amongst other tasks to bring this 383 GTS back to its glory. The GTS came with a 999 paint code, but was wearing T5 Bronze when Bob bought it. He has since painted it Y2 Yellow with a black soft top and black bucket seat interior. The GTS was also a radio and stripe delete car as well. Very strange options along with the 999 paint code for "mom" to be driving. Bob has drag raced his GTS and piloted it to a best of 13.35 @ 103.9 mph.

  • LS23M9B238***: GTS#344: T5 Copper with white interior and white top owned by Bill S. from AZ.

  • LS23H9B241***: GTS#402: George from Alaska has a LOT of work on his hands with his 1969 383 GTS. It is a 383 GTS with a 727 Torqueflite and 3.23 axle. B5 Bright Blue with a B3 Light Blue bucket seat interior. This is a V88 "stripe delete" car with other options including rear defogger, power disc brakes, and it was built as a Y09 "export" car. George is rounding up parts for the restoration as the previous owner wrecked the GTS (in the late 1980's), and then started to sell off the GTS "specific" parts on the web such as the 383 manifolds, trunk finish panel, and such.

  • LS27P9B241***: GTS#322: Paul from Ohio owns this 1 of 58 convertible 340 4 speed GTS. He picked it up in 1981 and has had it securely put away for the last 10 years. Paul will be tackling the restoration of his GTS as his retirement project. Paul's GTS is a 4 speed convertible with a BENCH seat! A pretty barebones car with only the convertible, AM/FM radio and mag style wheel covers as the only options. The car was purchased around New Year 1969 in Dayton, Ohio. White with a black top, stripe, and interior. The original drivetrain is long gone, but Paul is already collecting the proper parts to correct the situation. Paul remembers that winter of 1969 as he and his young bride had just gotten their first apartment. He wonders about the first owner picking up his convertible with several inches of snow on the ground and temperatures in the 20's!!!

  • LS23H9B241***: GTS#311: This is the infamous "L" code GTS that is mentioned in the "Breaking the M code" section at the bottom of the 1969 GTS Registry page. Tom R. purchased this 383 4 speed car is is doing his best to restore the dash VIN tag to its proper numbers. Thankfully he paid a fair price for the car as it sits! This is a red 383 4 gear car that has been converted to 440 power with Edelbrock heads, headers and such. We thank Tom for taking on this endeavor, and we wish him the best!!

  • LS27P9B242***: GTS#543: Chris K. from California has owned his 1969 GTS since 1973 and it has been in storage since 1986. We hope that Chris will start the restoration soon on his rare GTS. Why rare?? This is a one-of-214 1969 340 GTS convertible. The 340 is backed with a console shifted 727. Very neat color combo (which is the main reason Chris was attracted to the GTS in '73) with R4 Bright Red paint with a white top, white bumble bee, and white bucket seat interior!!! Other options include power steering, power disc brakes, and A/C!

  • LS23P9B242***: GTS#63: This Q5 Bright Turquoise Metallic GTS resides in MI and is owned by Douglas G. It is a 340 automatic and is set off with its white interior. Other options included AC, rear defrost, power disc brakes, light group, bumper guards, molding group, and wood grain wheel.

  • LS23M9B245***: GTS#510: Patrick Dean (who so gratiously sent me his old GTS Registry paper work) tells me of his former 1969 M-code 440 GTS that he sold in 1989! I have decided to enter this GTS into the GTS Registry because it is a KNOWN GTS and because Patrick led the way for other GTS owners to register their cars waaaay before the internet! Patrick's GTS was sold new in Utah at Hinckley Dodge. Pat was the eighth owner when he bought it in 1988. The GTS was on its fourth engine (2-383's and 2-440's) and was painted silver. The owner before Patrick painted it back to its original T5 Copper Metallic and had a 440 back under the hood. Other options included a black bucket seat/console interior, black vinyl top and black bumble bee stripe. The 440 had the only trans available behind it (727) and a set of 3.91 SG gears. It came with dog dish hub caps, AM radio, rocker and drip rail mouldings, bumperettes, and is the ONLY documented M-code to come with front disc brakes! Patrick sold the GTS to a fellow in Massachusetts in 1989. Where is this 440 M-code now?????

  • LS23M9B246***: GTS#31: A "M" code 440 GTS. Owned by Don from MI, this "M" was built on Dec.1, 1968. It is a "bare bones" B7 Blue car. A "bruiser" for the streets with its B7 flanks accented with black vinyl top, black interior, and black bumble bee! This is a restored 35,000 original mile GTS.

Kurt premiered his "M" code at Las Vegas "Mopars on the Strip" and walked away with a number of awards, and plenty of praise for his completed GTS. The 440 under the hood looks as good as the rest of the GTS.

  • LS23H9B261***: GTS#521: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE##: Charles P. from Maryland now owns GTS#521. Listed on 6/19/2014. The GTS is now fully restored. Searching the web for a big block GTS project, Bryan Z. in Washington State found one a few miles over in another town. That is the way it always works out!! Bryan scored a 1969 383 GTS with 47K original miles on the clock. The original 383 is long gone, but there is a fresh 440 under the hood. The rest of the drivetrain is original to the GTS-a 727 backed with a SG 3.23 gear. The GTS is B5 Bright Metallic Blue, with a blue/white bucket seat-console interior, black vinyl top, and white bumble bee stripe. Other options include: all 3 moldings, power steering, RH mirror, rear defogger, fender top signals, and the Deluxe wheel covers.

  • LS23M9B266***: GTS#195: Don B. from California is the original owner of this "M". He bought it new in March of 1969 at Saddleback Dodge in Tustin, CA, and has had it titled, registered, and insured every year since then!! Even though always garage kept, Don used his 440 GTS as a bracket racer. This is still a numbers matching engine and trans car. B7 Dark Blue with V8W white bumble bee and B3 Light Blue interior. He still has all the original equipment taken off the car for racing purposes. That will make it an easy resto when he decides the time is right! The odometer reads 62,000 original miles!!

  • LS23M9B266***: GTS#42: *PDR*: Originally a F5 Medium Green with F3 Light Green "M" code GTS, it is now painted Hemi Orange with a black bumble bee.

Built on Jan. 14, 1969, it is now a street driven, non-number matching, GTS waiting for a full resto from Tim. He has the original exhaust manifolds, and luckily, the fenderwells had never been cut in the past!

  • LS23M9B266***: GTS#286: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE##: Richard G. from Ohio now owns this 'M" code. The 440 GTS is now complete!! Here is the original listing: *PDR*: This "M" code 440 GTS was used by Car Craft magazine as a test car in 1969. It was purchased new at Saddleback Dodge in May, 1969. The car was modified and then sold by the magazine. Chuck V. from California purchased this GTS in 1996 with only 7000 miles showing on the odometer. This low mileage was accumulated the hard way-a 1/4 mile at a time! The car's sheetmetal had been cut up/modified for racing. Chuck is now doing a rotisserie resto on this "M" and returning it to its former self. F8 Dark Green paint with green interior! The number matching 440 is under the hood!! We'll keep you updated on the progress.

  • LS23P9B277***: GTS#359: ##OWNERSHIP CHANGE X 2##: Newest owner for #359 is Curt from Pennsylvania. Previous owner for #359 was Alan M. from MI.

This is a 340/727 GTS that was W1 white with a black bucket seat interior, black vinyl top, and black bumble bee. Built on Monday, January 27, 1969, options include tinted windshield, AM radio and fender top turn signals. Brought home in July, 2007 Dave has been working hard to restore his GTS. Less than one year later, the project is nearing completion. All Dave needs is to put the bumblee bee stripe in place, and fire up the 340 and he's ready to go. Dave's work really paid off as his GTS looks SHARP with the bumble bee stripe in place!

  • LS23H9B282***: GTS#189: Glenn M. from NH is the current owner of this 383 4 speed GTS. He purchased the car from Michigan, but it originally came from Iowa.

  • LS23M9B282***: GTS#207: Mitch from Ohio is the third owner of this 440 "M" code GTS. Thought to be originally purchased from Miami Valley Dodge in Dayton, OH, this GTS changed hands the first time not long after it was originally sold-1970. The second owner drove the GTS ~HARD~ as it lived its life as a street racer until 1978 when it was parked until Mitch rescued it in 1989. The car had lost its original 440, as well as it was sporting a number of the era's modifications: headers, hood scoop, and traction bars! Mitch did a resto of it in the early 1990's and he will perform an all out resto in the near future. This is a F8 Dark Green with white bumble bee and no vinyl top GTS. F3 Light Green interior options include a wood grain wheel, AM radio, and N85 console tachometer. This "M" code's fender tag shows a "Build Date" of January 31, 1969. Now, we just need to convince Mitch to get rid of the Rallye Rims!!!

  • LS23M9B282***: GTS#482: What a nice way to start off the 2011 season with a 440 "M" code entry! Jim D. from CA bought this 1969 440 GTS from the original owner in 1974. From 1974 to 1982 the GTS lived a life as a 10 second bracket racer. The B5 Bright Blue GTS had a tunnel ram intake, 727 trans and a 4.88 narrowed Dana 60 out back. It sat in Jim's garage until 1994 when Jim decided to detune the GTS and put it back on the street. Even in its detuneed state, the car was a handful on the street, so back in the garage it went. It shows 10,000 miles on the odometer.

  • LS23P9B284***: GTS#544: Roger H. from Calgary, Alberta traveled over to British Columbia to pick up his 1969 GTS. This GTS is a former race car that has been sitting for at least 20 years.

  • LS23P9B284***: GTS#476: Klaus H. from GERMANY found his 1969 340 GTS languishing in a Switzerland junk yard/collection. The father/son owners of this "collection" were ordered to clear out 800 vehicles by the Swiss authorities. The vehicles ranged from the 1930's to present models. Klaus spotted the "GTS" emblems in a photo on the internet and he decided to take the plunge and buy an American Musclecar. This 340 GTS was built as a Y09 EXPORT by Dodge on Tuesday February 4, 1969. It is a nicely optioned GTS. Painted Y4 Light Gold Metallic with a black vinyl top, black bucket seat interior, and it is V88 stripe delete and it cleaned up nicely after Klaus brought it home to Germany.

  • LS23P9B284***: GTS#456: Brad D. from IN bought his GTS thru a friend's friend after pursuing it for 15 years. Painted Y2 Yellow with a black vinyl top and black bucket seat console interior. A black bumble bee contrasts against the Y2 yellow paint. The 340 turns the 727 and a 3.23 SG rear end.

  • LS23H9B284***: GTS#445: Bill from Idaho owns this 1969 383 GTS that has a very intersting past. Bill picked up the GTS in 1987 anfter he found it in an alley with no engine/trans, inner fender wells torched out, no interior, a B-body Dana 60 under the trunk floor, and it was sporting some handmade fiberglas rear fender flares! Bill is starting to finally work on the GTS. It is painted with a green sealer to preserve the body. Under the hood Bill has a 440-6 pk with Hooker headers and a 727 TorqueFlite with a 4.10 gear in the Dana 60. This is an orignal F5 Medium Green car with F5 vinyl top and black bucket seat console interior. Bill is still undecided if he will restore his GTS to factory fresh, or continue with the hot rod theme.

  • LS23H9B287***: GTS#314: Mike from PA has done a really nice job of recreating his brother's old 1969 383 GTS.

