Rare Actual Miles 1968 Pontiac GTO

History
The Pontiac GTO is an automobile that was built by Pontiac in generations from 1964 to 1974 model years, and by GM's subsidiary Holden in Australia from 2004 to 2006.

The first generation GTO was a muscle car of the 1960s and 1970s era. Although there were earlier muscle cars, the Pontiac GTO is considered by some to have started the trend with all four domestic automakers offering a variety of competing models.

General Motors redesigned it's 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.

Though a rare option, a GTO could be ordered with "Endura delete”, in which case the Endura bumper would be replaced by a chrome front bumper and grille from the Pontiac Le Mans.

We have one of those incredibly rare 1968 Pontiac GTO's, here at Skyway Classics, that were special ordered with less than a couple thousand ever produced in 1968 with the rare option Endura delete. Pontiac gave customers the options to order the car with Endura delete . It deleted the poly front end treatment and instead came with the chrome metal front end.

Features & Options
This is a real 242 VIN GTO (see the pics.) It is a low mile restored GTO showing just 88,992 actual miles. The restoration included painting it back to the original factory Solar Red and put on a new Black Vinyl roof!

It has its original born with numbers matching 400 CID V8 that has also been powerhouse been freshly rebuilt and shifts thru its column mounted 3-Speed automatic transmission (also a rare option) with 2.93 gears in the rear. The engine compartment is also detailed and painted back to much like the way it was on the showroom floor back in 1968.

The GTO rides on period correct 15” Cragar SS wheels and has Power Brakes, Power Steering, Anti-Theft System, and radial tires.

The interior of this rare GTO has the correct Parchment Vinyl bucket seats, seat belts, vinyl interior, GTO floor mats, black carpet, which has all been restored if needed or left original.

The current owner says that this GTO has all its original sheet metal and it is incredibly solid, runs and drives great, starts right up and has a true muscle car sound with her dual exhaust exiting out the rear.
