Technically that is incorrect. The '68 GTO had the Endura bumper & hidden headlights as standard equipment. The chrome front bumper and the fixed headlights were 'delete options'. In other words; you could order a car without these features... and usually a delete option resulted in a credit to the sticker price. Delete option headlights & bumper were not offered for '69.

wikipedia is -generally speaking- a real mess. They should be barred from using "-pedia" in their name until everything is factually checked and viewer editing ability is discontinued. I'll clean up the GTO entry when I get a chance...

I liked the question, it IS an unusual situation regarding the headlights/bumper- just a technicality trip-up no doubt based on erroneous sources. It can be hard to pick your way around those.
