1967 Pontiac GTO Convertible

How often do you see a Verdoro Green '67 GTO? Not very often? It's hardly surprising as only 20 GTOs were painted in it - and only by special order.

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 the Turbo Hydra-matic that this car is equipped with (a $226 option).
