1967 Pontiac GTO Medium Aubergine Metallic manual


Description


Envisioned as a show-and-go restomod that was built to drive with modern performance features, including an overdrive transmission, four-wheel disc brakes and more, this vintage muscle car is a contemporary take on a classic and authentic 242-code 1967 GTO.

Ready-to-drive condition, with nearly 500 horsepower from a punched-out Pontiac 428-cubic-inch engine. “Everything on this car works, from the backup lights to the air conditioning system. It also rolls on modern 17-inch wheels that evoke the look of the classic Hurst mags, further strengthening this restomod Goat’s link between yesterday and today.


A complete frame-off restoration was performed on the GTO between 2012 and 2015. The foundation was a virtually rust-free California car that was purchased as a stalled project. During the restoration, minor rust was repaired under the rear window reveal molding and a bit near the taillights. All of the floors and the trunk panel are original and rust-free. After the body was smoothed out, it was painted Medium Aubergine Metallic, a Ford color (paint code M6486A), as a tribute to Pontiac's original 1967 Plum Mist color. The base coat/clear coat paint is BASF acrylic urethane and shines very well, with the seller not observing any swirl marks or scratches.

All of the exterior trim was refurbished or replaced with new parts, while the windshield was replaced during the restoration. All of the rest of the glass is original and in very good condition, with only a few minor scratches identified by the seller. Additionally, all of the seals were replaced with Soff Seal or Steele products; and all of the lighting was replaced, with some lamps replaced with LEDs — and the headlamps are wired to relays that increase voltage to them to enhance lighting output. The only noteworthy exterior blemish to be found is a small ding on the rear bumper.

The interior has been completly restored with all-new and refurbished original components. It has also been updated with a number of additional factory-style and modern convenience features and options, including a remote driver’s mirror, factory tilt steering column, Sport steering wheel, factory power radio antenna, a late-model interior rearview mirror with temperature and compass displays, an updated solid state AM/FM/aux radio with four complementing speakers, power door locks (with remote), Legendary Interiors Rally seats with upgraded side bolster support, Vintage Air AC (used with factory vents) and a re-flocked glove box. The door panels and seat covers are trimmed in Parchment vinyl and the interior A-pillars and the top of the doors were painted to match. All of the interior lighting and gauges work normally and there is virtually no sign of visible wear on the seats or carpet.



In true restomod fashion, this GTO’s engine has a classic look, but with some significant enhancements. In place of the original 400-cubic-inch V-8 engine is one based on a 1969 Pontiac 428, which has been overbored 0.040-inch and fitted with performance parts including an SD Performance “Stump Puller” roller camshaft, 1975 5C cylinder heads, a 1966 Tri-Power intake manifold and carburetors, and Ram Air exhaust manifolds blowing into a Pypes exhaust system that features QTP electric exhaust cut-outs. The compression ratio is approximately 9.0:1. The seller reports that, upon completion, the engine was dyno tested and produced 474 horsepower and 540 pound-feet of torque.

There are approximately 4,000 miles on the punched-out 428 and the owner reports a minor rear main seal leak. The engine is reported to start, idles and run without any problems. It is matched with a Borg-Warner T-45 five-speed manual transmission prepped by Keisler Engineering to support 600 lb.-ft. of torque. It sends torque to a Pontiac rear axle fitted with Positraction and 3.55 gears
