Description for Pontiac GTO 1967

Thank you for looking at my 1967 PHS documented real red/red GTO. It is a multi-award winning car taking trophies ranging from best paint to best of show. Please take your time reading the extensive description of the car and looking at the photos. If at the end you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will include with the buy it now price, an 18 foot open car trailer.

GTOs continue to be blue chips investments with many collectors considering the 1967 model year a high mark. This car is a fantastic example. It is a good honest car representing an era where the fun factor was very high and cars were exciting to drive. It is definitely a muscle car with lots of power and incredible amounts of torque.

I am the fourth owner of this GTO. The car was a barn find by the 3rd owner who attempted to keep it as original as possible. It has approximately 17,800 miles and continues to have its original sheet metal, hood, trunk, floors, trunk, bumpers, glass, most of the trim, interior pieces and a lot of original paint. I am unsure if the mileage is accurate but based on the originality when I purchased it, I can attest it is definitely a low mileage GTO.

The car was originally delivered to Peter Epsteen Pontiac, 7501 Lincoln Ave, Skokie, IL (Zone 10, Dealer 163) in 1967.

The car is an original red interior, Regimental red exterior with black vinyl top car. It began life with a 400 cubic inch V8 with a Turbo Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission. Original options included power steering, power brakes, pushbutton radio with manual antenna, custom seat belts, walnut steering wheel and center console.

The original owner purchased the car in Illinois and likely purchased the car for racing. I am unsure exactly when, but sometime during ownership, the original motor was replaced with a 1968 428 cubic inch engine and a 4 speed transmission with Hurst Shifter. Headers, intake and carb were installed. Hood pins were also added as was a radiator overflow bottle.

The 2nd owner, from Minnesota, purchased the car but after minimal use, it was parked and left unused for 21 years. Google maps show a detached garage and a barn on the property. I cannot say for sure it was a “barn find” but there is a chance the car was stored in the barn.

The 3rd owner, from Ohio, located the car.The car was great shape for having been not driven for 21 years. It however required replacement of the hoses, electrical system and rubber on the car. Paint work was also done in the engine bay. Miscellaneous interior pieces were replaced and new GTO emblems and rocker panel trim was installed. The shifter ball was missing but the car had the walnut shift knob in a box of parts with it. The car was bought with headers, Edelbrock Intake and Edelbrock Carburetion. He replaced the carburetor with Demon Carburetion. The car was enjoyed until his health made driving difficult.

I am the 4th owner. I met the 3rd owner who spends the winters here in Florida. He is a Vietnam vet who after having spent his time in the service jumping out of helicopters, required several surgeries and continues to have worsening neck and back problems.Unfortunately thismade driving more difficult. He truly loved the car and hated to get rid of it but his health prevented him from continuing to enjoy the GTO.

Although the car was extremely original, time took its toll on some of the paint and interior. Body work was performed in August 2012. Extensive research was done to find a paint shop to duplicate the paint as close to original as possible including both authentic orange peel and paint thickness. The paint was in decent condition and only sections were repainted. Attempts were made to keep as much original paint as possible repainting what was necessary and blending seamlessly. It was not an inexpensive paint job. The paint job is so good that many cannot tell what is original and what was repainted. It has been polished to look amazing. The pin stripes location and thickness were measured and duplicated exactly. There was some rust in the left quarter and during prep/paint, a small amount of body work was found from likely minor damage at an unknown time.The cowl was unable to be saved and was replaced with one from a 1967 GTO out of Arizona. The trunk floor had some surface rust. The rust was removed and sprayed with Rustoleum. The original splatter paint is still in the trunk. Many sections including the entire underneath of the trunk deck lid still has alltheoriginal paint. Some of the trim required replacement. The headlight bezels were replaced from the same 1967 GTO out of Arizona. I am unsure if the car came with a passenger mirror or was installed after but it needed replaced. The driver mirror is original. All of the window trim is original. The under hood soundproof is original. The original Rally II wheels were repainted and new center caps and trim rings installed. For the interior, seat covers were replaced in the front and rear including padding and springs. The carpet was replaced carpet as was the dash cover. Still has the original seat backs and bottoms, wood grain dash, center console and wheel. The rally clock never worked and after being rebuild twice continued to have issues. It was removed and replaced with a Summit tachometer (I no longer have the original rally clock). The vinyl top is in excellent condition. I have not replaced it nor did the 3rd owner. I am unsure if it is original but it is believed to be.

