In 1967, the majority of GTO orders opted for the hardtop variant, accounting for over 65,000 units of the total 81,722 production output. The convertible followed as the second most popular choice, with 9,517 units, while the coupe, also the most economical option, found its way to only 7,029 customers.

The base coupe, identified by code 07 in the VIN (following the 242, indicating a GTO), carried a price tag of $2,871. The hardtop commanded a higher price at $2,935, while the convertible (code 67) exceeded the $3,000 mark with a $3,165 price tag.

Without spoiling the surprise of viewing the images, it’s worth mentioning that this GTO, presented in an auction, retains its factory paint, still in good condition, though not flawless. Signs of rust are visible, prompting a thorough inspection of the undersides when placing the car on a lift.

Additionally, now let’s go more specific regarding the GTO’s history off the road. Desirable Autos and Classics, tasked with finding a new owner for this intriguing GTO, revealed that the car had been in storage since the mid-80s. It remained stationary, with the last registration sticker dated 1985.

Though believed to be original, the engine lacks definitive proof of its authenticity, while the power top features a non-functioning switch. Offered in a no-reserve auction, this GTO has garnered significant attention, with bidding reaching 27 bids within hours. Positioned in Springtown, Texas, potential buyers are encouraged to inspect the car firsthand or arrange for a third-party inspection, given its non-roadworthy condition necessitating transport via trailer.
