1968 Pontiac GTO - Car of the Year

From John Gunnell’s book “75 Years of Pontiac Oakland“:

“Pontiac Motor Division was determined to regain its production momentum during the 1968 model year. The full-sized models received a rather boldly styled facelift, Tempest models had a completely new body design , and the sporty Firebirds looked almost the same except the the vent window was eliminated.”

“Several industry “firsts” were introduced when the 1968 Pontiacs appeared in dealer showrooms. The features included an integrated microcircuit charging system and a revolutionary energy-absorbing front bumper on the GTO models. For the fourth time in history Motor Trend magazine presented its coveted “Golden Calipers” trophy to Pontiac, naming the 1968 “Tiger” as its pick for Car of the Year.”

“Sales and production for the 1968 model year wee the strongest in the division’s history. A total of 910,977 units were produced.”
