This vehicle was bought off the showroom floor in Castle Rock, CO by Richard Laufert, a pilot for United Airlines (United Parking Sticker remains on back of rear view mirror). he keep this to the early 1980's when it was sold to Doug Cosh.He drove the car from the early 1980's to 1987 from approximately 45,000 to 92,500 miles. The vehicle was then sold to Robert Thompson who drove it from 1987 to 1993 to approximately 100,000 miles.(December 1990 cover of the National GTO magazine "The Legend") The vehicle was in Colorado until it was sold to its fourth owner in Minnesota in1993 to 2013.

The Pontiac GTO is an automobile that was built by Pontiac from 1964 to 1974. The first generation GTO was a muscle car of th 1960s and 1970s era. Although there were earlier muscle cars, the Pontiac GTO is considered by some to have started the tren with all four domestic automakers offering a variety of competing models.
General Motors redesigned its A-body line for 1968, with more curvaceous, semi-fastback styling. Pontiac abandoned the famili vertically stacked headlights in favor of a horizontal layout, but made hidden headlights available at extra cost. The concealed headlights were a very popular option.
The signature hood scoop was replaced by dual scoops on either side of a prominent hood extending rearward from the protruding nose. A unique feature was the body-color Endura front bumper. It was designed to absorb impact without permanent deformation at low speeds.
The 1968 model year was also the last year the GTOs offered separate crank operated front door vent windows.
Another feature were concealed windshield wipers, hidden below the rear edge of the hood. They
presented a cleaner appearance.
Another popular option, actually introduced during the 1967 model year, was a hood- mounted tachometer. Incredibly good looking and located right in front well of the windshield, well lit and easily seen at night
Flaws/Needs I know of:
Checking of paint on Enduro front bumper
Small dent on hood at air scoop
Small crease in back of trunk lid at lower edge
Leak in heating coil (turned off don't drive with heat)
Power to hood tach
