THE PONTIAC GTO

For many enthusiasts the GTO remains the only 'Muscle Car' that matters. The originator of the concept, the GTO was a special car at a special time and became an instant legend. All GTOs are collectors' items but none more so than the original, and at the time there were hardly enough to go around. Borrowed from the competition version of Ferrari's famous 250-series sports car, the initials stand for 'Gran Turismo Omologato' – homologated Grand Touring. The GTO started out as a high performance options package for the 'intermediate' sized Pontiac Tempest Le Mans and came in sports coupe, hardtop coupe and convertible variants distinguished by those all important 'GTO' badges. At the GTO's heart was a 389ci (6.4-liter) V8 engine available in two states of tune: standard 325bhp with a single, four-barrel carburetor or optional 348bhp equipped with the Tri-Power set-up of three, twin-choke instruments. Transmission options included the (stock) heavy-duty three-speed manual gearbox, three-speed Hydra-Matic auto and Muncie close-ratio manual four-speeder with Hurst shifter, while there was a lengthy list of special performance-enhancing GTO accessories. Big-car power in a medium sized package made for exhilarating performance, Car & Driver magazine achieving a 0-60mph time of 4.6 seconds and the standing quarter-mile in 13.1s/115.0mph with a 348bhp, manual transmission example, figures that put many a more exalted - and more expensive - purpose-built sports car to shame.

For 1967, the standard V8 displaced 400ci (6,557cc) and produced 335bhp while a less powerful 'economy' engine and more powerful 428ci (7.0-liter) unit were options.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

In addition to being nicely presented in Cameo Ivory the 1967 Pontiac GTO Two-Door convertible offered here is equipped with a 4-Speed manual, 3.55 rear end, power steering, pushbutton radio and air-conditioning according to the vehicle's build sheet. The interior is trimmed in Red vinyl and the GTO rides on deluxe wheel discs wrapped in white wide oval tires. Today, the car presents in generally good condition with the interior showing little in the way of wear with no tears to be found on the bucket seats. Under the hood looks equally tidy, however the age of the car has allowed for some minor surface corrosion to appear on bits of the hardware. Regardless, this drop-top piece of American muscle is not lacking in two major categories: style and horsepower. Accompanying the vehicle are a set of original books. In 1967 Pontiac called the GTO "The Great One" and it is still great today, especially with a healthy 400 engine and a 4-speed. A superb collector car for lazy Sunday cruising, or to enter on one of the many rallies this car is eligible for (e.g. the Texas or Copperstate 1000) this GTO deserves serious consideration.
