1968 Pontiac GTO Engine Idle Car Craft Magazine
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1968-pontiac-gto/ to see this amazing 1968 Pontiac GTO from Sunset Classics. This fabulous Vedora Green machine wowed 'em at the Muscle Car Classic with an impressive first place win. She sports a wicked Pontiac 406ci V-8 Engine that kicks out an impressive 330HP. A Numbers matching very very rare 3:55 gear "N"case 4 pinion posi rear end. And so much more fun stuff I get the chills just thinking about all that high performance fun.
This great GTO was featured in Car Craft magazine in 2003 (Dyno Proven engine combos). At that time it was Dyno'd at 313HP with 362lb-ft. Since then it has been fine tuned to even better performance.

1968 Pontiac GTO 400 V8 Hurst Shifted Original Muscle Car
This is an amazing three-owner, PHS documented, real 1968 GTO that is sure to make some collector proud! The engine is the original, numbers matching 400 CID, 350 HP YS code engine that has been completely rebuilt by the previous owner. It has a stock compression ratio of 10.75 to 1, Torquer series camshaft and intake from Edelbrock, roller rockers, new Quick Fuel SS-750 carburetor, Hooker headers, and newer alternator, Howe 4 core radiator, and twin electric cooling fans. The transmission is a factory correct 400 turbo that has been rebuilt and has a 2800-3000 stall converter. The rear end is also worth mentioning - it is the original, numbers matching 10 bolt rear end with a newer Auburn carrier and 3.90 Richmond gears. The body has been removed from the frame by the previous owner, and there were new body mounts and hardware installed, as well as all of the factory undercoating removed. The trunk and floor pans were then painted semi-gloss black for a clean look to the undercarriage. The paint on this car is base coat/clear coat Regimental Red and it looks very good! The interior is white vinyl bucket seats with a center console and Hurst His and Her shifter, and with the exception of new carpet and a new headliner is in very nice original condition. Other options on this car include A/C that has been upgraded to R134-A, AM/FM radio, power steering, power disc brakes, rear air bags, Hotchkis front and rear sway bar kit, Hotchkis upper and lower rear control arm kit, new 15" Rally II wheels with new trim rings and center caps, BF Goodrich raised white letter radial tires, full size spare tire, seat belts, remote mirror, and hideaway headlights. Documentation that is with the car includes the original owner's manual, build sheet, Protect-O-Plate, and the original dealer's bill of sale. Thanks for checking it out!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano. 011