Craig found this GTS when it was painted orange, and he has started to turn this 340 GTS back to some semblance of its former self. It was originally B5 Bright Blue with a white vinyl top, white interior, and white bumble bee. Right now, the car is B5 with painted roof, and a black interior.

It had then resurfaced only 10 miles from Jeremy's home on the side of the raod with a "For Sale" sign in the window. As far as Jeremy can tell, this is a 340 4 speed with a 8 3/4 SG and power disc brakes. The rear quarters are 68's while a 67 grill sits up front.

According to Ray, an old issue of MoparMuscle indicates this GTS came out with no engine and was shipped to Hurst for the 440 conversion. This we learned is not what happened!! Ray's "M" still has the orignal spare in the trunk!!

Also, this is a number matching car! ##UPDATE## Ron has now finished the 3 1/2 year second restoration on his white "M" code. The 440 under the hood sports some minor deviations from stock, and the paint and body looks outstanding. Congrats go out to Ron for saving another GTS.

This GTS has a white interior and white bumble bee stripe. George had also owned another "M" code at the same time. He is in the process of restoring this 80,000 original mile car. The number matching 440 and 727 had been parted out before George bought the GTS. He has since located a 440'Cuda engine and trans to replace the missing OE pieces. George does have the proper radiator and exhaust manifolds specific to the 1969 "M" code. George has even located a set of "recall rims" and his 440 GTS will be riding on those soon.

  • LS23H9B313***: GTS#271: Brian from NC owns this slightly modified former 383 GTS. "Former" because it now has a 440 residing between the fenderwells. A 833 4 speed with 4.11 gears backs up the 440. This was a black with with bumble bee stripe GTS that is now painted with 1998 Chrysler Maroon. It retains the original black interior.

  • LS23H9B315*** GTS#261: Karl L. just picked up this "field car" 383 GTS. It has been ~out to pasture~ since 1981 and even though the car is a mess, it is all there! This is an orignal F6 Bright Green Metallic (Rallye Green) car with a white interior and V88 bumble bee delete!

  • LS23H9B316***: GTS#32: This is a 67,000 orig. mile 383 4 spd. GTS. B5 Bright Blue, B3 interior, and black vinyl top. Owned by George F., this GTS was equipped with 3.23 gears, light package, P/S, dog dish caps, and still has the ORIGINAL spare tire.

  • LS23H9B319***: GTS#348: Bill T. is the third owner of this Q5 Turquoise 383 GTS. The car has only 72,000 original miles on the clock and has spent its life in the northwest. Starting in Vancouver B.C. (where Bill found it 17 years ago) and now resides with Bill in Alaska. This 383 GTS is backed with a 727. A black vinyl top and white interior and white stripe work well with the Q5 Turquoise. Manual steering and manual drums came standard, but a rear defogger was marked off on the option sheet.

  • LS23H9B320***: GTS#125: Another odd-ball color combo GTS! This one comes from central PA and is now owned by Derek K. Derek purchased this 383 GTS as a "barn fresh" show room model with 32,000 miles showing on a 1981 inspection sticker! The GTS was optioned as following: Light group, drip rail and body sill moldings. Bucket seat, console and AM radio. This March 13, 1969 built 383 is shifted thru a 4 speed to the 3.23 gears. Now for the oddity.......this is a stripe delete black ( with black vinyl top ) with a F8 GREEN interior! To top this off, it also shows a Y09 "Export Order" stamped on the fender tag!!! Figure that one out!

  • LS23H9B321***: GTS#413: Bob from Chicago just picked up this 1969 383 GTS project car. It is all original, but in need of a total restoration.

This is originally a F8 Dark Green 383 4 gear car. Here is where Chas's ~twist~ comes in.........there is now a 440 lurking under the hood with 4.10 gears behind the A833 4 speed box! Chas did change over the hood call-outs to "440 Four Barrel" just to warn the unsuspecting competition! Here is a photo that Chas sent of him and his GTS "back in the day"!! Great photo!!

  • LS23H9B325***: GTS#372: Joe N. from St. Louis, MO picked up his third GTS. He also owns GTS#355 that is black with a red interior and GTS#353 that is a ModTop GTS. Obviously a fan of cool color combos, Joe's new addition is a number match 383 GTS painted R1 Red with a white vinyl top, white interior, and a white bumble bee. Even thought this is an original V88 "stripe delete" car, we can't argue with how good that white stripe sets off the roof and interior against the red body! This GTS was built on Tuesday March 18, 1969 and had 3 speed wipers and a remote LH mirror, A01 light package and the A04 Basic Radio Group.

  • LS23H9B331***: GTS#56: **Ownership UPDATE!** This Y2 Yellow/Black vinyl top and black interior GTS was originally a stripe delete car. Restored in 1994, it got a black tail stripe as a gift at that time. This car also has rare N85 tach, a nice touch with the 383, auto, and 3.91 gears. Very original along with a "numbers matching" 383 and 727TF!! This 383 GTS is now on its third different owner since joining the GTS Registry!! Chad M. from California has just sold this car to Todd H.

To park next to the 'Cuda, Mark has picked up a 1969 383 GTS that he has known about for his entire life.

A 340, 727 automatic with 3.23 gears this GTS was built in March of 1969, and has white interior with blue dash, carpet and console. Having been painted by a "Brand X" guy, Jim thought the paint to be a few shades to dark and has stripped the car to shell for total restoration to "as-new" condition. Jim has completed the restoration of his convertibel and was invited to the 2007 Chryslers at Carlisle pavillion for 2007! Here is his proper B5 GTS in the Exhibition Hall.

  • LS27P9B339***: GTS#515: Steve H. is now the proud owner of a one-of-214 1969 GTS convertible. The 340 has a column shifted 727 and a bench seat interior which will indeed make this even more rare and the total production number of 214!! The convertible is painted T5 Copper with a white interior and Steve is the third owner.

  • LS23H9B340***: GTS#14: *PDR*: Another 383 GTS owned by Jim R. ( lucky guy! ) This is a Q5 Turquoise Metallic black vinyl top 4 speed GTS. Black bumble bee stripe that's a story in itself!! Jim's car came from the factory with the correct GTS stripe on the drivers side but had a 340 Swinger stripe on the passanger side!!!! Deluxe hub caps, sill moldings, and fender top signals round out the exterior. The black buckets, AM radio and console round out the interior.

  • LS27H9B340***: GTS#46: ##Ownership Update## Now owned by Dean C. from Arizona!! This GTS is (formerly) owned by Dan and Gary from Montreal. This time it's a F8 383 4 speed Convertible with a white bench seat interior. Build date is 3-31-69.

  • LS23H9B340***: GTS#210: Even though the VIN contains "340" this is a black on black "383" GTS owned by Kevin Z. from WI. The replacement 383 and 4 speed came about back in 1972 when the original 383, 4 speed, and hood were stolen. Kevin has a receipt from 1972 that shows the purchase of a replacement hood with latch and chrome for all of $81.00!!! Kevin would like any info in regards to finding the original engine and trans.

  • LS23P9B341***: GTS#436: Doug from NY owns this 1969 340 GTS that has a nice set of options on the car. This 340/727 has a 3.55 8 3/4 and is painted F5 Medium Green Metallic with matching F5 Medium Green interior. This GTS has buckets seats, but the 727 is shifted via a column shifter instead of the console shifter. The 340 and trans are original number matching to the car and have only 60,000 original miles on the odometer. Other options included AC, power steering, 3 speed wipers, and a AM/FM radio. Doug's GTS was built on April Fool's Day (401) 1969!

  • LS23M9B341***: GTS#161: Another M code saved from drag strip duties by Charlie K. from OH. This white 440 GTS is a number matching 52,000 original mile GTS. Black bumble bee and a vibrant red interior round out the visual cues! Equipped with the 727 and 3.55 gears, this M code was originally sold in Columbus, OH and spent most of its life running a quarter mile at a time!

  • LS23M9B342***: GTS#50: Quite a history with this one. Owned by Randall from NC, this is a stripe delete V2 Hemi Orange "M" code GTS that was originally purchased at Northland Dodge in Colombus, OH. The second owner purchased the GTS with only 7500 original miles, and it now carries only 11,775 miles and hasn't seen the light of day since 1982. This was a drag strip only car. Participating in the 1970 NHRA Nationals in Indy, and a class winner at Dragway 42. Now sporting a narrowed rear end, 6 point cage and wheel tubs. It has the original interior, which Randall will replace with repop pieces. Randall intends on keeping the GTS as a "pro street Day 2" type project. Plans for a "built" 496 stroker hidden under the stock appearing paint, valve covers, and air cleaner. Randall also intends on reproducing the funky white highlights around the wheelwells to keep that 1970's flavor!

  • LS27P9B343***: GTS#536: Chris K. in Maryland is the 2nd owner of this one-of-214 1969 340 GTS convertible. The 340 is backed by a 727 and 3.55 gears.

This GTS was also run in Street Eliminator running mid-13's!

  • LS23M9B344***: GTS#520: Richard S. loves his 1969 GTSs!! This is his third entry (so far) and joins his 2500 mile and 22,000 mile cars GTS#513 and GTS#519. This one is special too as Richard seems to stay away from the "ordinary" GTS! GTS#520 is a 440 M code GTS. Built in batch #902030 on Saturday, March 29, 1969. Painted B5 Bright Blue with a B3 Light Blue bucket seat interior and white bumble bee stripe. The 440 is backed by the only trans availabe with the 440: the 727 Torqueflite. Low optioned as the only two options are the wheel well and drip rail mouldings. Have to cut down on that racing weight anyway we can!

  • LS23M9B346***: GTS#288: Built on march 29, 1969, this "M" code 440 GTS had lived a hard, hard life, but is now in the good hands of John H. from Massachusetts!! John bought this ragged out 440 GTS back in 1984, and completed the restoration in 1996. Among the most notable original features still with the car are the numbers matching 440 and 727, along with the original red line E70-14 in the trunk!!! The 440 has been built to withstand today's lower octane no lead fuel with 9:1 compression and hardened seats. The car is F3 Light Green Metallic with the F3 interior and black bumble bee stripe. Only options are the AM Music master radio and N85 Console Tachometer.

  • LS23P9B347***: GTS#33: A Canadian based, partially restored, 340 GTS owned by Chris C. from Alberta. This was an original gold w/ black top now yellow and black GTS. It still retains the original gold interior. The 340 automatic is backed by a 3.55 8 3/4.

  • LS23M9B350***: GTS#376: The first entry for December 2007, and it is a 440 "M" code GTS!! This F3 Light Green 440 GTS is owned by Don A. It was built on March 29, 1969. Don is the third owner of this original Grand-Spaulding Dodge bought GTS. It is undergoing a rotissiere restoration to return to its factory fresh roots. F3 paint, with F3 light green interior and green vinyl top contrasted with the white bumble bee stripe. Don has the number match 440 under the hood, but is looking for a 727 to mount behind the RB engine. Don has been a long time fan of the Scat pack Dodges, and always dreamed of owning a bumble bee striped car. He certainly hits a home run with his first one!!

  • LS23M9B351***: GTS#548: ##OWNERSHIP CHANGE##--James T. from Texas now owns GTS #548 as of July, 2014! He will continue the restoration started by Jim G.

