REAL CODE 42 GOAT, 400 YS V8, HIS-N-HER HURST, FACTORY A/C, PWR STEER & BRAKES!
You can always count on the Pontiac GTO to generate attention, and when you paint it sinister black like this 1967 hardtop, you'd better be prepared to have everyone notice you drive by! With a stout 400 cubic inch V8, lots of options, and a great stance, this is an affordable Goat that you can drive without worries.
Originally code H Linden Green, which is definitely a love-it-or-hate-it color, this GTO received a more popular shade of Starlight Black when it was repainted a few years ago. The '67 model was perhaps the pinnacle of GTO styling, with a sleek look, voluptuous quarter panels and handsome stacked headlights, and the makeover does nothing to diminish any of that. Instead, it draws attention to the GTO's finer points, starting with good bodywork that looks straight and fits together rather well. It's certainly not a show car, so you shouldn't be afraid to get it dirty by driving it, but for folks who know GTOs, they'll see this one and nod approvingly when it's being used as intended. The simplicity of the design is accentuated by nice chrome and stainless trim, including nicely integrated bumpers, wire mesh grilles up front, and, of course, somewhat subtle GTO badges that let the shape speak for itself. After all, the GTO was always from the "speak softly and carry a big V8" school of thought. Add in a black vinyl top for a hint of formality and this becomes a car that can go with you just about anywhere.
With a black exterior, nothing works better inside than basic black vinyl buckets. Sure, you could do white or parchment or something like that, but if you want a no-nonsense performance look, black buckets in your GTO is always the right choice. The seat covers, carpets, and door panels are in fine condition, indicative of a restoration completed not too long ago, and with a center console and woodgrained dash, the GTO offers a dash of sophistication to go with its performance, as always. Round gauges appear to be original and give the dash a vaguely European look, framed by an original steering wheel that is only just now starting to show its age. A Hurst dual-gate shifter (fondly called the "His-N-Hers" shifter) allows for gated shifts much like today's manumatics, and makes the idea of an automatic transmission in a muscle car a lot more palatable. Options include factory A/C that's fully functional and a factory AM/FM head unit. The steering wheel is beautifully finished and with this GTO, you also get a correct trunk with reproduction mat and a full-sized spare that probably dates to when this car was in daily service.
Pontiac's bespoke V8s were always the weapons of choice in the performance wars and this GTO carries a correct YS-coded 400 cubic inch V8 with a Holley carburetor, so performance issues are non-existent. Chrome valve covers and air cleaner lend a factory look while corporate turquoise engine enamel makes it stand out in the all-black engine bay. It's nicely finished and has been recently tuned, and with power steering and brakes and a fresh dual exhaust system that barks out the most amazing V8 burble, it definitely feels like a GTO from behind the wheel. A rugged TH400 3-speed automatic transmission never hesitates when all that torque is churning through it and a 10-bolt rear end plant the power without a whimper. Factory Rally II wheels and proper F70-14 redline tires ensure that the car looks and sits right.
This is a driver-grade Goat and there's no shame in that. Still beautiful to look at and a blast to drive, it's one of the most affordable early GTOs we've featured but no less appealing than its more expensive siblings. Call today!
