Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is a restored 1968 Pontiac GTO.
“During the restoration, the body was media-blasted to bare metal, then disassembled for repairs,” the listing states. “The rear quarter panels, door skins, package tray, and cowl were replaced with reproduction parts. According to the seller, all rust damage was repaired using the correct gauge of sheet metal and MIG-welded. The welds and body seams were treated with rust inhibitor and sealed. The bodywork was covered with self-etching primer and polyester high-build primer, then block-sanded and disassembled again for the application of two-stage Sherwin-Williams Starlight Black paint. Following that, the panels were wet-sanded and buffed before being put back together.”
It rides on gray 14-inch Pontiac Rally II wheels with chrome center caps, stainless trim rings, and 225/70 BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires.
This GTO features front bucket seats, rear seat, door panels and trim upholstered in black vinyl. Simulated wood grain on the dash complements the black interior and further interior appointments include a center console, and an AM radio.
Under the hood is a 400ci V8 and the engine bay is accented by a metallic light blue engine block, heads, and intake. The engine also features a black air cleaner with a chrome lid, and chrome valve covers. A four-speed manual transmission sends power to the rear wheels.
This GTO has manual steering, power drum brakes, and a full-length dual exhaust system that exits at the rear through two outlets.
The odometer reads 375 miles, which the seller states reflects the number of miles logged since the restoration was completed, but the true mileage on this vehicle is unknown.
The sale includes a clear New Mexico title, restoration photos, receipts, and Pontiac Historic Services documentation.
