1967 Pontiac GTO

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.

  1. No GTO had a 2 barrel carb.
    It reads like a amateur wrote this article……you could get a four-speed transmission in any of them.. or a automatic transmission

    • Hi there – thanks for taking the time to comment. I am not sure how that crept in there – it was a typo that has now been corrected. I am not sure what you are saying about the 4-speed transmission. We just state that this car came with a Turbo Hydra-matic and the cost of that option.

      Interestingly there was actually a 2-barrel (255 hp) option – here’s the Pontiac brochure from the time.
