For Sale: 1968 Pontiac GTO in Greene, Iowa

Vehicle Description

What we've got on the lot now is a real drop-top looker. This 1968 Pontiac GTO is the real deal, with stunning red paint and signature chrome GTO badging. This is also an authentic GTO, sporting the signature "42" code right in the VIN numbers. The beneficiary of a frame-off restoration some years ago and still sporting the original engine, this GTO has an extra-special flair about it. It also has a new paintjob, the red paint still looking as if it is still wet! Pontiac's GTO basically invented the muscle car segment of the 1960s, fitting a large engine into a lightweight frame for a ridiculous amount of speed. General Motors redesigned its A-body line for 1968, with more curvaceous, semi-fastback styling. This proved to be immensely popular, and by 1968, the GTO had become one of the industry's biggest sellers. This example is equipped with the very same engine it came with from the factory, a numbers-matching 400 C.I. V8 breathing fire through a 4-barrel carburetor good for around 350hp. All that power gets to the rear axle through the use of a 3-speed automatic transmission with a Hurst "T-Grip" shifter, allowing for both smooth cruising and the ability to do burnouts anytime you like. The correct R-code "Solar Red" exterior paint was recently redone, looking simply stunning after being buffed to a brilliant shine. This is the kind of paint that, although it has been finished, still looks wet to the touch! A black convertible top compliments that striking red paint nicely. The interior is just as beautiful, with black vinyl trim and woodgrain accenting on the dashboard. Bucket seats up front pair with the added convenience of a center console to make this GTO not only fast, but also extremely comfortable! Looking out over the muscular hood reveals a factory hood-tachometer, showing that this GTO means business. Options fitted to this '68 GTO include power steering, power brakes, a factory hood tach, dual mirrors, an AM/FM stereo, factory gauges, a heater + defroster, underdash auxiliary gauges, hideaway headlights, a convertible top, a rear spoiler, and a mean-sounding dual exhaust system. The car rides on a sweet set of American Racing TT wheels over B.F. Goodrich RWL tires for a look straight out of a Pontiac advertisement of the era. This GTO is looking for a new home, and we think it would look fantastic sitting in your garage.
