The engines powering the GTO were upgraded from 389 cubic inches (6.4 liters) to 400 cubic inches (6.6 liters), this time with three power configurations ranging in between 265 and 360 horsepower.

With a little over 81,700 units sold this year, the 1967 GTO was less successful than its predecessor, with shipments therefore declining from nearly 97,000 cars in 1966. But this doesn’t necessarily mean the 1967 GTO was no longer a head-turner, and the example that we have here is just the living proof in this regard.

This GTO is pretty much the closest you can get to the model that was built by Pontiac 54 years ago, as everything outside, inside, and under the hood is still fully original. The car spent more than four decades in a storage unit after the owner parked it and left to serve the country, so it goes without saying the Pontiac doesn’t necessarily come in a mint condition.

But it’s not a rust bucket either, and at a quick inspection based on the photos shared by eBay seller ocjayhawk-1, the car looks to be in a condition allowing for a pretty easy restoration. Except for the engine, that is, as the V8 under the hood is seized after all these years in storage. The engine is the aforementioned 400 with 360 horsepower, so this GTO came with the most powerful V8 available for the model year 1967.
