Correct, striking, and all the right muscle car flair... It's not
hard to love this 1968 Pontiac Tempest. It has been given all the
right GTO Judge flair, so you get all the allure of one of the
6,725 original examples, but this hardtop coupe is at a far more
This is sought-after year for Pontiac fans. The upgraded Endura front end has a powerful, pointy presence; the sheetmetal has a curvy Coke-bottle profile; and the chrome rear bumper is expertly integrated into the design. Plus, we love a factory-correct color like Champagne on this coupe. It has a quality gloss and shine that's highlighted even further by the premium vinyl roof. But this also has all the right performance upgrades, like the dual cowl hood, GTO badging, rear spoiler, and iconic Rally II wheels. Plus, the correct striping package makes this a fine tribute to The Judge.
You paid a little bit more for a Pontiac back in the day, and you understand the premium difference the moment you look at the factory-correct gold interior with cool original insignia seats. This hardtop is ideal to carry family and friends with seating for up to six, but when it's just you out cruising, the fold down armrest provides individualized comfort. Plus, the carpeting, door panels, and dash are all complete and look good, so you'll be happy to show this one off everywhere. And when you do go out for a drive, this one feels great. The wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel with PMD center cap, GTO badging, auxiliary gauges, and very-cool hood tach all combine to give your senses the true muscle car experience.
When you lift the hood, you immediately recognize the blue block of the Pontiac 350 cubic-inch V8 radiating out of the dark black engine bay. But that's far from the only shine. The valve covers, air topper, and master cylinder all have a nice luster. This has the kind of extra tidy presentation that tells you the motor received all the right maintenance. That also means this one fires up easily, makes a clean rumble from the dual exhaust, and feels fantastic going down the road. Add in the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, and you have a very pleasing anytime classic.
This GTO tribute looks so good that it's up to you to decide if you want to tell others how much you saved. Don't miss this affordable opportunity. Call today!!!
