1967 Pontiac GTO 400 - - Collector Car For Sale (Click Here)

Description:
GTO fans, this is a GREAT example of the most popular year for Pontiac's original muscle car! Cool turquoise inside and out, PHS documented, rotisseried and frame off restored and fully sorted beautifully this is an awesome cruiser and a whale of a collectable!

Here's the data tag:

10D 412
ST 67 24217 BAL 1788 BODY
TR 220 KK PAINT
C 212094
10D=October, fourth week
412=Daily sequence number (412th car built that day)
ST 67 24217=1967 model year, Pontiac Motor Division, GTO, two door hardtop
BAL=Baltimore plant
1788=Consecutive body number
TR 220=Turquoise bucket seat interior
KK=Gulf Turquoise monotone paint
C=Console
212094=Internal body number

Options on the car according to the PHS papers are:
342 AM radio with manual antenna
394 Mirror, left side remote
472 Center console
532 Soft-Ray tinted windshield
71/72 MC F70-14 Wide Oval redline tires
731 Safe-T-Track rear differential
75/76 WT 400 4bbl, 335hp
77/78 W4 Wide ratio 4 speed manual (M20)

Sticker price was $3390.68 plus a $66 destination charge to King Pontiac City in nearby Gaithersburg, Maryland. GM must have had a minimum freight charge as this car cost more than a dollar a mile to deliver!

Pull this car back apart to check out the very nice restoration work. The frame, properly detailed in its satin black, is dotted from one end to the other with inspection marks. Both front and rear suspensions are the same way—new components, properly detailed. There are hang tags everywhere, and it's obvious careful attention was paid to a restorer's manual with the markings! There's a new exhaust system from one end to the other. New hard lines, new brake parts, new steering parts...everything's new with fewer than 10 miles on them!

Open the well fitted doors and sit inside. There's new turquoise upholstery behind you, new carpeting under you and a new headliner and sun visor set over your head. Original, lightly toned gauges sit behind a new gauge bezel and wood grain set under a mint dash pad. Mint door panels are at your sides and a nice center console separates you from your passenger while a wood steering connects you to the car's movements. Original, 1967 only window cranks with the correct turquoise knobs are in place with new door handles and vent window levers. Some cars just feel right when you're behind the wheel—this is one of them!

Pop the hood and find the very nicely detailed NUMBERS MATCHING WT code 400ci engine. The chrome under here from the valve covers, the oil cap and the air cleaner is from Ames Performance and really shines things up. Pontiac engine bays of this era really aren't anything to write home about, so cleanliness and condition are of prime importance. Satin black covers the wheel wells, core support and firewall just as it should and are free of superfluous knickknacks or add ons. Marks are on the firewall for the exterior color and interior type as well as inspection marks and heater box types. It's all clean and it all works great!

Sight down the sides and see some really straight bodywork. Gulf Turquoise is an excellent color for a GTO—it's sporty and classy at the same time. Chrome parts shine as new from one bumper to the other and from the headlight bezels to the "Hurst equipped" emblem on the tail panel. Lenses are bright and clear and GE halogen headlights lead the way. Stainless moldings shine as new, and the glass is excellent for original pieces. A brand new set of 15” Rally II wheels, center caps and trim rings from Wheel Vintiques are complimented by brand new BFGoodrich 215/70/15 radial redlines. They belong on every GTO but they're especially beautiful against the turquoise paint!

All of that is nice, but what's really special is how the car responds to your commands. The steering and brake efforts are light, the motor moves out willingly and the transmission shifts without complaint or noise!

If you're in the market for a clean GTO in a rare color, with cool options, not to mention paperwork and a numbers matching mill, look no further. The restoration is fresh, '67 is THE year to grab for a GTO and the car's as much fun to drive as it is to show!
