There is not much that can beat an eye-catching sixties muscle car and the ’67 GTO by Pontiac is no exception.
This is the Great One. The ultimate driving machine – or so the 1967 Pontiac brochure described the GTO that year. GTO was a model within the Tempest line-up. Having started off as just an option it became a model in its own right for 1966.
There were three body styles available: A sports coupe (that featured a b-pillar), the hardtop coupe and a convertible that you see here.
New for 1967 was a wire mesh grille and the taillights were changed to form eight rectangles (four on each side) replacing the louvre style from the previous year.
The GTO came with a the new 400 cubic inch V8 engine as standard. New for 1967, it replaced the 389 V8. It was fitted with a 2 barrel carburetor and the total output was 335 horsepower when paired with a Turbo Hydra-matic (a $226 option).
Note: while this car is a true 242 code GTO it is using a non-original YE code block from 1968.
The GTO came with bucket seats as standard and this car was ordered with a center console which would have cost an additional $68. Also ordered with the car when new was a AM / FM radio ($134), power steering ($95) and power brakes ($42).
The ’67 GTO has a wheelbase of 115″ with an overall length of 206.6″. Width is 74.4″.
Pontiac built 9,517 GTO convertibles for the 1967 model year with a base price of $3,165. As the original receipt still exists we know that this particular car cost a total of $3,974.10 with all options, sales tax and delivery charges etc.
