“The Daddy” because it’s almost Father’s Day 😎
Pontiac GTO (Gen-1) (1964-1967)
The 1967 GTO is considered the 'daddy' when we are talking about old-school muscle cars.
The 1967 Pontiac GTO was voted the most famous muscle cars ever.
Built by a special division of General Motors in the early sixties, with John DeLorean at the helm. Initially it was intended for racing but they decided to redesign the Tempest into a “Super Tempest”, They used the V8 engine from the classical Pontiac Catalina (389 cu in – 6.4 L).
The 1964 model had a 389 engine, but this was upgraded to the 400 for the 1967 model. The new V8 6.4lt carburetor fed unit made approximately 335hp and could reach a top speed of 120 mph.
Pontiac offered 3 different engine output choices, the classic 400 came with 335hp, the economy version with only 265hp, while the beast high output came with a massive 360hp.
