The Pontiac GTO was built by Pontiac from 1964 to 1974.
The first generation GTO was a muscle car of the 1960s and 1970s era. Although there were earlier muscle cars, the Pontiac GTO is considered by some to have started the trend with all four domestic automakers offering a variety of competing models.
From 1964 and 1965 Tempest had the GTO option. In 1966 the GTO became its own model until 1972. In 1973 GTO became an option again but for the Le Mans. In 1974 GTO then became an option on the Ventura.
The GTO underwent a few styling changes in 1967. The louver-covered tail lights were replaced with eight tail lights, four on each side. Rally II wheels with colored lug nuts were also available in 1967. The GTO emblems located on the rear part of the fenders were moved to the chrome rocker panels. Also, the grill was changed from a purely split grill, to one that shared some chrome.
The 1967 GTO came in three body styles:
- Hardtop – 65,176 produced
- Convertible – 9,517 produced
- Sports coupe – 7,029 produced
Since the 1967 model year required new safety equipment, a new energy-absorbing steering column was accompanied by an energy-absorbing steering wheel, padded instrument panel, non-protruding control knobs, and four-way emergency flashers. A shoulder belt option was also featured, and the brake master cylinder was now a dual reservoir unit with a backup hydraulic circuit.
GTO sales for 1967 totaled 81,722.
The GTO was selected Motor Trend Car of the Year in 1968.
The GTO model was revived from 2004 to 2006 model years.
