This 1967 Pontiac GTO convertible restomod is what a cool custom classic is all about. There's a hot looking red on the outside, and a cool A/C inside. But where this one is irresistibly unique is that it has a fuel-injected LS3 V8 and five-speed stick to make this an awesome modernized muscle drop-top.
A real-deal GTO convertible is already a rare sight, and so this one makes sure it's always going to be memorable. The trim tag tells us it was born Regimental Red, and it was even updated later in life to remain vibrant. We're not talking about a finish that's too fancy to enjoy, because after all, a restomod is all about being a fun driver. But this paint makes sure the gloss really shows off the classic curves of the profile. Competing with the paint for the shine is the glow from the bumpers, trim, and rockers. And this has all the best GTO pieces, including the hood scoop, badging, dual exhaust, and eight tail light rear panel that was exclusive to 1967.
If you like the look of the crisp white roof against the red exterior, then you'll love powering it down to show off the style of the creamy parchment white upholstery inside. The whole interior is both fresh and thoughtfully assembled. For example, the deep red carpet is a nice coordinating piece with the exterior to unite the color theme when the top is down. There will be plenty of people wanting to go for a ride, and so this has some nice cruiser-level upgrades like a retro-style AM/FM head unit (needs speakers) with Bluetooth and R134a air conditioning. But no matter how many people come along, this makes sure the driver is always the priority. You have front bucket seats with a center console in-between, an upgraded wood-rimmed steering wheel, and white-faced Dakota Digital gauges. Plus, the hood tach is always fun in a stick shift car, and have you counted the gears on the shifter yet?
When you lift the hood, there's an instant understanding that this restomod has a modern powerhouse. It's a 6.2-liter fuel-injected LS3 powerplant. This is related to the final-gen GTO motor but with a larger displacement and more powerful version known for 425+ horsepower. The installation of this beast was done quite professionally, so it almost looks like the modern motor belonged within the satin black fender walls from day one. And this level of professionalism is seen throughout the whole powertrain. After all, a modern motor needs upgrading components to make the most of its big power. That's why you take full control with the Tremec TKO five-speed manual transmission. And while this is a forceful machine, it also has the right everyday easy kind of features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, wide Cooper Cobra tires, and a large DeWitts aluminum radiator to help keep the full package running cool.
Impressively powerful and an all-around fun driver, this rare '67 GTO convertible fulfills a big wish list. So if you're ready to drive an upgraded legend, call today!
