1968 Pontiac Grand PrixThis is a one owner, number matching 1968 Pontiac Grand Prix H.O. 428, 4 speed. It has a factory hood tachometer, A/C, P/S, 8 lug Pontiac sport wheels, factory buckets, and a real cool factory console. The car is missing a few trim parts, the keys, needs a lower front valance panel, and has 2 bad motor mounts which is why the car was parked. I have set the reserve $2,500 less and I was offered by a Pontiac parts guy who claimed he could sell the drive train, buckets, and console with one phone call and double his money by parting out the car. As a car guy myself, I could not let him destroy a numbers matching, 50 year old vehicle regardless of rarity.
It appears with the H.O. drive train, the 1968 Grand Prix is very rare! The original owner gave me an email from the Pontiac Historic Society inferring they feel only 10 or less H.O. models remain on the road. Internet research seems to confirm that. In fact, the top 3 restoration catalogs don't even list a 1968 Grand Prix. I can tell you it is a very solid candidate for restoration given it is 50 years old. It does have bad spots on each quarter around the rear wheels that appeared to be repaired before and now is cracking and bubbling with rust. I am sure after blasting, you will find surprises. However, the floors are solid as is the trunk and chassis. In fact, the only horrible rust is the battery tray area. Please do your own research, as I am only passing on what I was told and read on the internet.
