REAL-DEAL CODE 42 GTO, STRONG 400 V8, 4-SPEED, COLLECTOR-OWNED, SLICK RESTO!!
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 red hardtop has been nicely restored and offers several upgrades that earn it a spot on most enthusiasts' short list of cars to own before they die.
Repainted in code R Regimental Red, it's a big improvement in visibility over the original code G Signet Gold. The finish was rendered in two-stage urethane, which contrasts nicely with the correct black vinyl roof, and the result is an unusual and super clean Goat that gets a lot of attention wherever it goes. But that high-visibility paint doesn't mean this one didn't get restored right. Quite the opposite, in fact. With a high-contrast color, it's the detail and the quality that make it stand out, from the laser-straight quarter panels, to the panel gaps, to the restored trim and badges, this car is all about getting the little stuff 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. It's not perfect, showing a few signs of age and wear, but a trailer queen wouldn't be nearly this much fun.
The black interior is an excellent choice when contrasting with the red exterior. According to the cowl tag, this is an original bucket seat/console car although it was originally gold to match the paint. Both the carpets and dash pad are almost like new and the door panels are excellent, and the seats are comfortable for long cruises. Cool options include a console with 4-speed shifter, a wood-rimmed wheel, and an unusual AM/FM radio that's fully operational. The woodgrain dash appliques are in good condition with no peeling or fading (they are, after all, just decals), and a pair of auxiliary gauges under the dash monitor oil pressure and temperature. The trunk is neat and simple, with a correct mat, full-sized spare, and a jack assembly.
The engine is a correct 400 cubic inch V8 which looks pretty much as the factory built it, right down to the traditional GTO chrome air cleaner. Detailed with Pontiac Turquoise paint on the block and chrome valve covers, it keeps a low profile that will satisfy purists. It was rebuilt in 2002 and has a few hidden upgrades including an Edelbrock carburetor and intake manifold, HEI ignition, and a big aluminum radiator. Interestingly enough, it did not come with power steering or brakes, suggesting that this car was built for combat when it was new, but it remains easy to drive and it's plenty fast. The great-sounding engine feeds a bulletproof 4-speed manual gearbox and 12-bolt rear differential. The suspension has that supple, buttoned-down feeling that Pontiac fans love and the newer dual exhaust system rumbles and purrs like it should but never gets annoying. Chrome Torque Thrust wheels always look great, and it sits on staggered 215/65/15 front and 235/60/15 rear white-letter radials.
Collector-owned, and restored with expert care, this is a great-driving real-deal GTO at a very reasonable price. Call today!
