1967 GTO Parking Lot
Biggest GTO image collection anywhere!
Red 1967 GTO sport coupe owned by Chris Romero from Raymore, Missouri. He bought this one on eBay. It had just gotten painted and it needed an interior and chrome. The body was wavy, so Chris is redoing it.|
CLICK-> Here's some pictures of Chris's 67 GTO right after he got it.
CLICK-> Rear view of Chris's 1967 GTO before re-paint. For best results, remove some of the chrome stuff from the body. Here, they have removed the rear bumper and repainted the chassis black.
CLICK-> So... The bright corvette red paint gets sanded down.
CLICK-> Sanding reveals the high spots. A boom box has landed on the roof.
CLICK-> Here's the seats for Chris's 1967 GTO.
CLICK-> Red 1967 GTO back from painting. Got the GTO emblem on! This must be Chris's daughter.
CLICK-> Here are some more pictures that Chris just sent in. Looks like he's got it painted and is starting assembly. So THAT'S how you accidentally lock your keys in the trunk! (If you had a trunk lid)
CLICK-> Chris has some of the rear chrome installed. Looking good! Still needs some glass.
CLICK-> Here's a shot of the newly installed gas tank on Chris's red 1967 GTO.
CLICK-> Chris has some of the front clip installed. Looks like Chris collects model cars too. One thing that some owners frequently replace on their cars is the core support. Luckily, this part is available as a new reproduction part. I heard from a guy named Bob that successfully installed one. He says this; "I purchased a reproduction core support made by Dynacorn earlier this year for my non-air, '67 GTO hardtop. The first thing that I noticed is that it seemed a few pounds lighter than the original. But after that, everything seem to fit really well. There are some threaded nuts welded at various locations on the part that lined up correctly to accept outer fenders, inner fenders, and the grillle supports. This includes the "tee" shaped fascia sheetmetal that the grilles mount into. There were no nuts welded onto the piece to accept the hood bumpers. I just took my old ones and double nutted them to stay in place. After first painting the whole assembly underhood black and installing it, one would never know that it was a repro. Thumbs up!"
CLICK-> The back seat area in Chris's 1967 GTO restoration. There are some tools of the trade. Tow straps and Vise-Grips.
CLICK-> Signet Gold 1967 GTO hardtop owned by Chad Haas from Portland, Oregon. Chad commented, "I thought everyone might enjoy some pictures of a restored gas station located on Lombard Avenue in Portland, Oregon. It was formerly a Signet Gas station and has been restored back to its original beauty, including porcelain enameled signs, neon and an octagonal tower sign that is simply striking. That's my 1967 Royal Bobcat GTO parked alongside.
After a 2000 hour restoration, the car was built factory correct exactly as I would have ordered it from Royal Pontiac: Hurst Wheels, Red Fender Liners (not shown in these pics), a extremely rare Rally Gauge Cluster (one of half a dozen documented featuring Rally Gauges, Clock and a Hood Tach), Air Conditioning, Wood Wheel with Tilt Column, Power Windows, Power Antenna, Console Mounted Vacuum Gauge, PS, PB (aluminum disc), Remote Mirror, Deluxe Seat Belts, Soft-Ray tinted glass and Firestone Red line tires.
The signs in these photographs showcase what I'm up to in my 'spare time'. I pursue rare examples of antique advertising and have set about to recover and preserve this past by manufacturing very limited edition porcelain enamel signs, neon clocks and porcelain neon signs that have been copied from rare originals."
