This GTO is one you could enjoy driving every day. It's every bit the beastly muscle car you want, but you won't feel guilty driving it regularly. The '67 model year is known even among GTO aficionados as the best-looking of the run, and this one is no exception.
Start with those, round headlamps stacked vertically at the far ends of the nose: 1967 was the last year for that feature, and future cars would have a more conventional horizontal headlamp setup. Those headlamps bookend the split, mesh-patterned grille with an inset GTO badge. The natural crease at the nose leads up to the hood scoop and down to the large, chrome wraparound bumper. The chrome treatment continues in a wide strip all the way down the sides and to the back, with true dual exhaust pipes exiting just below the chrome rear bumper. Eight narrow horizontal taillights are another feature you'll only find on a GTO. The handsome factory Rally II wheels look great, and BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires with raised white letters are always a good-looking choice for a muscle car.
This car's blue paint is well done and in very good condition. It has good shine and deep color, with only a few small signs of use because you are going to want to drive this one. If you look across all that bodywork and into the windows, you'll notice a gold interior that beautifully complements the dark blue paint, providing a visual accent through the glass and inviting you to slip into those vinyl-clad bucket seats.
We believe the seats have been reupholstered in their factory gold color, and it appears to be a quality job. The rest of the interior appears to have aged well: The wood grain appliques are still present and still sticking, the padded dashboard is not cracked or sun-faded. Though the interior does show wear here and there, but is in very good condition overall. Adding to the driving excitement, a Hurst dual-gate “His and Hers” shifter for this TH-400 automatic lets you select the gears manually by sliding the shifter into a secondary gate.
Give that key a twist - it's mounted on the dashboard, next to the AM radio - and listen to 400 cubic inches rumbling to life. It's all engine under the hood: this car appears to have a period correct YS block and runs great. An upgraded Holley carburetor lives under the original louvered air cleaner. Under the hood is a clean place to be. The engine wears a sharp coat of Pontiac Turquoise paint and clean, chrome valve covers that match the air cleaner.
The Pontiac GTO, the most famous of muscle cars, will inspire guilt in the eyes of your friends and colleagues. This particular example is not only as beautiful as they come, but it's affordable enough that you won't have to feel guilty any time you take it out for a spin. After all, if you're going to own something that turns as many heads as a GTO, you might as well get out on the road and actually get those heads turning.
