High Output 400: 1968 Pontiac GTO

1968 Pontiac GTO

This blackplate GTO has been parked for the past 15 years and needs a full restoration, but the seller claims that it has the HO (High Output) engine. All GTOs came with a 400 cubic inch engine, but the HO option added a better breathing exhaust and more aggressive cam. There were five different engines available in ’68 and this one slotted right in the middle, so it may not be as desirable or valuable as a Ram Air car, but it could still be a respectable runner. It’s located in Lakeport, California and is listed here on eBay where bidding ends tomorrow morning.

    Isn’t the base 350hp 400 4bbl the HO engine? Then you could upgrade to the Ram Air II for 68. That one would have functional scoops.

      No the base engine is the 350 hp 400, the HO brought power up to 360 hp. The Ram Air added even more power.
