1967 Pontiac GTO For Restoring

In the wonderful world of internet car listing, vagueness is just accepted as normal. Even if it isn’t, sometimes details are just fantasy, so it is hard to truly know what is going on. That seems to be the case with this 1967 Pontiac GTO located in Bowdoin, Maine for the price of $6,500. Thank you AMXBrian for the tip. You can view more here on Craigslist.

According to the listing, the engine in the picture is supposed to be a high output 400 V8 that is connected to a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission. It is claimed to run and also be numbers matching. The listing also states that the car has official Pontiac Historic Services documentation. There are a few photos of paperwork to apparently prove that. Some of it is hard to read and is pretty fuzzy.

There are not a whole lot of photos of this car. However, there is a good photo of the interior or lack of interior. One photo does seem to show some green seats squished between a wall and other garage clutter. There is no interior but the dashboard in the car. The floorboards are in decent shape. Debilitating rust does not seem to be a major issue for this car. Although, it does say that rear quarter panels and a trunk floor should be in order.

The car will need to be completely restored, but based on the few photos available, it looks to be a good candidate for restoration. It would really come down to price and how much time, money, and effort do you want to put into a project. The collector car hobby always ebbs and flows, so the time to snatch certain cars up is always the right time for someone. Is the time right for you?

    Solid floors, anyway, even if it does need a trunk pan and quarter bottoms.
    If the car checks out, this seems to be priced to buy for someone looking forward to some quality project time. Compared to some junk/non-running rust buckets we have seen lately, there is light at the end of this restoration tunnel.

    I always liked the grille with the wavy crossed wires, and the driving lights attached to them. ’67 is probably my favorite year.
    No power-robbing AC, just a V8 with a 4-barrel and a 4-speed. Simple. Great, even.

    I bought one just like it in 1974 for $700.00. It was only 7 years old but, was well worn already. On the 9 mile trip home it ran out of gas twice! I figure it was getting about a half mile to a gallon. It took me a few days of tinkering and I had it up to between 8 and 10 MPG. Mine was triple black and it turned out to be a pretty good car for a 16 YO.

    Doesn’t seem like a bad deal, though the ’67 model year comes in at #4 on my favorite GTO’s.

    I have a fellow car guy who owns a GTO & runs with his GTO buddies. He claims the market for these classics is getting soft as the leading edge of the baby boomers are getting too old to drive.