The transmission was also rebuilt in August 2012 (clutch, flywheel, pressure plate) as was the emergency brake. I have the receipts for everything which includes: Zoom high performance clutch (part # HP5552-1A), Summit racing Flywheel (part # SUM-700181) and ARP bolts.

September 2013 the engine was rebuilt (pistons, cam, rockers, rods, pistons, oil pump, plugs, fan and water pump). Again, I have receipts for everything. Modifications included: bore and hone 0.60, resize rods, valve job with guide liners, grind crankshaft and mag.

Parts used to rebuild:

Keith Black performance pistons (part # KB304-060)

Comp Cams Camshaft (part # K51-423-9); duration 276 int/282 exh, lift 0.502 int/0.510 exh

Trick Flow push rods (part # 21408650)

Comp Cams rocker arms (part # 1451-16)

Melling oil pump (part # M54F)

AC Delco Voltage Regulator, solid state, NOS (part # 1119519)

Griffin 4 core Radiator (part # 6-00062); flow tested to 34 gpm

HEI Distributor (part # 66953)

PermaCool accessory electric fan with control switch (part # PRM 19126)

FlowKooler water pump (part # 1649CI)

OEM style hose clamps

An electric fuel pump was added so now has 2 fuel pumps – original fuel pump and electric fuel pump

Kept the headers that were on the car, Edelbrock Intake and Demon Carburetion.

Repainted overflow radiator bottle (Summit).

October 2016 - new shocks and new brakes were installed.

This GTO has been displayed at the AutoGeek Detail Fest car show and even took best in class for 1965-1970 class at the AACA Vero Beach show (which was a true surprise as it was up against many amazing cars including Shelby Mustangs, a Yenko Camaro and Hemi cars). The car has been used locally for ads and photo shoots. It won awards in every show it was entered to the point that the car is now entered just to show and not be judged. I have truly loved this car and feel I have fully experienced all it has to offer. I was debating on finishing the restoration and replace all the remaining trim, remove the hood pins and replace the motor/transmission with a 1967 400 cubic inch V8 with a Turbo Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission in attempt to make it concours correct per GTOAA. However, I decided to move my collection in a different direction.

The 1967 GTO values continue to rise. The car is currently insured for $55,000. The NADA values are listed as:

The Haggarty valuation is:

This 1967 GTO is in excellent condition and as previously stated,a good honest car. It handles well, drives straight and the brakes stop the car perfectly. It represents an era where there wasn’t much in safety regulations and before smog regulations. Although cars today are much safer and much cleaner, they are not as exciting to drive. The new cars are better but not as much fun. This 1967 GTO has a very high fun factor. Driving it makes you feel good. When you pull up to a red light or to get gas, people always give thumbs up or take pictures with their phones. No matter what kind of day you may be having, driving this GTO will improve your day. It is definitely a muscle car and you feel powerful driving it. It has lots of power and lots and lots of torque. However, it is a 50 year old car. It may accelerate quickly and really throw you back in the seat,but itrelies on 50 year old technology to handle, turn and brake. It lacks many safety features on today’s cars. One must keep this in mind when enjoying it. Also, if you have never owned a classic muscle car, they are not like today’s muscle cars. After driving, the car may drip a little bit on the garage floor. It does not corner like modern cars, steer like modern cars or stop like modern cars but it will always put a smile on your face when driving.

That said, this is a 50 year old car. It can break. It does not come with any warranty. I had the car thoroughly looked over by my mechanic and the only thing that the car will eventually need from the new owner is the rear seal appears to be starting toslightly leak. No issues with driving.No issues with steering or brakes. Perfectly aligned and drives straight with one finger. Shifts perfectly through all 4 gears and into reverse. All lights work except occasionally the dome light which will sporadically not work and then willwork again. The trim is in great condition but for concours quality, window trim, glass, some interior pieces and exterior pieces should be replaced as they are 50 years old. I was told it adds authenticity and character to the car but some people prefer spotless perfection, especially when restoring to concours standards. The bumpers are in amazing condition. The previous owner painted the drums red. They could be painted back to black. He also added under hood lights along the firewall through the grommet. Makes the engine bay look amazing during shows but can easily be removed. The radio is aftermarket.The tachometer can be removed and the rally clock placed back (again, I no longer have the original rally clock). There is a small rust paint bubble in the left quarter. Approximately ¾”. Not really noticeable but wanted to make mention. The car is not a 100 point show car but is in amazing condition for its age.

Please look at all the pictures. There are a lot so please have patience while they load. If afterwardyou have any questions, please call or text me at 814-360-6116 or message me through EBay. I don’t know what is important to you but will do my best to answer questions to the best of my knowledge.
