Looking for Value Advice '68 GTO Hardtop

New member looking for a little advice. I am looking at a '68 numbers matching 400/360 4-speed car with no power options. The only option I know of is the endura bumper delete. It is a solid car with a straight body and a good paint job but it is not the original color. Interior is decent but could use a little help. What kind of money (ballpark) is it worth?

I think it is probably worth $10K-$15K based on the condition you describe. Matt

Pictures would help for sure.

Endura delete is pretty rare but I'm not sure what kind of premium they command over a "garden variety" GTO.

360 HP? So is it a H.O. Endura delete 4 speed with no power options ? Could have been ordered to race (the steel bumper is lighter), what rear axle ratio?

More information please before we throw this into the $10 -15 K pile.

Thanks for the replies. The engine code is WT. I pulled 360 from the internet somewhere but since posting I have seen WT reported at both 350 and 360. I don't know the rear ratio but can probably find out.

OP, Of the 87,684 GTO's sold in 1968, only 2,108 were built with the chrome bumper up front.

$16k. Is the WT code an HO, 350 or 360?