  • LS27P9B355***: GTS#369: Larry A. picked up this one of 58 1969 340 GTS 4 speed convertible. The car was originally sold at Dave Shank Dodge in Whittier, CA in 1970. It had been a Special Order car that ended up gathering dust in the back lot of the dealership until 1970! There was interested soul in the GTS and he picked it up a year after it was ordered! By that time, he liked the 1970 rallye rims (yuck) and had the dealer mount them on the car in place of the steelies and wheel covers. If you think one of 58 is rare (it is) then also consider that Larry's convertible is also a factory A/C car. Other options on the F8 Dark Green convert are a AM/FM radio, black bucket seat console interior, black soft top, stripe delete, 3 speed wipers and disc brakes.

  • LS23P9B355***: GTS#469: Rob K. from San Francisco has been watching and waiting for this 1969 GTS for the past 20 years. It belonged to his friend, and has not been started for the last 16 years. Rob finally convinced his buddy to let this 340 4 speed GTS switch owners and land in Rob's garage. This is an all original GTS that is in the process of having the paint and body work completed. It was equipped with the W1 White paint job with a black interior and black vinyl top, however, it is a V88 Stripe delete car.

  • LS23P9B357***: GTS#93: A B3 Light Blue Metallic "V88 Stripe Delete" GTS sent to us from Pete B.. 340 4 speed car with B5 bucket seat console interior.

  • LS23M9B357***: GTS#196: Another former race car hopefully returns to the street thanks to Winton W. from MI. This "M" code is W1 White with the red vinyl interior. Reportedly, this "M" was stolen from the HotRod Magazine parking lot before they could test the car. The car was recovered, and spent the remaining years on the drag strip!

  • LS23M9B357***: GTS#328: Andrew B. from Indiana now owns this 1969 440 "M" code GTS. His dad's buddy owned the car in the late 1970's. Originally used as a street racer, the car was mini tubbed around 1979 and then turned into a bracket bomber. Running in the high tens until about 1990-1992, the car was sold to a local farmer. The new owner parked the "M" code outside his barn for the next 15 years before Andrew rescued the forgotten GTS. Bought in March, 2004, Andrew had the 440 back on the track by August, 2004. The best time for the black "M" code is currently 11.34 @ 115.76. Andrew will have a new paint job in the "works" soon!! Update!! Andrew got his "M" code painted silver with a black hood!!!

  • LS23M9B357***: GTS#278: Currently, this "M" code GTS is owned by Brian J. The real story behind this GTS comes from its original Al C. from Illinois. Al picked up the red 440 GTS by trading in his 1965 GTO. Not satisfied with the 440's performance(?!?) Al swapped in a Hemi from a wrecked 1968 Charger. Amongst the usual modifications, Al installed a Vertex magneto, big tube Hooker Headers, a Keith Black induction system involving a quartet of Weber 48MM IDA twin injectors, and a pair of 24K. GOLD plated valve covers. The Hemi "M" spent the next 10 years shuttling Al back and forth to work (!!!) and then spending the nights ripping the asphalt apart in street racing duels! In 1979, the "Wild Thang" was sold off in sections. Brian J. now owns the rolling chassis sans engine/trans/interior. The car awaits a restoration. The story takes a "Wild Thang" twist. Al C. (Remember him? The original owner) found his original red "M". The owner at that time had both the red "M" and a white Hemi Dart. The owner had passed away. Brian J. picked up the old red "M" from the estate, and Al bought the white 340 Swinger that had been Pro-Streeted and had a Hemi in the engine bay. His old "M" needed too much money, time, and work for Al to consider buying it back. How are these two connected, you ask??? The Hemi in the white version of Al's Hemi GTS is topped off by the original Keith Black induction system that graced Al's old "Hemi" GTS. That system was on display in an area speed shop after Al parted out his red GTS. The Weber topped manifold was stolen from the speed shop, recovered some month's later, sold to someone in Chicago, then wound its way to California. Al located the system years later and bought it back because he missed looking out over the 8 shiny induction stacks!!

  • LS23M9B357***: GTS#: Here is the original listing: A "M" code R4 BrightRed GTS built on 4-27-69. This GTS was built 13 cars before Jan's T5 Copper 440. This one is owned by Wayne K. from MN. Having a black interior and a 3.55 SG, this Dodge was ordered thru White Bear Dodge. Formerly raced under the "Undertaker" name, and saved from the "crusher", this GTS has been given a full rotisserie restoration. Recently featured in the June2004 issue of Musclecar Enthusiast, Wayne can now produly proclaim he has a "Magazine car"!! Congrats to Wayne!

  • LS23M9B357***: GTS#225: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE##:OWNERSHIP UPDATE #2-10/25/2012: Vince M. is the current owner for GTS#225. There was at least one more owner between Dave H. from MN owning this GTS and Vince as Vince bought the M code out of MA. Here is the previous update and original listing: OWNERSHIP UPDATE #1-Dave H. from MN (also owns GTS#324) now owns this "M" code. Dave plans on retiring the old race horse and doing a full resto on the GTS over the next few years. Here is the original listing: George S. from IL. owns this "M" code that has been heavily modified during its lifetime. George found this "M" at a State Police auction. He had to dig deep to fine the original green under shaved door handles and emblems of the RED painted GTS. The rusty, holed floored panels were replaced, a set of Weld wheels and M/T slicks replaced the rotted old rubber and rusty Cragers. The fender tag and broadcast sheet are loooong gone, but the VIN matches in all three locations. Still sporting a 440 and a 727, George's "M" runs low 12's at 110mph!

  • LS23M9B357***: GTS#21: T5 Copper automatic "M" code 440 now owned by David H.. This "M" code is in need of a complete restoration. Accenting the T5 Bronze is a white top, and black interior and bumble bee. David reports that there is no engine or transmission currently with the car!

  • LS23P9B363***: GTS#224: Mark P. from Texas owns this "celebrity" GTS! His 340 GTS was featured in the Dodge Dart & Plymouth Duster book authored by Steve Statham on pages 46-47 and on the back cover!! This is a B5 Bright Blue Metallic with black interior and vinyl top. Very low optioned original car. Buckets seat with 727 shifted console, 3.23 SureGrip, and woodgrain wheel. "Poverty caps" on black wall tires with a black bumble bee give it a tuff stance! Since purchasing the GTS in 2004, Mark has added factory A/C, power steering and power disc brakes to make up for the OE option deficiency!!

  • LS23H9B364***: GTS#336: Larry S. did not want his buddy Guy's (GTS#333) to be the only Saskatchewan, Canada GTS!! Larry is also the original owner of this 383 4 speed GTS! Larry bought this one for $3851.00 (CDN) and was invoiced at the dealership on May 19, 1969. Larry opted for the B5 Bright Blue Metallic interior, white interior, and stripe delete. Larry was mis-informed at his dealership about the availability of the white vinyl top with his B5 GTS. So Larry ordered up the V02 Two Tone paint and got a rare white PAINTED top!! Larry thought he had ordered it with a radio, but it turns out this is also a RADIO DELETE car. Larry also ordered up power brakes, white wall tires, A01 Light Group and mouldings.

  • LS23H9B372***: GTS#284: Guy from New York owns this white 1969 383 GTS. Black bucket seat interior with console, black vinyl top, black bumble bee stripe looks good against the W1 White. Optional disc brakes help slow down this 383 GTS.

The GTS is mostly original but needs a rebuild of the 340. The 340 is backed with the 4 speed trans and a 3.55 SG gear. The interior is black and white matching up with a black vinyl top and black stripe.

It's a Hamtramck, MI built GTS ) all original 340 GTS. This is a F8 Dark Green paint, with light green interior car. Bucket seat with console, head rests, fast ratio steering, manual disc brakes, and it has A/C. This is a very rare 4 speed with A/C equip GTS. The car has been in storage since 1978, and has 91,000 original miles! Scott will finish the restoration that was begun by Paul.

  • LS23P9B383***: GTS#468: A later build date allowed this GTS's orignal owner to order the 340 GTS painted in V2 Hemi Orange-which was a mid-year paint option. Sid from Maryland bought this GTS back in 1976. It has a 340 backed by the 4 speed and a set of 4.88 gears. Contrasting the V2 Hemi Orange is a black bumble bee, black vinyl top and a black bucket seat console interior. Sid is not afraid to use his GTS on the track either, as he has recorded a best of 13.00 @ 104mph.

  • LS23P9B385***: GTS#315: Nashville, TN is the home to Ken and his F8 340 GTS. Ken's GTS is a 4 gear 3.23 geared car that used to have a green interior but Ken changed it up to a white interior. Other options are power disc brakes, N85 console tachometer, and hood pins. I am waiting on confirmation if this car indeed has the J45 Hood Tie Down option!!

  • LS23H9B385***: GTS#162: This Orange w/black stripe and black interior still has the numbers matching 383 and 4sp! Tony says the car is straight and mostly rust free and while he didn't say where he lives he did say what he payed for it and it's one those deals you dream about folks.

  • LS23H9B387***: GTS#218: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE##-Shannon has the sold the vehicle to a resident of New York state who will undertake the restoration!!## Shannon O. from Iowa has had this 383 GTS cross his path a few times before he finally found it! Shannon's GTS was bought off the showroom floor in 1969, and then traded away in 1972. The next owner abused the GTS until 1981 and then put it away. Shannon had heard of this GTS ( another "local legend" car ) from a former shop teacher. After trying to track the car down for a few days, Shannon gave up. Fast Forward to 2002, Shannon bought a house and met a number of Mopar guys in the new neighborhood. They told him about a GTS sitting in a garage for a number of years. Guess what? The same car Shannon was tracking back then, was this very same car! A project car needing a full resto, Shannon has the history, experience, and desire to tackle the project! This is a T5 bronze number's matching 383 4 speed GTS. White interior with black top and stripe. Other options include the N85 tachometer, bucket seats, console, light package, power drum brakes, tinted glass, and the mighty MusicMaster AM radio!

  • LS23H9B387***: GTS#166: Wow. Jim R. from IL is also "Member#27 and #14! Can you tell he likes the GTS?!?!? Jim came across this GTS for the first time in 1984 while attending the Car Craft Street Machine Nationals, at that time it was owned by Burt H. from Beach Park, Illinois. and was the only other 383 4sp, GTS at the show (Jim was there with his Q5 Turquoise Metallic 383 4sp, GTS) and the two quickly became friends. This car is all about what the word Hot Rod means, a bare bones 383 GTS with 4 speed and 3.91 gears, F8 Dark green with black buckets and no console it's about as lite as a Big Block GTS can get, being a stripe delete car puts it in the sleeper category. Having not been molested over the years and well taken care of the engine compartment remains mostly original. I'm going to add one more picture of what I'm sure many would have seen back in the day had they tried their luck!!! **NOTE** This GTS is now owned by John W from MA!

  • LS23H9B394***: GTS#7: F3 Green w/ black interior, black vinyl top, and black bumble bee. 383 Auto and a 3.91 SureGrip. This GTS is owned by Bob K. from MA.

  • LS23H9B395***: GTS#329: Rick from B.C., Canada sends in this 383 GTS that he has owned since 1973. Rick picked up the car in Calgary and still has the original bill of sale. Speaking of original, Rick has kept his B5 Bright Blue Metallic 4 speed 4.10 geared "H" code all original with the number matching 383 and A833. He has bolted on a set of headers, intake and ignition, but has wisely retained all of the original parts!

