1967 Pontiac GTO Convertible

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.
