CLICK-> Red 1967 GTO convertible, right side view. ...and you thought only the girls in Sweden were good-looking!
CLICK-> Robert Deis has owned this Cameo Ivory 1967 GTO convertible for 25 years. What an interesting perspective.
CLICK-> Keith Waller now owns this Linden Green 1967 GTO hardtop. Keith explains, "i just got this 67 a week ago in Baltimore, Maryland - less than 10 miles away from where it was built. I live in Baltimore and the plant it was made in has been closed recently (Broening Highway Plant). It has the 400 with an Offenhauser intake manifold and Hurst shifter. It is in the shop getting prepped for teardown and restoration. As you can see, rust is everywhere and the rear has issues. Rust, rust, rust."
CLICK-> Front grille on Keith's 1967 GTO find.
CLICK-> Yep, it is a GTO. The VIN plate shows those important first four numbers for a GTO - 242.
CLICK-> Let's peek inside. Looks like most everything is there except the aftermarket steering wheel, top edge of the instrument panel, and radio.
CLICK-> Headliner and door seal is sagging.
CLICK-> Close-up of the Hurst Dual Gate shifter. Just like Keith said... Lots of rust. It will be interesting to see this car come back to life. Feel free to comment below if you have any tips or encouragement for Keith.
CLICK-> Keith found the original horn button in the trunk. This is not one of the worse ones I've seen. The lucite disc in the center is commonly scratched or cracked. They were subject to people pushing against them or getting damaged by the sun. Pontiac used this same part for the '68 steering wheels too.
CLICK-> Keith rips out the carpet pad to see the condition of the floor boards.
CLICK-> The floor boards have some pretty big holes in them.
CLICK-> The original shade of Linden Green can be seen around the door jamb. This paint hasn't seen the light of day since sprayed on the car back in 1967.
CLICK-> A wire brush exposes the extent of the holes in the trunk floor.
CLICK-> Gulf Turquoise 1967 GTO hardtop owned by Lupe Gomez, Jr. from San Antonio, Texas. Lupe tells us more, "I purchased my 1967 GTO from a person in New Jersey five years ago. It still had the original 'YS' engine, His/Hers transmission, and interior, and only 74,000 miles. I have done a frame on restoration in 2004. Then I entered a few local car shows and people loved the GTO especially going back with the original color. I entered the 2006 O'Reilly's Autorama car show in February. The car was in the 1946-1972 Altered Restored and won 'Best in Class'. What a great feeling to win."