  • LS27H9B395***: GTS#297: This is a one of 39 built 1969 383 4 speed convertible GTS! Owned by Robin in PA, this GTS was parked in the garage in the 1970's. Built on May 28, 1969, this was a Y09 Export Code car. Robin doesn't have any background on exactly WHERE his GTS had been exported too!! This GTS , as well as GTS#66 directly listed after this one, were about 30 cars apart on the line on 5-28-69 and BOTH were Y09 coded cars!! This is a B5 Bright Metallic Blue with a B3 interior and a black convertible top. This V88 Stripe Delete GTS is in current need of a total restoration.

  • LS23H9B395***: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE## Larry R. from GA is the current owner of #66-here is the original listing: GTS#66: This T5 Copper GTS w/white tail stripe is a Y09 export car!! It's now back in the states and owned by Bill from Iowa, It has a black bucket interior with console, tinted glass (G11 code, all glass) and power disc brakes. This is a 383 727 Torqueflite-non number matching car. This GTS was built on May 28, 1969. One day after the car listed above it! This one has just changed hands. This GTS is now owned by Don in Pennsylvania!

  • LS23P9B395***: GTS#123: A Black GTS with Black interior and White bumble bee stripe, this 340, 4 gear GTS also has power disc brakes and bucket seats. Build date is May 28, 1969, and is owned by Nick.

  • LS23P9B396***: GTS#299: Wayne from Wisconsin owns this tire smoking 4 speed 1969 GTS! Wayne picked his GTS up as part of a deal with a 2 dr. Dart "driver" and the junk yard crusher bound GTS-both for $1000!! Working on it since 1992, Wayne is almost done with his GTS. It was missing the original 340 and 4 speed and needed a new left rear quarter, but otherwise it was a solid foundation for Wayne to work with. Back to its original B5 Bright Metallic Blue with white vinyl top, Wayne changed the interior from the original black bucket seat w/ console to pearl white in order to complement the white top. The one odd-option on the car is the rear window defogger. The long gone 340 has been replaced with a "built" 360 topped by a 750 Demon carb running thru the 4 speed to the 3.55 gears.

  • LS23H9B396***: GTS#103: Owned by Justus S. from Ohio, this B7 383 GTS joins Justus's 1969 383 GTS ( #255*** )!! Here they are parked together at the 2003 Mopar Nationals! This is a 3.23 SG geared 4 speed GTS. White interior, console, AM radio, moulding package were all the options ordered on this H code. The most notable option ordered, or should we say NOT ordered, is the H25 Heater Delete. Look closely in the 383 engine bay and you can see the "delete" plate! This is what the delete plate looks like in the dash board!

  • LS23P9B397***: GTS#357: Tom D. from Calgary, Alberta is new to the Mopar hobby and he has fallen in love with his new toy. Tom was talked into picking up a 1969 340 GTS, and he is happy he listened to the advice. Welcome to the DARK SIDE Tom!! This B5 Bright Blue Metallic GTS will be sporting a black paint job and retain the white interior when Tom is done with the restoration. The 340 is backed with the 727 and a 3.23 gear. We're glad you joined the "Dodge Boys" with your new GTS!

  • LS23H9B398***: GTS#337: Serge W. from California owns this sinister black on black 383 GTS. The May 29, 1969 built stripe delete car sports a 727 with a 3.91 SG gear. An original "Stealth Fighter"!! Serge's GTS is all original with the paperwork to back it up. Serge is the second owner of this low optioned GTS. All three moulding packages, AM radio, buckets w/ console shifted 727, woodgrain wheel, and tinted windows all around were all the items checked off on the order form.

  • LS23P9B398***: GTS#124: Jeff P. from Indiana owns this former B3 340GTS. Jeff has modified it with a 440 with dual quads, Edelbrock aluminum heads, S/S Hemi scoop and 3" exhaust.

  • LS23H9B401***: GTS#69: This black w/black vinyl top, black interior, console 4 sp, GTS is a stripe delete car. The car has spent most of it's time in NY where the owner first came across it in 1982 and was offered the car in trade for a 57 Ford, needing cash and not another car at the time the deal wasn't made. The GTS surfaced again in the late 80's but the asking price was to high, so no deal was made at this time either. By 1992 the car belonged to a friend of the present owner who wanted to sell and Mike finally came to own the GTS, at this time the car was repainted and had new seat covers installed. The GTS is powered by a 440 believed to have been installed by Grand Spaulding Dodge and made 406 HP on the chassis dyno last year.

  • LS23P9B403***: GTS#529: Dan L. from Iowa already has a GTS in the Registry:GTS#65. He just found this 1969 340 4 speed project car GTS. Originally F8 Dark Green with a black vinyl top and black bucket seat interior. No console with this GTS and it is V88 Stripe Delete. Good luck with the project Dan!!

  • LS23P9B410***: GTS#111: Oregon is the home to Dan L. and his 340 GTS. This is a 340 4 speed, disc brake and stripe delete GTS that was originally T5 Bronze with a black interior. Dan is almost finished with the restoration with a "twist". It is now painted "Vitamin C" orange!

  • LS23H9B411***: GTS#45: A 383 4 speed GTS owned by Dan and Gary from Montreal. It is a white hardtop with black bucket interior. The build date was 6-10-69.

  • LS27H9B415***: GTS#231: Bill V. from CT owns this "Celebrity" GTS 383 Convertible!!! T5 Bronze with white convertible top, interior, and bumble bee. "Recall" rims to boot!! While DeWayne's GTS listed above represents the first of the 1969 model year, Bill's was built near the end of 1969 production. Bill finished restoration of this 1 of 34 made 4 speed convertible in the spring of 1999. Since then, it has been featured in the August 2000 edition of Mopar Action, pages 44-45 in the Dodge Dart and Plymouth Duster book by Steve Statham, and the October 2000 issue of High Performance Mopar!!

  • LS27H9B415***: GTS#346: Owned by Bill S. from AZ. This is a B5 Bright Blue 383 GTS. White convertible top with a white bench seat interior with the 4 speed stick.

  • LS23H9B415***: GTS#353: A "Mod Top" GTS joins the ranks here on the GTS Registry! Joe N. from Missouri picked up this project car. A 1969 383 GTS with a 727, black interior, bucket seats, console, and 3 speed wipers and not much else! The really neat thing about this late (June 12, 1969) build GTS is that it is a F6 Rallye Green Mod Top car with a black bumble bee. Currently sporting what appears to be something close to a B3 Light Blue paint job, you can still see vestiges of the original F6 on the firewall. Joe is looking for ANY leads to some green and blue floral Mod Top material!!

  • LS23P9B415***: GTS#494: Now residing in Ontario, Canada, Ian's 340 GTS started out in Ohio before moving to Canada. Ian is the 6th owner since the GTS came to Ontario. None of the previous 5 owners DROVE the GTS. It just kept changing hands!! Ian's GTS is ALL original but the light green bucket seat interior needs replacing. The outside of the GTS is F5 Medium Green with dark green vinyl top and a white bumble bee stripe. The 340 is backed by a 4 speed and 3.23 SG gear. Ian's GTS was built on June 12, 1969 and its options include: fendertop signals, console, tinted windshield, AM radio, and drip and rocker mouldings.

  • LS23P9415***: GTS#48: F6 Bright Green Metallic w/Pearl White interior. This 340, column shift automatic GTS was built 6-12-69 and is owned by Ray from Olive Branch, MS. The car has been completely restored to stock, and Ray says this is a BARE BONES DART!

  • LS23H9B415***: GTS#440: Dave H. from MN just picked up this 1969 383 4 speed GTS. Dave has owned a number of 340 GTS's and has owned a 440 M code GTS. Dave's new toy was built on Thursday June 12, 1969 towards the end of the '69 model year. This is a fairly well optioned GTS. Besides the all-important 383 4 speed combo, Dave's GTS was painted F8 Dark Green with a black bucket seat, console shifted interior, black vinyl top, and it is a V88 "stripe delete" car. Tinted windshield, power disc brakes, AM-FM radio, rocker and drip rail mouldings, deluxe seat belt package, and console tachometer. Dave will be doing a full resto on his "H" code GTS but with a body color change as this would be the third or fourth GTS (Dave has lost count) he has owned that was F8 Dark Green!!

  • LS23P9B416***: GTS#323: Chuck L. from MN is the second owner of this 340 4 speed GTS. Chuck bought the car in 1972 for the sum of $1500. His GTS has been underestimated ever since. His insurance company declared it a non-high-performance car becasue it was under 350 CI! (HA!) All the local big block boys would underestimate Chuck's "little" 340 as well. He would be pulling away before they figured out what hit them!! This is a former Y4 Gold stripe delete 4 speed car. It is now R4 red with a black bumble bee accenting the original black interior. A 727 has replaced the orginal 4 speed, but it is the number matching 340 under the hood. Chuck's best time on slicks is a 13.72 @ 101mph.

  • LS23P9B418***: GTS#583: John M. from South Carolina has owned this 1969 GTS since 2000. It was bought along with a T/A Challenger rolling chassis by John's father. They drove and maintained the GTS while restoring the T/A. After returning from a tour in Afghanistan in 2009 (THANKS for your service John!) John bought the GTS from Dad. Currently it has a 418 stoker in front of the 4 speed. The GTS sports a Y2 yellow paint job along with black interior and black bumble bee stripe yet John thinks it was originally B5 blue which they discovered some B5 while doing body work. John plans on improving his GTS!

  • LS23P9B425***: GTS#426: Quite the different color combo going on with Guy's 340 GTS. The B5 paint and black interior go hand-in-hand. It's gets interesting with the addition of the V8R RED bumble bee stripe! Guy is from Texas and his GTS is equipped with the 340 and 727 with a 3.55 gear.

  • LS23H9B427***: GTS#157: Hailing from WI, this 383 GTS has a mild "cam" and electronic ignition upgrade.

  • LS23H9B433***: GTS#446: Pretty late build date for this 383 GTS now owned by Dave H. from MN. After owning four F8 Dark Green cars, Dave has landed a B5 Bright Blue GTS. Built on June 26, 1969, this is a 4 speed 383 powered GTS. B5 with white interior and black V1X vinyl top. This is a V88 stripe delete car. Dave bought this GTS from the original owner who has lived in the Chicago area and has piled up 169,000 (!!!!) miles on this GTS. It is in need of a TOTAL restoration, but the good news is that it is 100% complete (except for an aftermarket shifter knob). Other options included a AM/FM radio, tinted glass, AO1 Light Group, and body and drip rail mouldings. Dave completed the restoration in 2010 and the GTS has since been sold.

  • LS27P9B440***: GTS#374: Vern K. in New Mexico is the third registered owner of this 340 GTS convertible. Bought by the original owner for $4383.00 from Boedeker-Verner Motors in Dallas, TX, the GTS moved on to Vern's brother who was owner #2. In 1982 Vern bought the car from his brother. The GTS is F8 Dark Green with a white soft top (original top was black) and white interior. The 340/727 has a 3.23 gear and that gets the GTS moving! Other options include the convertible top, remote left mirror, power front disc brakes, A/C, bucket seat console interior, tinted windshield, bumperettes, and AM/FM radio.

  • LS27H9B441***: GTS#449: A 1969 383/727 convertible GTS is pretty rare. Only 39 were built for that year. How rare would one be knowing this one is in Switzerland????? Norbert found this 1969 GTS in a barn in Sweden and he brought the car to his home in Switzerland and has since put 2000 KM on the car. 383 with a bucket seat console shifted 727 power this Euro GTS. Red with black top, black interior, and black bumble bee stripe mark this GTS. Norbert reports that his GTS was brought over to Sweden around 1999 and was restored at that time. This was a great find by Norbert!

