DESCRIPTION

Sleek, powerful, and quite affordable this 1968 Pontiac GTO coupe is that perfect mix of where the features you want in a vintage sports car meet the value you need.

The subtle Mayfair Maize on this real-deal 242-code GTO gives it sophisticated first impression. This factory-correct color was nicely re-applied later in life, and so it retains a fine kind of modern clearcoat shine. It's a cool way to have a backdrop for all the aggressive pieces, like the blacked-out front end, dual hood scoops, flared fenders, and full-width rear spoiler. The color-matched Endura front end made for one of the most distinct Pontiac designs ever. And for lovers of brightwork, there's the form-fitting rear chrome bumper and American Racing's special edition Torque Thrust polished 17-inch wheels.

You paid a little bit more for a Pontiac back in the day, and the premium difference can be felt the moment you sit down in the bucket seat. All the black elements, including the seat covers, headliner, and carpeting have the feeling of good care and the right maintenance. This is a comfortable center console car with bright wood appearance panels used through the center section and dash to break up its fashionable black. The driver gets a three-spoke steering wheel, and beyond that is the deep tri-pod sporty gauge setup. You might also notice the B&M Quicksilver shifter and a set of auxiliary readouts, which help clue you in on something special in the engine bay.

The largest motor available in '68 was the 400ci V8. That's a nice powerplant, but there's no replacement for displacement. That's why this was upgraded to a later 455 cubic-inch motor. Crisp hoses, bright valve covers, and Pontiac's hallmark turquoise block give this a nice presentation. So you'll not only talk about this upgrade, but you'll happily show it off, too. The V8 inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. And the big motor exhales with authority out of the dual exhaust. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit built for big power, and it also knows how to deliver comfortable cruising. Plus, you have great anytime features like power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and modern performance tires.

This is a powerful real-deal GTO that retains its correct colors and intimidating attitude. And it's all for quite a nice price. Don't miss out, call today!
