My new 67 - a weird combination??

G' Evenin. I'm new to this forum but have loved GTO's since I laid on my back as a kid and learned to turn wrenches with an awsome neighbor dude on a 65 way back in 1977.

I just picked up a 67 drag car. I have been decoding it and it is turning out to be a pretty wierd car. Color is Tyrol Blue. Interior Parchment. Ok so far. But it had a bench seat (236) and I think it was a column shift automatic. Did they make such an animal??

I am patiently waiting for the PHS docs. Just wondering if anyone has seen any like this.

Welcome to the forum, if I am reading my PHS correctly the bench seat and column shifter were available in the Basic Group (DLR#061). I've seen a few at local car shows. They also offered a 2bbl 400cid low compression economy engine in the GTO.

I have the black bench set in my '67 coupe, and its noted as such on the PHS stuff. I don't have column shifter. Welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the welcome and all of the insight. The car is far from original, but I'm thinking that it would be real cool to have the Parchment bench seat interior with the Butler Perf built 428 lurking under the hood!!

67/04GTO - do you have any pics of your 67?

Still looks sweet. Tore it apart? U must be restoring too. I didn't have mine 48 hours before I started ripping and tearing. I just got a Year 1 sale email for 15% off everything + 10% more if I spend a grand. Me thinks that 25% off justifies putting a big 'ol dent in the credit card. SBBS is promo code if anyone is interested.
