This 1968 Pontiac GTO is wearing what Pontiac called in its brochure “…the most fantastic bumper since the invention of the bumper.” They went on to point out how it wouldn’t chip, fade, or corrode; it was made of a urethane foam-based material that bore the brand name Endura, and it spelled the beginning of the end of the chrome bumper. Pontiac also touted the GTO’s disappearing windshield wipers (not so great in the winter), disappearing headlights, and redline tires. A 400-cu. in. V-8 was standard, with a three-speed Hurst shifter and dual exhausts. Didn’t find mention of any cupholders, however, Lol… Saw this one last week at the weekly Wednesday night Cruise-In at Tonawanda’s Texas Roadhouse.
