“… this Pontiac is awesome beyond all space and time.” – Automobile magazine, June 2006
The Automobile magazine review above verified the Pontiac GTO is a legitimate muscle-car legend. Back in the day (January 1967), Motor Trend's road testers weighed in on the then-new '67 GTOs: “This test of the '67 GTO was one of the most comprehensive we've ever done. We had the opportunity to drive several different varieties, and in many different conditions. We ran quite a few mileage checks and averaged 13.5 mpg on the open highway with a 3.90:1 rear axle ratio, and 11.5 around town. The fit and finish on all the cars was the best we've seen on any Pontiac GTO, and we'd rate the drivability as excellent for enthusiasts as well as commuters. They're housebroken Tigers, but they can revert to the jungle whenever you give the word.” So, you really could have your cake and eat it, too.
Offered here is a 1967 Pontiac GTO hardtop in a metallic blue (reminiscent of “Elkhart Blue” on Corvettes) over black. The car underwent a frame-up restoration just four years ago, and shows 72,000 miles on the odometer, or just under 1,500 miles per-year on average.
Owing to the high quality of the recent restoration, the exterior finish on the car is exceptional—smooth, even, and uniformly glossy. “Showroom new” appearance is not an overstatement. In the same way, the front grille, chrome bumpers, dual-exhaust outlets, and body trim is all in excellent condition. Lighting lenses—on the vertical quad headlights and handsome rear-deck taillights (a re-design for 1967)—are clear and free of cracks or fading. Cabin glass is equally well-maintained. Period-correct Cragar “mag” wheels are mounted with blackwall tires. All factory emblems and badging—including “GTO” identification on the front, rear and both sides of the car--is properly located and in excellent condition.
Inside, the black vinyl upholstery and trim is in excellent condition, free of any obvious signs of damage; there are no rips or tears on the seat surfaces or the door trim. The vertically pleated treatment on the front bench seat (with center armrest) is matched across the rear bench seat. The black dashboard features the four round instrument pods facing the driver with three engine-monitoring gauges (SunPro® coolant temperature and oil pressure, and a Bosch® voltmeter) mounted below the dash in a period-correct fashion. The correct Pontiac-logo steering wheel is mounted; the 3-speed automatic transmission shifter is mounted on the steering column. (Motor Trend in 1967 on the 3-speed automatic: “Automatic transmission GTOs up until now haven't been known as 'stormers' but this is the year to change that. The secret is Turbo Hydra-Matic 3speed….”) A replacement AM/FM radio is mounted in the factory radio location. “GTO” badging is correctly located above the glovebox, and on both doors.
Under the hood, the 6.5-liter (400 cubic-inch) Pontiac V8 glistens in a tidy and very clean engine bay. Chrome valve covers and a chrome air-cleaner cover add a touch of flair that was common among owners of GTOs. All components, wiring, and engine-cooling hoses are properly located. The car's build tag remains undisturbed. Viewed from below, most metal surfaces have been treated with rust inhibitor. The full-length dual-exhaust system shows no signs of damage or abuse from too-aggressive driving styles. Front disc brakes remain mounted.
We expect and invite in-person inspection of this beautiful GTO. Indeed, the car begs for that sort of close-up look-see. We ask only that you call or email us for an appointment in advance so that we can devote our full attention to you during your visit. (Our showroom is not open to the public.) Meanwhile, the more than 155 high-definition photographs of the car and the short walk-around-and-startup video on the GarageKeptMotors site faithfully represent this '67 GTO's outstanding condition, but feel free to call or email with any questions.
The appeal of owning a legendary Pontiac GTO has only risen since General Motors eliminated its Pontiac division. For many of those who were coming of age during the muscle-car era, as well as many who wish they'd been part of that period of powerful American street cars, the GTO continues to be irresistible. This beautiful blue “Goat” is right now sending that magnetic power out across the internet to those very fans.