  • LS27P9B441*49: GTS#107: The second of the "3 Gold GTSs" that can be read about below the Registry entries. This one is the 340 automatic Y4 Gold convertible also owned by Ken W. A 1 of 214 car built on July 7, 1969, this GTS also has a black bucket seat/console interior, 3 speed wipers, fender top signals, Am radio, power drum brakes, and body moldings. This vehicle should have a black bumble bee V8X stripe. Now check out the very next Registry entry....

  • LS27H9B441*51: GTS#108: Note how this and the previous entry display the last 2 numbers of the VIN. This is to demonstrate the weird coincidental ownership of these two GTSs. Ken W. from WI owns both of these almost identical gold GTSs ( as well as a third gold GTS #220*** ) that comprise his triumvirate of GOLD, CONVERTIBLE Mopar A-bodies!!!!!! Read about them just below the Registry entries! This one is a 1 of 37 built also on July 7, 1969 two cars AFTER Ken's 340 automatic above!!!!! Also Y4 Gold with a black top and black bucket seat interior, fender top signals, 3 speed wiper, remote LH mirror, AM radio and body sill moldongs. This 383 GTS should also be sporting the V8X black bumble bee stripe. Ken left the "bumble bees" off these two GTSs so now all three of his gold converts match!

  • LS23H9B450***: GTS#216: Kim from MI is the 4th owner of this 383 GTS. Right after the third owner-Kim's dad!. Rather convoluted history with this one- so pay attention! The original owner bought the car in Grand Rapids, MI. He turned it into a custom painted show car, and it still retains that paint job today! The custom GTS was traded in at a Chevy dealer for a van!!!! The second owner bought it and then promptly lost it via repossession!!! Kim's dad bought the car in the mid 70's from GMAC!! Originally this GTS was black with white top and red bumble bee. Black interior with bucket seats surrounds the 4 speed shifter. Other options included the "mag style" hub caps and a rear window defroster!

  • LS23H9B450***: GTS#334: Don from South Dakota picked up his 383 GTS back in the mid-1970's with his brother for the sum of $1400!! The B3 Light Blue 383/727 GTS has only 79,000 original miles on the odometer. Don bought out his brother's share and plans on restoring the GTS back to "day one" status with a blue interior, black vinyl top, and black bumble bee stripe!

  • LS23P9B450***: GTS#181: Owned by Jayson T. this is B5 blue with white stripe GTS, and is powered by a 340 and automatic. While Jayson didn't send in a lot information on this car, I'll take a guess and say it's was built 714. It's the only small block in this group of cars, it was built 57 cars before the "second" from last car on this page.

  • LS23H9B450***: GTS#6: Owned by Dave A. (aka GTS Dave) from TX, this 383 4 speed is F8 Dark green w/ light green interior, white vinyl top, and white bumble bee. Currently undergoing a FULL restoration. Built on July 14, 1969! 8 cars separated Dave's GTS with GTS#381!!

  • LS23P9B450***: GTS#381: Very late build GTS with a build date of July 14, 1969. Randy from Florida has this restored 1969 GTS. It has the number matching 340 and 727. Painted F3 Light Green Metallic with a black vinyl top and black bumble bee.

  • LS23P9B450***: GTS#296: *PDR*: Sam from West Virginia is a Ford guy who picked up his first Mopar. A 1969 GTS with the 340 and 727 Torqueflite!! B5 Bright Metallic Blue with a former blue interior now done in white! One of the more rare options on the car is the rear window defogger! If this car turns out as nice as Sam's 1965 289 Falcon and his 1970 351 Mach 1 then it will be another fine looking car in Sam's garage!! This GTS came down the line 31 cars after GTS Dave's (GTS#6 in the listing above) on July 14, 1969.

  • LS23P9B450***: GTS#503: Bill G. in CT has a fairly nice optioned 1969 GTS in his care. His GTS has a 340/727/3.23SG drivetrain combo. Built on Monday, 7-14-1968 the GTS is painted Y2 Sunfire Yellow with a black vinyl top, black bumble bee, and black bucket seat/console interior. Options included a LH remote mirror, 3 speed wipers, rear defogger, undercoating and hood insulation kit, fender top signals, bumperettes, wheel lip mouldings,b AM radio, and power steering turned with the woodgrain steering wheel.

  • LS23H9B450***: GTS#19: Also owned by Ray from VA, this is a Y4 Gold with gold interior 4 speed GTS. It, too, is a 7-14-69 build date. 19 cars before the last in our Registry! It has a black vinyl top and black bumble bee. Disc brakes, console tachometer, light package, and fender top signals.

  • LS23H9B450***: GTS#70: This Y4 Gold with gold interior, white vinyl top and white bumble bee stripe, 383, 4sp, GTS was sold new from Alan Dodge Inc. on 8-20-69. Like the one below it, it to is sales bank car. Scotty bought the car in 1985 and parked it in 1987, This GTS was built on July 14, 1969 and just 18 cars before the one below it and the next car built after the one above it!!! As Scotty restores the car, you can look for updates on this one.

  • LS23H9B450***: GTS#2: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE##-Mike H. from NC now owns this 383 GTS. B7 Medium Blue hardtop owned by Ed M. from Tennessee. 383 Four Barrel, Torqueflite727. B3 light blue interior. This car has 15 options and is a sales bank car! Built on July 14, 1969 in Hamtramck, MI. this is the third from last Big Block GTS known according to Galen Govier.

  • LS23P9B451***: GTS#265: Another Swedish Export! This one is owned by Lars C. and is a modified 340 GTS and a 518 O.D. transmission. Formerly white with a black interior, it is now painted black. Unlike Krister's GTS (GTS Member 264) that was built for "export", this GTS made it to Sweden in 1975!! Also, this is currently the second from last built 1969 GTS that we have on record. The last GTS was the car directly behind this one on the line. One VIN number apart!!

  • LS23P9B451***: GTS#175: Greg K. From Tampa Bay, FL owns this VERY late made 340 GTS. It has been changed from it's original "build". It has the 340 with 727 Torqueflite and 3.91 8 3/4 SG gear. It was F8 Dark Green with a green vinyl top but is now showing itself off in code999 "Sassy Grass Green" with a black vinyl top. The original white bucket seat interior is now black. Currently it has a 493 stroker under the hood. About the only thing Greg left untouched was the N85 console mounted tachometer! Is THIS the "Last GTS Built"????????


    Toluca, Mexico Built:


    All Dodges were built at the AutoMex plant in Toluca, Mexico assembly plant from 1960-1972. The GTS was also built there using body panels imported from the USA but finsihed rather differently than the USA/Canadian versions of the 1968 and 1969 GTS. Here is a brief description from the AutoHobby Digest website that can be found here:History of the Mexican GTS!

    "1968 was an exciting year for the Dart in Mexico. In addition to offering a two door Dart 270 and a four door Dart 270, Chrysler was now offering a Dart GTS. Along with the Barracuda, the GTS was fitted with all available high performance components: disc brakes, a four speed transmission (or an optional automatic), sway bars, and D-70x14 tires fitted to 14x5.5" rims. Initially in 1968, the engine was the corporate 230hp 318cid V8. For 1969, Chrysler introduced a 270hp 318 V8 and this became the standard engine for the GTS. It featured a 4bbl carb, 9.5:1 compression, larger valves and a heavy duty crank.

    GTS's were available with both bench seats and buckets, in addition to being outfitted with a Barracuda instrument cluster and dash (did you look at the photo above this section??). Unlike GTS's in the US, the GTS of Mexico would continue on for the 1970 model year."

    The cars did not have a VIN as we know it here in the USA. They were not assigned dash board VIN plates until 1980! The VIN is very different from the other VINs contained in the GTS Registry-as you will see with our first listing below! The cars were identified with a metal door jamb decal displaying the serial number, engine number, and registry number. Engines were assembled in Mexico and were "numbers matching" to the car. "Hecho en Mexcio" was stamped on the intake manifold but no serial number.
    After assembly at the Toluca plant, the cars were driven by independent contractors from the plant to the dealerships!!! Odometers were disconnected!! Speaking of odometers, the speedometer and odometer were in metric, and with the use of the Barracuda Rallye cluster, the markings went up to 240 kph (160mph)!!


  • T9-1032**: GTS#321: Raul from Mexico City, Mexico is the first entrant into the GTS Registry with a Mexican VIN GTS!! Raul's 318 4 speed GTS was orignally F3 Light green with a black vinyl top and black bench seat interior. K-H disc brakes were an option on this car, but the GTS has been converted to large bolt pattern on all four corners. Raul is NOT a fan of green so his plans for resurrecting his GTS includes a Hemi Orange paint job with a black bumble bee and retaining the factory top and interior. Raul is the fifth (5th) owner of this November 3, 1968 built 318 GTS.

    Breaking the "M" Code!

    What's the big secret about the "M" code GTSport??? More questions seem to exist than answers surrounding this Dodge.

    The GTS Registry will try to sort out the story behind the car. We will focus on the GTS "M" code for the most OBVIOUS reason here on the GTS Registry. It IS a GTS after all!! Hopefully after reading this section, we can provide some insight into the "M" code cars. Hopefully we can reverse the trend and provide more answers than questions!!

    What is the "M" code: Myth? Rarity? Legend? Confusion? All four can describe the 1969 Dodge GTSport equipped with the optional 440 4bbl. engine. 1969 was the only year that Mopar officially offered the 440 in the both the GTS and the 'Cuda440.

    These are not mythical cars built by the skunk works at Chrysler. They DID exist. Dodge produced 640 of the GTS variant, and Plymouth produced 340 of the 440'Cuda version. That makes them pretty rare by any standard. Legend has it that Mr. Norm's Grand-Spaulding Dodge had handbuilt the first couple of 1969 "M" codes. Legend has it that Hurst-Campbell built ALL the 1969 "M" code cars. "Legend" is wrong, and has lent confusion to the story behind the "M". But it is best to start at the beginning in 1967 to help clear up the events leading to 1969!

    Yes, it is a documented fact that Mr. Norm dropped a 383 between the fenders of a 1967 Dart GT, drove it to Highland Park, MI, and showed it to the Chrysler engineering staff. Chrysler "saw the light" and started dropping 383 engines into the Dart GT and calling it the GTS. THAT is how we got the first "big block" in to a A-body Mopar. Mr. Norm was very pivotal in this development.

    1968 saw the 383 offered as an option, along with the new 340, in the GTSport. But Mr. Norm wanted to push the performance envelope again. This time he wanted to try a 440 in place of the 383. Approximately 50 cars were built by Dodge. These were the first "M" codes. 1968 "M" codes! HOWEVER, it is not that simple. The 50 were all ordered by Grand-Spaulding. They were built minus engine, and shipped to Hurst-Campbell for fitment of the 440. Then they were shipped to Mr. Norm and these became the GSS. At this point, Mr. Norm would also add anything from his performance catalog to your brand new Dodge, as long as you were paying the price! It was thought that Grand-Spaulding dropped in the 440 into all 50 GSS cars. Not a logistical possibility. At that time, Grand-Spaulding was operating out of a converted gas station with rented buildings and parking lots in the surrounding area to house his bustling new car business. Don't forget his "Dyno Tuning" tune up business was flourishing at that time as well!! Not much room to dedicate to 50 cars needing engine transplants and finishing. Grand Spaulding Dodge did indeed order 20 factory built 440 GTS's from the CO1 batch for his dealership. This may be another reason for the belief that "all" 440 M codes rolled thru Grand Spaulding Dodge.

