Classic Car Overview

Gateway Classic Cars of Milwaukee is proud to present to you this gorgeous numbers matching 1968 Pontiac GTO this car is backed up with Pontiac Historical paperwork. The GTO is arguably Pontiacs most famous model of all time and was the inspiration for one heck of a marketing campaign, countless songs and even a mens cologne! The GTO also carried many nick names such as The Goat, The Great One and after 1969 The Judge. The GTO story starts back in 1963 when up and coming Pontiac executive John DeLorean produced a simple yet revolutionary idea; drop a big motor into a midsized body and gear it towards young adults. The GTO was a smash hit immediately. GM originally planned on building 5000 cars of the 1964 model year, the car was so successful over 32000 were built in the first year alone. For the 68 season GM had redesigned their A-Body platform. A more curvaceous, yet muscle car buyers were looking for and Pontiac found 87684 buyers for their newly designed Goat. Styling cues on the 68 GTOs were a complete departure from its predecessor and many quintessential featured debuted on the 1968 GTOs including the Endura front bumper that was painted to match the body of the car, a fastback styled rear end was reminiscent of the General Motors cars of the late 40s and the Pontiac Arrowhead logo was used as the rear marker light! How cool is that? The 68 GTO was also the first Goat to offer concealed windshield wipers that are tucked away under the hood which gives the car a much sleeker look. The 1968 GTO was such a home run, not only was the 68 the second-best selling GTO of all time the car was also chosen as Motor Trend Magazines Car of the Year in 1968. Hot Rodding Magazine called the carthe best balanced Pontiac ever built. With the raw power and beautiful style this car offers. Our featured GTO is powered by its original 400ci engine matched up to its original 4 speed Muncie transmission backed with PHS documentation. The car was recently repainted to its original Verdoro Green with the Pontiac Gold Vinyl (code 221) interior, the chassis was made media blasted any issues were addressed and repainted. Upgrades to the car have been professionally done including power disc brakes in front, a tachometer was added into the gage cluster that looks straight from the factory, new exhaust system. A Pertronix ignition system was also installed replacing those pesky old points. This car is also appointed with power steering, posi-traction new Rally II wheels and raised white letter tires. Take a trip back in time to one of the most significant years of the 20th century in the GOAT.
