I saw the book of bills the seller had assembled, and the claimed $120,000 spent on restoration was well documented, if a bit outrageous
Of the more than 77,000 GTOs built in 1968, fewer than 10,000 were convertibles. The meticulously restored GTO pictured here has only 68,000 original miles and features several factory options, including Hurst shifter, power windows, power steering, power antenna and trunk release. Under the hood sits the 400 Ram Air mated to a Turbo 400 automatic transmission and 3:55 Posi-traction rear end. The engine has been completely overhauled. Rebuild work included porting and polishing the cylinder heads, refurbishing the intake and having the carburetor jetted.
The vehicle has been owned and cared for by the same owner since 1978. With over $120,000 spent to bring this muscle car to concours condition, the new owner will certainly enjoy using it to show or drive.