    With that heritage, we can see why the story behind the "factory" 1969 cars becomes confused with the facts of the 1967-1968 cars.

    The 1969 GTSports with the 440 came off the factory assembly line in Hamtramck, Michigan as sort of a "mid-year introduction". Sounds simple, right? There were special things that transpired in the creation with these cars. The paperwork and invoices for the earlier cars showed a "H" in the vehicles VIN. Also, the fender tag had "E63". Both the "H" and "E63" signified a 383! Ah, more confusion. But interesting enough, the vehicles regular VIN tag indicated the "M" instead of the invoice's "H". Also, the fender tag (and invoice) indicated "Y39" which stands for "Special Order" and indicates the 440-4 for the A-body. The "Y39" also superceded the "E63" on the fender tag. To add further to the confusion, the "Y39" was replaced with �A13� for the March 2 built batch. See invoice and corresponding fender tag below.

    Even the cosmetic difference included the "383" being superceded by a "440"! According to YearOne, the cars were delivered with "440 Four Barrel" decals in the glove compartment to be placed OVER the factory "383 Four Barrel" call-out!! Also, they were ALL equipped with a console shifted TorqueFlite727 (save the room under the hood that would be needed for the four speed linkage), and power brakes and A/C were also not available.

    Now, as for the production methods, they were pretty standard for the day, but still had some special handling involved. As these were A-bodies, the "line" was probably not equipped to install 440 engines into the cars, as these were not "standard" (or normal?) on the A-body line. This lead to the cars being produced in "batches". They started with a Order Sequence Number of 900900 for the GTS and ended with 902_ _ _. The 440 'Cudas had Sequence Numbers starting at 920_ _ _. However, even though all the Sequence Numbers were in numerical order, the VIN was in order with overall Dodge production for the Hamtramck plant. Seven (7) batches of GTSs were built, with three (3) batches for the 440 'Cuda. See chart for Scheduled Production Dates.

    It was first thought that ALL of these cars came off the line like the 1968 GSS cars-minus engine and trans. Then they were shipped to Hurst-Campbell for the 440. This evidently did NOT happen! In Hurst production "biographies", they list all sorts of the vehicles that were modified/finished by Hurst. From the 1968 Hemi S/S Darts and Barracudas, to the S/C Rambler390, the Hurst/Olds, and even a Hurst Jeepster!! They even modified a run of 1500 Belvederes for taxi cab use in New York city by dropping the floor pan a 1 1/2"!. But there is NO MENTION of the 1969 440 GTS/'Cuda in this book at all.

    The 440 GTS was not distinguished externally from the other GTSs of that year, except by the small "440 Four Barrel" engine call-out for the hood bulge. It was thought that the "M" codes were all pulled off the main line to a secondary line for finishing. Similar to what the A12 1969 1/2 440-6pk cars with lift off hoods might have had at the Lynch Road plant. But the A12 cars HAD special engines (the GTS 440 was just a regular 440) with magnafluxed and shot-peened parts and practically hand built engines topped off with the 3 Holley carbs. Not to mention the fitting of the fiberglass lift-off hoods. The GTS and 'Cuda looked like every other GTS and 'Cuda on the road. Why would Chrysler invest that time and money into that process??? This would not make sense from a business stand point. Not glamorous, not extraordinary, but sure held some hot surprises for the other musclecars of that era!!!

    So there is no myth surrounding the 1969 "M" code GTS. They were built on the regular line. No magical elves hammering away at them in the bowels of Chrysler Engineering. Rare?? You bet. Remember, only 640 were built. We have barely over 20 listed in the GTS Registry. Legendary?? Yes. How else would you describe a 375hp bolted into a 3400lb package??? Heh, heh, heh.....can you say "straight-line performance"?? You probably still hear stories about a big block GTS from "back in the day". Confusion?? Hopefully this clears away some of the fog of time from the history of the 1969 "M" code cars! We hope this brief description helps answer some of the long-standing questions involving the production of the 1969 "M" code GTS.




    I would like to THANK the following people for their input in putting together the facts about the "M" code GTS cars. Brian and Paul Schaefer (GTS#160), and Ralph and Susan Perry (GTS#274) for sharing their documents, invoices, and magazine articles (MoparMuscle-1992). Darryl Dayton for his historical references and for being in the right place at the right time- i.e. Chicago area new car sales for Dodge. Kevin Moore, Parts Manager for Monicatti Chrysler-Jeep for defining the obvious and answering questions. Conley Wright for his list of "M" codes that he has accumulated over the past few years. Conley even sent some Barracuda VIN's!!

    I will list the registered "M" code GTS below in a special section to just highlight that model, and to allow quick reference for these cars. They will still be listed in their proper order in the 1969 GTS Registry above to keep them in sequence with the regular VIN numerical order. Also, in-between the full "M" codes from the GTS Registry, you will see some VINs (without a GTS Member#) with no more info than possibly the color and Vehicle Order Number (VON). These were provided by Conley Wright and I have incorporated his list the GTS Registry's "M" code list. I will also show the 440 'Cuda VINs (following the 440 GTS list) that Conley forwared to the GTS Registry

    If you own a 440 GTS that is Registered with the GTS Registry, and can share any info, please send it to me at gtsreg@yahoo.com. I tried to contact a number of the current registered "M" code owners, but almost all came back with invalid email addresses. You can also send any insights to help further explain the "M" code process. I would like to hear from you.

    We're all in this together, so it is in the best interest of the GTS owners that we can share this information!!!

    "M" Code 440 GTS


    These are all the "M" code 440 GTS cars registered with the GTS Registry. They are also listed in their original production order in the complete 1969 GTS Registry above!

  • LS23M9B2241**: GTS#160: This is the FIRST "M" CODE PRODUCED!!! Vehicle Order Number (VON) is 900900!!!! WOW! This is as the "M" GTS looks now! Originally equipped as a B5 Bright Blue Metallic and a V1X black vinyl top and V8X black bumble bee stripe. About the only option on it was the remote control mirror! This 440 was built for racing, and here's a picture of it circa 1978 running 11.2's at 118mph! This was purchased at Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge and retains the number matching 440!

  • LS23M9B232***: GTS#471: Doug E. from Ohio is the 4th owner of this 1969 440 GTS. He bought the car in 1974 and it only has 38,000 miles on the clock. Built on 12-01-68 and bought at Grand-Spaulding Dodge in Chicago, IL this GTS has the optional 3.91 SG behind the 440/727. It is painted B5 Bright Blue with a black interior and white bumble bee stripe. Doug is in the process of restoring his "M" Code.

  • LS23M9B232***: GTS#506: Mike from Nebraska sends in three GTS's that he owns including this 440 GTS. GTS#506 is a 440 GTS painted T5 Copper Metallic with a black vinyl top and black bumble bee. The 440/727 is backed by a 3.91 gear. This 440 GTS is currently undergoing a rotisserie restoration.

  • LS23M9B2328**: GTS#34: A very early "M" code GTS owned by Rich. This is a B5 Bright Blue with white vinyl top and white bucket seat interior. A 42,200 original mile car, it has a .030 over 440 driving 3.91 gears. This 440 GTS spent most of its time on the drag strip before Rich found it.

  • LS23M9B2328**: VON 900014 R6 Red

  • LS23M9B2328**: GTS#274: Ralph and Susan from Indiana own another "M" code that filtered thru the old Grand Spaulding Dodge dealership in Chicago, Illinois. Originally a F5 Medium green with green bucket seat interior and white bumble bee car, they will be changing colors. Unable to accept F5, they will instead paint the "M" with Q5 Turquoise and give it a white interior!! This "M" was ordered with the deluxe "mag style" wheel covers, AM radio, head rests, remote left side mirror, and a 3.91 geared SureGrip 8 3/4 rear end!!The car had been cut up in the past. As Ralph and Susan had to replace the inner fender wells to fix up where the previous owner had done some cutting for fenderwell headers!!

  • LS23M9B2328**: VON 900931

  • LS23M9B2328**: GTS#200: Brian from PA has chased this "M" code for 20 years before finally talking the former owner into selling it. This "M" is a black on black 3.23 geared example of the GTS!! Brian also owns a 1968 "H" code 383 GTS and is also Member #201!

  • LS23M9B2389**: GTS#345: Owned by Bill S. from AZ. T5 Copper with white top and white interior.

  • LS23M9B2455**: GTS#344: Owned by Bill S. from AZ. VON 900952 C01 build date. B5 Bright Blue Metallic with white top and interior.

  • LS23M9B2455**:

  • LS23M9B2455**: GTS#510: Patrick Dean (who so gratiously sent me his old GTS Registry paper work) tells me of his former 1969 M-code 440 GTS that he sold in 1989! I have decided to enter this GTS into the GTS Registry because it is a KNOWN GTS and because Patrick led the way for other GTS owners to register their cars waaaay before the internet! Patrick's GTS was sold new in Utah at Hinckley Dodge. Pat was the eighth owner when he bought it in 1988. The GTS was on its fourth engine (2-383's and 2-440's) and was painted silver. The owner before Patrick painted it back to its original T5 Copper Metallic and had a 440 back under the hood. Other options included a black bucket seat/console interior, black vinyl top and black bumble bee stripe. The 440 had the only trans available behind it (727) and a set of 3.91 SG gears. It came with dog dish hub caps, AM radio, rocker and drip rail mouldings, bumperettes, and is the ONLY documented M-code to come with front disc brakes! Patrick sold the GTS to a fellow in Massachusetts in 1989. Where is this 440 M-code now?????

  • LS23M9B2455**:

  • LS23M9B2468**: GTS#31: A "M" code 440 GTS. Owned by Don from MI, this "M" was built on Dec.1, 1968. It is a "bare bones" B7 Blue car. A "bruiser" for the streets with its B7 flanks accented with black vinyl top, black interior, and black bumble bee! This is a restored 35,000 original mile GTS.

  • LS23M9B2483**: GTS#8:"M" code 440 auto GTS owned by Mike from OH. It is in need of a full restoration. F8 Green w/ black interior and black vinyl top. It is a "stripe delete" GTS and was equipped with a 3.91 SureGrip.

  • LS23M9B2660**: GTS#417: Kurt is the new owner of this 440 "M" code GTS. Originally purchased at Saddleback Dodge in California, the original owner sold the GTS in 1974. Kurt has only been able to trace the car's roots back to the second owner in 1974. Kurt is having a full rotisserie restoration performed on the GTS. It is Y2 yellow with black interior and black bumble bee stripe. Photos will follow when the resto is complete. And that resto is complete as of Spring 2010. Kurt premiered his "M" code at Las Vegas "Mopars on the Strip" and walked away with a number of awards, and plenty of praise for his completed GTS. The 440 under the hood looks as good as the rest of the GTS.

  • LS23M9B2660**: GTS#195: Don B. from California is the original owner of this "M". He bought it new in March of 1969 at Saddleback Dodge in Tustin, CA, and has had it titled, registered, and insured every year since then!! Even though always garage kept, Don used his 440 GTS as a bracket racer. This is still a numbers matching engine and trans car. B7 Dark Blue with V8W white bumble bee and B3 Light Blue interior. He still has all the original equipment taken off the car for racing purposes. That will make it an easy resto when he decides the time is right! The odometer reads 62,000 original miles!!

