All Original #'s Matching! 400 Cu In. W/ Auto Trans & Dual Gate Shifter on 2040-cars
New Lenox, Illinois, United States
THIS CAR IS A SURVIVOR!!!
Extremely original numbers matching 1967 GTO Hardtop in Gulf Turquoise with Turquoise interior.
The car was ordered heater delete. It was built in Freemont, California and shipped to Hawaii. The correct dash blockoff plate has never been touched and the firewall cover is still in its place from the factory. This is an extremely rare option. I have never seen another 1967 GTO with heater delete.
Interior - is unmolested and is in excellent condition. The dash pad is perfect. The dash has its normal wear experienced during the last 47 years but is in excellent shape. I would like to stress that the interior has been virtually untouched since the car rolled off the assembly line. The headliner could use a little work but is not in need of replacement. The seat belts are clean and original in perfect working order. The steering wheel has the normal cracks seen in these types of cars. It still has the original am radio from the factory. The console shows signs of the veneer (sticker - which I have a replacement) peeling slightly due to age. The car has the optional Hurst Dual Gate controlling the original Turbo 400 transmission.
Paint - This car is very solid. I believe it has had one repaint during its lifetime. It has a few blemishes and bumps but nothing major in any way. There two small places where the paint has bubbled. I have owned the car 16 years and received it in this condition, if any corrosion were going to happen it would have happened by now. There are two places on the right front quarter panel where the paint is chipped. The car has never seen snow and rarely even rain, always been kept garaged and covered.
Chrome - Overall the chrome is in excellent shape. The bumpers show the perils of being a daily driver during part of its life.
Undercarriage - was undercoated from the factory and has not been touched. The frame and floors are rock solid with no rust. The gas tank is original, never being off the car. The car has new 2 1/2 inch exhaust with Flowmaster 40s. The car has headers, but included in the sale are the original cast iron exhaust manifolds. They can be seen in the pictures of the trunk. These were media blasted and painted in high heat grey. They were also extrude honed to clean up the air flow. I must stress they are original to the car.
Suspension - has been redone including new ball joints, shocks, springs and tires. The rear end is stock with a 3.90 gear set from the factory. The rear diff cover has never been off. The brakes were redone using stock components. They are four wheel drum and stop very well.
Engine - is as bone stock as they come. It is a 335 horse 400. The Quadrajet, intake, distributor, pulleys, and heads, are all original to the car. There are no underhood components missing from the factory install. This car is complete. I had the engine rebuilt 5000 miles ago by a professional rebuilder and it runs like factory. No issues here. The car starts, runs and idles like it was new. When the engine was rebuilt the heads were treated to a valve job including hardened valve seats for use with todayís lead free fuel. I have the original air cleaner and it will come with the car. It is in excellent condition as well. The radiator was reconditioned during this time. As you can see, the correct fan shroud is in place. There is nothing missing from this car. The original flywheel was replaced last year. It failed resulting in a half moon being clipped out of it by the starter due to age.
Transmission - is the correct and original Turbo 400 that came with the car. It was treated to a rebuild and a shift improver kit when the engine was rebuilt. It also has 5000 miles on it since being rebuilt. The shifts are crisp and solid.
The Body Tag decodes as follows:
17=2 door hardtop
220=interior code (turquoise)
K=lower paint (Gulf Turquoise Metallic)
K=same as above
01236=sequential unit number
Mileage - Since the engine was rebuilt, the engine and transmission have approximately 5000 miles on them. The new suspension components, exhaust, and tires have even less.
In conclusion, what we have here is a very original 1967 GTO. Driving it in this original condition is like a flashback to the 1960's. The new owner has the choice to restore it to concourse condition, or drive it across the country. It is that dependable. I must stress that this car has a rebuilt engine and transmission that run perfectly. It also has new tires, ball joints, springs, shocks, exhaust, and a rebuilt original radiator. This car is a driver and a great candidate for a complete restoration. It is missing nothing that it didnít roll off the assembly line with or in this case, without. That would be the heater delete. Good luck bidding!

Oprah kicked off her 19th season in dramatic fashion by giving all 276 members of the studio audience a free car.
Molly Vielweber's Pontiac G6 appears unremarkable at first glance. It wears forest green paint, rolls on five-spoke aluminum wheels, and it has a sizeable scrape in the driver's side door, the scar of a decade's worth of hard use. You wouldn't notice it parked at a big box store or cruising on the highway. Pontiac made hundreds of thousands of G6s in the 2000s, and a lot are still on the road. It's unremarkable in every way except for the front license plate, which reads, "Oprah 6."
General Motors has announced another set of recalls, covering some 2.42 million cars in the United States. For those keeping track, The General has now recalled over 15 million cars worldwide this year due to various issues.
Here's the breakdown for this most recent set of recalls:
1,339,355 - Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia models from the 2009 to 2014 model years; Saturn Outlook models from the 2009 to 2010 model years
Jim Sharp of Elkhorn, Wisconsin needs a red 1967 Pontiac GTO to make his dad's Father's Day, possibly his last one, something extra special.
Back in the '60s, Jim's dad, Ken, drove a cherry red 1967 GTO to California for a job. He met a girl, got married and decided his wife's 1965 Ford Mustang was more fuel efficient than the Goat and the GTO was sold. As the story almost always goes, Ken has had seller's regret ever since.
Jim always meant to find a 1967 GTO and, with his dad's help, restore it. But life got in the way, time slipped by and Ken was recently diagnosed with esophageal cancer and given about three months to live.
