Cowl tag decoding and verification help please

Hi folks,

I'm new to this forum and would really appreciate if you guys can help me figure out this cowl tag on this GTO 1967 I'm trying to purchase.

1. Is the cowl tag real?
2. The color says 1-2 which I can't figure out I'm guessing its special order color? But I'm almost 100% sure the car is original signet gold

Any help would be great thx in advance

There was another thread on this for the 66 year that would be a good read for you: https://www.gtoforum.com/f12/my-new-6...nt-code-68498/

I would say you have a special paint that PHS does not know what color it would be and the -2 is a black vinyl top.

PHS can verify the car has a special paint request but Pontiac did not use any codes to state what the special color was.

For gold the special Pontiac Paints in 67 were Coronado Gold and there was a Copper Blaze as well. You could also request any GM paint that was not a Pontiac Color used by other GM makes. Code 1 paint I believe is Pontiac Paint though. You can get a PHS and ask more questions about your paint.

If you read that other link in post #2, PHS could not tell the owner what his paint color was.

I definitely recommend getting the phs packet. If there's any info they'll know. Also being a special order paint code you might also have some other rare options like a HO 400 or something. Nice rare find!

I would say Tiger gold as well, Tiger gold was introduced in 65 for the Hurst GTO and carried a special paint code for a few years. That adds value to your car.

I think in 65 it was called Hurst Gold and in 66 it was called Tiger Gold. Not sure if it was carried over into 67.
