1967 Pontiac GTO, Calif Since New, “Black Plate”, Matching Numbers, Beautifully Restored, 1st Owner 41 Yrs!

Harry's Thoughts


This is a gorgeous two previous owner 1967 Pontiac GTO. This car has always been in Southern California and is absolutely rust free. It is in exceptional condition reflecting that it has always been cared for and cherished.

The first owner was a woman from San Bernardino, CA (now deceased). The car was bought new on May 5th, 1967 from Mission Pontiac Company in San Bernardino. The first owner took exceptional care of the car and enjoyed it for 41 years until she sold it to a pharmacist in Mission Viejo, CA in 2008. The pharmacist set out to make it a fantastic sympathetically restored car that could be enjoyed on trips to the office, tours or concours events. In 2008 he commenced a complete cosmetic restoration of the car from the frame up.

The paint and body work are absolutely fantastic. Certainly the best we have seen on a muscle car. The livery is done in the original Silverglaze metallic with a new black cordova top. All the moldings and gaskets are new and were done to perfection. All of the body panels are beautifully aligned and straight. The paint has been thoroughly rubbed out and is a smooth as one will find- far, far better than when the GTO was new! The previous owner stated that all the chrome and moldings are new or replated, however a couple of the trim pieces appear to us to be very nice originals.

The interior is done extremely well. The rare bench seat is hard to find. The door panels, seat coverings, carpet, headliner, visors are all new and perfect and are done to showroom standards. The glass is all perfect with no scratches or cracks. Everything works as it should, including the clock and the air conditioning.

The odometer reads 58,000. We are uncertain as to the total mileage. Although the gas pedal is close to perfect the brake pedal shows some wear. We have provided close up photos for your review. The 400 cubic inch V8 has the original four barrel carburetor producing 335 HP. The engine, transmission and rear end are all original matching numbers.

The car is equipped with the original factory options, including power steering, power brakes and air conditioning. The Rally Sport rims are beautifully restored and the red-line radials make it handle like a dream! The chassis is all original and excellent. The under carriage is clean and proper but had not been painted. We prefer this as it shows what a remarkable car this was to begin with!! For concours showing the engine compartment could use some detailing. For the most part this is not a concours rotisserie-type restoration. Instead, it is a sympathetic restoration (as-needed) to make the car nearly new in every respect while keeping some original unrestored features to show off how the car has been kept all its life!  The only modifications from stock known to us are the installation of  redline radials (rather then bias ply tires) a cluster of a few below dash gauges and a Pontiac aftermarket AM/FM stereo cassette player.

The Hagerty Value Guide shows that a No. 1 car sells for $69,800 and a No. 2 car sells for $55,400.  Our experience is that a documented California “black plate” car in exceptional condition sells for one grade above its condition.  Meaning this should be priced at a No. 1 level.  Read their value:  http://www.hagerty.com/valuationtools/HVT/VehicleSearch/Report?vc=87060

This is a rare and special opportunity to buy a true rust free beautifully restored “black plate” California GTO. These are getting incredibly hard to find and are increasingly leaving the US.
