I know ever year GTO has unique attributes.Comparing how similar the 68 and 69 are only show me how different they really are. I searched years for front 68 valance trim only to come up up dry. Ames sells 69 front valance trim for about $40 bucks.......68 valance trim is about $400.I know you guys discussed the differences in 68/69 before, but as discussed prior ,the 68's are still a step child in availability to repro parts. Someday I will find a reasonable priced valance molding.

I feel your pain brother. I searched for 15 years for a rear drivers side wheel well trim until Ames finally made a repro (I wasn't about to pay $150 for nos). My search for a correct clutch linkage zbar was almost as epic, but only took 3 years. Luckily my valence trim was in ok shape, but cost me about $70 each to have plated. Damn potmetal. That's the price you pay for having the best looking year GTO ever made, wink wink.

That's exactly why we drive '68s, lack of interest from the masses. However, our pocketbook suffers in the process.
