Saying Hello - Just Bought a 68 GTO

Hi guys,

Wanted to introduce myself to the forum. I live in San Diego and am an "A" body car fan. I have a 68 Chevelle and just bought a 68 GTO from the original owner. The GTO is all original 400/360hp with a close ratio 4 speed and Hurst shifter. I pick it up in 2 weeks. I post some photos of it when I get back to San Diego.

Cheers

Steve

Thanks 68GreenGoat.
I am looking forward to seeing it in person when I pick it up. I just had PHS fax me the sheet on the car vin. Built in Fremont CA. Still has the rear black plate and always registered with CA DMV. The build sheet shows it is a 4-speed close ratio with a safety track rear end. Has a push button radio with a manual antenna, retractable headlight covers, outside remote mirror, rally gauges in the dash, deluxe wheel discs, bucket seats, power steering 77 x 14 Red standard GTO tires. The original spare is still in the trunk and has never touched the road. The pictures so some light surface rust on the outside. My father-in-law serviced the car in Northern CA and the owner called him last week wanting to sell it. I was shocked to get that call. Anyways, the car was primavera beige and was repainted solar red. Not sure what color to keep it when I repaint. There are so many great looking cars on the site it's hard to choose. I need to order a reproduction for the front. Anyone know where I might find the build sheet? I know it was never removed from the car.

Cheers

Steve

Try these locations ...
on top of the gas tank,
between trunk floor and tank (hard to check there),
on top of glove box under dash.
shoved into front seat springs
inside the front left fender under bonnet down past firewall.

Thanks Tambo. I will check in those areas when I get the car back to San Diego. I found the build sheet to my 68 Chevelle under the dirty green carpet during it's restro.
