This 1967 Pontiac GTO Is In Need Of A New Owner6
Prior to 1966, the Pontiac GTO was only an option package offered on the Pontiac Tempest LeMans. General Motors eventually looked to capitalize on the GTO’s strong brand recognition by introducing it as its own separate model for the 1966 model year, rolling it out alongside with the rest of the redesigned GM A-Body lineup.
GM then applied a number of small updates to the Pontiac GTO for the 1967 model year, including new eight-segment taillights and a chrome grille. Most importantly, however, the 389 cubic inch V8 engine received a slightly larger cylinder bore, growing the engine’s total displacement to 400 cubic inches. The 400 V8 made varying levels of power and torque depending on which version was ordered, though even the standard engine was rated at an estimated 335 horsepower and 441 pound-feet of torque.
One of these 1967 Pontiac GTOs with the 400 cubic inch V8 will soon head to auction at Russo and Steele’s upcoming Scottsdale 2020 sale. The car features an aftermarket four-barrel Edelbrock carburetor, though apart from this, the original 400 V8 remains stock. Power is fed through a three-speed automatic transmission, which is controlled via the “his/hers” shifter that came with the GTO that year. The car also features aftermarket Boyd Coddington Junkyard Dog wheels, a modern-day radio and power steering and brakes. The red vinyl interior appears in very good shape, suggesting it has probably been reupholstered/restored at some point.
Russo and Steele did not provide an estimate as to what this 1967 Pontiac GTO will sell for when it crosses the auction block in Arizona next month. Check out the listing at this link for additional information and photos before it goes to its lucky new owner in 2020.

The styling of the 1967 Pontiac GTO is still beautiful to this day. But is that dash green? If so, I wouldn’t want a green dash, red interior, and black body.
They don’t style cars like they used to, unfortunately. Maybe the tinted windshield gives the green look?
Time worn black can appear to have a greenish tint, especially if surrounded by plant life.
The green is probably from the glass tint, which was an option that year and I believe going forward.
Dashboard is definitely black follow the console up and look at the color variations with the amount of light its just a photo angle illusion just had one of these in my driveway getting a tune up and timing adjusted looked just like it but had the gold or tan interior
I’ve got a 69 GTO convertible, but like the 67 (esp the taillights and cross-hatch wire grill). Back in the 70s, we used to race on the straightway between the two rivers in St. Louis (before the St. Charles county sheriff ran us off), and a guy had a cherry red 67… except the front clip was primer grey – otherwise perfect (down to the grain in the black vinyl top). I asked if he bought it that way and he said “No… I got it from a little old lady then wrapped it around a telephone pole two weeks later”. These cars were fairly fast but didn’t stop or handle well… which is likely one reason they’ve become rare. BTW, I was running a stock 70 455 GTO hardtop back then and lost to a 340 Duster – good days and glad I survived (we’d wait until traffic was gone before taking off but things can happen.. had that car up to 132 mph).
