Vehicle Description

1968 GTO Convertible

Car History

The Pontiac GTO is an automobile that was built by Pontiac in generations from 1964 to 1974 model years. That first generation GTO was the muscle car of the 1960s and 1970s era.

General Motors redesigned its A-body for 1968, with a unique feature that was the body-color Endura front bumper. It was designed to absorb impact without permanent deformation at low speeds. Pontiac touted this feature heavily in advertising, showing hammering at the bumper to no discernible effect.

We have a 1968 Pontiac GTO convertible here at Adventure Classics that has that great look, is a real 242 Vin code that only real ones have, has a great color combo with that red exterior paint, red interior, and a white convertible top.

Engine & Drivetrain

It wouldn't be a '68 GTO without a big block Pontiac engine, and ours has that covered with what we believe to be the original numbers matching 400 cubic inch V8 engine under the hood.

It looks nice in the engine bay with its correct turquoise block, heads, and intake, chrome factory Pontiac valve covers, and factory black painted air cleaner assembly with the 400-4 decal on top telling you what engine it has.

The big V8 inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor on top of the intake manifold and exhales with authority with the dual exhaust system.

Best of all, you have complete control over this V8 thanks to the Hurst Dual-Gate automatic shifter in the console that allows you to shift the three-speed automatic shifter in a manual mode if you so desire.

Plus, you even have great driving features like power steering and power disk brakes.

Interior

Our GTO has a originality to it with the great red twin front bucket seat with matching rear seat and door panels as well as the red interior that has all the right vintage details like the wood-like paneling on the dash, aftermarket radio, factory and accessory gauges, three-spoke wood Pontiac steering wheel, center console, and black front and rear seat belts and red carpeting.

Exterior

The GTO is the father of the muscle car, and nothing showcases a muscle car better than a driver quality red paint job like the GTO we have with the GTO styling including the dual hood scoops, Endura front bumper (exclusive to real-deal GTOs in '68), Dual chrome Mirrors, and the GTO badging, with that sharp white convertible top setting it all off.

The GTO rides on factory Pontiac 5-spoke wheels with chrome trim rings and center cap and white sidewall tires with great sounds coming out the dual chrome tips on each side of the rear bumper.

Conclusion

The 1968 GTO was selected Motor Trend Car of the Year in 1968, and you can have your GTO of this year when you purchase the one we have here at Adventure Classics.
