Paint: RR—Solar Red

Excellent from Top to Bottom

  • Paint and Body

The Solar Red (RR) paint on this GTO is almost as nice as it was when the car was at the Pontiac dealership in 1968.    The bold color of the body makes a wonderful contrast with the Black interior. 

The underside of this GTO appears solid and sound. 

  • Interior

The Black vinyl (223) interior is clean and fresh-looking, as one would expect in such a carefully restored car.

The gauges all work as do the lights and horn. The speedometer, tachometer and turn signals likewise work properly.  The clock, however, is stuck back in the late ‘60s!

  • Engine

This GTO retains its original 400 V-8 engine (see engine stamping picture), providing the power for this comfortable cruiser to suddenly become an exciting muscle car. At the turn of the key the engine comes to life with a promising exhaust rumble.

  • Transmission

The automatic 3-speed transmission works smoothly, and the car’s handling is enhanced by the limited slip differential.

  • Brakes

There are power disc brakes on the front wheels and drum on the rear, bringing this GTO to a quick halt without any pulling from side to side. 

  • Luxury and other features

This GTO will please the most discerning buyer:

  • Great looking exterior/interior;
  • Original 400cid engine;
  • Smooth/safe operation with automatic transmission and power front disc brakes;
  • A true ‘60s Muscle Car

A Fully-restored Example of Pontiac’s popular GTO
