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 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.

We have a 1968 Pontiac GTO here at Adventure Classics that has that great look, is a real 242 Vin code, that only real ones have, and is dressed to look like a Judge now.

Engine & Drivetrain

It wouldn't be a '68 GTO without a big block engine, and ours has that covered with a period 455 cubic inch V8 engine under the hood. It looks nice in the engine bay with its correct turquoise block, shiny chrome valve covers, and matching chrome air cleaner top with the 455-4 decal on it.

The big V8 inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor on top of the aluminum intake manifold and exhales with authority as the big tube headers, Flowmaster mufflers and equalized H-Pipe, add even more power while also contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust.

Best of all, you have complete control over this V8 and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the Muncie 4-speed manual transmission and Positraction rear end. Plus, you even have great driving features like power steering, power disk brakes, and even factory air conditioning.

Interior

Our GTO has a black twin front bucket seat with matching rear seat and door panels interior that has all the right vintage details like the wood-like paneling on the dash, tinted glass, factory radio, factory and accessory gauges, clock, three-spoke wood Pontiac steering wheel, Hurst shifter with white ball, center console, and black front and rear seat belts and carpeting.

Exterior

The GTO is the father of the muscle car, and nothing showcases a muscle car better than a bold paint job like the GTO we have, plus the addition of all the parts from a GTO Judge like dual hood scoops, Judge badging, Endura front bumper (exclusive to real-deal GTOs in '68), Judge GTO side stripe decal, Hide-Away Headlights, Hood Tac, Dual Mirrors, and the wide rear Judge spoiler on the trunk.

The GTO rides on custom chrome 5-spoke aftermarket mag wheels and Cooper Cobra Radial GT 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 it from us here at Adventure Classics.
