This 1968 GTO is the ultra-rare and desirable Ram Air II model from the private collection of Jim Mattison, founder of Pontiac Historical Services (PHS). It is one of only 199 4-speed Ram Air II GTOs built in 1968. This car still retains its born-with engine, transmission and rear-axle components. The car received a no-excuses, frame-off, three-year restoration and was completed in 2013.

The Shelby is being offered with no attempts having been made to…
