1968 Pontiac GTO GTO1968 Pontiac GTO. Beautiful car that underwent a full body on restoration in about 2008. Driven less than 1500 miles since. Included are pictures of the restoration. Cameo Ivory with Turquoise blue interior. Car shines beautifully and is laser straight. I have the protecto plate and owner history. Everything I have will of coarse go with the car. Always a midwestern car. Iowa now Nebraska. I had a car show sign with description of the car for display. I'll include that in deal.
Bought new in Waverly Iowa at Ritchie Pontiac. Original owners kept car until 1978 and then sold it to their neighbor kid who kept it until about 2007. Was then sold to a restoration shop near Des Moines Iowa. It underwent the restoration there for a couple living in Des Moines. Half way through the restoration the Buyer passed away and the wife was left to leave the "Dream Car" of her husbands stored and undriven until July of 2015 when I got it.
The car is very straight and solid. Please supersize the photos in my listing to see the quality. It had new rear full quarter panels installed. All chemical stripped body and re worked to the beautiful example it is today. All new wheel open moldings. The engine compartment was freshened up and the whole trunk was restored with splatter paint and a new mat. See pictures. The under body is clean and solid. Undercoated and sprayed black. Looks awesome. Has been driven some though. I see no body filler or bubbles anywhere in this car. It was done right.
The interior is way above average. The head liner, arpet, ear package tray were all new. You may notice the rear headliner sale panels. They could use just some snugging up. If I have time I'll do it. The interior is nicer than pics show. I recovered the front and rear seats with factory covers from OPG. The door panels and dash and dashboard are original. Minor dash crack . The car was an 8 track car, nd is long gone, o there is an opening down low where that should be. Factory AM FM radio. Works OK. The horn center cap is original and shows age.The engine was rebuilt a while back to stock specs with I believe a performer cam, nd has about 40K on it. Nice turbo type dual exhaust. I located the last part of the vin on the front of the block. The Transmission was rebuild about 1500 miles ago. The Air Conditioner works as there are receipts for it being re worked, owever the flow of the air is weak. Resistor? Fan? This car runs drives stops and handles awesome. Upper a frame bushings showing age. Tires are new and the factory wheels were restored too. Higher octane gas is a must as it pings with the cheap stuff. Car is tuned and timed perfect.The rear bumper was rechromed. Dual exhaust is mean and sounds great. All lights blinkers etc work fine. Car has the optional hide away head lights. All was restored and works good. The front rubber bumper has some slight cracks. Don't know how that happened but it is there. Doesn't look bad though.
To sum it up your bidding on a real nice car. It runs and drives terrific. Very little left to do to make her absolute perfect. Very tight solid car. Gets right up to 80 MPH with ease.
I'm offering this car with the "Buy It Now" option. You could not buy a numbers match GTO and restore it for the price. I showed this car last summer 3 times and got 3 trophies! Local shows.
The car is sold "as is". I'm a one man operation and have a garage with a few classics. Mopars are my passion. But this GTO was too nice to pass up. I hold a Ne Dealers license Superior Auto in Omaha, e. This is not my source of only income. It's my hobby. Check my feed back. I'm a straight shooter. I get windy in my descriptions, ut you can never have too much info dealing over the scary World Wide Web!

Thanks and good luck!!
