This car is stored in our Lockeford (border of Lodi) warehouse for
easier access from Sacramento and the Bay Area. Evidence appears to
show that this car spent its whole life in Arizona until a major
GTO collector bought it at a Mecum Auction in Anaheim CA nearly 5
years ago; it's been driven less than 1200 miles since that
auction. It's current owner bought the car two years ago at a huge
multi-store CA consignment dealer. Early in the photos are factory
broadcast sheets found under a seat indicating this car is an
authentic GTO built in the Fremont CA factory.Except for the paint
and the replacement of back seat upholstery dash cover and carpets
the car is entirely original. The paint is perfect and the interior
excellent. Virtually no rust (see undercarriage photos). Brakes and
tires are at 50% remaining life. The soft top is in great shape but
its headliner has some tears. The radiator was recently replaced.
The Pontiac Historical Society (PHS) has verified the production
details of this car (see at the end of the photos). This beauty is
stored in our new display warehouse location near Lockeford near
Lodi CA (about 45 minutes from Sacramento International
Airport).General Motors drastically redesigned its A-body line for
1968 with more curvaceous semi-fastback styling which was a revival
of a streamlining on all GM products from 1942 until 1950 as
demonstrated on the Pontiac Streamliner. The new GTO featured a new
shorter 112-inch wheelbase for the 2-door models and the
fashionable long hood-short deck treatment. The 1968 Pontiac GTO
received hidden headlights and an energy absorbing body-colored
polyurethane front bumper. The dash was redesigned with three pods.
The left gauge showed oil charging and coolant temperature lights
and the fuel gauge. The speedometer took up the center space and
the right gauge could either be an 8000 tachometer or a large rally
clock. GTO sales rebounded to 87684 units with 77704 Hardtops and
9980 Convertibles for the 1968 model year.According to Hagerty
Valuation Tools this year/model GTO has been relatively flat in
value for over 5 years. Beginning in May of 2021 the valuations are
up about 8%: #1 Concours $92700 #2 Excellent $77760 #3 Good $49500
#4 Fair $35270. The values shown are for this car's exact build
minus 10% for the automatic transmission. Near the end of the
photos is a Hagerty value chart. We believe this car is less than a
Hagerty #2 but definitely more than a #3. Our offering price of
$59900 is certainly reasonable. This car is something you can be
thrilled driving and be warmly welcomed at any classic car event.
