1967 Pontiac GTO Coupe
1967 Pontiac GTO Coupe
Born of the brainchild of John DeLorean, the initial concept was to upgrade the Tempest, morphing it into an early version of the muscle car, which was the up and coming trend in a niche market of buyers who were hungry to go fast. The name, which was DeLorean's idea, was inspired by the Ferrari 250 GTO, the successful race car. It is an Italian abbreviation for Gran Turismo Omologato ("grand tourer homologated"), which means officially certified for racing in the grand tourer class. But in reality, the Pontiac GTO was never really a certified Grand Tourer race car. Internally, it was initially called the "Grand Tempest Option", one of many automobiles in the Pontiac line up with a 'Grand' in it. Despite these things, the GTO is one of the fastest cars ever manufactured by Pontiac.
Wow is the first words out of your mouth when you take one look at this iconic Pontiac GTO. With just one factory color respray of the original blue exterior, this car appears as new. When driving the GTO you are immediately impressed at how true to the model this example is. It drives the same as the day it was when originally delivered in 1967.
Code 4217 denotes a 2-door hardtop coupe. F-F says it is Tyrol Blue, and it has been resprayed to match original color. Chrome and brite work is in very nice condition, and all badging is correct. Even the rocker trim presents excellent. Rally wheels are all around, and chrome tipped exhaust adds a menacing look to the back of this goat.
Factory all the way, from the black vinyl seats, to the faux veneer on the face of the dash, to the console, and down to the jet black carpeting, the interior appears as it did when it drove out of the showroom. A his and hers Hurst shifter is between the buckets. Air conditioning blows Ice Cold! Power steering, power brakes are added, and the steering wheel is definitely original.
According to the owner the car is a matching numbers GTO, however, the 3x2 carb and manifold set up were added at the selling dealer due to the fact it was no longer an option in 1967. Powered by the then new 400ci engine, horse power is rated at 360.
Upon viewing the car from atop, one would expect nothing less than a very clean view actually looking like it was polished. No rust here, just clean, dry surfaces.
This wonderful 1967 Pontiac GTO is truly remarkable in every way with all features fully operational, no smoke, original and unmolested mint condition interior as well as fully detailed engine and trunk compartments. This car drives so perfectly and effortlessly that it would be a shame to make it a garage queen, even though it presents itself as such.
