The GTO was now available with 335 horsepower, but customers could also order the HO engine that developed 360 horsepower.
The hardtop remained the most popular option for this model year, with over 65,000 units produced in this body style. The convertible was the runner-up with approximately 9,500 units, while the sports coupe was third with a little over 7,000 units.
A 1967 Pontiac GTO landed on Craigslist a few days ago, trying to find a new home after sitting in a garage for several years.
The many years of sitting have turned this GTO into a challenging project, but the bigger problem is probably the lack of information. The body looks good, with minor surface rust, but it exhibits accident damage on the passenger side. The owner didn't share more specifics, and you'll have to closely inspect that part to determine how much work it'll need.
The rust and the trunk only come with surface rust, and the owner explains that the interior is in great condition. The photos confirm the good shape, but it's unclear if the car has ever been overhauled or if the previous owners meticulously cared for it. The good news is that rust isn't a major concern, as the metal only exhibits surface damage without signs of rot.
The engine under the hood is as mysterious as possible, and the owner again forgot (or didn't want) to share more information. They claim the engine "needs to be overhauled," but we're not getting other details, so it's unclear if it's locked up or turns over by hand. The best way to figure out all the essential tidbits is to travel to Boise, Idaho, and see the GTO in person. A good mechanic would only need a few minutes to decrypt the engine's condition and, if possible, put the car on a lift to inspect the undersides.
The selling price is surprising for an all-original GTO, as the owner wants only $3,000 for the car. The price expectation is fair if the engine is already wrecked, and that's why more details are essential to determine the car's condition and market value. You'll need a trailer to take it home, but overall, the GTO could be either an easy project requiring only minor fixes to return to the road or a massive project urgently needing major repairs to even become road-worthy.
