A beautifully restored real-deal 1967 Pontiac GTO is already going
to get your attention. But when we believe it still has its
original 400ci V8, and some great subtle upgrades, you'll see that
this is a distinct muscle car that's a standout in all the best
There are many reasons why you're going to want to drive this GTO, but one of the largest is how good the paint looks. This is a modern re-spray of the factory Champagne Gold. The clearcoat paint gives it a superior shine that draws extra attention to the first-gen GTO's Coke-bottle styling. Of course, everybody knew not to mess with the GTOs by '67, so Pontiac gave it bold touches like the vertical stacked headlights, mesh grille, big chrome bumpers, hood scoop, and narrow sporty taillights shared with the best Pontiacs on the road. As you can tell from the pictures, all of these features are standouts because they look as good as when this hardtop left the factory half a century ago. It's a true sign that there was a ton invested in the frame-off restoration five years ago, and this classic has been treated with respect ever since. But as original as this one might appear, keen eyes might notice that the iconic Rally II wheels are actually custom modern alloys. They are larger and wider to fill the wheel wells with a bit more aggression, without losing that classic feeling.
Those who like the gold exterior will be especially happy with the interior. Just like the outside, this has been expertly restored so you can park it at the car show with pride. That means the bucket seats, door panels, headliner, dash, and carpeting all have that precious metal finish that make this classic Pontiac look so premium. And speaking of premium, the wood paneling on the dash and center console, as well as the wood trim steering wheel, all add to the upper-class atmosphere. You even get an upgrade to a retrosound-style AM/FM stereo with digital tuner that still retails the original knob-style appearance. As much as this feels like a very premium cruising machine, you know this one is a true runner the moment you lay your hands on the His & Hers dual gate Hurst shifter.
Under the hood is an engine bay that could steal the show on its own. We believe this is the original motor to the car, and so it's great to see it received the right attention during its rebuild. The 400 cubic-inch V8 is painted in the correct bright shade of Pontiac turquoise, and it's surrounded with the right elements, including a bright air cleaner, shining valve covers, factory decals, and four-barrel carburetor. Just like the interior and exterior, there is a nice subtle upgrade that will make plenty of difference. A mild cam was added during restoration, and so now the big V8 fires up with even more great GTO growl out of the dual exhaust. Beyond just being powerful, this one is easy to drive wherever you want. The his/hers shifter is mated to a trusty TH400 three-speed (also believed to be original), so feel free to shift it yourself or let the Pontiac do it for you. This same versatility can be found in power steering and power brakes with discs up front.
It will be hard to find a better sorted '67 GTO. This one even comes with the owner's manual and restoration receipts. It's a cherished classic that has been subtly upgraded to make the best even better. That's why we know it won't wait long for you to come get it. Call now!!
