At a Glance;
1967 was the last year of the 1st generation GTO. This particular GTO has been meticulously kept track of by the Pontiac Historical Society. Included in the sale is a reprint of the original window sticker, build sheet and general Pontiac informational documents of the time including quotes from the Pontiac CEO. The Fresh 400, tri-power V8 is screaming to be driven and runs like a dream. This car could be reliably driven all year long. Inside, is an updated radio that looks all original. This radio includes an AUX plug in, XM ready, as well as AM/FM channels. The interior features all new upholstery, carpet and dash. It is an absolute joy to sit in with the premium parchment upholstery and an even smoother ride! Everything works as well as it did when someone drove it off the lot new in 1967. A tri-power set up has been added to increase torque and power, as well as to give it that vintage Pontiac performance look. This car is special because it includes all original sheet metal and floor pans. There is not a single spec of rust on this entire GTO! The original owner took good care of this Pontiac as the original sheet metal only needed minor body work to be repainted to beautiful gloss burgundy.
The first generation GTO was a muscle car of the 1960s and 1970s era. Although there were earlier muscle cars, the Pontiac GTO is considered by some to have started the trend with all four domestic automakers offering a variety of competing models.
The GTO underwent a few styling changes in 1967. The louver-covered tail lights were replaced with eight tail lights, four on each side. Rally II wheels with colored lug nuts were also available in 1967. The GTO emblems located on the rear part of the fenders were moved to the chrome rocker panels. Also the grill was changed from a purely split grill, to one that shared some chrome.
The GTO also saw several mechanical changes in 1967. The Tri-Power carburetion system was replaced with a single 4-barrel Rochester Quadrajet carburetor. The 389 engine received a larger cylinder bore 4.12 inches (104.6 millimetres) for a total displacement of 400 cubic inches (6.6 litres) V8. The 400 cubic inch engine was available in three models: economy, standard, and high output. The economy engine used a two-barrel carburetor rather than the Rochester Quadrajet and produced 265 hp at 4400 rpm, and 397 lbft at 3400 rpm. The standard engine produced 335 hp at 5000 rpm, and the highest torque of the three engines at 441 lbft at 3400 rpm. The high output engine produced the most power for that year at 360 hp @ 5100 rpm, and a maximum torque of 438 lbft @ 3600 rpm. Emission controls were fitted in GTOs sold in California.
The 1967 model year required new safety equipment. A new energy-absorbing steering column was accompanied by an energy-absorbing steering wheel, padded instrument panel, non-protruding control knobs, and four-way emergency flashers. A shoulder belt option was also featured, and the brake master cylinder was now a dual reservoir unit with a backup hydraulic circuit. The two-speed automatic transmission was also replaced with a three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic TH-400. The TH-400 was equipped with a Hurst Performance dual-gate shifter, called a "his/hers" shifter, that permitted either automatic shifting in "drive" or manual selection through the gears. Front disc brakes were also an option in 1967.