  • LS23M9B2660**: GTS#42: *PDR*: Originally a F5 Medium Green with F3 Light Green "M" code GTS, it is now painted Hemi Orange with a black bumble bee. Owned by Tim B. from OR, this is equipped with the 727 Torqueflite and a 3.55 ( orig. a 3.91 ) gear. Built on Jan. 14, 1969, it is now a street driven, non-number matching, GTS waiting for a full resto from Tim. He has the original exhaust manifolds, and luckily, the fenderwells had never been cut in the past!

  • LS23M9B266***: GTS#286: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE##: Richard G. from Ohio now owns this 'M" code. The 440 GTS is now complete!! Here is the original listing: *PDR*: This "M" code 440 GTS was used by Car Craft magazine as a test car in 1969. It was purchased new at Saddleback Dodge in May, 1969. The car was modified and then sold by the magazine. Chuck V. from California purchased this GTS in 1996 with only 7000 miles showing on the odometer. This low mileage was accumulated the hard way-a 1/4 mile at a time! The car's sheetmetal had been cut up/modified for racing. Chuck is now doing a rotisserie resto on this "M" and returning it to its former self. F8 Dark Green paint with green interior! The number matching 440 is under the hood!! We'll keep you updated on the progress.

  • LS23M9B2823**: GTS#53: Recently purchased by John W. of MA. This is a B7 with B3 interior 440 "M" GTS. This GTS was turned into a race car back in the 70's with approx. 20-30,000 miles on the clock. It has been tubbed, caged, and a narrowed Dana60 installed on the ladder bar suspension. **NOTE** This GTS is now owned by Jim R. from IL!

  • LS23M9B2823**: GTS#207: Mitch from Ohio is the third owner of this 440 "M" code GTS. Thought to be originally purchased from Miami Valley Dodge in Dayton, OH, this GTS changed hands the first time not long after it was originally sold-1970. The second owner drove the GTS ~HARD~ as it lived its life as a street racer until 1978 when it was parked until Mitch rescued it in 1989. The car had lost its original 440, as well as it was sporting a number of the era's modifications: headers, hood scoop, and traction bars! Mitch did a resto of it in the early 1990's and he will perform an all out resto in the near future. This is a F8 Dark Green with white bumble bee and no vinyl top GTS. F3 Light Green interior options include a wood grain wheel, AM radio, and N85 console tachometer. This "M" code's fender tag shows a "Build Date" of January 31, 1969. Now, we just need to convince Mitch to get rid of the Rallye Rims!!!

  • LS23M9B282***: GTS#482: What a nice way to start off the 2011 season with a 440 "M" code entry! Jim D. from CA bought this 1969 440 GTS from the original owner in 1974. From 1974 to 1982 the GTS lived a life as a 10 second bracket racer. The B5 Bright Blue GTS had a tunnel ram intake, 727 trans and a 4.88 narrowed Dana 60 out back. It sat in Jim's garage until 1994 when Jim decided to detune the GTS and put it back on the street. Even in its detuneed state, the car was a handful on the street, so back in the garage it went. It shows 10,000 miles on the odometer.

  • LS23M9B2927**: GTS#270: Ray from MN owns this red "M" code. Build Order #901111 sent this red with white interior and white bumble bee down the assembly line. Fender tag shows the E63 code for the 383, but we know they dropped in the 440 at the Hamtramck assembly plant!!. According to Ray, an old issue of MoparMuscle indicates this GTS came out with no engine and was shipped to Hurst for the 440 conversion. This we learned is not what happened!! Ray's "M" still has the orignal spare in the trunk!!

  • LS23M9B295***: GTS#577: Another 440 "M" code joins the GTS Registry. Scott S. in Ohio has owned this 1969 440 GTS since 1982 and had restored it to factory fresh condition with the GTS only showing 16,000 on the odometer. Scott found the GTS which had been parked since 1971 as another worn out 440 race car with a rust free body and 7800 miles on the clock. Originally built on Feb 14, 1969, the GTS was painted B5 with a B5 interior and black bumble bee and black vinyl top.

  • LS23M9B295***: GTS#57: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE 2##: Another owner for this "M" code. Al C. from Ontario, Canada is the most recent owner of GTS#57. Al commends Gary H. for the work and upkeep done on this 440 GTS. **Ownership UPDATE #1** Kevin H. from the Carolinas now owns the former Gary H. NOS restored, tweeked 440 "M" code GTS!!! After a Valentine's Day build date of 2-14-69, this GTS was sold new at Northland Dodge in Columbus, OH. Gary was fortunate in retaining all the original paperwork for this E1 White, black bumblebee with F4 light green interior, console shifted 727 to the 3.55 SG rear. This GTS has received a full rotiserrie resto. The only deviation from stock are the TTi ceramic coated headers and exhaust. Fear not, Kevin now has the original exhaust manifolds for his 440 Magnum.

  • LS23M9B295***: GTS#186: Ron C. from AZ has known this car since 1978, and has been actively pursuing it for 6 years. Ron was finally successful in obtaining this "M" code GTS. Ron has owned two previous "M" code cars when he lived in Ohio. This "M" was bought at Northland Dodge ( check listing above-Northland sold two "M" codes! ) and built in February of 1969. The car was restored once in 1991, but needs a good freshening up. This is a white with black interior radio delete GTS. Also, this is a number matching car! ##UPDATE## Ron has now finished the 3 1/2 year second restoration on his white "M" code. The 440 under the hood sports some minor deviations from stock, and the paint and body looks outstanding. Congrats go out to Ron for saving another GTS.

  • LS23M9B295***: GTS#382: Another "M" code 440 GTS finds the GTS Registry. George from Kentuckey owns this T5 Bronze example of the 440GTS. This GTS has a white interior and white bumble bee stripe. George had also owned another "M" code at the same time. He is in the process of restoring this 80,000 original mile car. The number matching 440 and 727 had been parted out before George bought the GTS. He has since located a 440'Cuda engine and trans to replace the missing OE pieces. George does have the proper radiator and exhaust manifolds specific to the 1969 "M" code. George has even located a set of "recall rims" and his 440 GTS will be riding on those soon.

  • LS23M9B3006**: GTS#527: Bill in Ohio owns this 1969 "M" code 440 GTS. This GTS has spent its life on the drag strip since 1971. Bill bought the car in 1996 for only $900!! Originally this GTS was B5 Bright Blue with a black bucket seat interior and white bumble bee stripe. Of course, the 727 backed up the 440 under the hood.

  • LS23M9B3006**: GTS#159: This is a B5 blue w/black interior, and white stripe "M" code GTS, and it's only options are a console and AM radio. The car is apart at this time waiting on a restoration, it's also thought to be a Mr. Norm's car but the owner is still waiting for confirmation?

  • LS23M9B3006**: GTS#406: ##Dean Registry##: "M" code owned by Ray B. is a B5 with black interior 440 GTS. Ray is the 4th owner and has owned this "M" since 2000. This GTS was sold new at Northland Dodge, traded in 1974 to owner #2, then sold to owner #3 in 1986. Starting out as a street racer in 1969, this GTS has spent most/all of its life as a race car.

  • LS23M9B3181**:

  • LS23M9B3203**:

  • LS23M9B3417**:

  • LS23M9B3417**: GTS#161: Another "M" code saved from drag strip duties by Charlie K. from OH. This white 440 GTS is a number matching 52,000 original mile GTS. Black bumble bee and a vibrant red interior round out the visual cues! Equipped with the 727 and 3.55 gears, this M code was originally sold in Columbus, OH and spent most of its life running a quarter mile at a time!

  • LS23M9B3427**: VON 902108

  • LS23M9B3427**: GTS#50: Quite a history with this one. Owned by Randall from NC, this is a stripe delete V2 Hemi Orange "M" code GTS that was originally purchased at Northland Dodge in Colombus, OH. The second owner purchased the GTS with only 7500 original miles, and it now carries only 11,775 miles and hasn't seen the light of day since 1982. This was a drag strip only car. Participating in the 1970 NHRA Nationals in Indy, and a class winner at Dragway 42. Now sporting a narrowed rear end, 6 point cage and wheel tubs. It has the original interior, which Randall will replace with repop pieces. Randall intends on keeping the GTS as a "pro street Day 2" type project. Plans for a "built" 496 stroker hidden under the stock appearing paint, valve covers, and air cleaner. Randall also intends on reproducing the funky white highlights around the wheelwells to keep that 1970's flavor!

  • LS23M9B344***: GTS#520: Richard S. loves his 1969 GTSs!! This is his third entry (so far) and joins his 2500 mile and 22,000 mile cars GTS#513 and GTS#519. This one is special too as Richard seems to stay away from the "ordinary" GTS! GTS#520 is a 440 M code GTS. Built in batch #902030 on Saturday, March 29, 1969. Painted B5 Bright Blue with a B3 Light Blue bucket seat interior and white bumble bee stripe. The 440 is backed by the only trans availabe with the 440: the 727 Torqueflite. Low optioned as the only two options are the wheel well and drip rail mouldings. Have to cut down on that racing weight anyway we can!

  • LS23M9B3468**: GTS#288: Built on March 29, 1969, this "M" code 440 GTS had lived a hard, hard life, but is now in the good hands of John H. from Massachusetts!! John bought this ragged out 440 GTS back in 1984, and completed the restoration in 1996. Among the most notable original features still with the car are the numbers matching 440 and 727, along with the original red line E70-14 in the trunk!!! The 440 has been built to withstand today's lower octane no lead fuel with 9:1 compression and hardened seats. The car is F3 Light Green Metallic with the F3 interior and black bumble bee stripe. Only options are the AM Music master radio and N85 Console Tachometer.

  • LS23M9B350***: GTS#376: The first entry for December 2007, and it is a 440 "M" code GTS!! This F3 Light Green 440 GTS is owned by Don A. It was built on March 29, 1969. Don is the third owner of this original Grand-Spaulding Dodge bought GTS. It is undergoing a rotissiere restoration to return to its factory fresh roots. F3 paint, with F3 light green interior and green vinyl top contrasted with the white bumble bee stripe. Don has the number match 440 under the hood, but is looking for a 727 to mount behind the RB engine. Don has been a long time fan of the Scat pack Dodges, and always dreamed of owning a bumble bee striped car. He certainly hits a home run with his first one!!

  • LS23M9B351***: GTS#548: ##OWNERSHIP CHANGE##--James T. from Texas now owns GTS #548 as of July, 2014! He will continue the restoration started by Jim G. Here is the original listing:It has been a while since a "M" code 440 GTS has surfaced here on the GTS Registry, but Jim G. is the lucky owner of this 87K original mile 440 GTS. Painted Y2 Yellow with a black interior, Jim has owned his GTS for about 18 months. He purchased the M code from a Chrysler dealer in Ohio that had the GTS for 15 years.

  • LS23M9B3578**: GTS#196: Another former race car hopefully returns to the street thanks to Winton W. from MI. This "M" code is W1 White with the red vinyl interior. Reportedly, this "M" was stolen from the HotRod Magazine parking lot before they could test the car. The car was recovered, and spent the remaining years on the drag strip!

