400 CI V8, HOLLY 4-BARREL, 3-SPEED AUTOMATIC, FACTORY A/C, PS, PB, FRAME OFF RES
Few will argue that the 1967 Pontiac GTO is not a gorgeous car. Even among GTO fans, the '67 stands out as a high water mark in terms of styling. This sleek hardtop offers several desirable options and upgrades that earn it a spot on most enthusiasts' short list of cars to own before they die.
Originally code C-2, Cameo Ivory with a black vinyl roof, the restorer wisely chose a color that wasn't red, in this case, Montreaux Blue, and restored the padded roof. The result is an unusual and super clean Goat that speaks softly and carries a big stick. If the most famous muscle car of all time could be considered a sleeper, this might be it. But a low profile doesn't mean this one didn't get restored right. Up front the stacked headlights and split grille are Pontiac trademarks, with wire mesh inserts that recall European sports cars that inspired the GTO. In back, a re-chromed bumper and slotted taillights leave no question about the car's identity, even though Pontiac kept the GTO badges subtle.
The black interior is an excellent choice when contrasting with the blue exterior, and gives the car a a purposeful look that the original Parchment wouldn't have captured. According to the cowl tag, this is an original bucket seat/console car, and the seats have been masterfully reupholstered using materials that match the originals for texture and pattern. Both the carpets and dash pad are brand new and the door panels are excellent. Other cool options include a console with trick "his-and-hers" shifter, factory A/C, and a new AM/FM stereo radio in the original slot. The woodgrain dash appliques are in good condition with no peeling or fading (they are, after all, just decals), and the deep dish steering wheel is a perfect representation of the '60s-surely you already have a pair of string-back driving gloves, right? The trunk is neat and simple, with a correct mat, full-sized spare, and a complete jack assembly.
The engine is Pontiac's famous 400 cubic inch V8, and has been upgraded with an Edelbrock intake and a big Holley four-barrel carb under a chrome air cleaner. Detailed with Pontiac Turquoise paint on the block and chrome valve covers, it keeps a low profile that will satisfy purists. Interestingly enough, there is power steering, but no power brakes, suggesting that this car was built for combat when it was new. The great-sounding engine feeds a bulletproof TH400 3-speed automatic and 12-bolt rear differential. The suspension has been fully rebuilt, the floors are in good shape, and the cackling exhaust has just the right attitude for the '60s most famous muscle car. Pretty factory Rally wheels always look great, and the 215/65/15 General radials complete the sleeper look.
There are plenty of GTOs out there, but not many capture this one's clean look, potent powerplant, and outstanding pedigree. Call today!
