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), a convertible and the hardtop coupe that you see here. This Regimental Red (r-code) is numbers matching and beautifully well-preserved.
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 4-barrel carburetor and the total output was 335 horsepower when paired with a Turbo Hydra-matic (a $226 option).
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 an AM push-button radio ($61) and power steering ($95).
The ’67 GTO has a wheelbase of 115″ with an overall length of 206.6″. Width is 74.4″.
Pontiac built 65,176 GTO 2-door hardtops for the 1967 model year with a base price of $2,935. As the original receipt still exists we know that this particular car cost a total of $2,714.05 with all options, sales tax and delivery charges etc – this price included a trade-in of a 1962 Pontiac Catalina.