  • LS23M9B3578**: GTS#328: Andrew B. from Indiana now owns this 1969 440 "M" code GTS. His dad's buddy owned the car in the late 1970's. Originally used as a street racer, the car was mini tubbed around 1979 and then tunred into a bracket bomber. Running in the high tens until about 1990-1992, the car was sold to a local farmer. The new owner parked the "M" code outside his barn for the next 15 years before Andrew rescued the forgotten GTS. Bough in March, 2004, Andrew had the 440 back on the track by August, 2004. The best time for the black "M" code is currently 11.34 @ 115.76. Andrew will have a new paint job in the "works" soon!!

  • LS23M9B3578**: GTS#278: Currently, this "M" code GTS is owned by Brian J. The real story behind this GTS comes from its original Al C. from Illinois. Al picked up the red 440 GTS by trading in his 1965 GTO. Not satisfied with the 440's performance(?!?) Al swapped in a Hemi from a wrecked 1968 Charger. Amongst the usual modifications, Al installed a Vertex magneto, big tube Hooker Headers, a Keith Black induction system involving a quartet of Weber 48MM IDA twin injectors, and a pair of 24K. GOLD plated valve covers. The Hemi "M" spent the next 10 years shuttling Al back and forth to work (!!!) and then spending the nights ripping the asphalt apart in street racing duels! In 1979, the "Wild Thang" was sold off in sections. Brian J. now owns the rolling chassis sans engine/trans/interior. The car awaits a restoration. The story takes a "Wild Thang" twist. Al C. (Remember him? The original owner) found his original red "M". The owner at that time had both the red "M" and a white Hemi Dart. The owner had passed away. Brian J. picked up the old red "M" from the estate, and Al bought the white 340 Swinger that had been Pro-Streeted and had a Hemi in the engine bay. His old "M" needed too much money, time, and work for Al to consider buying it back. How are these two connected, you ask??? The Hemi in the white version of Al's Hemi GTS is topped off by the original Keith Black induction system that graced Al's old "Hemi" GTS. That system was on display in an area speed shop after Al parted out his red GTS. The Weber topped manifold was stolen from the speed shop, recovered some month's later, sold to someone in Chicago, then found its way to California. Al located the system years later and bought it back because he missed looking out over the 8 shiny induction stacks!! A nice article was written in the October 2008 issue of Mopar Collector's Guide about the "Wild Thang"!

  • LS23M9B3578**: GTS#: A "M" code R4 BrightRed GTS built on 4-27-69. This one is owned by Wayne K. from MN. Having a black interior and a 3.55 SG, this Dodge was ordered thru White Bear Dodge. Formerly raced under the "Undertaker" name, and saved from the "crusher", this GTS has been given a full rotisserie restoration. Recently featured in the June2004 issue of Musclecar Enthusiast, Wayne can now produly proclaim he has a "Magazine car"!! Congrats to Wayne!

  • LS23M9B357***: GTS#225: ##OWNERSHIP UPDATE##:OWNERSHIP UPDATE #2-10/25/2012: Vince M. is the current owner for GTS#225. There was at least one more owner between Dave H. from MN owning this GTS and Vince as Vince bought the M code out of MA. Here is the previous update and original listing: OWNERSHIP UPDATE #1-Dave H. from MN (also owns GTS#324) now owns this "M" code. Dave plans on retiring the old race horse and doing a full resto on the GTS over the next few years. Here is the original listing: George S. from IL. owns this "M" code that has been heavily modified during its lifetime. George found this "M" at a State Police auction. He had to dig deep to fine the original green under shaved door handles and emblems of the RED painted GTS. The rusty, holed floored panels were replaced, a set of Weld wheels and M/T slicks replaced the rotted old rubber and rusty Cragers. The fender tag and broadcast sheet are loooong gone, but the VIN matches in all three locations. Still sporting a 440 and a 727, George's "M" runs low 12's at 110mph!

    How to Spot a FAKE "M" Code 440 GTS:






    UPDATE**************UPDATE: Please read the following account and bear in mind that the current owner has CORRECTED the "L" in the VIN!!!!

    Recently on an internet auction site there was a red 1969 GTS listed for auction. The seller claimed that the car is a rare "1 of 30" 4 speed 440 GTS. Now, as we all know, ALL 440 GTS cars in 1969 came with console shifted Torqueflite 727 transmissions. Also, they came with the letter "M" as the fifth digit in the VIN. Look closely at the VIN tag pictured above. Notice anything "funny"???? Like the letter "L" in the fifth digit spot??? That's nice. "L" was used in the B-body production VIN sequence. As we ALL know, "P", "H", and "M" were the ONLY three engine codes used on the 1967-1969 GTS cars!!! The seller also conveniently has lost the fender tag and broadcast sheet. He has a title with the "L" in the VIN. However, this is suspect because if this vehicle were registered and titled in the state of Alabama, all you would need is a "bill of sale" from a former owner, and the VIN off the dashboard. Convenient that the VIN plate has been obviously altered, so now there is a improper title that comes with the car. Now notice the VIN on the transmission case. Notice the "H"?? This is a former 383 GTS 4 speed car that has a 440 between the fenders and the owner has illegally tampered with the dashboard VIN plate. If there really WAS an "L" in the VIN (which there NEVER WAS ON A GTS!!) then that "L" would also be reflected in the transmission and engine VIN stampings for 1969. This transmission has an "H" with the matching 6 digit serial number.
    This vehicle has been circulating since the 1990's.

    IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!

    Tom R. has recently purchased this modified 383 GTS from the listing dealer for a fair market price as a modified 383 GTS. Tom R. has notified me on 3-11-2007 that he has finally achieved his goal and has the had the VIN changed back to the proper "H" code in the fifth digit!!
    The Musclecar hobby owes Tom a debt of gratitude for keeping the seller honest in his pricing, and for following thru with Tom's promise of getting the VIN to LEGALLY show the "H" code. This has NOT been an easy journey for Tom and I hope he doesn't lose his enthusiasm for the hobby in general, and for the GTS in particular!! THANKS Tom!!!


    **NEW** Warning to potential GTS owners:


    We will post any possible fraudulent VIN here, any bad GTS clones, or poor attempts to rebody a GTS in order to turn a profit. Please send any info you may have about any GTS imposter to the GTS Registry!

  • WARNING: As shown above. LS23L9B241824. This is an apparent attempt to falsify a VIN badge turning a 1969 383 4speed GTS into a 440 GTS.
  • WARNING: Beware of a H code GTS bearing the following VIN: LS23H9B129123. This is a 383 GTS re-tagged as a 440 car. The VIN now reflects the proper "H" code in the fifth digit of the VIN!!

  • WARNING: White with red custom interior and red bumble stripe. Re-tagged Dart turned into a 383 GTS. VIN: LS23H9B145***.

  • WARNING: LS23P8B105930. White 1968 340/727 GTS dismantled by owner.

  • WARNING: LS23P9B218797. This GTS was parted out to supply GTS parts in the creation of a 383 H code GTS clone based on a 1969 Dart 270 Custom body. The clone "GTS" has a VIN of LH23F9B241553. The clone car was advertised as such.

    The Dean Registry

    Recently, I have been contacted by Patrick Dean via our good friend "GTS Dave" Ardoin. Patrick collected a number of VINs related to the A-body musclecar of 1969-the GTS and the 340 Swinger. Patrick was kind enough to share his list with this GTS Registry. Similar to the Alan Miller 1967/1968 GTS Registry (found on the 67/69 GTS Registry page) Patrick compiled his list during the 1980's. The Dean Registry contains 59 GTSs-including 25 440 "M" code GTSs!!! From these 59 cars, we have ONLY 7 listed in this GTS Registry. As with the Miller Registry, the question is: WHERE DID ALL THE GTSports GO??? Of special note, in the list of 340 Swingers that Patrick collected, he may have the VIN of the first 340 Swinger built for 1969!! VIN was LM23P9B100040! This was sent from a salvage yard in Las Vegas circa 1988!! I have included the 340 Swingers in the list below to honor our A-body high perfomance cousin-the 1969 340 Swinger!! Also, if you want to add your 1969 340 Swinger to the list below, please send me your info. The entries that you see with names and info have been sent to the GTS Registry and I have added them to Patrick's original list.
    There will be a *PDR* notation next to the VIN of any GTS found in both this GTS Registry, as in the Dean Registry!

    MANY THANKS to Patrick Dean for saving his Registry, and for allowing us to share it with the GTS Registry!! It complements the 67/68 Miller Registry!! Currently, I am waiting for word on a "M" code Registry that has over 70 440 "M" codes listed. I hope to have that soon!

    Triple Solid Gold!




    I am a firm believer that one of the things that makes this Registry "tick" are the interesting stories that we receive from fellow GTS owners. Stories like the "Tornado Survivor 1967 GTS" or the international stories like Ragnar's of Iceland, or the Norwegian GTS owned by Lars S.

    The three GTSs that are pictured directly above are all owned by Ken W. from Wisconsin. That's right. All three. Look closely at all three GTSs linked in the story below and you can tell the minor differences between them. All three are listed in proper order above in the Registry. Ken relates the following:
    In 1976 he bought his first GTS. It is the 383 automatic of the trio. He paid $300 for the car. He restored the car 10 years ago ( 1993 ) and has driven it since.
    In 1978, while on his way to Green Bay, Ken spotted a gold GTS convertible. Thinking it was his, and had been stolen (!), Ken stopped to check out the GTS. It is a 340 automatic car and it was for sale. It wasn't until 6 years later that Ken noticed the 383 GTS and the 340 GTS were only ONE CAR APART from having sequencial VINs!!!!!!!! That's right, his 383 car was built, then another Dodge, and then his 340 GTS! Odd??? I would think so!!!!!! Ken has been looking for the car in between his two gold GTSs ever since!!
    In 1994, Ken was at a car show and spotted a "For Sale" sign on a 1965 Satellite that listed a 1969 GTS. After calling the number, and getting directions, Ken drove to the owner's house. He discovered that the 1969 GTS for sale was ANOTHER gold convertible!!!!!! How's THAT for coincidence?!? This one is a 340 4 speed car, and it needed a lot of work. Ken paid only $100 for the third gold GTS in his set.
    Recently, Ken was looking for a hardtop GTS to add to his collection and came across a clean 1968 Dart instead. It's GOLD of course!!!! Ken has performed all the resto work himself on his "GOLD mine" of GTSs and he will never part with them individually. He promises that they will all go to his daughter and grandchildren! Sadly, I received notifiaction that Ken passed away in August of 2011.

    THANKS for the info and great story Ken!!!

    LOST: Looking for a 1969 Swinger340. LS23P9B388397. Was purchased new from Coast Dodge in Asbury Park, NJ. 340, 4 speed, B7 blue with deluxe interior. Stripe delete and 3 speed wipers. Anybody know of the whereabouts or demise of this Swinger340?? Email Frank at the GTS Registry if you have any info so I can pass it on to the former owner!

    LOST: 1969 383 GTS. Stolen in Oklahoma City circa 1972. The car was one of 488 made and if I remember correctly the production number was 102. The car was a Y2 Pale Yellow w/black vinyl top, 383-4bbl black bucket seats w/center console. If anyone has info I would appreciate hearing about it. If by chance someone has the car and has restored it that's ok too. I just would like to know it wasn't scrapped. If anyone recognizes the discription, even if it's the person who took the GTS, I won't do anything about it. After all, it's been 35 years, and I sure there are statutes that ran out years ago. This car was the 1st I bought on my own. Please contact me at me email address! Thanks, RANDY rjelsbury@yahoo.com
