1967 Pontiac GTO Convertible

1967 Pontiac GTO Convertible

Description

 

From the Bryant Collection is another fine muscle car.  The current owner purchased the vehicle over a decade ago and it has undergone and extensive multiyear frame off restoration process leaving no bolt untouched.

The car is shown in a tasteful deep blue metallic tri-coat system consisting of House of Color topped off by Dupont clearcoat. The depth and quality of the paint is exceptional and fully understood when you look at the quality of the canvas on which its shot.  There are no scuffs, runs, or touchups on the car with only one small chip (pictured) on a fender.

The bodywork, performed in Winterport, Maine, shows very good fit and finish. Gaps are consistent between panels and provide a testament to the quality of the restoration. Bodywork was completed with all new metal panels and repairs as the owner declared, “I don’t build bondo buggies”.  Work included new floors, trunk,  firewall and other minor components.  The owner could not recall if the quarter panels has been replaced but could not rule it out. As the pictures indicate, a new fuel cell as was also installed.

 

Rest assured that this car is not all show, no go with the owner opting for a 400sb built by renowned race shop Thayer’s Race Engines of Hermon, Maine. The stout engine, with a mild street cam is adorned by 3-deuces which were properly balanced and synchronized to make for a very smooth yet powerful package.  The engine is mated to a 4-speed Munchie Rock Crusher transmission for a classic muscle car combination. Mechanically the car has thoroughly disassembled and all bushings, heim joints and mounts were replaced. All pumps a pulleys, steering components were also serviced, repaired, or replaced.

 

The interior wears new seat covers and panels. The rugs and pads have all been redone as well.  All badges and handles have been replaced and all controls are in fine cosmetic and functional order. Due to sitting in storage for several years, there are spots of slight mildewing on some of the surfaces which were not properly cleaned in a rush to prepare for picture day.  These instances were minor and should clean with a proper product being applied. The white top was replaced with no creases or tears and the rear vinyl widow is in as new condition.  The top does show a few spots mildew from nearly ten years of light use.  The photographer indicated that the deficiency was minor and that in his opinion, it could be easily brought back to proper condition with the correct cleaning product.

This GTO is a fine example of a well performed restoration that brought the vehicle to a very high level.  Though it was performed several years ago, the car has aged well.  Its starts, runs, and drives wonderfully and has only been exercised 200 miles since completion.  Good Luck!
