1968 Pontiac GTO Coupe - Motor Trend's 1968 "Car of the year"

400-4V, Automatic, Flambeau Burgundy with White vinyl top, Parchment interior with bucket seats and a console.

I purchased this car off of a friend of mine in Oregon, he was going thru a divorce and needed to sell his baby. He's been restoring this car since 2004 and I have every receipt showing the parts and labor he's put into the car. The engine is a 1968/69 Pontiac 400 service replacement block (same number block as a GTO/Automatic from 68 and 69) - he bought the car from the original owner who said he blew the engine up in the late 60's and it was replaced under warranty, it' still wears the original 1968 #16 heads and still has the original carb (rebuilt). I believe the transmission is also original but I have not verified it as of yet. The car is super straight and the undercarriage is as clean as the top. I have the PHS docs for the car. The restoration was done to reflect the original car with the exception of the wheels and tires. The original scheme was red lines with hub caps - no thanks. The Rally II's with BFG radial TA's are much nicer looking. ZERO RUST ANYWHERE!! The paint is very nice and the new vinyl top is in great shape. All new weather stripping, paint, top, trim, seat covers, headliner, carpet, modern stereo, new disc brakes up front, new drums and brakes out back, ceramic coated headers with new aluminized exhaust all the way back to the vintage exhaust tips, you can tell it has a bit of a cam. I just had the engine fully tuned and she starts up quick and idles nicely. The dash has digital gauges but looks like old school with sweeping needles as opposed to digital numbers, much nicer. The car was completely re-wired using Ames performance harnesses front to back. power steering, power front disc brakes, all new body bushing, and steering components.

Runs and drives great! I don't think there's more than 75 miles on this car - it really needs to be driven.

UPDATE: The car now has the correct chrome wheel well trim installed - pics once the weather improves. Sorry...
