REAL CODE 42 GTO, 400 V8, AUTO, 12-BOLT, R134 A/C, POWER STEERING AND BRAKES!!
Few will argue that this 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 has been beautifully restored from top to bottom and 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 SS Champagne, the restorer wisely chose a color that closely replicates the original hue, in this case, Pewter, which comes from the late-model GM color chart. 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. Quite the opposite, in fact. With a low-profile color, it's the details and the quality that make it stand out, from the laser-straight quarter panels, to the panel gaps, to the trim and badges, this car is all about getting the little stuff right. The paint has a little bit of wear on it here and there, but that's OK on a car that's going to get driven a lot, and from even 5 feet away, it still looks new. 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 shiny chrome 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 Pewter exterior, and gives the car a dash of character that looks racy and upscale at the same time. As far as we can tell, this is an original bucket seat/console car, and the seats have been neatly reupholstered using materials that match the original for texture and pattern. Other cool options include a Rally gauge cluster with tachometer, an AM radio, and an aftermarket A/C system under the dash that uses modern hardware to make it very effective. The woodgrain 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 also correctly finished with a reproduction mat and a full-sized spare tire assembly.
The engine is the a thumping Pontiac 400 cubic inch V8, and has been upgraded with an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor living under the original louvered air cleaner. The rest of the engine bay is neatly detailed with Pontiac Turquoise paint on the block, chrome valve covers, and satin black inner fenders, and it all looks quite correct. There's a big aluminum radiator up front and the power brake booster is recent, so it feels confident on the road. An original-spec TH400 3-speed automatic feeds a 12-bolt rear end, and the chassis is in great shape, nice enough that you'll want to show it off a bit. The suspension offers recent shocks and there's a brand new Flowmaster exhaust system that gives it that awesome muscle car rumble. Handsome factory Rally II wheels always look great, and the staggered 215/70/15 front and 225/70/15 rear white-letter radials complete the sporty look.
There are plenty of GTOs out there, but not many capture this one's clean look, potent powerplant, and comfortable interior. Call today!
