1967 Pontiac GTO Convertible You have just stumbled across much more than your standard GTO. This classic is not only a desirable muscle car but is one of the nicest in the nation. The car was built by Chuck Woolery with Run Rite Classics who is known in the industry for his top level Pontiac restorations. Not only did he build the car but used it as his personal vehicle for years, bring home home some of the top awards including a Concourse Gold. The car is fully documented which can all be verified through the VIN, block casting numbers, etc. After the most recent rotisserie restoration the car was sold to the current owner who drove it less than 200 miles, strictly using it as a high level show car. It has been cared for extremely well in all of that time making its current condition just as pristine as when it was just completed. One look at the fit and finish of chrome, paint, trim, etc will tell you that. The body is laser straight and coated in a bright Tyrol Blue that looks beautiful in the sun. This is paired with a Black cloth convertible top that raises and lowers with ease. Nice subtle pinstriping runs the length of both sides with a small amount of free style work on the rear tail panel. The chrome and trim is immaculate from front to rear and all correctly mounted. You will find that not only is the correct GTO hood in place but is fitted with the correct hood tachometer. The car sits on original style wheels which are then wrapped with red line tires which are the perfect combo for a muscle car like this. Getting the car moving is the 400V8 factory motor that is fitted with a 3 deuce carburetor set up. Just as with the chrome on the exterior, the chrome work under the hood has a beautiful finish. Looking the car over there is no doubting why it has won so many top level awards. Mated to the engine is a 4 speed manual transmission that shifts very well. Power brakes are in place and this classic is extremely comfortable to drive. The interior car is Black with wood accents just as it would be from the factory. Everything has that nostalgic stock appearance but is fresh with a new finish. The bucket seats are fitted with headrests and sit to each side of the original center console. The original woodgrain Pontiac steering wheel sits in front of the driver with the original style gauges mounted to the dash behind it. The trunk of the car utilizes the same Black as the interior and incorporates a custom Pontiac GTO emblem. Add this top of the line concourse winning GTO to your collection for $89,500.00!!
