1967 Pontiac GTOHere is a nice Christmas present for yourself that you can be sporting around in by the Spring of 2016. Its a 1967 GTO hardtop. It is an original red car. It has had one repaint that was probably in the early 80's and is still shiny. The previous owner installed a vinyl top, hough it is not originally a vinyl top car. The top has been painted black but it needs work. This car is a good representation of what owners were doing to GTO's in the early 80's. You can see the custom mirrors, he blacked out tail panel, nd the 8 track stereo with speakers in the doors and package tray. The car also has air shocks that surprisingly still hold air. This car is a bit of a time capsule, ut not to 1967. More along the lines of 1982. If you liked the era of hair parted in the middle, nee high socks, P shorts on men, ainbow suspenders and movies like Xanadu, r Breakin etc you get the idea.
The car has just 81,964 original miles, as it was almost never driven by the previous owner during his entire ownership. It has a clean Florida title, ut we couldn't get DMV to indicate actual miles as the odometer is 5 digit only. It had been previously registered in North Carolina in 1981.
VIN 242177B115066 242 indicates real GTO, ot Lemans or Tempest. B indicates Baltimore plant
This car is all original matching numbers down to the carb. Original owners manual and protect-o-plate are in the glove box. If you wish to run the PHS on it, he VIN has been provided.
The motor is the 335 HP YS 400 with 670 heads, h400, afety Track rear ( I think 2.56 is what came on on auto cars with a/c). P.S., manual brakes, /c. Everything works including the aftermarket radio and equalizer. We couldn't get the 8track to play tapes however. (Maybe that is a good thing) We also could not get the ac to kick on and traced the problem to a bad relay. (** Update- We changed out the relay, nd that didn't help, o next effort will be to bypass blower switch). Lights all work, ncluding front and rear signals and brake lights, ash lights, ome lights, onsole light
Runs, rives, hifts and stops and is roadworthy, ut as with any vintage car, 'm not sure how long of a trip I'd be willing to take it on, s things are prone to breakage. We put a new muffler and patched the exhaust system, ut in my mind the pipes are too small at 1.25" Compression is really too high for todays gas, o if I were restoring, 'd consider dropping the compression. We noticed some smoking on the driver side bank. I suspect it is dried out valve seals, ut we didn't investigate further.*** Update- We ran the car on Thanksgiving and there was no smoking.
Car looks great at 20', ut deserves a restoration. Frame is perfect. Floors are good, ut passenger side floor has small hole. Car still has it's original carpet.
Car needs a complete trunk floor, nd at least one trunk floor support brace, ut does not need trunk drop offs. It will need lower quarter patches, fender patche and windshield base repair panel, long with some roof repair. Somewhere along its life, t suffered minor damage to the passenger side fender and that was apparently replaced with a donor from a Tempest or Lemans. Otherwise, he panels fit nicely and everything opens and closes as it should. I don't see anything that is missing from this car except the jack and spare and hold down, nd the carb diaphram and pull off linkage. As a result the buyer won't spend $ chasing hard to find parts.
In preparing this car to be roadworthy, e purchased and installed the following new parts- battery, pper radiator hose, uel pump, uel filter, ubber fuel lines, aster cylinder, heel cylinders, rear wheel hardware, rake shoes all around, nd 2 new tires. New plugs, wires, oints, otor and cap. Naturally we changed out all fluids.
I've tried to represent this car as accurately as I can. For more pictures follow this link: 67 GTO additional pictures
I'm happy to answer any questions you may have. The car is available for inspection and is for sale locally. I've set a modest reserve to protect our investment, ut in the event the reserve is not met, may negotiate with the high bidder.
Winner arranges their own transportation, r may drive the car home if that is their desire
