This is a Beautiful Number Matching 1968 Pontiac GTO
Numbers Matching, PHS Documented, 1st Place winner at the Muscle Car Classic!
We have a stunning Numbers Matching 1968 Pontiac GTO for sale. The 1968 Pontiac GTO was Motor Trend's car of the year in 1968 and this beauty of a GTO shows why. This fabulous Vedora green machine wowed 'em at the Muscle Car Classic with an impressive first place win. The car was also featured in Car Craft magazine in 2003 (Dyno Proven engine combos), and the engine has been fine tuned to an even higher caliber since that article.
The ALL numbers matching 400 bored engine now boasts 330hp and 400 torque at the rear wheels. It's a 4 speed GTO with many rare options, including a reclining passenger seat with headrests. The rare AM/FM factory radio still works. But perhaps the rarest of all the options is the numbers matching very very rare 3:55 gear "N"case 4 pinion posi rear end. This is the Nodular Iron case with Hot forged axles.
This is an all numbers matching, phs documented GTO. All original documents come with the car (Original window sticker/GM reproduction window sticker/proteco plate/broadcast sheet/glove box owners manuals/etc.). The very few parts on this car that are not factory, from the engine to the interior, come with the car. This includes the numbers matching distributor/alternator/and Harrison radiator, and even the original carpets with tags in good shape.
