Classic Car Overview
The Pontiac GTO is considered by many the first true muscle car with the introduction of the GTO package on their LeMans and Tempest models in 1964. When other manufacturers were concentrating on their full size lines Pontiac saw the potential for dropping a big block engine into an intermediate frame and marketing it at a budget price. The 1967 model boasted eight taillights, GTO emblems on the rocker panels and the grill was changed as well. This particular example was optioned nicely with a Turbo-Hydromatic transmission, a push button radio, deluxe wheel discs, a center console, Wonder Touch power steering, a Soft Ray tinted windshield and air conditioning. It was restored in 2006 and just over 9,000 miles ago at which time it was changed from Montego Cream to Regimental Red. The original block was not available so it is now equipped with a 400ci V8 from a 1972 that was performance machined by Pfeiffer’s Engine Specialties and is now equipped with Ram Air III 428 ci cam and is estimated to put out well over 400 hp. It has been upgraded with an electronic ignition and an Edelbrock carb to feed her more efficiently and it sounds great ripping through its original exhaust manifolds and chambered exhaust. During the restoration the original transmission with a Hurst Dual Gate (His n Her) shifter was rebuilt as was the Safe-T-Track rear end with 2:92 gears. You will also appreciate the independent front suspension and front disc brakes which really make the car much more drivable. The interior is mostly original except for the fact that the front seats have been recovered, the carpet has been replaced and the aftermarket water, oil and volt gauges were added above the center console. The original a/c controls are present and work perfectly but the rest of the system was retrofitted by Vintage Air and blows ice cold. Everything else including the clock works properly. The push button AM radio was rebuilt and works perfectly as well. The Regimental Red paint shows incredibly and is really set off by the Cragar SS rims and tinted windows. If you have been looking for a nice 2 door post you know they are next to impossible to find so if you like what you see you better pick up the phone before it is too late!
