Pontiac GTO

For 1967, the GTO was little changed from the previous model year except for minor trim revisions and wide, bright, lower body-side moldings. After all, why mess with a good thing? A new standard 335 hp, 440 cu. in. V8 replaced the previous 389 unit. The hardtop coupe was the most popular with 65,176 sales.

Featuring a big-block V-8 engine and a body as small as Pontiac’s midsize LeMans model, the Pontiac GTO set a new standard for street power and soon gave birth to an entire new market segment, still known as "muscle" cars.

This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in June of 2010 at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center, San Diego, California.

360 hp, 400 cu. in. H.O. V8 engine, four-barrel carburetor, four-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 115".
