Hi! New member, 67 GTO convertible restoration.
I'm a long-time GTO admirer, but never owned one, and also new to this site.
I've been into Camaros and Chevelles forever and know them fairly well, but I have a lot to learn on GTOs and Pontiacs in general.
I'm looking at buying my good friend's '67 GTO convertible (Cameo Ivory, black top, black interior) that his health is kinda forcing him away from completing it.
He's had it for a few years now and has made terrific progress on it, but now I have the oppurtunity to buy it from him. It sure does seem like it still has the original engine, trans, and rear, but can't be 100% on it.
Did Pontiac have vin or partial vins stamped onto the engine somewhere and trans?
I went and looked at the car last night and it's all disassembled, and the engine is very crusty (caked on oil) however, I was able to make out these #'s on the pad on the passenger side on the front of the block...
068755 ( is this engine production sequence? - not vin, right?)
WS (should be 360hp 400 with manual trans, right?)
Until further cleaning I dont' see any other numbers on the block. I'll have to get the pics off the single Quadrajet and post some pics soon.
The Muncie 4spd. trans is equally crusty and I did find a number P7P29 stamped vertically on the RH side at the very rear of the main case. Again I'll have to further clean it to find what other #'s are there.
So did Pontiac stamp vins on engines and tranny's for 67 GTO's? If so where to look?
