I bought this 1967 Pontiac GTO convertible in 2013 and began refurbishment that year. Work included an engine overhaul with modifications and many suspension repairs and upgrades. The high performance 461ci V8 (1968 code 400ci) is equipped with Edelbrock aluminum cylinder heads (10.5:1) compression ratio (runs great on pump gas), roller rockers, roller cam and lifters, Eagle forged crank/pistons/rods and a custom Holley 4150 four-barrel carburetor. The carb had custom work performed to increase airflow by Chuck Nuytten in Rockwall, TX. This included porting/polishing and eliminating the choke. Custom head and intake porting/polishing was performed by Kim Barr Racing Garland, TX. The engine is dyno proven at 540 hp and 570 tq (documentation provided). Additional equipment includes an aluminum radiator, RobbMc fuel pump w/ upgraded ½ inch fuel line for the entire system, a replacement stainless steel fuel tank, and a custom exhaust system with Doug’s stainless steel headers and Pypes mufflers. The carburetor was refreshed and adjusted in January 2023.
Complete suspension including all new body, suspension, and steering bushings, springs and shocks. Suspension improvements include: boxed and adjustable rear control arms, improved sway bars front/rear, Lee Power Steering close ratio gear box (tight, modern car-like turning radius), 1’ drop front springs, rear adjustable air bags, and upgraded Bilstein shock absorbers. The car was upgraded with front disc brakes in 2013 along with new brake lines for the whole car. In 2021 the original 3 spd automatic drivetrain was upgraded with the latest Tremec TKX 5 speed manual transmission which brings the 75 mph rpms to 2400 (up to 13 mpg!). Equipment includes an Eaton 3.55:1 limited slip rear differential, 15” Cragar wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires size 215/65. In 2014 there was a total replacement of the factory wiring harness headlights to tail lights. Convertible top motor and hydraulics refurbished in 2014.
The OEM reproduction wood-rimmed steering wheel frames a set of beautifully refurbished original factory Rally gauges (restoration performed by Pete Serio/Precision Pontiac/Columbus OH), 120-mph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer, and readouts for fuel level, voltage, oil pressure, and coolant temperature. The odometer shows 69k miles, and total mileage is unknown.
This GTO convertible is now offered with complete records since 2013, PHS documentation, spare parts, a set of 15” Rally II wheels with trim rings, and a clean Texas title.
